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

YachtMaster Prep weekend

Pic–teach an old sea dog a new trick

As well as more Mile building sailing this summer we also have a couple of regulars getting ready for their YM Coastal so we are putting on a couple of weekends of assessment, development and practice with the first starting 31st May. No Qualifying Passages on this one as these are available on our RYA Milebuilder trips to France, the Channel Islands and Scillies. We have a maximum of 3’Students’ for the weekend but you can just come and sail, observe the process and gain experience.
