Our Fleet / Sailors

“Only victory is sweet”

 

They are young, adults in their prime or younger. Pupils, students, company heads, employees and managers, they are what make our Club such a hive of activity. From all walks of life, the same passion unites them: to go out on the water and win.

 

Don’t tell them it’s the taking part that counts! Their motivation is to make their boat move, always better, always faster as if their life depended on it. Even when the lightest breeze ripples the surface, they hold their breath, not daring to move, as any movement could act as a brake on the momentum achieved. But when strong gusts batter the boat or a rogue wave fills the cockpit, or part of the rigging gives way, you have to see them: so quick, so precise, teeth clenched as they battle to relieve the pressure and save their mount. Between these extremes, they revel in the wind as it caresses their sails and the bow that leads them onto victory, which – as we all know – is sweet!
