Southerns before Summer Break

Southerns before Summer Break

With Cookham being an absolute drifter lottery Penny won all three races with no luck involved at all (seriously well done Penny masterclass of fluky wind sailing). We now are all looking forward to stretching our legs for the last salt water sail of the year at Royal Lymington YC on 15th-16th July before a Summer break. Then is back with a bang and the Nationals on 2-3rd September. It still all open in the travelers series.

Sea Champs Next!

Sea Champs Next!

Who can forget the gales we sailed in at Thorpe Bay last year! Well all of you who did not go I suppose… Don’t miss out this year, with free camping on the grass on the seafront and great sailing you would be missing out if you don’t give it a go.

Its all Over now

Its all Over now

So the Rum & Mince pies is over and the Season comes to a close. No doubt who won the travelers series with minimum points the title goes to Simon Hopkins of Up River Yacht club. Always there or there about in past years Simon was (almost) unbeatable after purchasing Robbie’s new championship winning boat from 2015. Bryan Westley gets the award for the most traveled. I don’t think he missed an open meeting and was rewarded with the Silver Fleet trophy at the Nationals and the Series and having secured his first win at...
