With fine weather last weekend, many members took advantage of the easing of travel restrictions and enjoyed some great sailing and time on the water. Fantastic to see the bay full of activity.

"Jackknife" won the overall and class 1, with second overall and winner of class 2 "Pastime of Hamble".  A very enjoyable race for the shorthanded and solo
