YOUTH ON BOATS - JANUARY 2020 UPDATE

Winter Walk

Submitted by sin269

Twenty eight club members walked from the Acorn Inn, Evershot to Melbury Osmond church and back via Melbury Sampford. After the walk (5.5 miles) there was an excellent lunch in the bar at the pub.
The next WSC walk (about 6 miles) will be on Sunday 9th February from the Marquis of Lorne, Nettlecombe DT6 3SY, starting at 10am. If you hope to come please let Jill or Caroline know the week before for pub numbers and please order your food before 10am on the day.

9 marks and 10 anchors by the Dirty Dozen!

Liftout using the derrick

A favourable weather window prompted a hasty call for volunteers to lift the remaining 9 racing marks... the other 5 had decided to make their own way ashore over the past few months !

Less than 24 hours later 12 volunteers mustered on Saturday afternoon to undertake the Club's messiest and probably most enjoyable annual task.

YOBs Review of 2019

This year we have had a great year for fun including getting the Optimists out for the little ones, learning how to sail and once again the return of sailing rugby. Sailing rugby is a very complicated and intricate game in which the boats are evenly split for teams and the ball is thrown and the first team to get the ball to their buoy wins; however you may only hold the ball for 30 seconds and you can be tackled by the touch of a hand on a boat. This game has improved a lot of our tacking and gybing skills and has also improved our competitive spirit (if that is possible of course).

While checking to see when and if it was going to stop raining today (probably not), I found this image of an impressive cold front sweeping down to where my friend Olivier is at the moment sailing to the Caribbean and some sunshine in his 67ft yacht Capo di Fora.

Well as winter winds increase mark O comes to its favourite garden on Greenhill! This is not the first time this little blighter has been loafing on the patio. Hopefully it will arrange a taxi ride to the club!
