quick note to advise that the Shoreham Open next weekend clashes with the Brighton Pride Parade which starts at 11am and runs through until about 6pm, so be aware that the A23/A27 junction may well be busy on your journey down, especially if we're treated to a bit of sunshine!
are you and alex not sailing on the saturday then?
Oh, here they come.... ;-))
What is Shoreham like to sail at? Never been before and pondering a visit.
If there is some wind, you won't be disappointed.
Shoreham is one of the few places where you can get decent sarf coast sailing without the shingly hell of beach launching and recovery. Launching is down a relatively gently wooden ramp into the harbour and then a short sail out to the sea itself. Provided that the breeze is from the southern half of the compass, it will be reasonably constant and you'll get waves that are sufficiently well-spaced for lots of luverly surfing downwind.
How do you know I cut the grass yesterday... there must be spies in the mist
Sounds like it should be a good crack. Heard rumours of enourmas waves in previous years, and the photo's seem to back that up, is that normal or was that just an exceptionally windy day?
Last year was a F3-5 on the Sat, with a F5-6 on the Sunday. The waves were pretty big.
This weekend was SW f4-5 and included some pretty big waves! I just hope it hasn't peaked too soon and we get some fun conditions next w/e!
Rossy is there any room to squeeze my tent in?...Still can't sail but I'll help you drink the two barrells!
We are coming anlong with a tent too and i know of a few others so should be a fun night!! Is two barrels going to be enough?!!
Plenty of room round back of club. We're not strictly aloud to have campers on site, however the neighbours don't seem to mind as long as visitors respectfully keep the noise down outside after dark. As long as they stay on our side it provides visitors with free accomadation, so no one go spoiling it (no borrowing their garden furniture either, you know who you are ;-)
Latest forecast looking good!!!
Do I spot from the write up that Alan Bax was sailing Tom's boat with Liam?
Shoreham results are now on the club site (Sorry, can't make it happen as a hyperlink!).
Yes you can!
