Young German Solo Transatlantic sailor visits WSC

Submitted by steve

Like a tired swallow alighting on a telephone wire during migration, ‘Shalom’, a battered-looking Hurley 22, came to rest yesterday on the pontoon in front of ‘Aliya’. The owner, Kristof, is making his way back to Hamburg, seeking help from fellow sailors as he goes, as he is now short of funds – no great surprise, having just done a 10,000 mile Atlantic circuit, celebrating his 19th birthday on the way!

Arcsine’s final JOG Offshore Race, Cowes to Cherbourg

Submitted by kathyC

A four-strong Weymouth crew left under the 8am bridge and eastwards towards Cowes for the 18.40 race start last Friday. Mike Street, Andy Heyting and Steve Fraser had joined me on Arcsine; we had hoped for a fast trip to Cowes but the Firing Range decided to send us offshore and the wind became dead astern 20+ knots, meaning some gybing and extra miles. We picked up a buoy off Cowes Front at about 15.00 and had a short rest before having our pre-race dinner - many thanks to Mike for the lovely meat balls! Just in time our final crew, Simon Hunt was dropped off having managed to get a lift from Gosport on Dogmatix.

Nick Sharp

Nick in the Caribbean

NICK SHARP passed away to the start line in the sky early in the morning of Wednesday 4th October having raced against cancer for some 18 months.
Nick had been a member of WSC for many years owning and racing many boats including Pink Stink, Wild Child, Salamandar and, probably the most memorable, Sharp Exit. Nick loved all yacht racing whether round the cans or offshore and sailed with many including Kenny Roebuck, Iain Jones, Andy Campbell-Watson, Rick Mead, Neil Prince, Nick Massey, Steve Fraser and many more.
