Caroline's January walk

Submitted by kathyC

25 members enjoyed an excellent walk from the Drax Arms, Bere Regis on Sunday. Caroline led a interesting varied walk through the woods, valley and heath-land. We had all dressed for a cold and windy day but had to strip layers as we seemed to be sheltered and then blessed with sunshine. Timing was excellent, arriving back at the Drax Arms for some great food and drinks. Looking forward to the next walk on February 10th. Photo outside Turnspuddle Church

Another year over

Submitted by GaryOwens

Hello Sailors

Well another year over and a new one just begun, as the song goes.

Congratulations to our winter series winners, Paul Elson in Orion who took 1st in IRC 4 with 4 bullets, closely followed by our commodore in Rumrunner, also with four bullets but lost out on countback.

Richard Woof in Jo 90 took first in IRC 3 with his 5 bullets, Arcsine and Passion also put up a good fight but was not enough, well there's always next year.

But onto the highlight of the racing calendar, The Boxing day Race .

Winter Series

Submitted by GaryOwens

Hello Sailors
Well after our summer of no wind and sunshine, who'd have thought of a winter like this... blown out kites, ripped mains, collisions and holes in boats but thankfully no injuries.
What's left of the fleet will still be out this Sunday for the penultimate race of the Winter Series.

One man and his boat – the voyages of Peter Rayner

Submitted by steve

In Homer's Odyssey, the hero is advised during his visit to the underworld, that to retire from the sea, he should walk inland with an oar on his shoulder until someone asked him what it was for. Another remarkable sailor, and WSC veteran, has recently done just that – Peter Rayner, long-time owner of ‘Tom Thumb’ the 22ft Pandora which used to moor near the crane.

It's November. Carry On Squibbing ....

Racing Squibs - but not at Weymouth

Ordinarily, on chilly Thursday mornings in November, most Squibbers can be seen shuffling along to the local public library for a read of the papers in the warm. Not so this season. Inspired by some glorious sailing during the October Thursday Morning race series, the Squibbers collectively decided to, …well, just carry on sailing in some Fun Races.

November Quiz Winners

Submitted by wsc.61

5 Lads and Debbie may not be the team name of the year, but having to make a decision 10min into the quiz, was all we could muster, not a good start. November quiz was the turn of the Gig Members to organise, and what a great night, to be greeted on arrival with Fish and Chips (pre ordered), bar fully stocked and the banter between gigs and sailing fully flowing, it was time for the serious stuff to begin. Our Bamber Gascoigne for the night was John (no not me) and his assistant Nadine who both fully admitted it was their first Quiz compering.
