Weekly Report 26/07/19

Dinghy Racing

Tues the 16th saw a steady wind blowing across the bay although there could have been a little more. 9 boats took to the water on a lovely sunny and warm evening with the tide in, so not much walking up and down the beach. The results for the evening are as follows. In first place was Dan and Chris second Mike and Deanna and in third Ted and Lucas all in Ospreys. In fourth was the Scorpion of Peter and Ben then in fifth Jamie and Ioan in another Osprey. Next in sixth was Dyfan in his RS Aero 7 then in seventh Bill and Peter in the Redwing. Then in Eighth was the RS 200 sailed by Martyn and Evan then in ninth John and Richard in the last of the Ospreys.

Sunday the 14th greeted the fleet of nine boats with a good steady wind that allowed very close sailing, everyone enjoyed the course set by the PRO Lewis James for a two-race day. In first place was Peter and Ben in the Scorpion then the next three boats in were all Ospreys sailed by Dan and Jamie, Ted and Lucas then Mike and Deanna respectively. In Fifth saw the first of two Lasers sailed by Ben and in Sixth James. Seventh Place went to the RS 200 sailed by Martyn and Evan then next over the live was the Osprey of John and Geoff in eighth. Last but not least there was Richard who was out in a Laser Radial but unfortunately picked up a small injury (old war wound) and did not finish the first race and had to retreat to the bar.

In race two there was no change at the top with the Scorpion of Peter and Ben coming in first then the first of the Ospreys sailed by Dan and Jamie. Then there was a small switch from race one with Mike and Deanna coming in third with Ted and Lucas in fourth. Then fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth remained the same with ben and James both sailing Lasers then the RS200 of Martyn and Evan and finally John and Geoff in an Osprey.

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 (although a break from tradition) will be held today FRI 26th July at 1930 so 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.
