Welcome to my website. I'm Robin and here I share a bit about the things that interest me. Here you will find articles on:

And maybe others. Check out the menu on the left. Be patient, I am only just starting to rebuild the site. It will take time to cover all of these.

A Summer Summary

August bank holiday and the sunner is, in theory, nearly over. It hasbeen a busy one, with full time work and also trying to establish myself as a Sail Cruising Instructor. I have spent several weekends and a full week working for verious sailing schools. This has involved introductions to Solent Sailing, Stary Yachting, Competent Crew, Day Skipper and ICC. One of the more interesting and unusual was looking after a group of yougsters doing a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Gold Expedition in a yacht.

Classical Music in the Provinces

Last night I went to see the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Portsmouth Guildhall for a programme of Mussorsky, Scriabin and Berlioz. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening, but it did set me thinking and wondering what sort of future exists for classical concerts in places like Portsmouth.

A Weekend in the Country

Comfortably installed for the annual Febstock weekend with friends. Much beer being drunk. Much good food and good music to come.


I've not done a lot to the site for a while. I really need to find the time. An update on the sailing front is that I have completed my Dinghy Instructor Pre Assessment the other weekend. it was good to be back in a dinghy for the first time in a couple of years, even if it was cold and windy!

Going Mobile

I've added a new theme to the site for mobile users. It should work automatically from a mobile device. There's also quite a bit more content been added.

Another Update

I've added an introductory page on offshore sailing. (More to follow). I've also created a gallery of pictures from the "Three Men on a Boat" Broads trip.

Three Rivers Race

I've added stuff about the annual Three Rivers Race. Look on the Sailing menu.
