Hi All, Apologies for the slightly later publishing of start times for the Tony Bennett Pursuit - time has been a little short for me recently. Please find the start times here In summary the first start is 1500 and the race will last for 100 minutes. Any questions I'll be at the club from about 1100 tomorrow or drop me an email. If you can't see your boat then let me know and I will produce a start time. Cheers Nick
So far, the start of season racing for yachts has had some fantastic conditions - warm weather, sunshine and good winds. Sunday's IRC3 class race was won by Saskia VII and IRC4 by Pepper of Kinsale.
After what has seemed like a long winter, the beautiful weather meant it was suddenly time to go sailing again, combining racing and cruising in the best possible way, linking Weymouth and Cherbourg for what promises to be another step forwards in liaison between the clubs.
Because I had replaced the flexible hoses in my gas system following a survey last year, my insurers wanted a ‘gas-safe’ certificate so that one of the things they are insuring me for doesn’t happen! Needless to say, I had left this till the last moment, but I was lucky to get hold of Stuart at the aptly-named Gas Safe Marine, who kindly agreed to test the system first thing on Monday morning; this meant an early passage to the Cove in the chilly Spring mist to meet up with him, and water up at the same time.

Sunday 19th of March was the final walk in the annual Winter Walks with Caroline Nairn. All of the walks start from a car park, which is conveniently attached to a pub and surprisinngly end with a thirst quenching sup and meal.
The what is now, Weymouth Sailing Club annual beer and cider festival, exceeded all expectations, with happy punters, happy sponsors, a happy treasurer and delirious England and Welsh Rugby supporters.
I have arranged a special price and more importantly a Demo boat for the 19th of May.
The RS Aero is a fantastic little single hander compared with the Laser for example.
