Tenby Sailing club

Dinghy Racing

Racing took place last Tues the 30th July out in the bay with a somewhat lively wind, which intern forced a reef or two. Three intrepid bats and their sailors took to the water sailing with alacrity and gusto. The eventual winners were Dan and Chris in and Osprey with Jamie and Dave in second also in an Osprey. Third was James in a laser that although reefed had a terrific race, and there was only just over a minute separating the racers.

On Sunday the 04th August saw a somewhat depleted fleet take to the water, the reason for the reduced number was that some of Tenby’s Osprey fleet have gone to that there England for the class nationals. Still it gave the sailors left behind to get some points in to go up the rankings. In race one Peter and Oscar came top of the shop in the Scorpion, in second was Dyfan in his Aero 7, in third was Ted and Lucas with John and Richard in fourth all in Ospreys. Race two saw the same results however in race three there was a slight change. There was no difference at the top with the Scorpion of Peter and Oscar coming in first, but in second was Ted and Lucas in an Osprey with Dyfan in third with the Aero with John and Richard in fourth in the second of the Ospreys.

Cruiser Racing

With very light winds a course was set around some nearby pot buoys left kindly by some fishermen.

 The first leg was a starboard reach.  Blake in Slipstream got away first but Denny in Heather, Roy in Chiron and Steve in Aries were just behind. Aries was just in front for the gybe around the first mark onto a very broad port reach. Aries hoisted a spinnaker and pulled away slowly with other 3 neck and neck behind. Aries rounded on to the beat back to the finish at the Harbour and crossed the line first.  Slipstream and heather crossed the line together with Chiron close behind. Final result on handicap was Aries 1st the, Heather, Slipstream, Chiron.

Next race Sat 17 Aug at 18.30 after the Championship week 

Junior Sailing 

There will be no junior sailing next week Wed 14th.   The races for Championship week (Aug 11th to 16th) will normally start about 11.30am every day from Sunday to Friday except Wednesday as if all goes to plan it will be a lay day. Come and watch and even pick up some tips from some seasoned sailors.

Commodores Quiz

This year we are raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. Due to the location this will also have to be a heated cabinet, the defib will then be listed on the local network and will benefit the wider community and visitors alike as there will be a defib situated on the harbour. Due to the location the defib box will have to be a heated one for obvious reasons, and they carry the cost of £1300 complete.

The next quiz (although a break from tradition) will be held Fri 30th August at 1930 so come down the club and have a bit of fun while raising money for our Defib. Cost of the entry to the quiz is £5 for a team of up to six people or £1 if you think you can go it alone. There will be a league running for the whole year up to the final in November, you don’t have to be part of the league just come for a laugh whilst raising money. Alongside the quiz there will be a raffle, all prize donations will be gratefully received.

Some classes of boat may be single handed but a lot more boats come down, others are the double handers, and not so much of a big fleet but very family orientated so two families would be around the town waiting for the racing to finish.

Dinghy Racing

Tues the 23rd greeted he fleet of eight racers with a lovely evening in the bay, five out of the eight boats were the clubs dedicated Osprey fleet. The others are the ones that get them worried when they work out the handicap system. The results for the race are as follows, in first place was Dan and Chris in and Osprey and in second was the classically built Redwing sailed by Bill and Peter. In third was the Osprey of Ted and Lucas with a Laser sailed by Ben in fourth. In fifth and sixth were another two Ospreys sailed by Mike and Deanna, John and Richard respectively. Next over the line in seventh was Dyfan in the RS Aero 7 and then in eighth the last of the Ospreys helmed by Carwyn.

Five boats took to the water sailing two races, race one’s results were in first place Dan and Jamie in an Osprey with Mike and Deanna in second also in an Osprey. In third was the Scorpion sailed by Peter and Oscar with the Phantom of Ted coming in fourth, last but not least in fifth was John and Richard in the last of the Ospreys.

Cruiser Racing

Almost perfect conditions, sunny force 3 to 4, NNW attracted 6 boats the best of the season.

 

Unfortunately neap tides do not allow much floating time and a relatively short course was set around Giltar and North high cliff buoys to port. Blake in Slipstream started on starboard and led with a dead run through the Skirs. In hot pursuit was Steve in Aries followed by Billy and Tony in Apatshe, Phil in Accolade, Roy in Chiron and Denny in Heather. Slipstream maintained the lead to the Giltar mark and gybed to start the reach back to north high Cliff.  Aries was slowly closing up and just passed |Slipstream to round the mark ahead. The long beat to windward back to the harbour followed.  

All 6 boats chose different routes some with many tacks and Aries just with one long leg on port and one on starboard. Only seconds separated the fleet on handicap with Slipstream gaining line honours and first place, Aries second, Chiron 3rd, heather 4th, Apatshe 5th, Accolade 6th.

 

Next race tonight, Friday at 6pm.

Dinghy Racing

Tues 9th saw eleven boats out on the water in a lovely wind and even the sun was out which made for a pleasant evening racing. This week there was a mixed fleet of all sized boats and abilities which is always pleasing to see. The results were as follows, in first place was Dan and Chris in the Osprey and in second Mike and Deanna also in an Osprey. In third saw Peter in a Phantom come across the line closely followed by Ted and Lucas in their Osprey finishing in fourth. In fifth was Ioan who continually moves up the fleet in sixth Huw and Carwyn in another Osprey, next came Dyfan in his Aero 7 with Bill and Pater coming in eighth in the classically built Redwing. In ninth saw Martyn and Evan the RS 200 cross the line closely followed by James in a laser and in eleventh place John crossed the line in a Comet.

Sunday the 14th had the fleet out in the bay racing in a rather sedate manner. With the wind for ever dropping they still managed to get two races in, the eventual results are as follows. In first place in race one was Mike and Deanna in second Ted and Lucas in third was Dan and Chris all sailing Ospreys. Next in fourth was Dyfan in the RS Aero 7 then John and Geoff in another Osprey coming in fifth then over the line was Oscar in a laser 4.7. in the second race it was a change at the top with Dyfan first in the Aero then in second third and fourth was Make and Deanna, Dan and Chris then John and Geoff respectively. Let’s hope for a bit more wind next week.

Dinghy Racing

Tues 2nd saw a pleasing twelve boat fleet take to the bay, the wind was just about perfect with all sailors enjoying themselves, even the ones that capsized. The course was ably set by the P.R.O of the day Lewis James who along with time keeping, lap counting and rescuing did a sterling job. The results are as follows in first place was Dan and ?? in the first of an Osprey 1,2,3,4. Second was Ted and Lucas with Mike and Deanna in third, fourth saw Jamie and Dave cross the line. In fifth was Peter and Ben in the Scorpion closely followed by Ioan in a laser. In seventh was the RS Aero 7 of Dyfan and in eighth place was Huw and ?? in an Osprey. Next in ninth place was the classic wooden Redwing of Bill and Peter and in tenth was James May in a Laser. In eleventh came John and Richard in the last of the Ospreys then in twelfth was Richard in a Laser.

Due to there being absolutely no wind last Sunday the Race or what would have been a synchronised drift was cancelled. 

Cruiser Racing

The cruiser race last Thursday the 4th was from Tenby around the pontoons at Saundersfoot and back.

The 4 boats crossed the starting line together on a close reach to Monkstone. They were all still together at Monkstone but Blake in Slipstream chose a more seaward course in the hope of more wind. The pontoons were upwind well into Saundersfoot bay but difficult to see. The result was Slipstream and Roy in Chiron over stood while Phil in Accolade and Denny in Heather tacked too soon and suffered with a foul tide. Chiron rounded the pontoons first followed by Slipstream.

Slipstream hoisted their spinnaker and closed up on Chiron and was alongside them at Monkstone. However, Chiron stayed just ahead and was first on handicap.  Heather came 3rd and accolade 4th.

We look forward to Apatshe joining us in the next race which is on Sunday 14th July at 15.30.
