Gentlemen's Lunch report
Gentlemen's Lunch report

The sell-out inaugural Gentlemen's Lunch organised by the Ladies Committee can fairly be described as a great success.
The highlight of the event, however, was the post-lunch speech by Noj White, who entertained the assembled with numerous tales of his career with BOAC and later British Airways as a Concorde and Boeing 747 pilot, not all of which would be repeatable in mixed company.

October Folly Rally Weekend.
October Folly Rally Weekend.

Typically, the annual late Cruiser supper marks the official close of the season when we Cruisers reminisce about the good times we have had through the year in the 25 or so events that the Cr/Committee have put on. Friday 14th October was no different.
A healthy compliment of members sat down to a great supper of tasty Gammon in sauce (Chairman's favourite - thanks Maggie) followed by Summer Fruit Tart - another popular choice. Most of us decided to team this appropriately with what was not quite the last of the summer wine, whilst viewing the member's action photos on the large TV screen.

Lymington - Horse & Jockey Rallies
Lymington - Horse & Jockey Rallies

With equal numbers of sail and power boats this could be described as a hybrid rally, with five of each! A great two days, with a pleasant beat to Lymington for those with sails, and a calm ride for the motor-boaters.
We moored on the Dan Bran pontoon, just downstream from the Royal Lymington Y.C., an excellent viewpoint for watching activity on the river - ferries, dinghy sailing, all the usual sailing and motor boat traffic, and a few paddle boarders too. Perhaps we should be thinking of paddle board rallies?

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.
