Sandwell Valley Sailing Blog

Welcome to our sailing blog


Trying to let everyone know what's going on and to have somewhere for your thoughts and ideas about sailing and club activities.


I haven't worked out how to allow you to post on the blog, so just email any contributions and I'll post them.  I think you can add your own comments though.


I think I'm supposed to add pictures sometimes, but I'm too busy sailing to take any!  So if the guys on the bank or in the safety boat could take a few and send them in, I'd be really grateful.

Cygnets are launched

Our first Cygnets session today. Welcome to Emma, Lucy, Jonah and Ben.

A lot of basic sorting out to do, but we all got to sail in quite a lively wind. A lot of enthusiasm despite rather cold conditions - it is bank holiday weekend after all! - so I have high hopes that we will have a lot of fun this summer and develop some good sailors along the way.

Thanks to Lucy and Jonah for crewing with me in the afternoon races. A couple of good close contests as is becoming the regular way here.

Also thanks to Adam for taking more videos and uploading to Youtube.

His latest is here: and you can find his others by searching for "Adams Sailing" on YouTube.
