30 Years Sailing

It's Our Birthday

30 Years Sailing


This July saw our first annual WDA sailing trip. The fleet of three 28ft boats crewed by the WDA team made its way from Poole Yacht Club to Lymington under the watchful eye of our three skippers; Phil Easton, Steve Lawrence and Pete Jennings.


Setting sail at 7.30am in order to catch the tide, the crews made it to Lymington in goodtime for lunch in the gardens of The Mayflower pub where we were joined by partners, children and a few stray members of staff.


While the wind direction worked in our favour on the first leg of the journey, with the crew making the trip largely unscathed and in good time, the return leg was a little more eventful! Five hours of sailing took its toll and three members of staff suffered serious sea-sickness!  Back in Poole,  the team was greeted at Poole Yacht Club with terra firma and a club house hog roast.


The cruisers looked impressive flying their 30 Years of WDA banners, the fleet making quite an entrance as they pulled into the Dan Bran pontoon at Lymington!

What's next for the WDA crew?


We plan on making the most of the sun-shine, so look out for the boats and our banners throughout the summer, possibly at the Bankes Arms Beer Festival this August, or you might spot us paddling in the harbour one evening this summer.


In the meantime, both Heather Jane and Restless will continue to take part in the Tuesday evening Pool Yacht Club Summer Race season. With this year’s races well under way, we look forward to posting pictures of the WDA team making it to the podium in the not-too-distant future!


And remember, if you see us… make sure you give us a WAVE!
