Tollesbury Sailing Club is no ordinary sailing club. For one thing it has a long history dating back to just after the First World War. For another, it has a membership that owns and maintains some impressive boats, including a range of East Coast smacks. And, finally, it has an enterprising webmaster who, as we’ve seen, has put up some extremely useful material on knot tying, sailing in the area, visiting the club and more.
Tonight, however, I’d like to draw your attention to the club’s photo galleries.
The pictures above come from the Tollesbury Smack & Classic Yacht Race a few months ago in early September. Great shots! There are West Solent One-Designs here, a variety of smacks, and a little modern Drascombe Lugger.

While you’re there, it’s worth having a look around the site’s other departments, including the refit of the Charlotte Ellen a few years ago, and the page of photos of traditional boats found around the Blackwater.
