WSC's Al Doughty @ Antigua Jolly Harbour Regatta 20-21 Nov

Submitted by wsc

I have just returned to a Grey cold Blighty after two fantastic weeks in Antigua. The Hotel I was staying at was just 400 yards from Jolly Harbour Yacht Club (JHYC), so on day one I decided to check out the club and the Harbour. The Harbour area is about the size of Weymouth marina and is filled with hundreds of Sailing boats of all shapes and sizes many still situated ashore awaiting to be craned back into the water for the Winter season. I viewed the JHYC notice board and to my delight the annual club regatta "Notice of Race" was displayed & being held on the 20-21st Nov and crew wanted notices were also on display - I applied to one of the notices.

WSC offers support to our friends at Cherbourg Yacht Club

Submitted by steve

The Commodore and members of WSC wish to express their sympathy and support for the members of Cherbourg Yacht Club and all those people affected by the attacks in Paris on Friday.

Many YCC members live and/or work in Paris – when I rang club secretary Anne Mataguez she told me that a cousin of hers had been in the Stade de France, and that many people in Cherbourg would have had family in Paris at the time.

The tricolore will fly at half-mast at the club during this week to demonstrate our support at this difficult time.

The new Squib at Rondar Raceboats

Submitted by sin269

Twelve WSC Squibbers visited Rondar, the new official builder, to view a prototype of the proposed new Squib. The hull and deck are the same shape (taken from the existing moulds) but the internal layout has been modified to make the cockpit self draining, and most of the internal structure is a single moulding which greatly ...

Cherbourg - Now, Then and Next Year!

Submitted by steve

It’s official – we like Weymouth so much we’re adding a day to the Transmanche weekend, so that we have a day to enjoy Weymouth and meet friends at Weymouth Sailing Club! Such is the feeling at Cherbourg Yacht Club, and it will be up to us at WSC to add to the traditional culinary reception organised so admirably by Steve and Josie and Cheryl, maybe with an inter-club sailing event in the Bay – I favour an event with the results of every boat from each club counting! Or a duel in Grand Surprises, perhaps..

WSC hosts the 2015 National Squib South Coasts

Submitted by wsc

On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September Weymouth SC hosted the National Squib South Coast Championships. Visitors came from as far north as Merseyside, as far as west as Plymouth and Suffolk in the east – a sizeable armada even came from overseas, well, the Isle of Wight.

The weather forecast had been looking dodgy for quite a few days so we all expected a lively wind with some rain – fortunately the latter didn't materialise. Two days of superb sailing were enjoyed by all.
