S&CA shows its colours at London Pride 2017

Fourteen of us started the day early, with brunch and Prosecco, just what we needed to prepare us for a two hour wait in the sun outside the BBC HQ in Portland Place before the parade eventually moved off. The party atmosphere was terrific and we loved the sound of the cheers as we passed by the huge crowds lining the streets. Er… it’s only fair to say that the cheers were mostly directed at the “Recon” group directly behind us, sweltering in their pvc fetish gear and dog masks. We were better dressed for the occasion, some with remarkably short shorts and all with rainbow face paint. Afterwards we gathered on board the Tattershall Castle for copious amounts of Pimms before going our various ways, either to seek food or to continue the party elsewhere. A great time was had by all.

Croatia Charter 2016

croatia-charter-011sLast year’s charter in Croatia was so successful that we decided to return there this year. Six boats were chartered from marinas near Split / Trogir and 39 Club members enjoyed one or two weeks exploring the islands of Hvar, Vis and Korcula. The rocky coastline was not without its challenges, having a few unmarked rocks and some inconsistent navigation marks. One of our yachts entered the estuary near Sibenik and thence to an overnight stop at the splendid marina at Skradin, for a boat trip up the Krka river to the freshwater falls . The weathercroatia-charter-037s was pleasant, with warm seas for swimming and (it has to be said) not much in the way of wind but the sailing conditions were perfect some of the time. The “Hawaiian Evening” was one of several evening gatherings and was a resounding success, aboard ‘Hakuna Matata’, the very roomy “flagship” catamaran.
