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.

 

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.

Super weather for sailing

 July 2021 – Sailing is back on the agenda!

We are following the latest guidance on how to stay safe through COVID, but happy to say that sailing is a great opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy some welcome exercise in relative safety. Whether you are sailing just for the fun of it, or joining in one of our races, don’t forget your sun cream, and cover up from the Sun. We also recommend plenty of fluids  during this heat wave. Take care, and have fun.

If you just want to potter about and unwind after a busy day in the office, that’s fine. If there is a race going on, just stay clear of the racing line and you will be more than welcome to sail whenever we have safety cover on the water. 

If you are interested in joining us, we would love to hear from you – drop us a line on contact@durleighsc.org and we will get back to you to arrange how we can meet you and get you sailing…. we look forward to meeting you.

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
