Paul Gets Wet

We are busy updating the web site and I came across a video of me and a couple of others recovering a sail on our way to winning the Lord Howe Island race in 2012

Just after the video finishes we are all washed about 2 metres backwards along the deck but successfully change the sail.

RYA Success

The RYA course from 11th to 16th July went well and with agreat crew we even had a spinnaker up on the first day as we ran from Lymington to Weymouth on the tide and a SE wind.Video on https://youtu.be/YawdW73FJH0 Lulworth range had stopped firing by the time we passed Anvil point so we sailed close into the World Heritage site Jurrassic Coast before arriving in Weymouth. The next day we sailed back to Poole then took in Studland, Yarmouth, Cowes and a total of 121 miles before arriving safely back in Lymington.
