Old Club Photographs Needed

Published by under Club Notices


For the club’s 70th anniversary we are collecting a photographic history. I have some great stuff from the 1960s (including the Little Americas Cup) and from 2010 onwards but I am keen to find more for the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s.

I will be trawling through my parents photo albums and the the club website but it would be great if you could send me any brilliant photos you have of the club over the years. I’m keen to include lots of people (as well as boats!) and the clubhouse, slipway, bosun’s hut etc.

If you could email scanned pics to [email protected] by 4th May I would be most grateful. If you only have the orginals then please put them in an envelope with your name on and leave them at the bar, we will copy and return them.

Please don’t be disappointed if your memories are not included if you don’t send anything in!

Cadet Sail and Race Training

Published by under Cadets

Last week, over 20 Cadets attended a 3 Day Race Training Event for 11+ year olds. Twelve boats took to the water on the last day of the School Easter holidays and enjoyed some intense training to boost their skills and confidence in making good starts and effective beating.  On Saturday, the wind disappeared and we were left with a bunch of eager youngster in their wetsuits still ready to go.  Although, sailing was impossible, we engaged in paddle races and a trip to the ‘Jack-up barge’ (looking like an Oil Rig) moored just inside the deep water channel. On Sunday, the wind improved and training resumed. Tacking was fast and furious, as the Cadets took their training seriously and progress was being made by all. At the de-briefing, it was clear to see that everyone had enjoyed their time on the water and their efforts had improved their Racing ability.  Congratulations to those gaining the first three positions in the main two races:  Friday, 1st Isabella and Sophie, 2nd Dom and Tom, 3rd Daniel.  Sunday, 1st Daniel (Pico) and Luke (Laser), 2nd Sam and Louise, 3rd Adam and Taylor.

This weekend:

Saturday:  Stage 2 training (prebooked) with Nick Cotgrove,

Sunday:     Cadet Sail Training with Andras Gal

Next Sunday 29th April:     Cadet Race Training 11+ with Nick Alston
