Safety - Bill Forsyth

A keen dinghy and keel boat sailor, I have worked in the maritime sector for over 30 years , the last 20 in front line search and rescue and vessel survey and inspection. Prior to this I was fortunate to be able to make a living sailing other peoples yachts, and managed to complete several transatlantic crossings and sailed to and from various Mediterranean ports.

Sailing Convener - Howard Smallwood

The sailing convener is responsible for organising the running of the racing at LSC, and is a good initial contact if you are interested in taking part.

I first ventured afloat, aged 9, in a clinker dinghy with a faded brown lugsail. By the time I was twelve I'd built a Mirror dinghy and soon after was lucky enough to be racing a Merlin-Rocket off Shoreham and had managed to win my first race!
