    Summer Series 7 & 8 - Sunday 1st July

    After the recent sun, heat and light winds, the forecasted wind on Sunday never managed to turn up. This didn't stop racing inn Gurnard Bay but the light and fickle breeze demanded lots of concentration and luck. The top three places in the fast handicap were taken by the RS100's of Mark Harrison, Giles Peckham and Al Dickson. The medium handicap was won by the Aero 9 sailed by Jane Peckham, followed by the chasing

Only James Downer and crew followed by Tim Wilkins and crew Thomas Leather persevered up to Baxters

    Wednesday Spring Series 3 - 2nd May

    The weather cleared on Wednesday evening for a fine evening of racing in a fresh north westerly. The plug was out in the solent so the race box set a challenging course around the bay keeping competitors off the shallows. Carl Blenkinsop took the bullet in the cats ahead of Shaun Kellett and Tony Wyeth. In the fast handicap Tim Harris reportedly forgot that an RS500 doesn't have wings which may have

    Mike Martin Memorial Race - Sunday 29th April

    The 15 knot cold North Easterly breeze didn't seem that inviting for the annual Mike Martin Memorial trophy. The race, designed to get all classes racing together on a single course, makes for an exciting time on the water and congestion on mark rounding. The final results are worked out on an average lap time basis allowing slower classes a chance of winning against the faster boats. 27 boats started. The majority of boats managed
