Then we saw the weather forecast on Sunday with winds for Monday/Tuesday anything between a F5 and F7,

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.

East Cowes Rally 5th September 2020 It was with a very cautious approach that this rally went ahead due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Well there we were two weeks to go, 42 members and guests signed up to join our 'sister club', Medina Yacht Club for their end of summer party at the Island Sailing Club.

The Royal Southampton Bosun did a great job of accommodating all the Haslar yachts, bar one, on
