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.
