Club Sailing
Saturday`s two races run by Alastair Knibb drew a fleet of five boats on a cloudy but dry
evening with a mid range north westerly blowing. The Osprey of Ted/Lucas won both, in the
first followed by juniors Ioan and Oscar in a Feva then Mike/Deanna in a Redwing and Igor
in a Laser. In the second race Mike/Deanna were second from Ioan/Oscar, Igor then Alex in
his Redwing
Six boats turned out for Tuesday evening`s race on a sunny and bright August evening. A
declining south westerly breeze provided an upwind leg towards Giltar, a reach towards the
Eastern and back to the start. The Scorpion of Peter/Igor picked the shifts well and took the
race on corrected time, from the Osprey of Ted and guest crew Jo and then the RS200 of
Dan/Scarlett followed by Mike/Deanna in their Redwing, Richard in a club Laser and John in
the Comet.


Junior sailing   
Junior training as usual next week but please note no training on Wednesday Aug 23 rd  due to
the RS200 championships at Tenby.  Training as usual in September. 
Last week there were light winds very suitable for the beginners. The more experienced were
given a supervised sail to Monkstone. All returned to enjoy the BBQ this week provided by
Erik.  Many thanks for stepping in for the job. 


Cruiser racing.
The weather last Friday evening resulted in a prolonged discussion but eventually it was
decided to go ahead despite the strong winds and light rain. This proved to be a bad decision
for the crew of Slipstream who ended up having an unplanned swim just off the Mayor`s
Slip.  No harm done except to hope there were no videos or CCTV to record the incident. 
The other competitors wisely decided to jump ship and cancel the race. 
Next race Saturday (19th) at 15.15.  See you there all dried out!

Club Sailing
Saturday`s three races for the August cup saw a fleet of five boats, depleted by holidays and
other absences, come to the line in a brisk and gusty northerly. Events were dominated by Jon
in his Phantom who won all the races and hence the August cup. Behind him Mike and
Deanna in their Redwing took three second places, despite approaching the windward mark
from the wrong side in the second race, thereby giving the Phantom something to think
about! Richard in a club Laser was demolished at the gybe mark by one of the tasty gusts that
characterised the day. Dyfan and Steve, in the only Osprey competing, didn`t bother with the
last race and were last seen heading for Caldey. Martin, in his new Laser, was on curfew and
had to go home half way!
Tuesday evening`s race drew nine boats to the start on a bright but cloudy evening with a
gusty shifty northerly breeze. The upwind start saw the fleet cross the bay from south to north
with the windward mark off Waterwynch. The Osprey of Ted/Lucas was first to the
windward mark and extended their lead over following laps, hotly pursued by the slower
Phantom, Scorpion and RS200. Also on the course were a Redwing, couple of Lasers and a
Comet. Unfortunately corrected time results are not presently available so outcome unknown!


Junior sailing   
At a recent racing session conditions were a bit testing with a good force 4.   Close races
though with excellent starts and close racing throughout and no capsizing! Excellent
improvements all-round.  Well done.


Race 1
Oscar Thompson and Luke Subbiani-Shaw    Feva         1st
James Goodwin-Close                                Laser        2nd
Osian Bhattacherjee                                   Topper     3rd


Race 2
James Goodwin-Close                                Laser        1st
Oscar Thompson and Luke Subbiani-Shaw    Feva         2nd
Osian Bhattacherjee                                   Topper     3 rd  


For the last 2 weeks only the most experienced ventured out under sail and had a session of
fast reaching in a force 4 to 5. The stage 3 group were finishing off their shore work while the
rest started with some land drill on use of tiller extension and then enjoyed some time on the
water in the Club Ribs.  Some of the less experienced juniors were taken out in a Miracle
(courtesy of Dan and Jeremy) to introduce them to planing. Junior sailing continues through
out the holidays with the exception of Wed August 30 th  when the Club will be fully occupied
looking after over 200 sailors during the RS 200 national UK Championships.
The sailing starts on Sunday Aug 27 th  and will be every day until Thursday Aug 31 st .

Cruiser racing 
A record 7 cruisers turned out for Sunday morning’s race in a force 4 to 5 SW wind.  A
course was set to give a beat to the Giltar buoy then back to North High Cliff and back to
Tenby. Once again Billy, Tony and Geoff in Apatshe got away on port tack with everyone in
close pursuit although John, Jeff and Roger in Tejeda looked to be overpowered.  Phil in
Accolade managed particularly well in the conditions and was able to handle full sail while
everyone else had to reef. Apatshe rounded the Giltar buoy still ahead with Blake, Jeremy
and Phoebe in Slipstream second.  However Accolade was not far behind.  There was a broad
reach down to NHC with most boats goosewinging followed by another reach back to Tenby.
 Apologies for disturbing the seal on the NHC buoy! 

A very enjoyable race produced the following results with Accolade just missing out on first
place by a few seconds. 1 st , Apatshe, 2 nd  Accolade, 3 rd  Slipstream, 4 th  Steve in Aries, 5 TH  
Tejeda,  6 th  Denny in Heather  and Crispin in Beagle 7 th . 
The race last Saturday was run around Woolhouse Buoy to port then DZ2 to port and back to
Tenby.  It was again closely fought in the excellent conditions. Steve in Aries finished just
ahead of Billy in Apatshe and everyone awaited the handicap calculation which gave Aries
first place by 1 second! Phil in Accolade was 3 rd  and Crispin in Beagle 4 th . 
9 races have now been completed this season and 3 boats tie for first place overall.
Aries, Slipstream, Apatshe.  5 races are left to be sailed.  It`s tight at the top! 
Next race is tonight Friday at 7.15pm.

Club Sailing
Saturday was a lovely summers day but, at race time, no wind, so the two planned races were
cancelled, much to the irritation of the ten boats who had put to sea to sail.
Tuesday evening was another lovely summer`s evening with bright sunshine and a rising
wind from the south west. Again ten boats contested the race run by James over a smallish
triangular course. Three Ospreys, three Lasers, two Redwings, an RS200 and a Comet made
up the fleet. The rising wind and flat sea suited Ted/Lucas in the Osprey and they sailed off to
take the win. Second were Dan/Scarlett in the RS200 then a visiting sailor, Nicholas, in a
Laser Radial winning the battle in the Laser fleet. Mike/Deanna were first Redwing from
Bill/Nan and the minor placings taken by Martin, John then Alex (making his first
appearance in the racing; welcome Alex).


Junior sailing

Over 100 entries so far.  Many helpers needed. 
Then training throughout September.


Cruiser racing 
Great conditions for the Monday evening race which attracted 6 entries. A course was set to
go around Monkstone rounding the Saundersfoot pontoons to port and back. The fleet started
on a close fetch on port but with the tide already starting to ebb Slipstream did a quick hitch
to windward to gain the inside track with possibly less tide inside.  However Apatshe kept a
good line and powered ahead. When boats tacked back onto starboard after passing
Monksone, Crispin in Beagle was ahead with Tony, Billy and Geoff in Apatshe second. 
Blake in Slipstream had closed up on Steve in Aries . However Denny in Heather was always
close by and took an inside course towards the pontoons and rounded only just behind
Slipstream. The other boats could not shake him off and after the long sail back to Tenby
Heather was first on handicap. Positions were  Heather, Apatshe, Slipstream, Aries, Beagle
and then Phil in Accolade.
Next race Sunday at 10.30am. 


Cruise in company
With changeable weather forecast for the day a small but intrepid collection of hardy sailors
made their way out of the harbour at various intervals bound for Skrinkle. Sadly the sea
conditions rendered it impossible to get to the beach in tenders or ribs so the decision was
made to anchor for lunch in Paul Jones' bay on Caldy. Once there the yachts - Apatshe
with Billy and Pat, Tony and Sheila aboard, Aries containing Steve and Caroline, plus Bill
and Nan in their yacht - mostly opted to cook their lunch under the grill rather than on a
barbecue. As the ribs, Black duck crewed by Matt and Ioan and Prestissimo crewed by Paul
and Anthea and their grandchildren Chloe and Alfie, surprisingly don't possess either
onboard cooking facilities or a safe area to light a barbecue without causing considerable and
irreparable damage, they headed for Second Bay, followed shortly by M/V Zulu crewed by
Mike, Deanna, Isaac, Phil and Tracey, whereupon the sun came out and a jolly time was had
by all. All the children explored the rocks and the caves and generally had a great time
playing in and out of the water while Matt and Ioan selflessly consumed any surplus barbecue
food with very little persuasion. Alas the incoming tide put an end to the merriment and,

while Deanna and Tracey chose to swim back to the harbour, one by one both ribs and Zulu
also made their way back. The fun continued all the way back to the harbour as Chloe had
jumped ship into the ringo and enjoyed an exciting and splashy trip back.

Club Sailing
It was a grey evening on Saturday, but after a day of strong winds, the south westerly
blowing at race time had moderated to force three/four for the two planned club races run by
Mike Stace. Six boats competed; two Ospreys, two Lasers, a Cherub and a Comet. The first
race was over a port triangular course from Monkstone upwind towards the Skirs then out to
the Eastern. Ted/Richard in an Osprey were first to the windward mark inches ahead of
Dyfan/Igor also Osprey pursued by the slower single handers. The Cherub had issues and
eventually suffered a broken centre board and retired. After four laps the Ospreys in the same
order took first and second, followes by Dan in a Laser, Harri in a Laser then John in his
Comet. A second windward leeward race followed immediately again won by Ted/Richard
but Dan in Laser second and Dyfan/Igor third.
