    HYC Christmas Party December 2021

    The Haslar Christmas party was held at the premises of Hornet Sailing Club on the evening of Saturday 4th December 2021.  Due to Covid concerns, numbers were slightly down this year but 25 members and their guests attended. After our welcome drink on arrival, our newly elected commodore welcomed us all to our first Christmas party since December 2019 and what a long wait it seems to have been!

    East Cowes Rally 9/10th October 2021

    The End of Season Rally followed on from a very successful talk by Mike OMeara on 'Raising the Gold on HMS Edinburgh' on the Friday evening. On the Saturday morning, the fleet set sail for East Cowes. Although one boat had travelled across earlier in the week, most arrived by early afternoon.  There was very little wind, so only one boat 'sailed' across.  Well done to Jonathan and the crew of 'Blue Moon'.

    Round the Island Cruise - 1 September 2021

    The idea for this event came from our good friend and frequent crew member Julie who many of you know from various rallies over the years. Julie said she has always wanted to sail around the Island in a day, something I had done a couple of times in the Round The Island Race whilst crewing for Jonathan Clare on Blue Moon. I thought it would be good to tackle this on our boat Nemo,

    Lymington July 2021 - Report 2

    There and back again, a novice Sailor's tale. A journey through Middle Earth Solent. (Sailing Rally Weekend ~ Haslar Marina to Royal Lymington Yacht Club.) The weekend started for us on Friday Afternoon, and the weather on the way down to Gosport didn't bode well for the rest of

    Lymington July 2021 - Report 1

    The weekend of the planned rally to Lymington did not have the most favourable of forecasts and understandably, as the weekend got closer, numbers dropped. It has to be said that the rally leader also was not happy with the weather and took the tarmac option to attend the pontoon party and the dinner on the Saturday evening. However there were two brave crews, Misty Moon and Blue Hoolie. . 'Misty Moon' left Haslar

  • Chichester Rally - 10 July 2021

    Our rally to Chichester this year was limited by the numbers that could be catered for in the Chichester Yacht Club. Continuing covid restrictions and staff difficulties being faced by many in the hospitality industry meant we were asked to keep the rally to a maximum of 24 headcount. Initially we looked like being full although there was capacity for additional vessels. Unfortunately, Stewart & Helen got the dreaded ping into isolation just before the

  • Island Harbour 23-25 June 2021

    Breaking away from the traditional rally weekend format, the first mid week rally had been posted as a 'potter' and scheduled for 22 to 24 June. Mid-summer, perfect weather and 2 days relaxing at the top of the river Medina. Everything looked set, with attendees confirmed and tables booked for the Tuesday evening in the Breeze. Then we saw the weather forecast on Sunday with winds for Monday/Tuesday anything between a F5 and F7,

  • West Cowes Rally 29th thru 31st May 2021

    Given all the times I have been to Cowes, this was my first venture into West Cowes and the Yacht haven. Single handed and trying to avoid the myriad of boats who, like me, were not sure where to go, I sailed blindly past the HYC battle flag, clearly visible on Brian's boat, into the South Basin and towards the other set of white capped piles. Wrong ones. I looked around to see the HYC
