Look no Seatern!

August starts with Seatern back at Swallow Boats for new paint work and repairs to her stem. It ends with a gleaming Seatern "Yacht" and less than gleaming weather!

Not sailing weather
Click on Thumbnail I needn't have rushed to get Seatern back from Swallow Yachts! There has been a trailing weather front over the country all week with gales and occasional torrential rain storms. The photo was taken on the Wednesday when I was supposed to be taking some friends sailing. I'd actually cancelled due to the wind strength, it was a good decsiion!

Itchen Incident

Click on Thumbnail Someone reported a person in the water near Cobden bridge... we had the Coastguard helicopter, the two RNLI lifeboats from Calshot, the Harbour Master, and a Police Rib all searching the local part of the Itchen. Click on Thumbnail Nothing was found; either it was a hoax or, more probably, a youth swimming off Riverside Park. Seemed amazing that the RNLI came from Calshot given all the local boats on the river.
