Some of you may have noticed the yellow buoy on the harbour side. The Harbour Master informs me this is a replacement for the buoy we know as D or Destroyer. The new buoy is part of an improvement scheme for the degaussing range. It will be laid when the weather improves!

Liftout using the derrick

A favourable weather window prompted a hasty call for volunteers to lift the remaining 9 racing marks... the other 5 had decided to make their own way ashore over the past few months !

Less than 24 hours later 12 volunteers mustered on Saturday afternoon to undertake the Club's messiest and probably most enjoyable annual task.

While checking to see when and if it was going to stop raining today (probably not), I found this image of an impressive cold front sweeping down to where my friend Olivier is at the moment sailing to the Caribbean and some sunshine in his 67ft yacht Capo di Fora.

Well as winter winds increase mark O comes to its favourite garden on Greenhill! This is not the first time this little blighter has been loafing on the patio. Hopefully it will arrange a taxi ride to the club!

Building on the history of the club on the website, we are in the process of creating a digital archive from photos, slides, etc. to which everyone is invited to contribute; all you have to do is to lend us your memorabilia for a few days and we will have them processed. The results will be available for everyone to see, and occasional forays into the archive willl appear here as well.

What with the weather getting a bit autumnal (though the sail over was in ideal conditions), four nights moored at Alderney in winds up to 35 knots was not my idea of comfort on a boat, but it meant I could meet up with friends Georges and Catherine, who were on their way back from Guernsey, visit the museum and walk round some of the island with them, as well as attend the two-day Henry Euler Memorial Trust maritime history symposium on 'Alderney, The Channel Islands & Anglo-French Relations 1689 – 1918', with a number of eminent French and British speakers.
