Weekly sailing report w/e 21 August 2015

Club Sailing. Two evening races last Saturday were enjoyed by five Ospreys and an RS200. The sunny evening with a force two to three westerly provided ideal conditions. In the first race the Alistairs took an early lead whilst other Ospreys tried, and failed, to fly spinnakers on a leg that was really much too tight. They failed to keep that lead for long though, in a race that saw much place changing over five triangular laps. In the end it was won by Mike/Deanna from Ted/Gillan then Paul/Anthea. A second windward leeward race followed immediately. This rather shorter race was taken by Ted/Gillan who lead from start to finish, followed by Mike/Deanna then Paul/Anthea. On Tuesday evening Paul and Julia ran the evening race; three Ospreys, a Redwing and an RS200 came to the line. At the windward mark Ted/Lucas capsized failing to get across the boat quickly enough. Mike/Deanna and Peter/Katie sailed away chuckling! A quick recovery and hot pursuit by Ted/Lucas saw them catch but not pass the other two, and that was the finishing order with the Redwing of Bill/Nan bringing up the rear.

RS400 National Championship. A successful and widely praised week of intense competition with boisterous socials was enjoyed by the 46 teams entered for this event. The harbour and club were buzzing with activity from Saturday through to Friday as competitors and their families enjoyed our holiday town. On the water a variety of conditions mostly with winds from the south west made for very competitive sailing, with two races on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday the sun shone but the wind failed to blow so racing was cancelled; on Thursday the wind came in from the North east enabling three races to take place. In this competitive fleet no boat dominated with many different podium places in each race. Once all results were taken into account Mike Simms and Richard Brown from Carsington Sailing Club were crowned Champions.

Sponsorship. The Club is pleased to have received sponsorship from Valero again this year. As with many voluntary clubs overheads are increasingly difficult to handle and this generous sponsorship will help towards the clubs expenses in maintaining a thriving club in our holiday town. The club provides opportunities for local youngsters to learn to sail, runs an annual National Championship bringing many visitors and publicity to the town, as well as providing dinghy and cruiser racing for members throughout the summer. Many thanks to Valero for their contribution helping to ensure the continuation of these activities.

Cruiser racing  A starboard course was set with a reach to North high Cliff, beat to Eel point off Caldey , and a broad reach back to Tenby. With only a force 2 to 3 wind playing the tides was all important. Roy Lawrence in Astra was making his maiden voyage of the season and had a poor start about 3 minutes behind at North high Cliff.   However by tacking back to South beach Astra rounded Eel point ahead of Steve Lewis in Aries and Blake Shaw in Slipstream who had gone down the sound on the Caldey side. There was a very close race back to Tenby with boats neck and neck rounding Skir rock against the tide. Slipstream just managed to win on corrected time with Astra second and Aries third, just a few seconds separating the boats. 

Junior sailing  Junior sailing will continue on Wednesday evenings until end of September. Please turn up around 5pm. Space for a few newcomers. Ring Blake on 07717842713 for more information.

 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.
