Weekly Report 12/07/19

Dinghy Racing

Tues 2nd saw a pleasing twelve boat fleet take to the bay, the wind was just about perfect with all sailors enjoying themselves, even the ones that capsized. The course was ably set by the P.R.O of the day Lewis James who along with time keeping, lap counting and rescuing did a sterling job. The results are as follows in first place was Dan and ?? in the first of an Osprey 1,2,3,4. Second was Ted and Lucas with Mike and Deanna in third, fourth saw Jamie and Dave cross the line. In fifth was Peter and Ben in the Scorpion closely followed by Ioan in a laser. In seventh was the RS Aero 7 of Dyfan and in eighth place was Huw and ?? in an Osprey. Next in ninth place was the classic wooden Redwing of Bill and Peter and in tenth was James May in a Laser. In eleventh came John and Richard in the last of the Ospreys then in twelfth was Richard in a Laser.

Due to there being absolutely no wind last Sunday the Race or what would have been a synchronised drift was cancelled. 

Cruiser Racing

The cruiser race last Thursday the 4th was from Tenby around the pontoons at Saundersfoot and back.

The 4 boats crossed the starting line together on a close reach to Monkstone. They were all still together at Monkstone but Blake in Slipstream chose a more seaward course in the hope of more wind. The pontoons were upwind well into Saundersfoot bay but difficult to see. The result was Slipstream and Roy in Chiron over stood while Phil in Accolade and Denny in Heather tacked too soon and suffered with a foul tide. Chiron rounded the pontoons first followed by Slipstream.

Slipstream hoisted their spinnaker and closed up on Chiron and was alongside them at Monkstone. However, Chiron stayed just ahead and was first on handicap.  Heather came 3rd and accolade 4th.

We look forward to Apatshe joining us in the next race which is on Sunday 14th July at 15.30.

Commodores Quiz

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. Due to the location the defib box will have to be a heated one for obvious reasons, and they carry the cost of £1300 complete.

The next quiz will be held on FRI 26th July at 1930 so make it a date in your diary and come down the club and 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 raising money. Alongside the quiz there will be a raffle, all prize donations will be gratefully received.
