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.

The Comets are Coming , Hurrah, Hurrah!

I missed the exciting winds last week and several people are now challenging me in the capsize stakes!

This week promised to be very tame, but turned out to be a quite lively , if rather perverse, wind in warm sunshine. So a great afternoon for the 15 boats that sailed and some very interesting races. I even managed to win one, helped by my super-lightweight crew, Jonah.

The big news this week is two more Comets (Duo's). I think we now have 4 Comets, 3 Duos and a Versa, though I expect to be corrected on these details. Getting to be real fleet. I spotted an old notice board someone had made for a Comet Open Meeting at SVSC - maybe it'll come in handy again!

Less than a month now 'til Push The Boat Out. Tell people about it and encourage them to come along and have a go. Mark 20th May in your diaries and BE HERE. If you've not got a specific job, get a boat on the water sailing and/or chat to visitors and make sure they see what a nice friendly bunch we are.
