Gould Series 2014

This year, due to the Gould starting before the end of the Sunday series, it has been agreed by the sailing committee that the cut off date for qualifying races for Gould entry will be 24th August. The personal handicap calculations are in progress and will be posted as soon as they are complete. Don’t forget that the series is run as both the Gould and the Challenge series so everyone will qualify for entry into at least one series so come on down and race.

Deadline for the next issue of Ebb & Flow – Friday, 26 September 2014.

Get into print!

If you are thinking that the weather may mean that your sailing activities are almost over for the summer, why not start telling the rest of us all about them. As usual, we need your input to make the next Ebb and Flow interesting so please let us know all about your summer sailing adventures and activities. If you are writing an article (and please do), a few photos if you have them help to make it even more interesting (and make it easier to adjust it to fit in the space available).

We can all learn from the nautical experiences of others so let’s hear about your sailing successes and failures – don’t be embarrassed, pseudonyms can be used if you prefer! If you’ve been cruising or racing, why not let us have some information on your tips and or trips, race training ideas, where you’ve been, what you’ve seen, what you’ve eaten when you got there (whether France or Hayling Island). What about writing an article on your favourite type of dinghy or cruiser, practical boating advice or cooking in confined quarters – all contributions gratefully received.

Other ideas for articles: what made you want to get afloat in the first place, what was your first sailing experience; what was your worst (and/or best) sailing experience; what boat would you like to own and why; sailing trivia; most useful piece of kit; book reviews; your favourite nautical film or poem?

Sailing stories, cartoons or photos are all welcome? Don’t be shy, start to write – it’s not that difficult. It’s a bit like sailing in fact – once you’ve pushed off, you’ll soon by underway!

If you have an idea, please get in touch and send your contributions to ebbnflow
