Latest news

Twilight Series Membership
Our Twilight Series membership allows you to sail on Thursday nights from 20th April to 24th August for just £68, including berthing if you need it. Check out our joining page or contact Vanda Jowett, membership.new@littletonsc.co.uk.

Pursuit Race Start Procedure Changes
A new flip chart numbering system is being introduced for pursuit starts at Littleton from April. This will take away the necessity to synchronise your watch with the OD’s timer. View a video that explains how it works. Note that the flip-board shown in the video was a prototype which we are now in the process of improving for ease of use by ODs. The SI’s on the club website have also been updated.

Andy Hyland being presented with the Solo Open Meeting TrophyLittleton Solo Open Meeting - 2 April
10 visitors joined 8 home boats for our annual Solo Open Meeting. The light, shifty NW breeze provided challenging conditions for both the competitors and the race team. In a day when luck (or lack of it) played a major part for most, Spinnaker SC's Andy Hyland put on a superb display of light wind sailing in such varying conditions, to take the trophy home, qualifying with two 1st's and a 2nd.

Burgee Trophy - 26 February & 5 March
A total of 17 boats competed in the 2017 Burgee Trophy which consisted in theory of 10 races run over 2 days. This year the weather gods were not feeling generous and both days racing were cold and gusty, resulting in only 6 races taking place. Well done to Simon Derham (Solo), the overall winner and particularly to junior sailors, Edgar Povey and Katie Harris (RS Feva), who came second.

Brass Monkey Trophy - 5 February
14 boats competed in rather chilly conditions for the appropriately named Brass Monkey Trophy, with some close competition, culminating with the top 3 boats all on equal points at the end of the day. Congratulations to Julian Richards who was the eventual winner, having come 1st in the last race of the day.
