On Saturday 2nd September it’s the Novice and Junior Helm Trophies. Therefore there will be no Saturday Club teaching as normal, but all Saturday Club members are welcome to take part in the racing. Remember, there are trophies up for grabs!!
There will be 3 races with the 1st race starting at 1.00 pm – please note the earlier start!
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.
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!!
