By definition these events happen very rarely and we were privileged to be able to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on Sunday, 3rd June.

Just a reminder that the mid-week rally programme continues. The next get-together is on July 21/22 and the venue is Lymington. We'll try to get on the Town Quay and Ariel will be listening on Ch72. Please feel free to join us, nothing will be booked and we'll probably be eating in the pub on Wednesday evening.

The programme continues as follows:

Aug 18/19 - Itchenor

Sept 15/16 - Southsea

Just back from a wonderful cruise to the Scilly Islands via Falmouth, The Helford etc. We enjoyed marvellous settled weather but could only spend a few days in the islands - must return when we have more time.

South Coast Forum: Ocean Village

LSC skippers met on a gale swept Saturday 14th November at the Royal Southampton Yacht Club to discuss what it was that  members who sail on the south coast were looking for from our sailing  programme. Over a dozen intrepid South Coast skippers representing ports from Plymouth to Chichester braved the worst storms of the  year and the meeting was very constructive and some good suggestions  were aired and discussed.
