ICICLE SERIES 2022

Light south easterly wind for today’s racing and only one race in the rather cool cloudy conditions.

Martin & Lynn came 1st, Dave and his son Zac 2nd, with Andrew & Susie a close 3rd only 6 seconds behind. The rest of the fleet followed with no retirements.




We are getting a good response to this series but it would be great to see even more of you on the water,.

Remember if you want to sail you must be prepared to do a duty.

If you don’t want to sail but would be happy to do RO or SBO we do have some duties to fill.

 

ICICLE Series 2022

 Happy New Year.

The first race of the Icicle series 2022 is next Sunday 9th January.

This event is going ahead but please note the following.

If you wish to participate you must sign up to do a duty ( the rota is in the clubhouse)

Although the clubhouse will be open, because of the current COVID situation we ask that people do not congregate in the clubhouse.

If possible take a lateral flow test and if for any reason you are feeling unwell please do not attend.

Ideally come dressed ready for sailing.

Finally, let’s hope we have a decent turnout and the weather is good.

 

We want your Stamps!, please

As we near the Christmas postal surge, please can you consider saving your used Stamps for us? Our Secretary is collecting them between now and the New Year, to support the RNIB fund raising effort this Christmas. A collecting bag will be placed inside the clubhouse ready for you to deposit your stamps and help this great cause….. THANK YOU! 

Comet race day

We had 5 Comet Trios competing in 2 races, the weather was good apart from a heavy shower during the1st race.

Mike & Steve were the overall winners with Dave & Issac coming second,  closely followed by Steve & Sue in third.

Race officer Jon did the presentation, a bottle of wine for the winners and chocolates for second place. This was followed by tea and cake for all.

Big rabbit chase

It was a well attended day for our pursuit race in memory of Richard Lovelace.

The conditions were ideal, warm with enough wind to make the sailing enjoyable .

This was followed by a lovely barbecue plus drinks and deserts.

A big thanks to Nick, Steve and all those who made this event a great success.
