August 7, 2022

WINSOME is looked after very well and this results in that we can still sail her during competitive racing.  Two competitors we want to congratulate on behalf of the […]

Cowes Week 2022, day 6

August 5, 2022

Today we won not only on the water (6th time), but also on rating (2nd time). It was a perfect race for us, no mistakes were made. Winsome crossed the Solent like a dolphin. Leen was the only one who observed that our course was shortened at the sailing mark The Boss. Without his observation we would have […]

Round the Island Race, 25 June 2022

July 5, 2022

It was great to be back sailing again on Winsome in Round the Island (RTI) Race, after a 2 year break, due to the event not being held in 2020 and 2021, due to COVID-19. This year, the sailing conditions were great – nice strong winds (but not too strong!), sunshine, a great team onboard […]
