Weekly sailing report w/e 31 July 2015

Club Sailing. Saturday evening was bright dry and sunny with a westerly breeze that went south west during the course of racing. Two races were run both over triangular courses by Paul Redford. Four Ospreys, an RS200 a Phantom and a Laser came to the line for the start of the first race which was well out to sea towards Monkstone. Upwind from there towards north beach, left there and out to the gybe at the eastern, then back to the start. It was quickly apparent that the wind was erratic and wildly variable; quite light in the north bay but strong in the south, and the gybe mark was in the south. The erratic wind made use of the large Osprey spinnakers very difficult and they suffered as a result; the RS200 and Phantom had no such difficulties and Steve/Jas, RS200, and Jon, Phantom, handled the conditions well to take first and second; behind them Alistair and daughter Catherine were looking good until they capsized at the gybe, joining Hanna and her upside down Laser, and enabling Ted and Richard to sail on and take third. By the time of the second race the wind had settled and eased. Osprey spinnakers were evident but it didn`t change much! Steve/Jas in the RS200 took the win, this time from Ted/Richard in second and Jon in his Phantom third.

Junior training report. The last few weeks have provided some testing conditions especially for the beginners. By finding a more sheltered part of the bay and having just 2 or 3 sailing at a time all are managing to conquer their fears and are actually finding that sailing is more fun when the winds are stronger. Last week Howards advanced group made it to Caldey Island which I think is a first for the evening training. Training will continue throughout the school holidays with the exception of Wed Aug 12th due to the Club staging the RS 400 nationals that week. 

Cruiser racing Yet another race cancelled on Sunday due to the gales. Next scheduled race is 6.30pm tomorrow Saturday evening. Let’s hope for a good turnout if the weather is ok.

RS400 National Championship. This major event in the club`s summer is scheduled for 8th to 13th August. Volunteers are required both on and off the water. If you can spare some time and want to be involved please contact Mark Dashfield on 07971 474517. There will be a meeting for all volunteers at the club on Tuesday 4th August at 8pm. Please make every effort to attend.

Food at the Club and opening hours. The Club is open from noon every day during the summer. Food out of the kitchen is proving popular. If you haven`t visited yet, get on down there! Open to all until 7pm after which its members only. Discount for members on both food and drink.

Saturday Sailing Saturday afternoon free sailing now on every Saturday under the watchful eye of Mark Dashfield. The idea is that new sailors, inexperienced, or those simply wanting to be on the water can practice in an informal setting but with a safety boat present and advice as required. Club members have the choice of a range of club boats at no charge, for them to polish their sailing skills. Saturday sessions will continue each Saturday from 1.30 pm, followed by racing at 5pm for those who wish to take part. Please contact Mark Dashfield on 07971474517 if interested.
