The newly elected Commodore of the Royal Southern Yacht Club, David Mead, has vowed to 'make use of the legacy that the highly successful 175 celebrations this year leaves astern of us.'
David Mead was elected Commodore at the Hamble-based Club's recently held AGM, replacing Mark Inkster who had completed his two year tenure as Commodore during what has arguably been the Club's busiest two years in its 175 year history.

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.

Bembridge Rally
Bembridge Rally
Tuesday morning began well. The sun shone and a moderate breeze blew from the west. What a great start for our rally to Bembridge! Our member's boats began arriving at Bembridge from about 1030, just as soon as there was enough water over the bar. A short shower and squally wind arrived late morning but didn't last long. By m...

Over a Biscuit Barrel
The shooting section had their last foray of the season earlier in September at Compton estate outside of Stockbridge. The weather was most benign being a beautiful early autumn day with the colours just turning and the hedgerow fruits ripening.
Our jovial crew met with much to discuss after a season of sailing and holidaying.

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.
