Sallyforth 5&6

The climax of the Sallyforth Series today was gladiatorial battle against a force 6 south westerly. The black rain clouds approaching from Faversham  kept a few sailors ‘in doors’,  six boats and ten sailors launched. Unfortunately, Paul Carter stabbed one of his rudders on sto...

Saturday 1&2

The first two races in the Saturday series proved cold and choppy. The wind worked its way from 11mph to 24 and  back again and backed and veered to keep the 10 hardy sailors on their toes. The two Dart 18s failed to make much of an impact on the D15s despite their crews being out on ...

Neap Pursuit 3-4

A couple of degrees warmer wind creeping over the seawall masked the latent power in the 24mph South Westerly that greeted the 14 sailors on Saturday. Late tides always create a unique sailing atmosphere at Seasalter and this evening the sunny spells were losing the fight against blackening skies. T...

Easter Sunday Sun

Sunday saw cold fingers despite the sun, A steady15mph NE swept 15 boats along nicely. RO Bob W squeezed every drop of water out of the tide as sailors negotiated the 'W' course. Three 18's put to sea for the first time this year and enjoyed tussling for line honours. Five &nbs...

Easter Saturday Blow

Easter Saturday saw the duty team deal admirably with the strong NE wind and substantial swell. PB1 recovered Charlie's disabled Sprint 15 taking on water from a damaged transom which had lost the use of a rudder as a result. Well done to the PB crew; ...

Gentle start to the Sailing Season

Easter got off to a gentle start with benign weather treating a fleet of 10 boats to a technical couple of races. A strong tideway again effected its influence near the marks. Terrific to see new member David Adams jumping into the Club Pico and getting stuck straight into r...

Round the Island Race (Sheppey) 2015

It seemed logical to sail to Sheerness rather than break the boats down and put them on the trailer, it would make the whole day more of an adventure. An adventure and a test of stamina. Most of us have raced around the Isle of Sheppey before, it is a bit of a slog as it is, add twelve miles to get ...

Cedric Wren 3 & 4

Much discussion about who was sailing with who, before James and Keetah decided to free-sail the Argo. David A took a cautious decision to reef the Pico. Robin boldly decided to sail sport mode in the force six south westerly. Four boats competed in the fast fleet with both John H and Robin capsizin...

2015 Sprint 15 TT

25mph winds and a steep NE chop were the conditions awaiting the 22 competitors for the first two races of the 2015 SSC Sprint 15 TT on Saturday. The chilly wind powered the 15's through the long swell around the compact course, each leg bringing a different challenge to the fleet. Little r...
