Welcome to Sailing Scenes
Post-Christmas orders Apparently something called Christmas has been and gone, so now's the perfect time to arrange those non-Christmas, late-Christmas or New Year presents – and what better than a photo of sailing in the sun to brighten up these cold winter days? For Sailing Scenes it was business as usual over Christmas (postal delays excepting) and it will be the same over the coming week, so just get in touch with any orders or queries.

Poole Bay, 29th April We were in the bay on Saturday 29th, so if you saw our black RIB with red Sailing Scenes banners, we might have a shot of your boat. Use the search box (enter boat name, type or sail number) or have a look through the gallery here.
Meet the Spaekhuggers Ever met a Spaekhugger? If you sail in Denmark, Holland or Germany you will probably be familiar with these Danish double-enders. If they're new to you, you can see what they (and their big sister, the Grinde) look like here (and no, the photos weren't taken in Denmark, Holland or Germany!)
Cotswold Hunt – Boxing Day Meet – photos here
Looking for something? Use the search tab (on the right) to search by boat name, sail number, design type or event. This new site is still only a few months old, so if you don't find what you're looking for, don't forget to try the archive Sailing Scenes Site, which goes right back to 2003. Or just get in touch – always happy to help.
