Well done to Amber Poulloin and Celia Rushton who finished a respectable 16th and 11th at the recent Byte Nationals. Both our sailors improved on their positions from last year. 👍

It was a tough long weekend of one windy day and 3 light wind days. The fleet was very close from 9th to 22nd in most of the races.

Tragic Incident 16th April
Tuesday 17 April 1043

It is with much regret that I confirm there was a tragic incident at Weymouth Sailing Club yesterday involving a single person and a boat in storage. Emergency services attended very quickly and took control of the situation, but unfortunately, a member died at the scene.

I am unable to make any further comment as the incident is subject to a joint investigation between Dorset Police and the Health and Safety Executive. The findings of the investigation will be handed to HM Coroner in due course. The whole sailing club is obviously devastated at this tragic incident and our thoughts go out to the families concerned. I understand NOK have been informed but am unable to give any further details until authorised by the Coroner.

I can state that the boat concerned had been ashore for almost a week and no boat moves were scheduled.

Making use of the long winter evenings, twelve members of WSC have successfully completed their RYA Day Skipper shore-based course. This is a sailing theory course to equip aspiring yacht skippers with the knowledge to sail inshore passages safely.

Ex-commodore Kathy Claydon taught the course, and with over 100,000 nautical miles under her belt she was able to share her huge experience with the class. There were 40 hours of tuition plus two final exam papers, covering a wide range of subjects from the basics of seamanship to navigation and electronic chart plotters.

Kathy said, “The Day Skipper course provides an excellent theory foundation for those who want to skipper a boat in familiar waters, which is the kind of sailing many of our members enjoy. I’m proud of the class for the hard work they put in to achieve their qualifications.”

The follow-on from the Day Skipper shore-based course is the practical course that requires five days at sea under supervision, plus a four-hour night sail.

Weymouth Sailing Club also offers members the more advanced RYA Yachtmaster theory course, as well as RYA dinghy sailing qualifications.

Hurtling downwind at 13 knots in a force 7 towards the beach at Ouistreham in Georges’s expensive Winner 9 metre made me wonder what was going to happen when we got there.
