There’s a pile of new race results available on the club’s website on the Results 2017 page. See how you’ve done on the Summer Sunday Series, the 3rd Wednesday Series and 6 trophy days!! Look for the (new) markers.
It’s the club’s Laser Open event on Sunday, 3rd September, so this means it’s a closed water day (unless you are a participant of course).
You can find all details of the event under Open meetings 2017. First race starts at 11.00 with registration from 09.30.
There’s an extra day’s sailing this weekend as well as 2 trophy winning opportunities!
On Sunday, 27 August, it’s the Seamanship Trophy which comprises 2 races and a quiz in the bar. Start time 1.00 pm.
On Monday it’s the Fleet Challenge Trophy Day which is a 2 hour pursuit race. Any class with 3 or more starters will be awarded a trophy. Start time 1.00 pm.
And believe it or not, the weather looks sunny this weekend and maybe some wind too, so it’s looking good.
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.
