June Rib Rally to Sea House
June Rib Rally to Sea House

We had our first rib rally of the season on Saturday at Sea House. 
We were on the edge of a rain line on a weather forecast all week but luckily on the day it was dry if a little breezy. 
It was too windy to rib round so some drove and eight took the ferry from Hamble and cycled the scenic coastal path.

Our Commodore Karen Henderson-Williams was recently interviewed by Sasha Twining on BBC Radio Solent's H20 slot.
Karen was asked about her childhood and how she got into sailing with her parents, how she progressed from dinghies into keel boats and about her role in helping to develop youth sailing at the Club. She explained her current role as well as her stewardship of the Royal Southern as only the second lady Commodore in the Club's 179 year history. Karen also discussed her aims and objectives for the Club going forward. It's a great listen, and we hope you enjoy it.
