Sailability July 2016
The forecast was for breeze at 12-17kts; we had upwards of 25kts. Undaunted, 35 guests on 5 club boats and Wetwheels set off from the club. The sun shone on us and everyone had a great day on the water. There was a trip up Southampton water with a more sheltered run up to Burseldon and a dash across the Solent to East Cowes or the Folly. The team on Wetwheels even managed a run ashore in...

Bembridge Rally Report
Bembridge Rally Report
Report & Images: Pat North
It's true; the sun does shine in Bembridge After two years of poor weather we were treated to the best of the summer. Eight yachts and 4 motorboats made their way to the splendid Bembridge Harbour. It was a real vacation and we enjoyed an evening pontoon party in shorts and T shirts after which some ate on the boat and others ventured to a restaurant in St Helen's. The walk back from t...

Ladies Afloat 25th May 2016
Ladies Afloat 25th May 2016
10 ladies in 2 yachts, a gentle northerly, spent a happy time sailing to and lunching in Wootton Creek. We rafted together on the pontoon and transferred crews, good food and wine to one boat and did what the ladies do best. Have fun! The time rushed by and we had to make a fast passage under engine back to the Hamble just in time to catch the very last launch to the RSrnYC. Report &...

Mid week rally to Beaulieu
Mid week rally to Beaulieu

"Early sun on Beaulieu water lights the underside of oaks"

It wasn't quite like John Betjeman's poem 'Youth and Age on Beaulieu River' when the hardy bunch of mid week ralliers sailed round to Bucklers Hard.  In spite of the weather 12 boats went to Bucklers Hard bringing around 30 people to a very lively pontoon party.

2016 Solent Cruiser Race
2016 Solent Cruiser Race
After a week of very cold weather the forecast for the May Bank holiday weekend did not look too good. But as luck would have it we managed to skip most of the rain on Saturday and Sunday and it did warm up a bit.
The breeze was gentle from the Northwest and the sun was shining but clouds bubbled up when the wind went round to the Southwest.

Folly Rally - April 2016
Folly Rally - April 2016

The first mid week rally of the season got off to a flying start with 12 boats and 28 people who were all determined to enjoy themselves as you can see - far more than usual for this time of the year. There was no wind on the Tuesday so most of us motored but an intrepid Mike Austin on 'Up to Speed' had a spinnaker run the whole way from Port Solent.

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?
