RS Aero Demo

Submitted by MickRS200

Hello Folks

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.

The dirty dozen? More like the filthy eight!

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.

Novembers Yobs meeting was held at Moatt sail on Portland. Steve Moatt invited the Yobs to join him at his sail loft to not only see how sails are made but to actually make one.

The Trophée Jules Verne

Submitted by steve

Wandering around the Musée de la Marine in Paris the other day, waiting to meet the head of conservation for my research project, I came across the Trophée Jules Verne, which is one that, even if you won it, you couldn’t take home – nor would you want to, given its enormous size (about 10ft.).
