Massive thank you from Dual Fitness Training

For our bespoke cable trusting our kit takes a lot for us, we are glad we found you guys looks smart was on time and hold up to the job thank you 
Following on from last week's very satisfying progress, we are looking forward (if that's the right phrase!) to another rather busy week this week.

Our Bavaria 46, 'Tonic' and our two Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 35s, 'Spirit' and 'Spitfire' are all back in the water, the 35s with major investment in their rigs to complete prior to commissioning (new masts from Z Spars UK at £10k+ each plus standing and running rigging). We envisage our Sun Odyssey 389, 'Lightning', being re-launched Tuesday.

Olly, our new Marine Engineering apprentice, has been learning loads and getting invaluable experience working alongside more experienced Elite Sailing colleagues and our key partners and suppliers e.g. Chatham Maritime Marina, Rigit UK, Pirates Cave Marine Chandlery and www.zsparsuk.com - thanks everyone!

As the intensive winter maintenance and re-fit period draws to a close, the obliging yard folk at Chatham Maritime Marina prepare to get Tonic back into the water (minus her mast).

The hard work put in by members of the Elite Sailing team is clearly in evidence from the shiny cut, polished and waxed hull of Tonic with Lightning behind her. As training yachts, minor damage here and there to the grp hull is inevitable and being out of the water enables the team to repair this more easily prior to polishing etc.

Having been pressure washed when lifted out, our yachts have been antifouled with commercial grade Jotun from SML Paints and Coatings and so, with the odd scrub or two during the season perhaps, the hulls should remain nice and slippery throughout the year.

As Tonic sails right round Britain 3 times each season she clearly takes a battering from the sea and the weather at times. As part of our planned and preventative ongoing maintenance program, the highly professional team from Rigit UK inspected the spars and rigging (standing and running) of our yachts. Tonic will be having much of her rigging renewed along with some technical adjustments to help prevent unnecessary wear and tear.

Here's to an exciting 2020 season ahead, hopefully with many of you getting involved in some way with us!

I have now sold my boat and would like to say a few words for Pav and his team. I have known RigitUK for over three years and they did a few jobs on my boat to repair and enhance the rigging. I would like to thank Rigit for their resourcefulness, professionalism, help and friendship over these last few years. They were always there for me when I needed them and they did the right thing by me. Thank you Rigit.
Great customer service from Pav and his team. A rig inspection on Tuesday resulted in some clearly explained recommendations. By Friday, the mast had been out, issues fixed and delivered back in one piece ready for racing at the weekend. And as a treat, some odds and ends of worn running rigging replaced free of charge. Love the way Pav keeps in touch and nothing is too much trouble.
We are excited to announce the standings so far for the Royal Southern Summer Series high points scoring overall competition! The lucky (and of course very talented) winners of the high points series will receive the incredible gift of a trip to Antigua Sailing Week 2020, including:
- Return flights for up to 7 crew members courtesy of Antigua and Barbuda Tourism,
- Bareboat Dream Yacht Charter,
- Dockage in UNESCO designated Nelson's Dockyard, and
- Free entry to the 2020 edition of Antigua Sailing Week, April 25th - May 1st 2020.

We are now two events down, having completed the Antigua Sailing Week May Regatta and the RigIt June Regatta, with two events to go! So far we have experienced glassy water with sunshine as well as a breeze-on blast, so here's hoping the next regattas give us the goods.

Join us for the Champagne Charlie July Regatta on the 13/14 July and the Land Union September Regatta supported by Doyle Sails on the 14/15 September! The Champagne Charlie promises fizz, live music and giggles in the height of summer, with the September Regatta topping the season off with new prizes, new trophies, Octoberfest beer and sausage, yet more rum and, of course, the announcement of our winner.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!

There's only to weeks left until the second event of the Royal Southern Summer Series - Summer Series 2 - RigIt June Regatta! This time our regatta is being sponsored by Rigit UK who will also be providing prizes for the event.

The good news is that this means if you enter now and compete for the rest of the Series, you are still in with a good chance of winning the brilliant overall prize of a full paid trip for up to 7 members of your crew to Antigua Sailing Week 2020!! The trip includes flights, entry fee, dockage and boat charter for the week, generously provided by Antigua Sailing Week, Antigua and Barbuda Tourism and Dream Yacht Charter.

Today was a day of duty. After the sad news of the passing of HRH Prince Philip yesterday, @rigit_uk were asked to provide a flag mast for Bargate in the centre of Southampton so they could fly a flag at half mast in HRH Prince Philip’s honour. Ned got to work last night in creating this flag pole, and today @ninjadominic and I were asked to help hoist the new mast up the side of the building and fix it in place before 12 noon.
We managed to have the flag flying at 11:54 whilst we continue to work on securing the base of the mast in place. Prince Philip, I will never forget meeting you, and we thank you for all you have done, may you rest in peace 🇬🇧

A bit of a change from the day to day masts that we usually erect, today the team got together on their day off, to help get a very important mast put up at the last minute.
This one is stood on the Bargate, nearly a 1000 years old in the centre of Southampton, so that a flag could be flown at half mast in honour of the late HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who sadly passed away yesterday.
