Island Cruises and
Informal Racing at Datchet
On Wednesdays, weather permitting,
a group of Seavets usually meet at Datchet Water SC, aiming to have 4 informal
races round the reservoirs buoys during the day. Further information from Richard
Richard also organises a series
of island cruises. Depending on the weather these can be quite strenuous, but
are more usually a gentle days cruising incorporating stops for lunch and tea.
The distance covered in a day is typically some 20 miles. A raceboard is essential
to ensure efficient beating, particularly in light wind conditions. The group
sails without rescue cover and so takes all possible safety precautions.
