We’ve been at our new home for almost exactly a year now and while 2020 has been difficult we have managed to sail regularly. Our IOM racing has continued to develop and even in winter we see fleets of 6-10 boats racing in all weathers. What has been particularly interesting is the growth in the number of DF95s sailing. The year started with 3 boats and we now have a fleet of 10, most of whom sail weekly on a Monday and we anticipate a few more in the new year. Watch this space for notices of series and possibly even an ‘open’ or two. We have ample opportunities for both experts and novices alike and offer competitive racing in good sized fleets. Our members regularly provide one-on-one tuition where required and offer weekly training sessions where you’ll find friendly help to get your boat going well. If you’re new to the sport, with advance notice, we’ll do our best to have a variety of boats available for you to sail to help you decide which class of boat suits your needs best.
We also have a club group build of 5 or 6 Lionheart J class boats (60 inches long) and there will be more details soon on our J Class Pages. The beauty of these boats is undeniable and they will make a graceful site in the relatively near future.
