Barton Newsline: June 2019

Barton Newsline - June 2019

May has flown by at Barton with much happening outside the day to day of designing, manufacturing and selling our high quality range of deck hardware. 

We have started filming our new "How to..." video series, joined in with the RYA Push the Boat Out programme and confirmed our sponsorship of the Women in Marine event at Seawork.  The team have also spent a lot of time out on the water sailing everything from Lasers to Diam F18's in their spare time. 
How to... Video Series

The Barton product range is designed to be durable and last for many years, but to maximise the life of your deck gear, it is wise to undertake basic maintenance on an annual basis.  To help you understand how straightforward it is to care for your Barton products we are putting together a series of "How to" videos. These are available on our YouTube Channel.   
How do you service a Barton Winch?  Christian explains.

Christian Brewer Volunteers to Help Get People Out on the Water for the First Time

On May 11th, my club (Whitstable Yacht Club) held a push the boat out day to encourage people to come and try sailing and maybe take up the sport we love.
The RYA initiative is a nationwide push to get people out on the water and at our club event we had 60 or so people who pre-booked to come and try out sailing.

I had control of the club Mirror dinghy, one of 12 boats out on the water including Topazs, Wanderers, a 420, a Hartley 15 and a Dart 18.  Everyone loved it and came back with huge grins!
I took out three 8 to 11 year olds one at a time and got them helming straight away, despite not having sailed before! The look on their faces was a joy. Another lady I took out, hadnt been sailing for 25 years and that was back in her native Turkey.  Just the thrill of being back on the water again reminded her of what she was missing and she has since joined the club to do more.
It is so important to get newcomers to our sport out on the water to experience the great feeling we take for granted. Wind in the hair, the splash of the waves, the physical effort, the sense of achievement, the camaraderie. And it is not all about racing, the RYA have realised this through the push the boat out initiative, get people out on the water first and if they want to race later on thats fine, but just get them on the water.
Sailing can come across an elitist sport only for the wealthy. It isnt.  I have proved this with my previous laser dinghy that I put on the water for £700 all in.  This included insurance and my yacht club subscription. Our club is looking to introduce a pay and play option for members who dont have the time to commit to owning their own boat and maybe this is the route club sailing should be taking on across the country.

Suffolk Yacht Harbour (SYH) will be hosting the 2019 Classic Regatta on the 22-23 June with starts available in the Fast, Slow and Stella classes.  Since 2002 SYH has developed the annual weekend into the largest Classic Regatta on the East Coast.  Find out more by clicking here.

In advance of the regatta taking place, SYH have taken into stock the full Barton Victory range of blocks in their Classic Marine chandlery.  Utilising modern block internals alongside classic, customisable looks, classic boat owners now have a high performance solution providing a competitive edge whilst out on the water.
