    As I am sure you are all acutely aware the current Coronavirus pandemic has affected us all. 

    The committee and myself have taken the very sad decision to effectively cancel the operation of the club whilst the government restrictions are in place. 

    So with immediate effect all Wednesday evening meetings are cancelled and the talks and social events postponed.  Regrettably, so too are all races and rallies.

    If you have signed up for any of the events that are due to take place in the next few weeks, I strongly recommend you contact the "Organiser" who can give you some advice on other possible sailing options, but as far as the Channel Sailing Club (CSC) is concerned these events are no longer going to happen.

    Please do keep checking the CSC web site as we will post any relevant information as we receive it, and we will of course send emails out with updates and hopefully we can revive the club later in the year.


    Please do stay safe

    I have been a member of CSC for several years although regrettably rather inactive recently.  In the days of Richard Hart and Bill Cox I used to participate in the Small Boat events, but of late my sailing activities have been limited to family.

    Sadly, the time has come to sell Little Lizzie, my ETAP 22i sail number 216 built in 1989, which I have been proud to own since 1993.  It is a great little trailer sailer with a four wheel break back trailer if needed, although I have always kept her at Chichester marina where she is on pontoon H16.  Little Lizzie has been well cared for and has been a lot of fun.

    I wonder if any Club members would be interested.  She is in good seaworthy condition, ( 4 berths but ideal for two ) and if anyone is interested I would like her to go to someone who would appreciate her.

    White Knight of Wessex is for sale after the FastNet 2019 campaign, so can be yours from mid August 2019.

    Current CSC Championship winner, White Knight also won this prestigious trophy in 2016.

    White Knight of Wessex is Humphry One Design (HOD) 35 - British designed and built cruiser-racer that is competent in any wind and is equally at home offshore as it is around the cans.

    HOD35 are very solid boats that are happy to be raced or cruised. The boat has extensive sail wardrobe, B&G electronics, Raymarine autohelm (capable of holding the boat steady in 30+ kts winds offshore), Eberspacher fuel heating and a new (2 year old) engine (Beta 25 capable of cruising at 6-7kts ) with just over 300 hours. There is plenty of safety equipment that comes with the boat. 

    Reason for sale is that due to other interests/activities I have no time to sail, hence cannot use the boat as in previous years. 

    Happy to give some tips and guidance to the new owner(s). 

    If you have serious interest in owning a fast and reliable boat or know someone who does, please get in touch (07810 522 044).

    This month all hosepipes were removed from Royal Clarence Marina under the direction of the water utility company, and their insurers, based on the risk of waterbourne bacteria or washback into the mains water system.  

    Any how the purpose of the bulletin was to recommend to members LIDL in Gosport (or any other larger LIDL store I guess) they are selling 30 metre retractable hoses which are very good for £21.99 pack up into a small bag with a trigger spray gun .  Very good value and function,  plenty long enough for most marinas.
