AnchorBuddy Mobile App for Anchoring

We are delighted to announce the release of AnchorBuddy – an app for mobile devices to assist when calculating the depth to anchor and scope to use.

It has been developed by two Club members – Stephen Gorst and Austin Goudge – and is completely free to use.  It doesn’t require an Internet connection once it’s downloaded and is available for both iOS and Android (phone and tablet).

The Club even gets a mention in the credits!

Talk by David Rainsbury

ib0226David is the author of the popular Irish Sea Pilot, a guide that many of us use when cruising the area.

The evening of the 21st May was a great success, with a very full club (standing room only) to listen and watch David give a very interesting and well received talk about his sailing experiences, as well as advice and tips on sailing in the Irish Sea and the wider area.

Based on this success, we would like to continue to invite interesting speakers so if you have any ideas or would like to recommend someone, please get in touch at [email protected].
