Weekly sailing report w/e 03 July 2015

Club Sailing. Tuesdays race last week attracted five Ospreys for a very pleasant race on a warm sunny evening with a force 2 westerly breeze. Jon Nuttal, on his maiden  appearance as race officer, set a smallish triangular course with an upwind start towards the lifeboat house, left at the windward mark towards the eastern and left again there back to the start. All boats were away promptly on starboard, then crossing tacks on the way to the windward mark. Ted/Lucas reached this just ahead of Jaime/Griff and they sailed away to take the win followed by Jaime/Griff then Peter/Katie.

On Saturday eleven boats turned up; six Ospreys, three club Lasers, a Phatom and an RS600 enjoyed two races run by Bill Dowell. The first race over a triangular course saw Ted/Gillan in an Osprey over the line at the start and Dan in the RS600 infringing and doing two penalty turns. Eventually the whole fleet was going in the right direction in a mid strength westerly. The Ospreys lead the charge with Mike/Deanna in front, but close racing and much place changing, helped by frequent lifts and headers up wind. The RS600 recovered from its start and established a good enough lead to take the race on corrected time, followed by Jon in his Phantom then Ted/Gillan in their Osprey. The second race was windward/leeward and less controversial at the start. All away without incident; Ted/Gillan first to the windward mark where Dan, RS600, capsized then retired. Jon in the Phantom keeping up well with the Ospreys was in close contention as were the other Ospreys once again with much place changing over four laps. At the end Jon took the race followed by Ted/Gillan then Mike/Deanna. Alistair Mackay and Alastair Knibb, fresh from their success round Caldey, found sterner opposition this week, and could only manage two fourth places! Most enjoyable racing with competitive class racing for the Ospreys, and the best turnout of the year so far.

Tuesday this week again saw five Ospreys on the water with Dan in his RS600 and Richard in a club Laser. It was a weird evening with no wind prior to the race and no wind immediately after, but reasonable easterly for the race itself. Paul and Julia set a smallish triangular course; Dan got away first and sailed away to take the win. Behind him the Ospreys tussled; Mike/Deanna got to the windward mark behind Ted/Lucas, but smart spinnaker work enabled them to pass and they took second from Ted/Lucas.

Junior sailing. The club is hosting the travelling Club Youth Racing Circuit (CYRC) this weekend. A strong turnout is anticipated featuring many Tenby youngsters. Lets hope the weather plays its part.

Food at the Club.The Committee is pleased to announce that food is now available at the Club on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
