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.

If you are not content with simply racing, or perhaps just prefer to travel in a more relaxed manner afloat, the Royal Southern Cruising Section boasts a fine and varied selection of activities for members and friends to participate in.

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...
