OOJAH's Atlantic Odyssey
OOJAH's Atlantic Odyssey
Another in our occasional Cruising Logs series.
We are now well & truly weathered in with heavy rain showers & 25 kts of wind gusting to 35 so we're rocking a bit in the outer harbour. We met up with some old Guernsey friends for lunch at the Guernsey YC & are joining Tim & Karen Gabriel tonight so it's not too bad, but when we'll be on our way goodness knows?

Christmas Rally 2015
Christmas Rally 2015
A gloomy, dank December day did not deter 19 boats from making it across the Solent to Cowes for the annual Christmas Rally - this year hosted by the Royal Yacht Squadron. Half the boats took advantage of their Haven and were counting their blessings as the heavens opened in the afternoon but the powers above were smiling on the Cowes Yacht Haven contingent and allowed a break in the weath...

A Bash at the Baltic
A Bash at the Baltic
Another in our occasional "Cruising Logs" series. This time from Members Mike and Louis Dellar aboard Vela cruising the Baltic in September 2014.
The week before we were due to leave, everyone took pleasure in telling us what a wonderful forecast we had for getting to the Baltic; and buoyed by this we began to dream of a single hitch to Lowestoft, a day's rest, then on to Holland, etc, etc.
Mmm.....first day we overslept, and for our penance, spent the next 12 hours beating into a light easterly. By the time we had got past Brighton the wind was down below 8 knots, so we decided enough was enough, and bailed out into Newhaven.

Folly Rally October 2015
Folly Rally October 2015
More than 25 boats both power and sail were booked in for the Folly Rally this year.
Most people arrived by lunchtime on Saturday and those that chose to sail had a good breeze from the north if a little on the chilly side.
There was the usual pontoon party that started about 1800 and, as the pontoon filled up, it sank.

ICOYC Chesapeake Bay Cruise Oct 2015
ICOYC Chesapeake Bay Cruise Oct 2015
A few days before our arrival in Annapolis we realised that hurricane Joaquin was going to have an affect on our cruise.
Members of the various worldwide clubs met at the Annapolis Yacht Club around noon on Friday 2 October to catch a bus to the Naval Academy.
In the pouring rain we visited the various parts of academy ending up in the museum where there were an amazing number of models of naval ships, mainly British, built in England in the 17 century.

September Ladies Afloat
For our last Ladies Afloat day of 2015 we had all Ladies on the 2 boats, Dino Volante and Rin Jinn. As usual we met at the club for coffee and decided which Ladies were going on which boat and also of course where we were going. Cowes was the favoured venue as it is an easy ...

Yarmouth Midweek Rally
Yarmouth Midweek Rally
There was a meet of 16 boats and their crews in Yarmouth for the September midweek rally. The promise of good weather must have been the trigger that made us let go the mooring lines and set off for Yarmouth on a strong spring tide. The forecast was for North Westerly winds but the sea br...

2015 Cruiser Race Report
2015 Cruiser Race Report
Luckily most of the Cruiser Race fleet got away to Cherbourg before the strong winds came in. Sadly Watermark and Bambella did not make it in time to get the benign wind. The rest of us assembled in Cherbourg by Saturday morning.  
The forecast for Sunday our departure day for Carteret was for force 5 to 6 South west winds gusting to force 7 so the decision during our supper at the Cherbourg Yacht Club was for a delayed start and in fact the forecast was for even stronger wind on Monday.

Newtown Creek Rally
Newtown Creek Rally
Tuesday's forecast was for a blustery day but, undaunted, 5 boats set off for Newtown Creek. There was the typical wind over tide situation leading to a short chop. The sail was made more interesting by the Classic Yachts racing in their regatta, some beautiful 8 and 6 metres, ...

Horse and Jockey Rally
Or "Living Dangerously on the River Cur" Our fleet of two motor boats, three RIBs, the Bewes' Barouche, a kayak and a paddleboard were an impressive sight on the Upper Hamble. However on the River Cur, that beautifully narrow final leg, a combination of lowish tides ...
