Suffolk schools

24 Jun 2015

As you know this is something I am proud of. At Alton water we teach hundreds of children a year how to sail and we offer schools a discounted coaching programme. SWSA was an association that promoted sailing to our schools as a bona fide sport and we have supported them (and they us) in persuading some schools and parents that sailing is a great activity and a bona fide sport for kids, and everyone, an alternative to cricket and rounders if you like.

Sailing is a green sport that teaches children several sciences and maths as well as self reliance and problem solving. What's not to like about it as an activity? Sailing is competitive yet friendly and all participants are winners and all racers soon become friends, so what's not to like about it as a sport?
The regatta tomorrow gives kids a chance to show off their skills and represent their schools in what for some will be their first and for others, yet another, regatta. 
This regatta is put on as the result of a great deal of help and organisation by many volunteers. Every year, every one of those volunteers feels it was all worth it to see the kids perform. I, personally, owe those volunteers a great deal of thanks. as it is not only the children and the schools that benefit but it is all those who come to Alton Water tomorrow or any other day that also benefits from events such as tomorrow's.
But most importantly, every year the kids love it. they love racing and racing for their school. they love the water, the atmosphere and have a great day out. For spectators too the sight of many boats out on the water in all colours, shapes and sizes is a highlight of the year. So come on down and see the kids get away from their studies (and in some cases their Xboxes I am sure) and compete at Alton water for their school.

Finn Inland National Championships 2015 - RESULTS

21 Apr 2015


A strong turnout of 31 Finns made the trip to Alton Water for a great weekend of racing. 

Saturday provided a brisk 15-18 knots of high intensity; quick turn around racing that was perfect as an early season workout. With four races most sailors felt the effects when coming ashore after some really competitive racing on the windward/leeward course.

In the lighter and more trying conditions on the Sunday, age overcame youth with 2014 winner John Tremlett emerging to retain his title ahead of a very consistent Julian Smith.

Many thanks to the local sponsors of the event CopyIT and Seamark Nunn.

Yachts and Yachting report can be found here.

Results can be found here.

Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
