Club Sailing

The final dinghy races of the season took place on tuesday this week, there were 2 races contested by 7 boats in very variable and often challenging wind, waves and rain conditions. The race was run by PRO Ieuan James, he set a port triangle with a good length upwind beat.

The wind for race one was force 3 gusting 4 at times, of the 7 boats in the first race 6 of them decided to start on the starboard end of the line, while Dibby in the RS600 as usual went for a port end flyer. But at the port end Dibby was met by the ospreys of Jamie and Carwyn, who were both protesting loudly about this incursion by the rs600 onto the starting mark. The race was hard fought between the Osprey of Jamie and peter in the scorpion, with many changes of places take place throughout the race. The first leg was a beat upwind to the mark which could be achieved on one tack, but proved faster to go low and tack on the lay of the mark. The second leg was a reach, just too tight to successfully fly the spinnakers as the ospreys found out by the second lap. The final leg was almost dead downwind back to the leeward mark, most of the racers managed the gybe successfully with just a few wet moments for a couple of the laser sailors. The first race was won by Peter then Ben in a laser with Jamie in 3rd, Dibby in his Rs600 retired after hitting the start mark.

The second race started with very light winds, which indicated to most of the sailor that there was a big shift in the wind on its way, the second race start was more relaxed with just a couple of boats drifting over before the starting horn had sounded. But very quickly the force 1 breeze had built into a force 4 gusting 5 and by the time the competitors had rounded the windward mark a squall had moved in providing challenging reaching condition with the two handed boats opting not to fly their kites. The changeable conditions continued over the 5 laps of the second race, with Peter once again taking first place, followed by the Rs600 and Ben in third.

These final races conclude the 2017 TSC frostbite series, with the new spring series starting April 2018. 

Forthcoming events.

To round out the year, the club is hosting a NYE party with food provided for members and available at a cost for non members. During the evening there will be a wine raffle (donations gratefully received), dancing and a curry after the midnight countdown in Tudor Square. All members and non members are welcome to celebrate another successful year for TSC.

Message From The Commodore
On behalf of myself the flag officers and committee of Tenby Sailing Club wish you all a
happy and prosperous New Year. 2018 promises to be another busy year for the club. We will
have our usual sailing calendar through the year including our regatta and this year we will
play host to the Scorpion class of dinghy who are coming to Tenby for their National
Championships.


As well as the sailing we are going to have a full and varied social program, this will include
a monthly Commodores Quiz, so if you think you and your team could be the brains of Tenby
come down the club and take on the challenge, watch this space for details. The club room
had a major facelift in 2017 bringing the bar area up to date but still keeping the welcoming
charm the sailing club prides itself on. Although we are open to the general public becoming
a member of Tenby Sailing Club brings benefits that are not available to anyone else.
Membership forms can be downloaded from our website www.tenbysailingclub.org.uk the
full list of benefits can also be found below, there is no better place to relax and have a drink
while watching the sunset over the harbour. The club is currently in the process of installing a
new caterer and we hope that they will be in place very soon so we can hit the new season
with a menu to whet all appetites. For any questions or information details of email addresses
can be found on the website please do not hesitate to ask.
Hope to see you down the club in 2018


Nathan Spiller
Commodore T.S.C​​
