Results for the 2nd Wednesday Series, Father’s Day and Captain’s Day Trophies are now available on the Results 2017 page. Look for (new).
Summer is well and truly here now, in spirit if not in sun, but the nights are already drawing in! So as scheduled, now that we are in August, the start of Wednesday racing is back to 7.00 pm (from 2nd August).
To further improve the clubhouse and grounds and prepare for the Open Day on 20th May, there is another working party this Saturday, 22nd April.
Paul is looking for volunteers to come along and help and bring useful tools such as a strimmer, jet wash, brushes and rakes. There is also a radiator to re-fix back on the wall in the bar area, so plumbing spanners and tools would be useful.
The working party team is meeting at the clubhouse from 10.00 am. Please bring a packed lunch. Many thanks!!
Paul, Ian and colleagues are running a Laser training session on Sunday, 12th March, starting at 11.00 am up at the club. The session is primarily aimed at new Laser sailors, but any Laser sailor who fancies a refresher will be more than welcome.
The plan, depending on how time goes, is to cover rigging and tuning, basic manoeuvres, improving tacking and gybing, upwind and downwind technique and hiking. It is intended to complete the training session in time for the normal club race at 1.00 pm.
The new 2017 sailing programme gets underway this weekend (11/12 March) with the first of the season’s Saturday races. The Warm-up Series will start at 2.30 pm with a second race scheduled for 3.30 pm.
The Warm-up Series will continue on Sunday with a 1.00 pm start as usual.
The forecast looks reasonable, so a great opportunity to get your boat out on the water.
The Working Party on Sunday 5th March was a great success with a good turn out from members in less than ideal conditions. There was much cleaning, tidying and chopping and the club looks a lot better for it. There are still some more jobs to do so the plan is to do a couple more sessions before the club’s Open Day on 20th May.
Thanks again to everyone who managed to come along.
