Keyhaven Sailing

Keyhaven is one of my favorite creeks in the Solent, so we decided to join Hurst Castle SC as a good excuse to spend more time there and explore the area.


On Sunday Joseph joined the juniors, sailing 2 up in a Hartley 12, the club has a small fleet of boats in really nice condition which include the Hartley's and of course the ubiquitous optimists.


Above ,the girls were too busy chatting so Joseph managed to sneak past despite being in their lee.


Checking sail trim, Joseph and his co-pilot had never met before but got on really well and helped Joseph get to grips with a new to him boat. So much of youth sail training is directed towards single handed sailing, but the more I observe  I think it's missing the point. If you have the next Ben Ainsley then maybe that's different, but getting kids out on the water, having fun with their friends, mucking about and enjoying sailing; surely that's what it's about?


Boats lined up on the spit, protected from all directions, it's a great place for kids to learn safely, picnic lunch on the beach and then back for some more sailing.
