  • Kissing the Queens Promenade - A Rater Report - 18 April

    19 Apr 2017

    Four A Raters took to the River Thames at Thames Sailing Club, Surbiton for the 3rd Tuesday evening of the season. The boats and teams didn't quite know what they had let themselves into that evening, a evening that turned into carnage with the sound of breaking wires, cracking wood and fibreglass with two Raters colliding along the Queens promenade. The conditions where glamour a moderate breeze from the north east, sunshine but a

  • Merlin Report - 18 April

    19 Apr 2017

    Sun shining and wind blowing F1-2 from the northeast, it was set to be a great Tuesday evening race. Four Merlin Rockets were in attendance – Ben and Sel, Chris and Pip, Rob and Jenny and Alex and Rach our guests from Hampton. The race got off to a flier with the majority sailing the 'conventional route' to the south and Chris and Pip taking a risk in beating to the North of Ravens

    Dear Members, There is a huge amount going on at the sailing club, and even more to come so we look forward to seeing you this weekend at the Work Party, Tuesday evenings and Sundays in the near future.

  • ​Commodore's Musings - January 2017

    29 Jan 2017

    I hope that you have had a restful and battery charging holiday season, which may seem like ages away, and are now looking forward to a successful 2017. January is a little of a manic month for me as there are a large number of birthdays in our family and the Christmas binge does not really seem to be over until we are half way through January. Firstly I would like to

  • Commodore's Musings - November 2016

    7 Nov 2016

    Dear All, Time, it seems to go in a blur these days and so now that all of the Raters are safely tucked up in their beds it seems fitting to reflect on the last couple of months and the season as a whole. The Yates Cup and Braganza bowl was moved to a weekend in early October, which reduced the clashes with other events and produced a fine turn-out of 10 Raters.
