Martine Clayson sails a laser at the London Corinthain Club and we had the pleasure to host her last weekend for both Learn to Race and the final Autumn Pointscore. Martine handled the tricky southerly conditions very well and met members during the post racing drinks. She elicited sympathy with tales of icey winter conditions on the Thames!
Martine has extended an invitation to Double Bay members to visit her club if in London. Dinghies have been raced on the River Thames at Hammersmith (West London) since 1894. The Corinthian Club sails every weekend all through the year, racing on the reach that extends for two-and-a-half miles between the bridges at Hammersmith and Barnes. The clubhouse, Linden House, is a beautiful 18th Century merchant's riverside house. The main classes sailed at the club are Lasers, Enterprises and RS Visions. More detail here. Martine can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Martine also shared that as well as racing some of her fellow members sometimes sail up and down the river visiting the pubs along the way … she thought that might appeal to Double Bay members and I suspect that provides an indication of who she met at drinks last Saturday!
