Sailing Footage from Recent Years

Sailing Footage from Recent Years, taken by Stella Lyra, 2017

We recieved an exciting package with 2 memory sticks with Stella sailing footage!  Thank you mystery sender!

Whilst none of us are able to get out sailing we are taking the opportunity to put a few videos on the website to keep our spirits up. One at a time!

Best wishes, Mark and Helen, Lodestar * 64

Here is a photo of Celeste. No 101. She lives in the Solent and mainly cruises between Chichester and Poole, and clearly spends a good amount of time being scraped, painted and varnished!

January 2020 Update

Happy New Year Everybody!

Lodestar(64) had a lovely restful Christmas and New Year  sitting unused on her muddy mid river mooring in the River Medway so that when she was re introduced to the joys of sailing on January 11th she wasn’t leaking a drop.  It was also a test of using a large dry crystals de-humidifier.   She was really dry inside, no condensation. So either thats just how the weather has been or the dehumidifier is working a treat.  The experiment continues.

We had a glorious sail to Burnham on saturday afternoon/ evening, in a good 2 reefs south westerly breeze, arriving in time to get served a meal in The White Hart. An 0545 departure on Sunday gave us a fantastic return trip into a 1 reef south wester, back at Hoo Ness YC in time for a 5pm  pint.

If anyone else would like to share any winter trips or fit out stories I would be very happy to put them on the website.

The November AGM included a lively discussion about the calender.
