Cold and gusty conditions faced the brave souls who ventured out onto the water for two frostbite races on Sunday morning. The races were run by PRO Jo Musson assisted by Lewis
James, the two races were run over triangular courses which all Tenby sailors are accustom with. Race 1 was a force 2 westerly with force 3 gusts, Peter and Igor in the Scorpion claimed
1st place. They were followed by John Morris in a laser with Dyfan providing good competition in the single handed contingent of the fleet, closing out the 1st race were John and Steve in 4th place in the Osprey. Race 2 was a similar affair with the wind increasing slightly to a force 3 with gusts up to force 4, Once again the race was won by Peter in the Scorpion with a familiar second and third place arrangement of John and Dyfan, Jon and Steve retired from the second race. With the start of December we enter the last month of the frostbite racing series before the winter break, with racing starting again April 2018. The results of the series so far see Peter in the Scorpion in 1st place with Mike Stace in his Osprey 2nd and Dan Jackson a very close 3rd in his Osprey Jennifer.

Club Sailing

A surprisingly warm morning was the setting for the two frostbite races this Sunday. The two races were run by PRO Jaime Bohata assisted by Lewis James and Ioan, the course was set over a port hand triangle. Jaime chose a slightly different course to normal starting at the windward mark with a run down to the gybe mark, followed by a fair reach to the leeward mark, finally a beat back up to the windward mark. This meant it was spinnakers on the start line, which was sure to cause much entertainment on the PRO rib.

Race 1 was a force 2 north westerly with occasional force 3 gusts, 3 boats contested this first race with some fierce racing between the two ospreys. Carwyn and Huw had their first osprey experience as a team, while Peter joined John in his osprey. Over the course of the race there were many changes of places between the two ospreys in what was seemly a tight race, in the end Carwyn crossed the line first followed by John in his osprey a few seconds later. But after the handicaps had been worked out, John Morris in the laser had managed to surpass both ospreys, with the results of race 1 standing with 1st John Morris followed by Carwyn and John. That really does show that match racing another boat without watching the competition is a bad idea.

Race 2 was conducted over the same course with Igor joining in his laser, during the race both ospreys had spinnaker issues with Carwyn getting his sheet caught under his bow. The last leg was very close between all the boats. the ospreys finished within seconds of each other, followed closely by the lasers. But yet again the ospreys couldn't keep pace with John Morris on handicap, the results of race 2 were John M then John and Carwyn in the ospreys followed by Igor in his laser.

Racing continues next week, let's hope we get more close boat on boat action.

The frostbite series continued last sunday morning with two races run by PRO Dan Jackson, both races took place over port triangles. Race 1 was in a light northerly with a heavy right hand shift just after the race had begun. Race 1 was won by Peter in the scorpion followed by Mike then Jaime in their ospreys, they were followed up by Jon in his osprey and Dyfan in his new RS Aero.

Race 2 was a light south easterly with a similar shift to race 1, slightly shorter race of 2 laps won by Peter followed by Mike then Jon with Dyfan in 4th place. Jaime and his crew retired from the race due to prior commitments. 

 Club Dinner

It was a busy week end last week for the Sailing Club. The annual Dinner Dance and prize giving was held on the Friday evening at the Giltar Hotel, Tenby. A gathering of over 80 members enjoyed a convivial evening with a sit down meal, presentations and then dancing. Topped off for the enthusiastic with a late night at the club!  Trophies for the 2017 seasons competitions were presented; in the Cruiser fleet the overall champion was Steve Lewis and his crew in Aries; in the dinghy fleet the overall champions were Peter Rose and Igor Otohal in the Scorpion. Well done to each. Many other trophies were presented for the shorter series/cups including the capsize trophy, which this year was secured by the experienced Blake Shaw and Terry Evans turning over their inflatable on the way out to their cruiser. The first time that trophy has been won by a vessel with no mast!

AGM

The following Saturday saw a group of members enjoying the rugby on the big screen in the club during the afternoon and then the presentation of a cheque to the local Rotary Club as a contribution to their charitable funds.

Later in the evening the Club held its AGM. Nathan Spiller was elected Commodore with various other changes in personnel and newcomers to the Committee with this the club is set for the new year. Among the changes of personnel was Ted Lewis who served as commodore for the last 2 seasons and as press officer for more years than he cares to mention. We thank retiring committee members for their hard work in helping running Tenby Sailing Club.
