    As September 2021 marks the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the X One Design Class Association (XODCA) we can start thinking ahead with the roadmap to recognise that centenary.

    Large fleets for Itchenor mid August keelboat regatta August 17t h - 21 st 2020 After the preceding weeks of light winds and baking temperatures the keelboat sailors of Itchenor Sailing Club welcomed the stronger winds of last week.

    Low tide sailing on Wednesday so X 129 pu t it to the test before the race started, giving Chris Creek the opportunity to be useful and pull them off the mud. Problem was that it started a fashion! Everyone wanted to slide in the mud. Chris was so busy pulling numerous boats off the mud that he ran out of fuel! X 51 would have won if she had a

It was absolutely wonderful to be finally out on the sea gliding through the waves in Merlin, especially with no water pouring in! With a couple of hours tuition from Roger, Felicity and I got on the start line and kept up with the

    As I was saying; can it really be 1983 that I first stepped into an XOD with Ivan Coryn to look at the very latest in Hood sail design? As a trapeze boat crew all I can recall is being surprised that when we pulled up the kite on that very windy weekend we did not seem to go a whole lot faster. Sadly I cannot recall which XOD it was that we sailed
