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.

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.
