September Ladies Afloat
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
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 ...

June Mid Week Rally 2015
June Mid Week Rally 2015
The venue for our 3rd mid week of the season was Bucklers Hard. Sadly the forecast of force 5 to 6 winds put a lot of members off making the trip down the Solent in particular the motor boats. But 3 sailing yachts made it. The strong wind was in the north east so the sail do...

Sailability Day Report & Images
Sailability Day Report & Images
On the 6 June the Southern hosted a Sailability day for Deaf Sailing UK.
The 17 guests arrived for coffee at the club, where they were welcomed by the Commodore. They were then allocated to the various members' boats including Dino Volante, Samiotissa, Wetwheels, Up to Speed and a RIB. They then set off for a day sailing in the Solent. The scene in Cowes was enhanced by the presence of some beautiful classic yachts and royal yachts that had assembled for the Royal Yacht Squadron bicentenary review.

Club Pursuit Race Report
Club Pursuit Race Report
Whilst the summer sun did kindly appear for the Club Pursuit Race the wind was forecast to be absent which certainly set a challenge for the Race Office Stuart Childerley.
With competitors from all sections of the Club sailing fraternity the boats ranged from a lovely Ed Burnett gaff cutter, through many of the cruising fraternity, and across to various racers in the Club.
It is a tribute to the handicapping that the first three boats of varying sizes crossed with about twenty five seconds between them but the Commodore just squeezed in Hot Rats between Xtract and Din Volante by seven seconds on Dino Volante with Xtract some twenty seconds behind in third.

May Ladies Afloat
May Ladies Afloat
Yet some more lovely weather for our May Ladies Afloat and this time we had 5 ladies to take sailing on 2 boats, Resolute and Dino Volante. The wind was blowing gently from the West as we sailed across to Cowes in the sunshine. There were quite a few yachts out as it was half-term holida...

May Rally to Lymington
May Rally to Lymington
The forecast for the appointed day - Tuesday 19th May- was not good, winds from the west with gusts up to 35 knots, with or without rain. Long experience of Lymington rallies shows that only the most determined yachtsmen, possibly wearing hair shirts, will set off from Hamble in such conditions, and this was no exception...
