Setting sail.  Former Commodore Peter Whatley  and his new yacht Henry set sail from Weymouth at the weekend on the first leg of a Round the World voyage and fellow Club member Bob Stevenson and his wife Jackie were on hand to see their departure..

'By chance we happened to be in Weymouth on the same day as the Whatleys.' Bob tells us.. 'We were able to take a short guided tour of this remarkable vessel which Peter says he has spent the last four years planning and building.

'He is now looking forward to enjoying the fruits of his efforts. Henry set sail at 1415 on Saturday,  June 22 heading for Ushant before crossing Biscay then to the Mediterranean. then planning to over winter in USA before attempting the North West Passage next summer.'
