    As those of you who attended Bill McMillan’s funeral will know SSC has launched an appeal for funds to buy a new Committee Boat.

    Following Bill's death the Committee received requests from many members asking that something special be done to help us all remember Bill. The favoured request was that we set up a matched fund appeal to raise money to buy a new Committee boat that will be named to remember Bill. More about this and how to contribute in the members' section.

    Wind finder and Wind guru forecast wind increasing 19knts gusting 25knts. At present wind not that strong but overall conditions not great. I will be at club and if there are a number of people who still want to go out for a bit of a blast I will provide adequate safety cover. Sorry if this disappoints. Pete M

    Sadly Bill McMillan passed away on 18th June, our thoughts are with his family at this time. He was an inspiration to us all and will be sorely missed, particularily on the start line.

    Edit: the funeral takes place on 20th July at 12.30pm in Poole Crematorium followed a celebration of Bill's life at the Sailing Club from 2pm. See the clubhouse noticeboard or Facebook for full details.

    It appears that the RS Southerns on Saturday will all be held in Poole Bay and will involve 7 different classes racing on our route to Bournemouth Pier. Their race officers are not currently intending to use Studland Bay.We will therefore run the Rees Cup (Poole Bar Buoy) on Saturday. The Elizabeth Cup will be switched to 22 August when the tides are very suitable.

    As the summer series is all back to back races with a total of 24 races programmed, the sailing instructions are amended. In brief - if 21-24 races take place there will be 6 discards, 17-20 = 5 discards, 13-16 = 4 discards and 9-12 = 3 discards.
    Note that the first race starts are at 1030 and not 1100.
