    29 July 2020: XOD Evening Racing

    Goodness me! I'd forgotten what fun sailing is- perfect Wednesday evening racing in about 15 knots of wind dropping slowly with twelve, thirteen, fourteen boats out - I lost count. It was absolutely wonderful to be finally out on the sea gliding through the waves in Merlin, especially with no water pouring in! With a couple of hours tuition from Roger, Felicity and I got on the start line and kept up with the

  • Damascus Road Experience

    Last Sunday out on the racetrack, Rear Commodore Sailing, Michael J Wigmore, underwent a Damascus Road experience. Turning to singlehanded sailing on the first day of the Itchenor SC Test series he showed fine form in an RS Aero 7.

    16 April 2020: The Story of the GRP Solent Sunbeams

    Itchenor Sailing Club Member and Solent Sunbeam owner, Roger Wickens, has just published the fascinating story behind the GRP Solent Sunbeams.

Activity on the jetty started at 0945 with Masquerade and Elin moored alongside and the 12 rowers preparing for the outing in ideal conditions. The Rowing Support boat crew were happily reassigned to Masquerade and Elin
