Deadline for the next issue of Ebb & Flow – Monday, 8 June 2015

Get into print!

Summers coming please tell me that it is lets hope that the air and water warms up for a great sailing season on, rather than in, the balmy waters of Langstone Harbour and the Solent and maybe further afield or should that be afloat or adrift? Anyway, enough of that, another edition of Ebb & Flow is coming over the horizon, or it will be once it has cast off with a full cargo of articles, news, events, and contributions from eager Tudor members. So, before you are spending all your spare time out on the briny why not write an article for the club newsletter?

We need your input to make the next Ebb and Flow interesting so please let us know all about your summer plans. 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 youve been cruising or racing, why not let us have some information on your tips and or trips, race training ideas, where youve been, what youve seen, what youve eaten when you got there (whether France or Hayling Island). What about writing an article on a particular 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 its not that difficult. Its a bit like sailing in fact once youve pushed off, youll soon by underway!

If you have an idea, please get in touch. Send your contributions to ebbnflow

Tudor Regatta – 4th July

The Tudor Regatta will be a one day event taking place on Saturday 4th July. This is a change to the calendar, as it had previously been advertised as a 2 day event on 4th / 5th July. There will be 2 dinghy races and 1 cruiser race on the 4th, with the first dinghy race fast class start at 1pm and the cruiser race at 1:30pm. There will be refreshments afterwards alongside prize giving. An event poster is attached.

Saturday 25th July – cancellation of Out of Harbour Race and Forts and Fairways I

Both our Out of Harbour Race and Forts and Fairways I on 25th July are cancelled because of the restrictions placed on their respective sailing areas by the Portsmouth America’s Cup race taking place on the same day.
