We had a fantastic evening celebrating Xmas on Saturday 10th January 2015 in Russian style - It really was a good way to lift the spirits (mainly Vodka on that score) in the early new year. Thanks to Irina, Alexey and all the other helpers and performers.

We were served a really sumptuous Xmas dinner after some exciting racing on 14th December. It was great to see the clubhouse packed and to see some old friends too. A big vote of thanks to Chris and Rob and their team of helpers.
Now We’re looking forward to:
Well done to all our sailors who braved challenging conditions to put on a good show for Kingsmead. It was especially pleasing to see a good turnout of our youngsters and some of our newer racers too.
Our thanks to the team who ran the race and kept us safe and fed - Peter, Aaron, Dave, Jose & Margaret and to Norman for his work on the camera.
You can find the results here. Watch this space for some photos once we've had them developed....

KSC Junior Team sails at Maidenhead
Well done to Natasha, Mary, Russell, Daniel, Seb and Mark who did KSC proud in the 2014 Thames Challenge held at Maidenhead SC on 28th June.
Up against stiff competition from teams that obviously race together on a regular basis and despite being well-placed both times races were abandoned as lightning flashed around the lake they did a great job for KSC. Congratulations and keep sailing so we can improve next time.

Weed Cutting
Steve the weedcutter tells me that he has cut and removed about 70 tonnes of the rotten stuff! Sailing should be much easier now - please note though that there is plenty of it left (clearing all of it would have taken around 10 days) so you still need to be careful..... click here to have a look at the boat that did the cutting
