Weekly sailing report w/e 21 November 2014

A stiff breeze that eased somewhat as the races wore on, together with choppy seas under a leaden sky, greeted the three intrepid crews that set forth on Sunday morning. Race officer Paul Evenden and rib driver Ieuan James set a triangular course with near perfect reaching angles (according to the RO!) for the two races run back to back.
In the first race, the RS200 of Dan Jackson and Connor Keohane was first over the line and soon built a lead on the Osprey of Jaime Bohata; meanwhile Danny in his Streaker took a conservative starting approach, mooring up to the start mark for a few moments whilst he gauged the best route up the beat for his attack on the lead. The reaching angles meant that Dan and Connor in the asymetric boat, spinnaker up, soon built a commanding lead on the Osprey that chose not to fly their spinnaker. Danny was plugging away until a collision with a partially submerged floating object tore his rudder from its mountings and put paid to his chances.
He was towed in by the safety rib with a little difficulty, due to some of his boats buoyancy tanks filling with water, through the holes left by the damaged rudder mountings.
Whilst the towing operation went on and the sun came out, a second race was underway, once again won by Dan and Connor after a capsize caused by a tangled main sheet bridle put paid to Jaime's chances.

Winter Series
Racing will continue until Boxing Day, weather permitting with two races on Sunday mornings. Any dinghy sailors out there looking for some racing are welcome to attend. Membership taken out now will include all of next year too, so the winter racing will effectively be free.

Blues Night. Saturday nights Tenby Blues weekend performance of the five piece band 'Cottonmouth' at the club was, once again, a roaring success with the club crammed to capacity. Many thanks to the organisers, all that attended and especially Mr Terry Evans and Mr John Akrill for stepping into the breach and running the bar at the last minute, after Mike Stace was taken ill. Mike is now recovering and assures us he will back on the water and winning races again very soon.
