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...

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!

CoastWatch to Club YOBs Sponsored Walk

On 7 November 2020 the YOBs are taking part in a sponsored walk to raise funds jointly for CoastWatch and for themselves. Any money raised will be split equally between the two causes. The walkers will either walk from Portland Bill back to the Club, or for those with shorter legs from Portland Marina to the Club. The Marina have generously offered to provide a half way fuelling station for the walkers providing hot chocolate and cake. The CoastWatch to Club Walk will be run in full accordance with Government legislation in force on that date.

2020. Didn't quite go as planned.

Well I didn’t expect that!

At the end of 2019 I had a quite specific objective for 2020. Having raced in the Junior Offshore Group (JOG) on and off since 2016, most of which has been on Arcsine, I decided that I wanted to do a full JOG offshore season. Of course that would have meant trying to find another boat or boats for those times that Kathy is double handed with someone else. I had a few leads ranging from a very laid back J120 to a class winning 1969 Sagitta 35.

The Time That Land Forgot

A last gasp cruise to rinse the last of the sun out of the summer was planned by fellow Achilles 9m owners for the week commencing 20th September. The plan was a lazy sail to Swanage on the Sunday morning with a convenient mid morning flood tide, then a wander across to Yarmouth next morning. It was planned to return on Wednesday.

Arcsine wins Doublehanded Class in The Lonely Rock Race 2020
At the end of last year RORC announced they were going to change the finish of the next Fastnet Race to Cherbourg. Amateur crews were not in favour of this as this as it would make the race 15 to 20% longer, passing through the busy Shipping Lanes and extreme tides(who wants to be sucked down the Alderney Race!)

Youth On Boats Update – September 2020

Submitted by hen1064

The Youth sailors enjoyed the opportunity for competitive racing at their annual regatta. Thirteen boats raced around the course set up in the Bay on a blustery Friday evening. This was the first chance for some of the newer cadet members to experience the rules of racing. The Opi sailors valiantly chased the faster Fevas but in spite of their best sailing efforts could not catch up. Prizes were awarded to all classes. The Benjamin Samuel Prize for overall winner was awarded to Ruby Staples and Freddie Miners.
