Aero association
Thursday, 23 October 2014 00:00

Aero associationThe RS Aero was unveiled in March and has rapidly gained popularity since that first moment. Several hundred boats have already been ordered, all over the world, with the majority of owners aiming to race their boats.

In response to that, a Class Association is being formed to organise events, communications, training and other activities. A Class Association Manager has also been appointed to work alongside a committee of owners and a network of club fleet captains to get things underway.

The RS Aero Class Association Manager will be Peter Barton, a talented, winning sailor across many classes and a respected coach. Since testing the boat, Peter has declared himself a fan, and is delighted that a fleet is being established at his home club, Lymington.
More info about the class and demo days is available via the new website:

Fishermen urged to read Safety Digest
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 00:00
Robert-GreenwoodFishing remains one of the most dangerous professions in the UK, with fatal accidents in 2014 already jumping up 25 per cent on last year. The National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations (NFFO) is urging fishermen and anyone who works at sea to minimise their risk of accident by reading the latest Safety Digest from the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s (MAIB) and by signing up for future editions.

The NFFO’s Safety and Training Officer, Robert Greenwood (pictured), wrote an introduction for the Fishing Vessel section and said: “One of the best learning mechanisms is reviewing previous mistakes and understating how to avoid them next time. However, such is the danger at sea that sometimes there isn’t a next time. We would urge anyone who takes safety at sea seriously to read these free digests and learn from the misfortune of others, rather than becoming doomed to repeat their mistakes.”

Based on MAIB official reports, the digests are presented in a magazine format for easy reading and omit names and specifics to provide anonymity to those involved. Each case study includes a narrative of the incident followed by a checklist of learnings that other skippers and seafarers can learn from.

Sunbeams shine at Mylor
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 00:00

Sunbeams shine at MylorA select group of fine old ladies of the sea have been celebrating their 90th birthdays throughout 2014.

As the classic Falmouth Sunbeams emerge from their racing season, one of the oldest sisters of the fleet is showing off a new facelift completed by the expert hands of Mylor Yacht Harbour’s master shipwrights.

Mylor Yacht Harbour is Cornwall’s busiest boatyard and marina, and the only yard in recent years to build new, wooden Sunbeams on the same lines as their elder sisters.

Prince Philip Yacht Haven work starts
Monday, 20 October 2014 00:00
prince_philipThe first pile has been driven in for the creation of the Prince Philip Yacht Haven. The Royal Southern Yacht Club and its close neighbour, the RAF Yacht Club, have worked together for several years to reach this milestone.

The need for this major construction project arose as a direct result of the deteriorating condition of the Royal Southern's sea wall but, looking to the future, the Club decided to make a virtue of necessity and improve its berthing facilities.  Once completed it will offer 70 walk-ashore berths for motor and sailing boats at all states of the tide, state-of-the-art services, flood protection for the shoreside facilities and a slipway for launching Optimists and other dinghies. Also incorporated into the design are facilities to enable sailors with severe physical disabilities, including those who are restricted to wheelchairs, to have direct access to boats afloat.
