    Duncan Wells (who gave a talk at the club earlier in the year) will be demonstrating his MOB LifeSaver at the SBS this year.  If you are going be sure to look out for the demo which will be running them 3 times a day at 1130, 1330 and 1530. 

    Also remember that if you are an RYA member you get a free SBS ticket...

    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.

    I have two 12v offset bayonet navigation bulbs that came with my new Tricolour masthead fitting.  Useless to me (SS is 24v).  Email me if you want them.  Pick them up this weekend or on a Wednesday 19th June. (dick.beddoe@gmail.com)

    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).

    What an incredible success!

    Marion and Simon plus their support team of Jane, Pat, Zoe and others surpassed themselves on this fantastic evening.  Over 50 members and guests sat down to an wonderful Italian evening.

    The splendid four course meal started with a selection of cold meats, followed by that Italian favorite, lasagna plus healthy salad, followed again by a not so healthy but delicious Tiramisu, and if that wasn't enough a selection of cheeses rounded up the feast.

    Clearly the Channel Sailing Club social events are pushing the standard ever higher.  

    For those of you who went, I hope the evening was as enjoyable for you as it was for me.  For those of you who missed it, bad luck, remember to book earlier next time (you won't regret it).

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Keith Gibbs after a short illness.

    Keith was a long standing and Honorary Life Member of the club. He will be much missed by all those who sailed with him, learnt from him, and were regaled by him in his inimitable style. 

    Our thoughts and best wishes are with Doreen, Carl and the family.

    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.

    Image result for rnli

    The RNLI event on the 7th November was a great success on all fronts.  Richard Bywaters gave us a fascinating presentation on the history of the RNLI including some extraordinary video footage of both inshore and offshore lifeboats. 

    But far more importantly the club managed to donate over £350 towards the charity at this one event through the collection and the purchase of RNLI merchandise. 

    Richard Bywaters and Peter Chapman both wanted to thank you, the members, for your generous support of this amazing charity.
