2020 sailing

Picture is not our new boat, just one I saw after a Sydney to Hobart. Next year is a Volvo Round Ireland year but it clashes with the 3 Peaks yacht Race which we won in 2018. We are also looking at the Scottish Islands Peaks Race which is in May so it is likely Wild Spirit will be spending time in Scottish waters.

Should have decisions by end of October so if you are interested in any of the 3 above races contact Paul ASAP.

More cruisng later in 2020 possibly up to Shetlands or Round Ireland.

Milebuilder success

The Mile builder plus RYA out to the Scillies ended up going to the Channel Islands and france instead due to too much wind for the Isles of Scilly forecast (and occurred) for the first 4 days of the 11 day trip.

Some super sailing including over 12 knots through the water 2 Qualifying passages and visiting Alderney, Dartmouth, Guernset, Cherbourg and St Vaast where we had a splendid last meal out together before returning , all under sail the 78 NM from there to the Solent in 12 hours.

Thanks to all on board for marvellous company and a great trip

Mile builder success

Wild Spirit and Spirit of Juno team member Shelf (Stuart Walker) on his way to win the 2019 Fellsman race. 12 hours for 60 miles so about the same sped as one of our RYA mile building trips but he went up and down 11,000feet as well, which we try and avoid.

Well done Dr Shelf.

Here we go Round….the IOW

The famous Round the Island Race is on Saturday and Wild Spirit will be racing along with over 1500 other yachts. Superb spectacle and great fun but not one to take too seriously as half the competitors won’t really know the rules.

After the race we have a couple of Mile builders then the Fastnet followed by a Mile building course out to the Scillies then back to Lymington
