Tricky Start for North Sails June Regatta
Tricky Start for North Sails June Regatta
With a bumper entry of 74 boats, racing at the North Sails June Regatta got under way with three races for all eight classes in the Eastern Solent.
With a strong westerly going tide and a light shifting breeze, good starting technique and anticipating the oscillations in the breeze were the keys to achieving the best performance.
In excess of three hundred sailors took to the two separate race courses in the Eastern Solent, and enjoyed the full hospitality of the Royal Southern's waterside Club House on the River Hamble.

Report:Louay Habib Images: Tim Wright
With five one design classes and a mixed IRC division of asymmetric yachts of similar speed, getting a good start at the Landsail Tyres J-Cup is crucial. The racing amongst the 66 examples of the J Boat design is nothing short of thrilling and spectacular.
A stronger gradient breeze, piping up to 16 knots, provided near planing conditions for the light weight flyers. Only two more races are scheduled for tomorrow's final day and favourites for the four UK National titles are emerging.

Event Report - 2016 Cowes / Deauville race
Event Report - 2016 Cowes / Deauville race
The annual pilgrimage to Deauville got underway on Friday morning of the May Bank holiday - with the start brought forward to 10.30 to ensure every boat made it through the lock gates at our destination.
The weather forecast looked great - sunshine and a light easterly wind, force 2 - 3, for the next 24 hours - but the weather had other ideas!

A Cool’ish View from Hot Rats
What a frustrating race and anyone sailing who persevered and finished deserved a prize!
The fleet thoroughly approved of the morning start which, in conjunction with the lock opening times, meant the fleet, given the average crossing times, would be in early morning. Unfortunately the weather forecast by Friday morning suggested that this might be a bit tight given the light to non-existent winds.
