Sunday June 12th saw 20 of our members meet up on El Portet beach in Moraira, to ‘Meet Louise and Wally’, our 2 donated dinghies. Wally is a 420 and Louise, (we think) is a GP14.
There is a secure box on site, where the ropes, rigging tackle, life jackets etc are kept. All hands helped rig the boats, then in crews of 3, with very light airs there were several successful trial sails. The boats were de-rigged about 1pm and we all retired to the nearby restaurant for ‘Refreshments’ and a great ‘Paella’ lunch. A good day was had by all, hopefully to be repeated.
The dinghies are available for members to use, but they must be with an experienced dinghy skipper. How this can be done and further details will be posted shortly.

Fancy going dinghy sailing?
Well I did, and was lucky enough to be invited along by Bob to join him, with Hugh and Piers, to check out the two boats (“Louise” & “Wally”) that are kept down at the beautiful and quaint little bay of El Portet, Moraira otherwise known as “Paradise Bay”. read more →
