SOLO sailor doubles up for Marathon cycle

Tony Harding, one of our long standing members, can normally be found travelling Solo –  that is on his SOLO dinghy, but for this adventure he has decided to double up and cycle the equivalent of John O Groats to Lands End, with his wife, Jenny.

The marathon ride is taking place within the four walls of their garden shed, during lock down, in order to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The epic 951 mile ride is in honour of Tony’s cousin, David, who died a year ago and also remembering other family members who have suffered from Cancer.  

Between them Tony and Jenny are covering 70 miles a day and already have raised over £1,000. You can add to their total by visiting http://www.tonyandjenny.co.uk/

Sunday autumn race series gets under way

The day started with a light south easterly breeze and slowly rose and headed to the south during the day.

The Autumn series finally started after there were no takers in the wind and rain last week.  Thanks goes to Hannah Bloor for standing in as R.O. for the day.  The warm conditions were enjoyed by those helms taking part.

Congratulations to Dan Langdon, who won both the morning and afternoon Summer Series.

Evening sunshine and breezes

It was a beautiful sunny Wednesday evening with the north-easterly breeze holding for the duration of the race.  Many of the usual helms were notable for their absence, and missed an enjoyable sail. With just two more Wednesdays left, and discards making a difference, there’s everything to play for.

Sunday Spring Series ends

A sunny day with light and variable north/north westerly breeze that built to a nice fresh breeze after the second race had finished.  There were eight starters for both races, but the second race saw a marked split of the front four from the rest of the fleet on the second lap.

Congratulations to Martin and Lynn Harland, who win the morning and afternoon series.

The Summer Series starts next Sunday.

It’s all about the shifts

A sunny Sunday with light, variable and shifty wind.  Well done to the Comet Trio of Lynn and Martin Harland sailed a ‘horizon’ job on the rest of the fleet, who suffered the ups and downs of the shifts, to take the lesser positions in both races.

Wednesday and Sunday results now up to date

First Sunday racing

The first of the Spring Series finally started on the 8th April with a light to moderate north westerly breeze. There was some confusion during the morning race so, for fairness, the results are calculated for the first two laps.

Results can be found under the ‘Racing’ tab.
