Warm winds and sunshine saw a good turnout for this year's Island Cup with 9 boats starting and finishing including 6 Dart 18s. Conditions were lighter than expected with a shifting NE wind for the seafront and Chichester harbour legs favouring those at the front of the fleet. After a mostly liquid lunch stop at Langstone Sailing Club, and with the wind now blowing from the SW, the fleet squeezed their way through the old railway into Langstone harbour searching for the best wind for the beat home.
Hayling Ferry Sailing Club have been chosen to host the 2017 F18 UK National Championships which will be held over the August bank holiday weekend from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th August.
Planning is well under way for this prestigious event and we look forward to welcoming all competitors to our club.
Many thanks to all members who have volunteered to help.
It's time for the spring season racing and in a change to the traditional routine, we will be changing the format a little.
First off, there will be 3 shorter races rather than 2 longer ones. The first 2 will be back to back. Everyone is welcome, whether experienced or not - the emphasis is on inclusion rather than serious racing, so if you've never done it before, why don't you give it a go in a safe and welcoming environment.
