Dinghy Racing

Last Tuesday 7th saw a surprisingly strong wind. 3 boats took to the water. We had one race which lasted around half an hour with the cruisers out too. Dyfan took a tumble in the drink with a capsize before the starting sequence had begun. John Mckellar also fell off whilst in the trapeze for a swim.  However, after working hard they soon warmed back up. In first place was Jamie in his Osprey followed by Dyfan in the Rs Aero 7 then Peter and John in another Osprey.

Last Sunday saw another good turnout for the Sunday racing on the 12th, the fleet was missing one boat but that will be mentioned a bit later on. Four Ospreys took to the water along with a Scorpion and a Laser Radial. The racing took place in a lovely bay with enough wind to get the boats moving at least. The first race saw the victors Peter Rose and Oscar Thompson first in the Scorpion then followed by a fleet of Ospreys Ted and Lucas in one then followed by Jamie and crew then Carwyn and his. Then in came Sophie in the Radial and then John Mckellar with his crew in the last Osprey. In race two there was a change at the top with Ted and Lucas in the top slot then Peter and Oscar in the Scorpion. Next was Sophie in the Laser Radial then the rest of the Osprey fleet came in with Carwyn next then Jamie with John all with their respective crews.

Cruiser Racing

The first race two weeks ago cancelled due to the bad weather, but with much improved weather last Tuesday 7th three boats got away. The course was set to north high cliff buoy and back again, Blake In Slipstream had a good start closely followed by Roy in Chiron and Phil in accolade. Blake rounded first mark after a long beat to windward, after the run back slipstream won the Harry billing cup with only 3 seconds separating Roy and Phil. The weather last Saturday wasn’t on the cruiser fleets side with four boats starting the race,  unfortunately ran out of wind and it does take a little bit to get them on the move so it was abandonded.

Next race tomorrow Saturday at 5pm

Junior Sailing

Just a quick reminder to all registered juniors, please turn up by 1700 planning to get on the water by 1745.  All sessions are weather permitting but sailing sessions are never cancelled as there is onshore sessions that have to take place in order to complete the course.

If you require any more information then please phone Blake on 07717842713

RS Vareo National Championships winner John Nutall of Tenby Sailing Club

The RS Vareo National Championships were held at Paignton Sailing Club 10-12 May, on day one the RS Vareos were treated to lovely sunny weather and steady 10 knots. Defending champ Luke Fisher sailed well with a 2,1,3 so far but overnight leader is Jon Nutall of Tenby Sailing Club with 1,2,1.  The rest of the fleet have an even spread of results so there’s everything to play for going into day two. Day Two however the wind changed to the North for the day and was generally lighter.  This gave relatively little chop which appealed more to the pond sailors.  In the end Luke and Jon got the first two spots in every race except race six where Nick Crickmore found the go switch taking the lead on the first off-wind leg and then building to finish well clear, only to be disqualified later so normal service resumed. Then day three the breeze clocked right and settled earlier than forecast so racing got underway on time.  It was light with an Easterly chop, slowly dying throughout the day so favouring the lighter sailors.  Nick Crickmore found his upwind pace getting two seconds and a third.  Luke ‘no mistakes’ Fisher put in his usual solid performance to get two bullets, but a first in race one just before the breeze got too light sealed the deal for John a new champion at Tenby Sailing Club.

They were kept under the ever-watchful eyes of the four Instructors Max and Harry Richards, Alistair MacKay and Howard Yeates.

Dinghy Racing

Last Sunday’s race was a little problematic at the start as the fleet had light but enough wind to sail, however after the second lap the wind dropped. After some waiting and debating we decided to call it on lap 2 times and cancelling the 2nd race. Calm conditions and a little bit of drizzle to finish it off as we were coming in. The Results are as follows, in 1st place was John Nuttal and crew in the Laser 2000, 2nd Dyfan Williams in his RS Aero 7 then in 3rd was Ted Lewis and Lucas Boissevain in the first of the three Ospreys to eventually cross the line. 4th place went to Carwyn and crew and then Mike Stace and Deanna Morten.

Dinghy Racing

Sunday 07 April saw a good-sized fleet of nine boats take to the water in the first two races. The bay had a nice breeze albeit a little lumpy to begin with. After the first race finished the wind dropped and shifted slightly but the sun made it nice to stay out there and carry on racing. There was even a fly past by a Royal Navy EH101 Helicopter commonly known as the Marlin.

The results for race one are as follows; In first place in one of the Ospreys was Dan and Carwyn, then the Scorpion of Peta and Oscar, Mike and Deanna in their Osprey, then Dyfan in his RS Aero 7 closely followed by Ed and Emily in the RS500. Next over the line was Ted and Lucas in another Osprey, Sophie in a Laser Radial, Jamie and Tim in the last Osprey and then Ioan in his Laser Radial

The second race saw a change at the top with Peter and Oscar taking first in the Scorpion, then the first Osprey to cross the line was Ted and Lucas then Sophie in the Radial Dyfan was next in the Aero with Dan and Carwyn coming next in the second Osprey. In the lower half of the fleet came Mike and Deanna in the third Osprey then Ed and Emily in the 500, Richard Johns in a Laser Radial then Jamie and Tim in the last Osprey.

Race three’s first over the line was Peter and Oscar once again in the Scorpion, second Dyfan in the Aero, Richard in a Radial then Ed and Emily in the RS 500. Closely followed by Mike and Deanna, Dan and Carwyn and Ted with Lucas in their Ospreys.

T.S.C. Regatta sponsored by Lewis Lewis and Co

The club’s annual regatta will be held on Saturday the 22nd June and the round Caldey race on Sunday 23rd. The club is proud to announce the continued support and sponsorship from Lewis Lewis & Co Solicitors of Tenby. Lewis Lewis & Co have been there to support the club over the years and it is they who sponsor the team prize so very generously.  There was a good turn out last year with the Tenby Sailors winning the team prize of £500. Let’s hope we keep it on home turf this year.

Nationals

This year we are hosting the 2000 National Championships from the 10th to the 16th of August 2019

We would not be able to put on these events without the help of willing volunteers, so if you would like to help out on all or some of these dates please get in touch. There are positions both on and off the water so no sailing experience is necessary if you would like to volunteer or have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch
