Weekly Report 10-11-2016

Club Sailing

A bright and sunny Sunday morning with a cold northerly blowing, forecast to get rather strong, and temperatures not much above freezing particularly with the wind chill, saw a very limited turnout for the latest in the clubs winter series. Only Ted/Lucas in their Osprey and the Cherub of Carwyn and Igor took to the water to contest the two races. The Osprey revelled in the conditions but, as the wind increased the Cherub found it increasingly hard going. The autumn sunshine helped and, if upright, helped keep everyone warm. It was an Osprey Cherub one two in both the races (run by Jaime) before heading to the shore just as the wind piped up to the forecast 20+ mph.

Junior report 

A great spooky evening was enjoyed by all who attended the Junior (and parents) get together last Wednesday. A slightly late Halloween party was organised last minute due to many of the youngsters being away for half term. There was suitable scary food, decorations and film to entertain everyone. A popcorn machine was well received.  Thanks to all for organising. 

Next meeting will be the junior party on Friday Dec 9th at 7pm. 

Winter series

The club`s dinghy winter series started on the first Sunday in October and will continue, weather permitting, until Boxing Day. There will be two races back to back on each Sunday morning starting at 11.00am. Sailors from other clubs are invited.
