WOSC 8 Hour Race 2017

The WOSC annual 8 Hour Race took place on Sunday 27th September.  For those members who have not competed in the race or not spectated, I will attempt to give you a flavour of what you have missed.  Read about it here.

Les and Graham win!

14:56:17 on Sunday 25 May 2014 was the time at which Les and Graham finished the second race of the day.  To the great surprise, nay amazement, of many it was in fact the winning time.  After the RO had checked, rechecked and checked his calculations once again it was announced that Les and Graham were indeed the winners of the race.  In fact the RO spent so much time performing his calculations that the last race was started late.  Read about it here.

Alexander and the Handbrake

See Alexander's great starts and the magnificent Wayfarer Handbrake demonstrated by Les and Graham.  Read about it here.

Wayfarer Inlands 2013

The Wayfarer inlands were held over the weekend of 7th and 8th September at Haversham.  Read the report to find details of sabotage, jewellery shopping between races and much more.  Read about it here.

Night Race 2013

Check out the action pictures from the WOSC Night Race which took place on 22nd June.  This renowned event is a cornerstone of the WOSC sailing calendar.  Pictures are here.

Shock! Horror! Wayfarer using tired old rags beats Albacore with brand new sails (made by dyslexic sailmaker) on the water

On Sunday Richard and Tom stormed round the lake proving that "Flat is Fast".

Les and Graham unable to sail

Les and Graham were unable to sail on 30 September, which was a beautiful day. 

Les was nursing a nasty face wound received at Stockport when he was bitten by an angry dog.  Graham says there are a lot of dogs in Stockport.

Graham, on the other hand had problems with his plumbing.  Les reckons it's Graham's age!

Check out latest pictures

Check out the latest pictures which include: OK Worlds in Denmark, WOSC 8 Hour Race and Sunday 29 July when Les and Graham flew the flag (and the Police turned up).

For future reference Les, as any vexillologist will tell you, the easy way to know if the Union Flag is the correct way up is to look for the fimbriation of the ordinaries.  If the fimbriation is below the saltire in the upper hoist canton, then the flag is being flown correctly.

Belated Update to Home Page

 

 May Cup 01

  

I was taken to task by Ross at WOSC because I had not updated my home page recently.  Well I thought that I should give you a flavour of what I have been up to over the past few months.

This photograph was taken on 1 May 2016 during the KPPC May Cup and shows David Ashby in a typically aggressive challenge.  As I have said elsewhere, a contact sport conducted at 20 mph - what's not to love?

Those of you who are interested in polo can see thousands of polo photographs in my galleries.  Those of you who might be interested in watching this exciting sport can come along to spectate and just see why I find it so exciting.

Kirtlington Park Polo Club is set in madnificent surroundings in rural Oxfordshire and on a beautiful Summer day it is an ideal venue for a picnic.  You will be made most welcome.  You can find details of match dates and times here KPPC.
