Day skipper course on Mojo J 120

Ade - our Instructor called a briefing session several weeks before the course to identify expectations and reinforce the theory we had learned during the evening classes run by Kathy.

Foggier and foggier...

Submitted by steve

The fog was hanging around all week, though (FLW*) 'the forecast said it would clear', and at 0530 on Friday morning there was good visibility and a SW breeze, so off I set, imagining a pleasurable sail across to Weymouth to conclude a very pleasant month in France...

Snakes and ladders at the Summer Regatta

IRC3 after the start

Again light winds were the order of day at last Sunday's one-day mini regatta. Racing started on time for a windward/leeward course with a SSE wind no more that 6 knots.

Squib Training Sunday - A Jolly Good Day Out

Submitted by jim1123

Following a similar event last season, seventeen Club members presented themselves for Squib training on 27th May, Bank Holiday Sunday, determined to have a jolly good day out. The weather forecast promised thunderstorms and an overcast sky but the weather Gods smiled benevolently and, instead, we enjoyed glorious sunshine and light winds.

Woolly hats and suncream for La Weymouth

Submitted by steve

These essential items typify the weather for the last few weeks as the anticyclone continues - wintry nights and glorious sunny days, with capricious winds to boot. The forecast for la Weymouth was flat calm, though clearly sufficient libations had been poured for the gods to smile on us; as the boats gathered for the start, a breeze filled in from the east and we were off upwind to la Truite in the passe de l’Est, then to bear away a bit for Weymouth on the kind of reach which makes sailing the Channel such a pleasure.

SORC visit

Submitted by she

The Solo Offshore Racing Club made a visit to WSC on Saturday night 12 May. They are a group of sailors based in the Solent who race their boats single-handed in a series of off-shore races. The first leg from the Solent on Friday night was in very light winds making it a tortuous trip and several boats turned back. Those who carried on arrived in Weymouth, mostly under motor, during Saturday afternoon.

News from Normandy

Submitted by steve

A quiet Sunday aboard, and it seems a long time since I left Weymouth ten days ago. A pleasant crossing mostly under engine left plenty of time for reading, though a thermal breeze allowed me to arrive under sail as one should, and in time to race aboard the Sigma in the CNC Thursday series, when we came second by a few seconds. It felt good to be back with Thierry and his crew after a long winter in England.

Squib Regatta at Oulton Broad

Aerial filiming at Oulton Broad

The reason we weren't at the squib dinner last Saturday is because we slogged the 280 miles to Oulton Broad/Lowestoft for the Broadlands Regatta. It was great fun and good sailing.

6 Nauti Girls go sailing

Submitted by Charlotte

6 Nauti girls go sailing... (see what I did there?!)

Last Sunday 11.15am; 5 of us girls headed to the pontoon to meet Kathy and ‘Arcsine’. This was a chance for a few of us female sailors to have some expert tuition without the time constraints that happen all too often during racing.
