A date for your diaries – 17th December

The last official sailing day before Christmas could be one of the most interesting. I’ve had confirmation from the UK importer of the Soling that he will be visiting us on the 17th. With him he’ll be bringing his complete Soling, a Soling in kit form and a member from Hampton Court who will be bringing their Soling as well. Members will be able to sail these boats together, and see the kit and how much work goes into building these boats.

It really will be an excellent opportunity to see these boats in action, and give your opinions as to whether the club should adopt these shallow draft (10 inch) boats alongside our existing IOM and 6M fleet. We welcome any prospective members or those with an interest in seeing the Soling on the water to come and join us from 11am onwards.

The 17th will also (hopefully) see the launch of my 6M. It’s been a long time in the making – Don’t Ask! – But the final layers of paint are going on the hull and I’m making the sails this afternoon. So by the end of the day, not only will I be covered in bright blue paint, my flat will be littered with offcuts of dacron and mylar…wish me luck!

Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish the best of the season to members past, present and future. Happy Christmas and fair winds to you all.
