Cowes Week delivers the goods for the Royal Southern YC
Cowes Week delivers the goods for the Royal Southern YC
The weather gods provided the Royal Southern Yacht Club, one of the Cowes Combined Clubs that run the annual Cowes Week Regatta, the sort of summer event they used to get a decade ago! Conditions combined to produce a Cowes Week as good, if not better than, most of us can remember and the Royal Southern played its part in full.
More than 40 Royal Southern members entered their boats across the full range of classes, in addition to which members provided four Committee and Support boats and 30 Race officials.

Oysters at the Royal Southern
Oysters at the Royal Southern
Oysters don't get to race that often and so don't have IRC ratings. However David Tydeman, CEO of Oyster Yachts, is the custodian of results from many Oyster Weeks in the UK, Mediterranean and Caribbean, so there are Oyster ratings to race with and the results of Royal Southern Oyster Week 2016 show just how close that racing can be.

Ivy Green's Round The Island Race - (Inc Members Results)
Report & Images: Richard Jacobs
We make the most of the late start time and slip our mooring just after 7am. The forecast is for strengthening WSW wind, peaking off St. Catherine’s this afternoon, but it’s not cold and we should miss any rain.
We go for a single reef and the working No. 1 jib and staysail. It looks like the topsail and asymmetric will be staying in their bags.

Superb conditions prevailed for the final day of the North Sails June Regatta with a true south-westerly breeze piping up during the day to provide a wonderful finale to the regatta.
The regatta attracted well over 300 sailors to the club's superb facilities on the shore of the River Hamble, with world champion and Olympic competitors rubbing shoulders with Corinthian sailors, many of who were racing with their families.

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.
