Parkstone YC Open 21/22 May

Alex Irwin from Sportography took some stunning photos, including aerial drone shots.

It was perhaps the wettest start to an Open that we have had in years. The sailors didn’t seem to mind, but some of the RIB drivers did make very make convincing drowned cat impressions. The strong winds provided  exciting sailing on the first day.

Hadyn Sewell kicked off with 2 bullets to become the leader overnight, with James Foster close behind.

Get Involved

For the last year, IOCA South has not had an Area Rep.  So, to reduce the amount that any one person needs to do, we have split the role up into 4.  Ian Cole has kindly agreed to run the Spinnaker training again next year.  Gillian Schonrock is taking on the role of Treasurer.  We are looking for 2 more people to join us:
  • Newsletters.   Create and send out newsletters, just like this one.
  • Events.  Co-Ordinate the Southern Traveller Series and Area Champs.  You don't need to run the events themselves, just co-ordinate with the event organisers and sponsor, sort out series prizes etc.
Neither role will take up much time, or require any special skills or experience.  Click here for more details.
