Back to Glasson from Langstone Harbour

    We Purchased Sandpiper back in November 2017 and fortunately the previous owner, Geoff, had paid for its berthing on the hard at Eastney with Eastney Cruising Association ( ECA ) ECA have a huge membership compared to ours and on Summer weekends they have problems parking all the sailing member’s cars on their available space, so their larger boats need to be cleared from the yard prior to car parking spaces being marked […]

Pirate Invasion May 2017

The pirate/viking do was a complete success this year. Good turnout,I wondered on Fri night whether it would be cancelled, the weather was for wind and rain at 2pm Loads of boats left in a bit of breeze and I took a bit of water in a rough patch on the corner, well we were 5 up in my dinghy. Uneventful up to the pub where we met Shirley who drove round and parked near […]

New web pages

This is going to be a diary of the progress towards a better site. The pages from the 2009  site are to be transferred to this wordpress section  as required. The old site will still be available, but will no longer be updated: The WP home page is rendering in strange ways, currently set in 2 rows top row 6 icons bottom row 4 icons but on a small tablet, they are very strangely arranged […]

Lighthouse Repairs

From our     Forum Dear All, Message from Lancaster Port Commission (LPC). I have advised Helen that I’d put it on the club ‘grapevine’. ‘ LPC are going to be putting a Notice to Mariners out next week about the repair works, which we hope will begin next weekend. We are intending putting a temporary exclusion area between the lighthouse and the shore, over the area where the contractors will be transiting at low […]
