Club Boats

The Club currently operates three dinghies (three Comet Trios) which are sailed and maintained by the Dinghy Section.

Two boats are berthed at Frensham Pond Sailing Club and one boat is at Southampton Sailing Club. Two Trios have full membership and one has a weekday only membership. The boats are stored on their trollies at Frensham Pond and additional materials are kept at the Boat Shed on the Farnborough site.

During the winter months all members of the Dinghy Section are asked to help with the maintenence of our boats as this keeps our fleet in good condition and keeps subscription charges low. This task has reduced considerably in recent year now that the Club runs a totally GRP fleet.

All members of the Dinghy Section can use the boats providing they are not being used for Club activities.

Lake Road to Sandbanks

Two boats took to the waters of Poole Harbour from the Lake Road slipway on Saturday 4th January.

The forecast was for F3-4, overcast, 8C and with a chance of rain. We slipped at 10am, and sailed to Cleaval Point (not enough water to be able to get to land), then a long and lovely run onto Sandbanks for lunch at the Caff Cafe. We were all a bit chilly, and a sit down in a warm cafe was just what we needed. Food was hot and good, service excellent. With about 3 hours of daylight we chose to sail not the direct circumnavigation of Brownsea Island, but back through the more interesting Blood Alley, where the chances of a wind shadow were less. The wind was variable in both direction and strength as drizzle clouds passed over Hamworthy and Poole, changing the wind direction. Since the second ebb had gently started, it was an intellectual battle of minimising oncoming tidal currents and squeezing everything out of the gusts to get to the Western end of the island. The others took their sail down and rowed into the wind, then hoisted for the long single beat back to Lake Road.

On our way to Cleavel Point

We returned four minutes before the passage plan had suggested. Surprisingly, we sailed 10 miles during our tour of Poole Harbour.

Having packed up we repaired to “The Yachtsman” Public House for soft drinks and chat before heading home.
