End of season meal and Prize Giving – 14th October

Martin’s Ristorante Italiano

The season is nearing its end for another year and that means its time for the End of Season Meal and Prize Giving!   This will be slightly earlier than normal on the on the 14th October in the club house.  This avoids half term so hopefully more can make it.

Martin Browne has very kindly agreed to cook an Italian themed meal.

Its always a great night and the food is fabulous.

The cost for this unmissable evening will be around £15 a head.  We need to know who’s coming in advance, so if you haven’t already please let me or Phil Harlow know as quickly as you can.

If you have Trophies please bring then back to the club at least the week before in a polished state ready for this years winners

Hope to see you all there

Report and Result 17th Sept

Never listening to the weather reports! Light winds and rain by lunchtime… er nope…..the select few who ventured down enjoyed sunshine and a northerly F3. The ebbing tide assisted the upwind legs resulting in more fun time downwind with some small rollers to practice your surfing.
Race 1 saw a three way battle front between Keith and Anna (500, 1st) , Phil and Lorna (400, 2nd) and Ed and guest crew (Hobie), with all three crossing the line within a few seconds of each other.
Tom and Stuart (505) set the pace in the second race, with Simon and Bruce (400) from WOBYC next closely followed by Phil and Lorna. After the first lap these three rounded the leeward mark together with Tom just getting his bow in front to get water round the mark.  By the end of the Race Tom had edged away to take the win and Simon just getting the better of Phil and Lorna to take 2nd
By the start of the final race the wind had eased slightly. Tom and Stuart led Simon and son followed by Phil and Lorna round the windward mark.  Mainsheet problems caused Phil and Lorna to retire leaving Simon chasing Tom to the finish.  In the previous races the 505 had been cautious hoisting their spinnaker, leaving it until after the gybe but this time it went up. This saw them stretch out their lead each lap crossing the line well ahead to take the win.
All in all a most pleasant days sailing, followed by lunch enjoyed outside the clubhouse in what easily could have been a mid summers day.

Dave.

Thursday Report + Results

Last night 7 boats (6 racing, Ed and Holly sunning themselves) managed to get in 3 races in some surprisingly very light winds. Dave in the Rs300 had the race 1 to himself winning by a margin of 6 mins and nearly lapping the lasers. Keith just pipping Tamsin to the line after late Gybe and heading to the other end of the line.  Race 2 saw Tamsin (and the rest of the fleet) Leave Keith behind, Dave not having it all his own way as Tamsin kept close to the finish, Dave just beating Tamsin by a single second on corrected time, with Steve Gray finishing 3rd.  Race 3 saw Dave take the honours again with another close laser battle,  Tamsin just getting away on the last leg to take second with Keith 3rd.   We then returned to shore for pasties in the club house, many thanks to Richard for running the racing.

Thursday and Britania pier results now available on results page.

Thursday 13th Report

Seven boats launched on a warm sunny evening. With the wind blowing from the south one would expect a fairly steady breeze but there were plenty of shifts to concentrate the minds.  Despite the predication that low water would be around 18.30 there was still quite a ebb tide at the start the first race. Richard Brown sailing a Laser won the start and quickly headed inshore….followed by the rest of the fleet. By the windward mark there were two separate fleets, the four Lasers having a close battle and well ahead were the ‘others’, comprising of a 300, 400 and D-One. Richard Fryer in his 300 slowly sailed away from the others to finished first over the line. Richard Brown held onto his lead ahead of the other Lasers.

Richard Fryer lead the way in race two opening up quite a lead. Steve, D-One and Phil and Lorna, 400 were neck and neck throughout the race with Steve leading at the finish. The battle of the Lasers continued with Richard, Tamsin and Keith all leading at some point during the race, however at the finish Keith claimed Laser honours with Richard and Tamsin only a few seconds behind.
