Cruising - Island Cruises and Informal Racing at Datchet
Richard Williams organises a series of island and harbour 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.
On Wednesdays, weather permitting, Richard also organises a group at Datchet Water SC, aiming to have 4 informal races round the reservoirs buoys during the day.
