The reservoir I sail on is on an island formed by rivers on all three sides. Topologically speaking then the island is (if I understand this stuff correctly, which admittedly is unlikely) an irregular Torus, and therefore we are sailing round the *inside* of the island every race...

I believe Clevedon S.C. have a Channel race which involves rounding the island.

Well I think this probably is worth looking at.
A couple of Ospreys sailed from Lymington to Alderney
and back again last weekend.
See the photos and route ........
