Byron Marathon this Sunday 7th August

We have had some epic days out on the water this year - last Sunday was almost perfect, with a steady Sea Breeze over a flat sea and wall to wall sunshine - fantastic! It makes me wonder why there are so many cobwebs growing between some of the boats in the compound...

This coming Sunday it's time for our next event, we have 3-4 SW and Sunshine forecast at the moment so unless you are out of the country or otherwise indisposed, come down to the club and sail with us, or head out on your own, making the most of our fantastic location.

This Sunday we will be running the Byron Marathon. Don't be put off by the daunting sounding name, it's a fun multi lap race which includes marks in Langstone Harbour and just out of the Harbour Entrance within sight of the club - it's a bit like a mini Solent Forts Race...

If you want to be involved in the race, the briefing will be at 11am and we'll try to get going as soon after that as possible.

Like usual, everyone is welcome, no excuses:

  • Safety boat (tick)
  • Wind - 3-4 (tick)
  • Sun - Hat on (tick)
  • Water Temp - Like a cool bath (tick)
  • All abilities (tick)
  • Hot showers in the club house (tick)

See you on Sunday then?
