Congratulations to David Alsop on his stunning photos taken at this year's regatta. The first photo is the winning photo for 'on the water' and shows what fabulous winds and dramatic racing we had! The second is the 'on the beach' winner, showing the Captain's Topper race. (I knew some of those sailors needed to go back to basics :) Both photos show interesting composition and capture the essence of the fun on the beach and on the water. The Committee would like to thank those that entered this competition and we hope there will be even more entries next year. We know you budding photographers are out there. There will be more news about the Regatta to follow in the events section of this website soon.
It was a sweltering hot day in Muscat, Oman, for the final showdown at the Extreme Sailing Series™, where the Arabian peninsula saved the best for last, with winds that blasted across the course at a steady 20 knots, with gusts of 26, before a final race shoot out...more
Last weekend's monthly mug received a solid turnout of laser sailors and put 8 boats onto the water. A lack of wind turned this into an exercise in low wind sailing. It was perhaps not the most exciting day on the water but it was fun to be out there and try out some techniques. Many thanks to Stephen and Dave for manning the rib and providing OOD support on the day.
