2017 ICOYC Cruise In Finland
2017 ICOYC Cruise In Finland

The next morning, 25 August, after sorting out a few things on "Nova", a Dufour 385, we set sail for Verkan on the island of Korpo.   The navigation was relatively easy as we sailed, or rather motor-sailed, as the wind was very light, down the main channel towards Korpo.
We saw quite a few classic yachts tacking up through the islands.  There was just a slight challenge going through the many small islands to the harbour of Verkan but the leading marks were extremely helpful and there were posts marking a very narrow passage.
Eventually we found a place to moor, hooking a buoy to tie to the stern and then bow to a jetty.

Report & Images: Louay Habib

The Royal Southern Yacht Club Summer Series came to a conclusion with the September Regatta, incorporating the Contessa 26 National Championships. 
After a blustery first day, the last day of the regatta was held in breeze consistently over 20 knots, and by the close of racing, the westerly wind was close to 30 knots.
The sixth edition of the Contessa 26 National Championships was won by Chris Charlesworth's Meow, with Sarah Applebey's High Potential second, and Mike & Barbara Harrison's Jiminy Cricket third. 
Mike Bartholomew's FAST40+ Tokoloshe II was the winner in the 12-strong IRC One Class, scoring three wins during the series. Roger Bowden's King 40 Nifty was second, with Jock Wishart's First 40 Adventurer out of Sailplane taking third.
David & Kirsty Apthorp's J-Dream was unstoppable in the J/88 One design Class, scoring straight bullets.

Visit to the South Downs Planetarium, Chichester

Visit to the South Downs Planetarium, Chichester
Wednesday October 4th 2017 at 10.00 hrs.

Organiser: Ann Arscott email : annarscott2@talktalk.net  07778815352

Our visit will start with Coffee and Biscuits, and will be followed at 10.30 a.m. by a talk by Dr. John Mason in the Star Theatre.
He will describe the stars and planets which can be seen on that day, and will take us on an imaginary journey, by boat, from Portsmouth to Australia, using the stars visible on October 4th 2017 for navigation.

The majority of us will not be familiar with navigating by star sights, but is might be a handy skill to acquire should your GPS fail!

Please see the planetarium's website for more information.

After the talk: Chichester is a lovely old city with lots of retail therapy opportunities and restaurants for lunch

I look forward to seeing you.
