Cruising in Company

Dear NRSC Members

We had a great morning's sail yesterday, with a reefed main and reduced jib to tackle strong winds and gusts. The rain held off and we were glad of a break at the Anchorage.

Sailing in Company will continue throughout August and we are proposing to firm up on the format so that it's easier for everyone to plan ahead and get involved.

From now on Sailing in Company will take place every Wednesday morning, with boats meeting at a new venue, Thurne Mouth, at a new earlier time, 10:00.  Sailing in Company started with the gang in South Walsham, but we hope that meeting in Thurne Mouth will be more convenient for those in Oby Dyke, Upton Dyke and elsewhere on the Northern Rivers. It also gives us the choice of a run up the Bure towards Ranworth, down the Bure to the Anchorage or up the Thurne to Potter. There are no moorings available to us at Thurne but we plan to check out good spots to pull into the reeds for a natter.

The earlier start means that a good sail can be had in a half-day for those needing to get back home for lunch or events in the afternoon.

Sailing in Company is for NRSC members at all skill levels. We aim to have fun sailing along and turning to the back when you reach the front of the fleet. If you let me know I can usually arrange for some help onboard with boat-handling, or some advice on rigging and tactics. We often meet up at the Anchorage where you can make new friends, catch up on all the news and make plans for the rest of the season. Why not bring the family and have a picnic in the afternoon? All the equipment you will need is there for you to use. 

So, the next event is Wednesday 7th August, aiming for 10:00 at Thurne Mouth. Bring your radio if you have one and listen out on Channel 72. And don't be put off by the weather, a good sailor won't mind a spot of rain and if the winds are light it's good sailing practice, especially if the tide is strong, as it so often is.

dnesday!See you all at Thurne next Wednesday!

All the very best
