We’ve all seen the news, some of us are fortunate to not be near the coast and directly see these storms. We have however driven to the sailing academy at Weymouth along the causeway by Chesil beach. This video was taken yesterday and for those who were expecting to do training this weekend at Weymouth, you’ll understand once you see this why it has been called off.
Enjoy the weekend whatever you get up to

8 boats attended the Winter Open Training at Island Barn Reservoir run by Julian Pearson.
Saturday was great sailing conditions with patchy sunshine and a Fc 3/4 blowing, In the morning I got the fleet to concentrate on starts especially starting at different ends and positions on the line, or starting on port tack. There was lots of improvement seen with the sailors able to select where they wanted to be much better. The afternoon was spent practicing mark rounding and Spinnaker work.
Sunday was a bit lighter but was gorgeous sunshine. In the morning we looked at boat set up especially leech tension, before doing some speed runs. With the lighter winds it was possible to get the sailors out of their boats into the coach boat to see what difference a bit of Kicker or mainsheet made to the sails.
All the sailors then took part in 2 short club races, it was good to see the sailors using the skills that they had been practising especially when one of the boats pulled off a near prefect Port tack start.
The Afternoon was very light and a bit of time was spent looking at keeping your wind clear before coming ashore to pack up.
The sailors all went away saying how much they had enjoyed the weekend and how much they had learnt, next of the London training events is at West Reservoir on the 8/9 February.
Finally a big thanks must go to IBRSC for having us and making us feel so welcome.

The Royal Torbay Yacht Club and Chew Valley Sailing Club have organised a winter programme of training for south west feva sailors of all abilities. Dec 7/8 was the second weekend of training and was hosted by Chew Valley Sailing Club, who provided a warm welcome and great facilities for the sailors. The winter training is following a structured programme to prepare the sailors for the class regattas next year in Weymouth and Carnac, France. This weekend focused on starting and Chew Valley provided an ideal inland water for the sailors to practice their key skills under the guidance of their Feva coaches: Rob Baddeley, Jacob Barnet and Jovian Short, all ex national Feva sailors themselves.
The weather provided perfect conditions for a full weekend of on the water training and practice races. The sailors all worked hard to perfect their hovering, accelerating, and pre start routines. Luckily the conditions were not too cold for the time of year so the sailors were able to spend plenty of time on the water but as the light faded the sailors came ashore for some theory sessions to give them a good background into the rules of starting. The coaches were impressed with the energy and enthusiasm of all the sailors during weekend and saw lots of improvement and growing confidence. South West Fevas will certainly be a talented team next season!
