I didn't realize you'd abandoned us, Alan! Have you learned the French for "Starboard" yet?

Living in Swindon but sailing in The Cotswold Water Park, like Rupert. Only a different club.

If we cut a channel we could probably visit - save getting the trailor out.

Cheers

it could be, it's a bit further than Grafham but has a different atmosphere.....

I mainly keep a boat at Grafham so I can sail with my sailability mates who are based at the water centre next door.

The water centre next door was where I spent a whole week in late 1974 on a sailing course as a 16 year old Cambridgeshire Constabulary Police Cadet. The only time I've ever been paid to sail!! No pressure as I'd already been sailing for 4 years down the road at Wyboston Sailing Club. Long gone.

Hi All,

I sail at Alton Water in Suffolk, nice club with good access and the staff are great :D

If anyone else is near and fancies a sail in a National 18 or Jollyboat, let me know, you are more than welcome (but please wait till the weather is a bit warmer :? )

Looking forward to the BCBR and the Nationals this year

Regards,

Chris
