Whitstable Race Results 2021

A day forecast for a gentle breeze gave us more than three hours of 10-15 knots higher than expected, wind against tide.  By the time of the first race at 2 pm the morning’s gentle breeze had freshened to a north-easterly F4 gusting F5. It stayed that way for much of the afternoon.  Races were a blast around the buoys, pretty well on the brink of sailing, though helped by surfing the rollers downwind and by the flow of the outgoing tide for the beats. The morning’s calm did not return until the boats came ashore. You need to login to view the rest of the content. Please Login. Not a Member? Join Us

Making a Nav Cab

Andy Powell shows us how: One thing that appealed to me about the Wanderer, was its adaptability. My previous boat, a Laser 2000, was excellent in many ways, but offered little scope for modification.  In short, I wanted a boat I could drill holes in.  My 1993 Anglo Marine Wanderer W1138 (named Medusa by her first owner) has proven an ideal test bed for several projects, and one of the first has been to make a cabinet to store equipment for cruising.   As a former cadet-officer and an instructor, I have acquired quite a bit of kit that I like to take out on cruises.  I want things to hand in the boat, but not under my feet.  I also wanted to be able to store all these things tidily on a shelf in my garage when not in use, and to be readily transportable to and from the

Sailing at 660ft above Sea Level

By Peter Melling No! I haven’t been at the malt’s just yet, but this is the height above sea level where I sail Dion W1716 a Hartley Wanderer.  If you have driven the M6 through the Lake District, particularly on the southbound carriageway, you will have passed the Killington Services just after J37.  Next time I recommend you call in for a coffee walk through to the rear of the building and take a look at Killington reservoir in all it’s splendour.  You need to login to view the rest of the content.

New Members Database

After a successful trial we have migrated the members database to the website. You might have seen an update on social media last night because at 20:29 the web server had a technical issue which reset some of the website. This was completely unrelated and just purely bad timing. I’d just like to reassure our members that no information was lost nor was any data breached and the site is back up and running. Please take a moment to login to the site and check your details are correct. Some of the bespoke information we keep was not transferred across, specifically boat number, method of payment and your co-owner (if you have one) so I’d like to ask you to double check your information is correct.
