Tenby Sailing club

In Memory

It is with great sadness that I am starting this week’s article with the news of a club member that has passed away. Sally Simmonds who like her father Eric and mother Mary before her were avid sailors and stalwart members of Tenby Sailing Club. Sally who could always be seen out on the water in her yachts first off in Swan Song and then later Accolade, for a smaller lady she handled the large yachts superbly and single handed. She loved the sea and particularly liked the club as after a long day sailing, she would often be found at the end of the bar enjoying a whiskey or two.

Dinghy Racing

The club racing has now ceased until the spring, with the first race of the season will be held on the 31st March with the first cup race on the 7th April.

Junior Sailing

With the new season coming up fast we look forward to welcoming youngsters joining in our Wednesday evening sailing nights.  Although we hope most of our present young members will continue to attend, we can cater for a limited number of new comers each month but first come first served.  Minimum age 8years but older children welcome. An enrolment session will be held on Wed March 20th starting 6 pm with a second chance on Wed March 27th.

Commodores Quiz

Last year the Commodores Quiz started in January and the regular quizzers were asked what charity they wanted to raise money for. The outcome was to raise money for the Tenby Lifeboat. All year we had dedicated teams turn up and compete for the prize and bragging rights of being Tenby Sailing Clubs Quiz Champs, and all the while raising money. Last Sunday saw some representatives of the teams that took part along with the quiz master and Commodore presenting a cheque for £845 to the treasurer of Tenby Lifeboat Wyn Griffiths. The team members were then treated to a guided tour of the boat and boat house.

I would like to personally thank all that took part, from the regular teams, one off teams, the singles and the impromptu visitor winners for the month.

Commodore Nathan Spiller presenting the Commodores Quiz Cheque.

This year we are raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. Due to the location this will also have to be a heated cabinet, the defib will then be listed on the local network and will benefit the wider community and visitors alike as there will be a defib situated on the harbour.

So please come down to the next quiz tomorrow Saturday the 23rd Feb at 1930 (or after the Rugby) to have a bit of fun while raising money for our Defib. Cost of the entry to the quiz is £5 for a team of up to six people or £1 if you think you can go it alone. There will be a league running for the whole year up to the final in November you don’t have to be part of the league just come for a laugh whilst railing money. Alongside the quiz there will be a raffle, all prize donations will be gratefully received.

Dinghy Racing
Racing on Tuesday the 11th saw five boats out on the water in a bit of wind. Out of those five boats only three Ospreys finished with Dan Jackson coming home first, with Jamie
second and John third. Last Saturday the 15 th saw six intrepid Ospreys brave the windy conditions to complete two races. Fun was had by all and just to top of the excitement there
were a few capsizes that were thrown into the mix which made for leadership challenges. The eventual winner for race one was Dan then followed by Ted and then Jamie with Mike,
John and then Richard closely following. In Race two carried on the drama with only a slight change to the rankings again with Dan, Ted and Mike making up the one, two, three and
Jamie, Richard and John then coming home.


Junior Sailing
Another good session last week in great conditions, most groups concentrated on going around triangular courses which involves all points of sailing, rounding marks, tacking and gybing. There is just one sailing session left next wed with an end of season party on wed Oct 10 th . Many thanks to all the volunteers who have helped to run the 26 sessions involving training a total of 50 youngsters in 25 club dinghies and 5 safety boats on the water. And in other news 7 Tenby sailing club junior members attended the PPSA training day last Saturday with a CYRC junior racing event on Sunday. This is a first for some of them as they normally only sail on home waters.
The CYRC racing was delayed due to strong winds but racing got under way later. In the Topper training fleet jasmine HAIGH was 4th. In the general handicap Ioan Thompson was 2nd in a laser radial, Oscar Thompson and Iolo Shaw were 3rd in a Feva, Osian Bhatterchergie and Daniel De Kroon were 9th in a Feva. Scarlett Jackson also took part in a training day. A very promising turnout by our juniors not forgetting the efforts of the parents getting them there.
Next CYRC is at Dale on Saturday 22nd

Dinghy Racing

Racing on Tues 21st saw five boats on the water, three Ospreys one Redwing and an RS 200. The race was held in a moderate wind and in the rain, not that it matters much as you get wet before you start anyway. The top three places were taken up by the Ospreys 1st was Ted then closely followed by Jamie and then Daniel with the Rs helmed by Richard and then Bills Redwing following. Last Saturday 25th Was a generous amount of wind for the two races that were being held out in the bay. Taking part was a flotilla of 6 Ospreys. The first race was won by Dan closely followed by Ted. The second race was again won by Dan followed by Ted then Mike in 3rd place. Then on the Sunday with a lovely breeze the Osprey fleet took to the water for another two races back to back. It was a familiar one two with Daniel and Ted coming first and second respectively in both races. With Mike coming third in race one and Jamie coming fourth, John fifth and Richard sixth. In race two third was John fourth Mike and fifth Richard after Jamie being forced to retire.

Cruiser Racing

Another good turn out with 5 boats taking part.  The wind was just north of West force 3 to 4. The race officer Blake set a long course around the Woolhouse and DZ2 buoys. Blake in Slipstream had the best start and led the starboard broad reach with Spinnakers to the Woolhouse buoy. The broad reach on Port to DZ2 also allowed Spinnakers and Steve in Aries closed up on Slipstream and rounded the Buoy just ahead.  However, Slipstream did a better rounding and slipped past to leeward on a port tack. Unfortunately for Slipstream port tack towards Monkstone proved to be the wrong option with following boats realising that tacking onto Starboard toward Caldey was better. So it proved with Denny Young in Heather and Phil Rees in Accolade taking advantage of knowledge of tide and wind and Phil recording his first win, Denny second, Aries third, Tony and Billy in Apatshe 4th and Slipstream 5th. Well done Phil!

Next race Sunday at 1015 am.

Junior Sailing

Last Wednesday about 20 youngsters ignored the fine drizzle to enjoy a flat sea, tide in and force 2 to 4 wind.  Parents and helpers returned to the Club to dry out and for the excellent food provided by the chefs Dai and Phil. It was good to see so many of the junior section returning after their holidays.  Sessions will continue every Wednesday until the end of September with a junior end of season party on Wed Oct 10th.

Helpers Party

As a big thank you to all the people who helped make this years Tenby Regatta and Scorpions Nationals a great success, there will be a Bangers and Mash helper’s party at the club on Saturday 15th Sept from 1900. Food will be laid on for all who helped out anyone else wishing to come to the party the cost of the food will be £6.00pp. It is an opportunity for all to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all the helpers many of whom gave up their precious time and holidays to help out the club and without them staging any event would be impossible.

Tenby Lugger

Last Saturday saw the arrival of the new Tenby Lugger made from scratch by the Maritime Heritage Society based in Pembroke Dock. She was parked outside the Sailing club where she was named and blessed. I (The Commodore) got to join the crew from Caldey to Tenby, it was an absolute privilege to be able to sail her over from Caldey and also have a turn in rowing her part way into the harbour.

Commodores Quiz

Six teams took part this month, five of which are the regular quizzers that are part of the league building up their points to the grand final in November. The other was Team Heritage made up from the crew of the Tenby Lugger. There was another change at the top on the day with The Looser (contradiction in terms) being the winners. Very closely followed by the Dashers and then the Cola Clan, with the Four amigos the Lone Dogs and finally Heritage bringing up the rear. The next quiz will be held at the sailing club this Saturday the 29th Sept all are welcome to take part. We are raising money for the RNLI and as you know this is a very worthy cause. The cost is £5 for a team of up to six people or £1 if you think you can go it alone. There is also a raffle running alongside the quiz at £1 a square. So, if you think you are the brains of Tenby or just want to come down and have a laugh while raising money for the RNLI it will start at 1930.

Fri 26th Oct Pickle Night. Why Pickle Night?? Slowly the news of Lord Nelson’s death began to spread. It reached Gibraltar on the 24th Oct 1805, and the Gibraltar Chronical rushed out a special edition, which contained a letter Vice Admiral Collingwood had written to the military Commander-in-Chief, with a French translation for propaganda purposes. It reached England in the early morning of November 4th when the Schooner HMS Pickle encountered the Cornish fishing fleet and hurried the news to Penzance.
