    What a great Junior RustBuster!

    We had our Rust Buster on 16 March and we had a fantastic turnout. With approximately 16 families rolling up their sleeves to get the boats ready for this year's sailing. We met 4 of the new junior families who have joined this year, great for them to get a feel for the Club and all helped out. We cleaned all the club oppies, teras and even uncovered the 2 toppers in

    Exciting New Saltmarsh Restoration Project

    Whilst boating in Chichester Harbour you may have noticed diggers and heavy equipement operating on the shore at West Itchenor. This is part of an exciting project by the the Chichester Harbour Conservancy to restore saltmarsh in our harbour which has been contracting due to sea rise and the inability for the plant to retreat inland because of man-made defences. Saltmarsh is important within our coastal ecosystem as it stores carbon, helping to counter climate

    June 4th saw over 30 boats contest the ROWANS' Hospice Handicap Races on a day meant for "champagne" sailing. Sailed, in what this year is becoming a prevailing nor' easter, racing was well contested across all fleets. It was certainly great to see the committed racers sailing with those whose main motivation was to support this worthy cause and just to have some fun. Thanks to all who helped make this event

    The last tide of May saw a fleet of three Lasers a Gull and a Finn butt, in true "Masefieldian" fashion, into an east nor'easterly gusting some 23 knots. Outstanding sailing skills were shown on what was not an evening for the faint hearted, with egress from the creek itself proving a challenge. A robust and gritty performance by all saw four boats finish, some in great style! The low sun, making marks

    Successful first cruiser rally!

    The first rally of the season last weekend was a resounding success with young and older members attending. The winds and weather were kindly and some good sailing and motorboating were had. Warsash Sailing Club is beautifully situated on the Hamble River and the older participants were heard humming Howard's Way as they navigated their way along the pontoon or to the bar and back. Warsash provided a hospitable welcome and good food so thanks
