Just over two years I was in Chichester Harbour aboard ‘Ladybird’. She was anchored off East Head when a flotilla of dinghies crewed by youngsters arrived on the scene. They carried out a number of manoeuvres, including sailing different courses relative to the wind, reefing, beaching their boats and anchoring off for lunch. I was impressed with the way their CYE* Sailing Centre instructors supervised and managed them.
Most of the under-mentioned URLs come from my old Small Sailboats website, but encouragingly I have found a number of new ones to replace those that no longer function.
Here’s a link to my blog article that refers to the time when ‘Ladybird’ was anchored off East Head:
