Knots and Tides

Turning the Tide – an intro evening to tides, wind, and buoys in our harbour. (And Knotty Night reminder)

Remember Knotty Night is this Friday.

It’s shaping up to be a great mixture of new members and seasoned knotters. Still bookable if you’ve forgotten (should’ve knotted some ribbon on your finger 😊)

And on behalf of the sailing committee and Sue and the social committee, I’d like to announce the second seamanship evening of the year. July 22nd.

Frequently requested, please sign up for a beginner’s look at how the tides work in our harbour, and what affects them. Plus some basic training on all those bobbing buoys out there and what they mean for you.

Did you know, the moon and the sun have their own gravitational fields, much like Earth. Whilst they won’t pick us up and make us float off into space, they are powerful enough to move the oceans around the planet…literally pulling the sea towards them.

For more fun facts and key information for being out on the water come and join in on 22nd July.

We have an external speaker coming along for the evening. Formerly Royal Navy, John Bearman now works for the marine policing unit in our local waters and is a RYA Instructor.

There’ll be chilli and rice served between 6pm and 7pm and our speakers will start at 7pm. You don’t have to eat to come along, but pre booking either way would be appreciated so we know numbers to expect/cater for.

Here’s the link:


Although this evening is developed for newer members, our seasoned sailors, rowers, and paddlers are very welcome as the more advice and guidance in the room the better.

(Please note though this is friendly advice, and not formal training. Your safety is 100% in your hands, not anyone else’s).

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Jane: What did the ocean say to the shore?
Sue: Nothing. It just waved.

Ebb & Flow:

We have a for sale / wanted section on the website, but having had this email through I thought I’d put it in this section:

Wayfarer 679: Red Tape

It probably happens to us all eventually. Age and health issues force lifestyle changes that are quite unexpected and come in a great rush!

My dinghy racing days are over. I will find another way to get on the water but, for now, must find a new sailor for a rather special wooden Wayfarer that was built in Portsmouth Dockyard in 1963, fully renovated in 1999 and sailed regularly for the next 20+ years. To my mind, it is a Portsmouth boat that should continue to be sailed in Portsmouth waters – and Langstone Harbour + the Solent is difficult to beat.

It would please me enormously to pass Red Tape (+ all the ‘extras’) to a new owner, preferably a Tudor member, who has an interest in dinghy sailing – perhaps with a young family in tow – and could envisage giving the boat yet another 20 years active use.

The price – I would be pleased to exchange her for a decent donation to a charity – preferably one supported by TSC.
Interested – or know someone who could be – please do get in touch.

As ever, feel free to drop me an email at this address, it is always nice to hear from members. Any ideas of things to include in the Tidal Diamonds would be most welcome.

Let’s be careful out there.
