Tuesday After School Sailing Autumn 2020

22nd Sept 2020

Five scows sailed by Shipmates and their parents set off in a brisk breeze to explore the marshes. A high tide allowed them to scoot up crooked lake to Oxey buoy - as they rounded the mark the challenge was to grab the tube of smarties from the support boat on the first go! This was followed by a breezy sail back downwind into the river, where the lifeboat flew by at high speed, before returning to the calmer waters off the Club. 



29th Sept 2020

5 Shipmates set off in their family bubbles for a short sail in the scows from the club to the quay. The took in the sights of moored boats, ferries and cormorants before tying up on the harbour master pontoon. Large quantities of ice cream were ordered and eaten on the quayside before returning gently to the club.


Shipmates Scow Potter - Tanners Lane Sept 2020

Twenty of our Shipmates (members aged Under 8) enjoyed a great sail through Pylewell to Tanners beach on Sunday. 12 scows set off in very light conditions however the wind quickly built giving a fantastic sail through the marshes. On arrival at Tanners the boats were moored behind the motherships offshore whilst we tucked into our picnics on the beach with plenty of mud jumping and donkey spotting too . The route home required plenty of tacking for which the reward was large ice-creams. Thank you to all who made scows available to us.
