Another WSC sailor has had the wisdom to ship out to the antipodes and avoid the worst of the British winter. Kenny Roebuck has been competing in the Australian J24 Nationals in Melbourne on ‘Jet’ which just came 3rd overall. Well done Kenny! See here for more:

As the weather continues to howl and pour here in the Northern hemisphere, we might spare a thought for the crews who have braved the mixed bag of conditions in this year's Sydney-Hobart race, including that intrepid team of Frenchmen led by Gery Trenteseaux on 'Courrier du Leon'.

Weymouth Sailing Club’s traditional Boxing Day race went ahead this year despite some ferocious 40 knot gusts. Our new Commodore, Euan McNair, set a course that kept the nine brave competing boats out of the worst of the conditions, tucked safely in the relatively flat waters of Weymouth Bay.

Unfortunately the gusts proved a little too much for one boat, breaking its boom ‘like a cocktail stick’. We understand the musician on board succeeded in getting some interesting tunes out of the rigging beforehand though, including a high ‘C’ just before the snap.

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.

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.

Racing postponed for today due to a strong wind forecast.

It’s not long now before Weymouth welcomes the Squib fleet to compete in its famous waters.  And on top of the racing we want you and your families to really enjoy your stay in the town.  So we have got a programme for the evenings but we also know that you will want some time to explore the abundant restaurants, pubs and other distractions in the town.  The details of the programme will be given to you when you arrive in a Championship Handbook.  We won’t be asking you to make any decisions before you arrive.
