I am unsure about sailing single handed – so is there any spare crew out there?05/10/2007 at 7:18 pm #6047AnonymousInactive
I had hoped that this topic would raise interest in day sailing at Poole. I am still quite new to the world of the UKWA really,and I am hoping to meet many Wayfarer sailors there.
I must warn you all, I am very lazy with my sailing and enjoy a bit of exploring,fishing and swimming too!
My first experience of sailing on the sea was Poole Harbour, I took an old Enterprise out on a very windy day! having managed to hold it upright for twenty minutes, I decided that it counted as a moral victory and packed it away!
Being the owner of a more sensible craft nowadays…ha! It is easy to enjoy the waves and take some stores on board.
To cruise alongside Brownsea, past Furzey and Green Islands on a sunny day takes some beating. But to drop anchor in Brands Bay, take lunch and have a swim!
If you are a family man, the non sailors may enjoy spending the day around the shops in Poole. An evening together at the local Italian restaurant makes for a perfect adventure.
To camp on a beach somewhere would be the ultimate, does anyone know where you can do this?06/10/2007 at 5:51 pm #6060Adrian PeryMember
In the absence of a crew I shall be unable to make it. Sailing is one thing but rigging, launching and recovering solo is too much of a risk.
Hope you have a good day.06/10/2007 at 7:04 pm #6061AnonymousInactive
What a shame, things have been conspiring against me here too!
I have just returned form towing Naomi back from the ASC to my home. to find the trailer board had fallen off of the car.
Within five minutes, I turned back on myself to find it had been swiped!
Fortunately my crew has saved the day with a loan of his car.
Please keep in touch. we shall have that sail without doubt.
