|Dinghy Sailing - Small Boats - Big Hearts|
Weekly sailing report w/e 29 July 2016
somewhat depleted fleet took to the water on
with holiday and work commitments taking their toll. The two ospreys
of Mike and Deanna and the Alistairs as well as Richard John in a
laser however had two cracking races on a triangular course set by
the race officers Dan, Ruby and Scarlett Jackson. The races were
closely contested with Mike and Deanna taking the first race and the
Alistairs the second race with Richard third in both.
Junior training Junior training will continue on Wednesday evenings starting 5pm throughout the school holidays with the exception of Wed Aug 10th. Tenby SC is staging the Firefly national Championships from Aug 6th to 12th. Around 70 dinghies will be visiting us for daily racing. However it need not be a week off sailing. We will be running 5 safety boats every day and a Committee boat to start and finish the races. On shore car park management, safety tallies checked etc etc. Anyone wishing to volunteer to help in any way please contact me or Ted Lewis on email@example.com
Beginners Group. Most of the group have completed Stage 1 and are well on their way through stage 2. Please make an effort to turn up even if it looks like being too windy for sailing. Only half the group come down recently on a wet night and missed some of the necessary shore work which will have to be repeated for them. 5 of our youngsters progressed to Assistant Instructor status recently which is a fine achievement. It also means our regular instructors can benefit from expert help on training nights. We provide training from RYA Stage 1 to 4, Advanced sailing, Power Boat 1 and 2 , first Aid , and Instructor training. We are also keen on introducing youngsters to try racing and hopefully join in the Club racing nights on Tuesday and Saturday. All this is done by volunteers and we would like to thank everyone who helps in any way.
