Long Standing Ambition: the first solo round Britain windsurf

Published by under Club Notices

A couple of years ago Jono Dunnett set off from Clacton to complete a Solo around Britain Windsurf and his first stop was Thorpe Bay. We invited him to the Balcony where he was offered his first hospitality of the whole trip.

Many people had previously done the circumnavigation, however always with a support boat. Jono completed it in 98 days, far short of the record but he had succeeded in his quest. He uses a quote in the front of the book “Dream is not what you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep”, something that helped him with his goal.

He has now written a book of the adventure and thought we would be interested to know it has now been published.

Winter and Icicle Series – Our Thanks

Published by under Racing

Just as we start our main sailing seasons I wanted to take the opportunity on behalf of the Sprints and I am sure the Lasers and all other classes, to thank every volunteer that has helped during the cold and unforgiving Winter and Icicle series. Without all of you we would  have not been able to continue to deliver competitive sailing.
