We organise a series of club events throughout the year. These are not formal training occasions, but we try to make them as constructive as the crew wish. The skippers may not be RYA qualiﬁed, but they are all very experienced cruising skippers, with a long club history, and they enjoy sharing their enthusiasm with others.
Our yacht Eagle, a 38’ Bavaria, is ideally based for the Solent being moored on a new easy access pontoon at Universal Marina on the Hamble River. For those who want to venture further aﬁeld, the West Country and the north French Coast and Channel Islands are only a day sail away.
2019 CLUB ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME
This year, as in previous years, we have arranged a wide variety of Club Events to enable Members to improve their skills, learn new techniques of boat handling and seamanship or just go sailing.
FRIDAY 12 – SUNDAY 14 APRIL
It’s the bit you dread most – after a successful day’s sailing you’re faced with having to ﬁnd a berth
in an unfamiliar marina. Eagle has moved to a new berth at Universal Marina, but not all berths have such easy access.
This weekend will give you plenty of opportunity to practise getting in and out of berths and picking up moorings and other exercises in conﬁned spaces so that next time, you get it right ﬁrst time.
FRIDAY 14 – SUNDAY 16 JUNE
Sailing to Win
Following last year’s successful Event, Dave Berrigan will go through the techniques of sail setting, the use of sail trimming controls and other techniques to make sure that you sail as eﬃciently as possible. There’s no racing, but if weather permits, there may be a trip round the Island or simply ‘round the cans’ in the local area – with a stopwatch!
WEDNESDAY 28 AUGUST – FRIDAY 06 SEPTEMBER
Late Summer Cruise
On this nine-day cruise you will almost certainly head south, and you’ll be able to explore some of the most picturesque ports on the French coast. It won’t all be sailing and there will be couple of days ashore so that you can relax and enjoy the delights of French cuisine and unspoilt towns. This is an opportunity to get out of the Solent – ideal for anyone wanting to upgrade their ticket or visit further away places such as St Malo and the Channel Islands.
