After a winter lay off Sam's summer season is underway. Over the winter we replaced the standing rigging, strengthened the chainplates and renewed some halyards. We have recently installed new boat speed and wind instruments.

Sam's regular Skipper, Peter Hopps, returned from winter work in the Caribbean in mid May, in time for the Deauville Race over the end of May Bank Holiday weekend. In a light wind race we were 1 of only 2 boats to complete the course under sail (there was a 'Cruiser' Division who were allowed to motor).

Following that we did a Day Skipper Course for LCSC.

Round the Island Race on Saturday 7 July - see

      www.roundtheisland.org.uk     for results and info.

RORC Cowes-Dinard-St.Malo Race on Friday 13 July. The following weekend is the Taittinger Regatta in Yarmouth then Cowes Week which is 4-10 August. See


From 12 - 19 August 'Cruise with Instruction'; a holiday cruise round the South Coast, possibly over to France and/or the Channel Islands.

Our final Regatta of the season will be Dartmouth Sailing Week starting on 29 Aug with a Passage Race from Brixham to Dartmouth and concluding on 2 September.
