    SLOSHH

    This year's SLOSHH, hosted by Seafarers Sailing Club, saw a windy start. Twelve boats launched from Lee on Solent, with gusty winds helping them reach Seafarers in record times. It wasn't 'plain sailing' by any means, with several capsizes along the way, tricky gybing and hairy kite dropping. But it was worth it, with LOSSC members taking 1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd , and as a club Lee

    SAILING SEASON HAS STARTED

    This year's Sailing Season began with the Brass Monkey race, which unusually enjoyed warm sunny weather and fair winds. Since then, we have seen everything from winds so light boats have ended up sailing backwards, to races being cancelled due to Force 8 winds. But luckily, there has been plenty of good sailing weather as can be seen from this footage of Thursday's race (courtesy of Ben Shirley). 20220414 - LOSSC.mp4

    In light of the morning's conditions - F7 Westerly, and the forecast for the afternoon and evening which remains roughly the same, the likelihood of being able to sail safely this evening is miniscule. Given this, the Duty Officer has taken the decision to cancel this evenings racing to save unnecessary travel. Enjoy your evening, be it wet (bar) or dry!

    Chris Watts returned to LOSSC, on Thursday 24 February, to explain the key racing rules and how they affect us and our racing strategies.

    RIBS

    Over the last few months, the RIB team have been hard at work, with the emphasis on the Orange Searider which has had a full refurbishment (thanks to Kevin Clark).

It has also been furnished with a new Suzuki 40hp 4-stroke engine, the same as fitted to the
