Weekly Report 18/08/2017

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!
