From The Archive: Boysterous Round Britain and Ireland, June-July 2009
About a year ago, I decided that I would start to wind up my long distance sailing and return to Regatta sailing in the UK supplemented by charters in warm places.
There's a limit to how many times you want to sail across the Atlantic and I found the constraints of getting moorings in the western Mediterranean spoilt the freedom of being able to sail around rather than being trapped in the same hot, humid marina.

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.
