skipper’s view

TURN TO PAGE 17 OF THIS issue and you will see that the great and the good of the sailing world descended on the Royal Thames Yacht Club in early December to pick up their gongs at the British Yachting Awards. Now, I must confess that I’m not totally within my comfort zone when I’m at events such as this. I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t own a suit for a starter so am immediately on the back foot.

Most vividly, I recall doing some flesh pressing with Princess Anne when conversation strayed to the realm of adventure sailing and I muttered something about Cape Horn. Regrettably, she misheard this as ‘gay porn’ - a laughable misunderstanding but you can perhaps…

plymouth rocked by news the fastnet race will finish in cherbourg

After welcoming finishers from the Fastnet Race for 125 years, the city of Plymouth is reeling from news that its ties to the historic race are being severed. The Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) event’s organisers have announced that the city of Cherbourg will host the Fastnet finish in 2021 and 2023. RORC says the move “encourages and secures the future development of the race and will open it to more competitors”. In 2019, the race had a waiting list of 150 boats, and it is claimed the enhanced facilities offered by Cherbourg will give the opportunity for more boats and sailors to take part in future years. Speaking about the benefits of Cherbourg as the finish venue, RORC commodore Steven Anderson said: “Cherbourg offers significant additional berthing and improved facilities for competitors,…

margaret dye reunited with wanderer - virtually

Renowned sailor Margaret Dye, who together with late-husband Frank sailed their dinghy Wanderer thousands of miles and into the imaginations of sailors everywhere via their books, recently enjoyed a virtual reunion with her beloved boat. Margaret, now 89, lives in Heathcote Care Home and has limited mobility.

So instead, Black Swan Care Group staff organised a surprise – arranging a video call with NMM collection officer Andy, who toured Margaret around the exhibits, especially Wanderer. “It’s made my day, my week, my month,” said Margaret. “It’s just the best feeling to see her again, she’s such a special precious little boat and…
