It is with great sadness that we have learned of Erling's death. Erling was a much loved member and a stalwart of our community for many, many years and who played a pivotal role both at club level and nationally to raise the profile of catamaran sailing and the Sprint 15 in particular.

Sunday 24th February saw the third Sprint 15 Winter 2018/19 TT take place at Rutland. The previous TT took place in freezing conditions, under the threat of heavy snow fall and with strong gusty winds. Three weeks later, the sun was out, the temperatures were well into double digits and the wind forecast was very light – so at least we still had one aspect of the weather to complain about.
