    Autumn Sailing Update

    There has been lots of sailing in and around PSC over the past few weeks. The Spithead Series completed last Saturday and, unusually, there was a decent breeze that allowed two races to be completed (see picture courtesy of David Romano). Despite predominantly light breezes it has been a successful season with 14 yachts competing. We were particularly pleased to be able to welcome several newcomers to the series - we look

  • Squib Fleet Win Club Team Trophy at National Inland Championships

    Despite COVID, a very windy forecast and fuel issues, a team of PSC members competed in the Squib class National Inland Championships last weekend at Rutland Water. Boatyard manager, Joe Henry achieved a third overall but congratulations to all the PSC sailors whose combined efforts resulted in PSC winning the team trophy. This is a fantastic achievement for a club that only recently established a Squib fleet and certainly places us firmly on

    Autumn Spithead Update

    The first two Saturdays of the Autumn Spithead Series delivered extreme contrasts in weather conditions. Light winds tested everybody's patience on day one but a gentle breeze finally enabled two races to be provided. Results are here - The delayed start did allow Mary Siobhan's skipper the opportunity to catch some mackerel for the race officer's tea - see picture! Unfortunately racing was abandoned on

    Spring Spithead Series - Final Races Abandoned

    The final races of the Spithead Series, planned for Sat 8 May, were abandoned due to excessive winds and sea state. (See Bramblemet wind readings showing winds consistently over 25 kts and gusts over 35 kts). The committee vessel, Mary Siobhan, headed out into the race area but it was clear that the conditions were untenable for either anchoring the committee vessel or safe yacht racing. A disappointing end to the series.

  • Spring Spithead Series Update

    The second Saturday of our Spithead Series was a challenging one for competitors and the race management team! Many thanks to Mark Briggs and James Jopling for taking up the Race Officer duties and for achieving two races, despite the gentle breeze that died after race 1 and then, eventually, returned beyond expectations to allow a very quick second race around a short, light wind course! Provisional results are here -

    Spring Spithead Series Week 1

    We hope everybody enjoyed their first race of the year today despite the chilly temperatures and lack of the usual yellow racing marks. There was some great close racing, especially in the second race with three yachts finishing within twenty seconds of each other. Big thanks to Tim Johnson for acting as Race Officer and the rest of the race team onboard Mary Siobhan and of course to Phil and Chris who were laying
