School sailing taster day 3

Wet play. The forecast didn't look as promising for day 3 of the school taster sessions. Will Howitt (one of our dinghy instructors) moved the initial briefing under cover into the club house ground floor. By the time the briefing was over the children couldn't wait to get out onto the water despite the continuing rain. Their enthusiasm was rewarded when the sun came out (briefly) and a gentle breeze blew down the river, More »

School sailing taster day 2

Rescuing the Wanderer during storm Francis

Unfortunately the Wanderer on the mooring adjacent to the club house capsized during storm Francis. The strong wind and waves pounded the boat's mast into the mud so that when a rescue mission was launched it took multiple attempts before the mast was extracted from the creek mud. The boat was pulled clear using a harness formed by joining together the painter and the main sheet which was secured to the mast through the centre-board More »
