Weekly sailing report w/e 18 April 2014

Club SailingClub
Sunday was a lovely sunny day but with a coldish northerly breeze. An encouraging early season turnout of twelve boats contested the two races both run by the Alistairs and their driver Ieuan. The first race was triangular with a start out at the eastern, upwind towards Waterwynch, left there to a gibe mark and then back to the start. As race time approached the wind got lighter and lighter and extremely shifty and patchy. All boats got away promptly except for the Commodore who generously gave everyone a head start by arriving a minute late. That was sporting of him because he still managed to reach the windward mark first. However it was a race for the smaller boats and victory went to Dan and Ruby in their RS200 with Steve and Jasmine also in an RS200 second and Ed and Emily, back racing after a season off, third in their RS500. In fourth was the Osprey of Mike and Deanna ahead of the Commodore, ruing his start line generosity.
A second windward leeward race followed immediately with a rather increased wind although still shifty and patchy. This time with the stronger wind the Ospreys dominated, Ted and Matt, starting well, reached the windward mark first and kept the lead to the end, although hotly pursued by Mike and Deanna who were second. Third was the Osprey of Paul and Steve and the RS boats in the minor placings. Worth noting though, that both RS200s performed penalty turns during the morning after hitting the marks. Keep it up lads!
Also worth noting was the competition in the single handers fleet with John in his Comet, Richard in a Laser and Danny in his Streaker enjoying some close and competitive racing.

Club House keys
For the security and convenience of our members there is now an electronic lock on the outer door of the changing rooms. Keys for the old lock no longer work so members wishing to exchange their key for an electronic fob should contact commodore Paul Evenden or enquire at the bar during opening times.
Some members may have noticed the outer door to the changing rooms has been propped open for the past week. Due to ongoing refurbishment of the public toilets on the slipway to Castle Beach we have agreed temporarily to rent ours to the council, who are providing a twice daily cleaning service.
On the subject of cleaning, the club is in need of a part time cleaner. Any interested parties should contact Paul or Anthea Evenden on 07967000884 or 07810808697 respectively.
