Academy Frostbite Day 1 Report

The Royal Southern Academy's 2017 programme got off to a flying start on Saturday 28th January. 
With a steady breeze of 8 - 12 knots and glorious sunshine belying the winter weather of the previous week; day 1 of the frostbite series represented some top-quality winter sportsboat racing.
The race committee made best use of the fantastic early season conditions, squeezing in 5 good races in the usual short course windward - leeward format of Academy racing.

Gentlemen's Lunch report
Gentlemen's Lunch report

The sell-out inaugural Gentlemen's Lunch organised by the Ladies Committee can fairly be described as a great success.
The highlight of the event, however, was the post-lunch speech by Noj White, who entertained the assembled with numerous tales of his career with BOAC and later British Airways as a Concorde and Boeing 747 pilot, not all of which would be repeatable in mixed company.

October Folly Rally Weekend.
October Folly Rally Weekend.

Typically, the annual late Cruiser supper marks the official close of the season when we Cruisers reminisce about the good times we have had through the year in the 25 or so events that the Cr/Committee have put on. Friday 14th October was no different.
A healthy compliment of members sat down to a great supper of tasty Gammon in sauce (Chairman's favourite - thanks Maggie) followed by Summer Fruit Tart - another popular choice. Most of us decided to team this appropriately with what was not quite the last of the summer wine, whilst viewing the member's action photos on the large TV screen.
