Hamble River Cadets

Hamble River sailing Club held their first cadet session of the season on what was a cold and overcast Saturday morning. Despite the weather there was a good turn out. Joseph was among the youngsters who were along for their first sail in an Optimist, or rather the polypropylene plastic version apprpriately nicknamed a "Plopi".

We parents stood (and shivered) anxiously from the shore watching as a bunch of 4 and five year old's sailed off across the river.

But we need not have worried each went with the very capable skipper in charge, sailing Joseph around the course was Rebecca, both were having a great time in the blustery conditions and getting very competitive.

The morning was a success, it was all smiles and "when can we go again?"


  1. Good to see he was wearing a helmet.

  2. Wait a minute - last year Joe was crewing on a yacht. Is he now trying to pass himself off as just a regular guy?

  3. very cool! I saw your first picture, and at first thought Joseph was going to be sailing it solo!

  5. I liked the way you put together everything, there is certainly no need to go any further to look for any additional information. You mentioned each and everything that too with much of ease. Your writing has impressed me. It’s simple, clear and precise. I appreciate your work.
