After a week of very cold weather the forecast for the May Bank holiday weekend did not look too good. But as luck would have it we managed to skip most of the rain on Saturday and Sunday and it did warm up a bit.
The breeze was gentle from the Northwest and the sun was shining but clouds bubbled up when the wind went round to the Southwest.

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.
