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.
If you want to try her out you need to book a slot.

Weymouth Sailing Clubs annual beer festival is on track to reach the £500 target it set itself to raise for Chesil Sailability.
With ten ales, all brewed locally, from Lyme Regis Brewery in the West of the county to Six Penny brewery in the East, there is something for everyones palate.
Well done to all that worked hard over the long winter evenings and successfully completed their Day skipper theory course.
A BIG thank you to Cathy who's perseverance carried us all over the finish line.
We the happy few are now qualified to go out in any vessels, go anywhere and get lost
As long as the sun is shining !

Memories of Bob Roberts
It's takes a special breed of person to deal with dirt on the scale of the annual mark lifting!
Every year, all the racing marks are hauled out onto Viking and then brought ashore for a good clean, re-painting and maintenance on their tackle. It's filthy, exhausting work but essential if we're to have marks to race around for the rest of the year.
