YOBs - CoastWatch to Club - 10 April 2021

Submitted by hen1064

Our walk yesterday was a fantastic success- the weather gave us the perfect conditions and the YOBs and helpers were ready for the challenge. Our friends at CoastWatch waved each team off, the lovely Boatfolk at Portland Marina laid on hot chocolate and Easter eggs, and at the finish, the Club had donated soft drinks & snacks to join the delicious cakes that Daf Samways had baked for us all. Cash donations were received during the day taking our donation total to £2205, to be shared equally between CoastWatch and the YOBs.

Good to be back on the water. Nice change from Lulworth Cove for a day trip. Pick a day when the range isn't firing!!

Introducing a Club-friendly approach to Health, Safety & Environment

I’ve recently taken up the post as the club’s Health, Safety & Environment Coordinator, yes, Weymouth Sailing Club now has one of these, but no need for alarm, so I hope you'll read on!

New Clubhouse Pontoon- The story so far.

Submitted by nik911

Following on from the success of the Cove Pontoon project, the Moorings and Yard team moved their attention to the vacant water outside of the Clubhouse.

The main aim from the onset was to provide a mooring with walk ashore access for the clubs committee boat, Viking.

2020 - What happened?!

Whilst the years often feel shorter than anticipated, it is not often the case that we can refer back to specific weeks (or even days) with a level of clarity that we can now. Like book marks in time, we all remember where we were when we watched The Prime Minister’s now infamous address to the nation and our feelings at his words that have etched themselves into our collective psyche: “You must now stay at home”. Doubtless too, we all recall Her Majesty’s reference to the late Dame Vera Lynn’s “We’ll meet again” in her unprecedented peace time address to the nation.

Who Dares Wins

The weather forecasters had poured scorn on any chance of the clubs traditional Boxing Day race with storm Bella ready to ruin the day.

The commodore spent more time poring over weather charts than he did pouring cream over his mince pies on Christmas day, hoping for a weather window.

Winter Series is Go

Submitted by gav14all

So, Lockdown 2.0 ended. The dinghies tried and as usual the weather gods ensured they failed, and so it turned to the Keel Boats and Squibs to restart the delayed winter sailing at Weymouth Sailing Club.

Those who live north of Portland woke up to be greeted with a cold and frosty Sunday morning. Sometimes this would have put a few off, but after 4 weeks without sailing, there was a childish excitement among the cove pontoons on the morning of Sunday 6th December 2020, and no one even noticed the fickle NNE blowing, and it was only just above freezing. We all just wanted to go sailing!

Branches Everywhere

It was good to see so many members around the club last weekend. Many were to be found beavering away in both yards giving them a good tidy up under the gentle leadership of Graham May, Yard secretary.

That irresistible G-force...

Submitted by steve

Glorious sunshine, a moderate northerly breeze and neap tides made up the setting for Sunday’s race, in which an encouraging total of 24 boats competed in three classes. Weymouth bay never ceases to demonstrate just how perfect its racing conditions can be!
