We are delighted to tell you that we have a special guest visiting Cadets evening on Wednesday 9th September.

He will be naming our new club boats – “Ben” (after Ben Ainslie), “Bart” (after the late Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson), and “Freddie” (after himself) as well as meeting our young sailors.

Deadline for the next issue of Ebb & Flow – Monday, 21 September 2015

Get into print!

Summer’s almost over – so why not tell us at Ebb & Flow all about your sailing activities over the past few months – as well as anything you’ve got planned for the next few as well.

It’s only with contributions from Tudor members that we can keep the good ship Ebb & Flow afloat on the choppy waters of nautical journalism. This is your opportunity to raise the sails on that interesting article you’ve been meaning to write and see it sailing off to a wider readership.

We need your input to keep Ebb & Flow interesting so please let us know all about your summer. 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. 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 – 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 Richard Curtis and send your contributions to him at ebbnflow
