T.S.C. Regatta sponsored by Lewis Lewis and Co

What a weekend we had at the annual Tenby Sailing Club Regatta, we had everything slung at us over the weekend, but a good time was had by all. Saturday afternoon started off with a lovely flat sea and a nice 8 mph wind coming from the east. The sun was out and the sky was blue, there were smiles all round. The first race got underway first time all be it a few over the line who did realise and returned to cross again. On completion of the first race the sequence started again quickly to get race number two away, some boats were being slightly cheeky and started going over the line early, but with shouts of ‘get back’ booming from the committee boat they saw the error of their ways, just managed to duck behind the line and the fleet got away. During the race however the wind totally dropped and there was less sailing and more of a synchronised drift. As the fleet were finishing there was cries of woe and are, we doing a third race. Luckily the sea breeze came back in although there was a big wind shift. The course was reset and the third race got underway but unfortunately the wind shifted back and the beat ended up being a fetch with all making the mark in one tack, but that is professional sailing for you sometimes you can’t help what the wind does.

The Sunday however it was a totally different sailing game, sea was rough the wind was howling. So, the PRO took the decision that the round Caldey race would have to be changed to a long-distance race with the sound due to the horrific conditions round the back of the island. The course was set to start near the harbour out to eel point then to north high cliff then back to St Catherin’s around a mark and back round then finishing just off the harbour again. Although the wind was strong and the sea choppy the fleet all crossed the line with smiles on their faces, well except for a couple who broke their masts.

The top three Saturday races are as follows, First Oscar Chase and Crew from Tata Sailing Club second Dan and Chris from Tenby both in Ospreys and then Simon and his crew in a 2000. Race two Again saw Oscar Chase and his crew in the top slot, then Ian Fryett and Crew from Cardiff in an RS 500 in in third Ted and Lucas in a Tenby Osprey. In Race three there was a change at the top with Simon and crew in the 2000 Second Oscar and crew in and Osprey and third Ross Prytherch in a Solo from PYC.

The top three in the long-distance race were in first place Simon and crew in the 2000 then closely followed by two Tenby Ospreys of Dan and Chris then Ted and Lucas.

The big prizes were presented to the respective winners in the club house by the Commodore Nathan Spiller. The Tenby Sailing Club did very well overall and the following trophies went to the following home sailors. The silver galleon went to Dan and Chris for the first Tenby Osprey over the line in race one. The Rolly Squibb’s memorial trophy went again to Dan and Chris from Tenby. And the team prize of £500 went to the Tenby Team Plonkersaurus, the prize money was generously given by the main event sponsors Lewis Lewis and Co, with other prize monies coming from Penally Abbey.

A big thank you goes out to all the competitors for making the effort to come to Tenby some travelling from quite a distance away and making it a weekend of excellent racing. Also a huge thank you to all the committee boat crew and all the safety boat helms and crews as well as the shore staff, whom are all volunteers and without them no event could take place.

A lucky header put Slipstream ahead of Aries and after some close tacking rounded the Giltar buoy first but with the other 3 boats close behind. 

Slipstream hoisted the Spinnaker for the reach down to the North High Cliff Buoy.  It was Aries first outing and there was some delay in hoisting their Spinnaker, Blake with Chris, Anne and Paul in Slipstream gybed onto port and flew the Spinnaker back into Tenby to claim first place.

Dinghy Racing

Last Tuesday the 28th saw a rather reduced fleet due to some Tenby Sailors taking part in the Coppet Hall Week hosted by Saundersfoot Sailing Club. The weather was ideal for sailing with sun and a nice wind. One race was sailed with a course ably laid by the PRO Lewis James. Six boats took to the water in first place overall was Ted and Lucas in the first of the four Ospreys on the water. In second place, Peter and Ben in the Scorpion then Mike and Deanna in third also in an Osprey. Next Jamie and Tim in an Osprey in fourth then Dyfan in fifth in his RS Aero 7 last but not least in sixth John and Richard in the last of the Ospreys.

Last Sunday and some consideration of the conditions the fleet went out to have a better look. 2 Ospreys and 1 Scorpion on the water. Ted and Lucas, Jaime and Griff, Peter and Oscar. A course was set however, after a blast it was deemed unsafe to continue with a race and so the race was abandoned. Wind was about 23 gusting 30 with light rain coming and going. Although visibility began to worsen. It was feared that the strong wind would end up breaking boats. No races occurred but I’m sure the sailors would say it was fun but hard work. It was hard enough in a RHIB.

Coppet Hall Week saw a small fleet from Tenby attend, a big well done goes out to all that took park and congratulations to Daniel Jackson and his crew Dave Griffiths who placed fourth overall in his Osprey. The other Tenby racers were Steve and Jas Stubbs in their RS 400 who came thirteenth

Cruiser Racing

The annual cruiser race took place last Saturday 1st, six boats started the race from Hobbs Point to Tenby, unfortunately due to the sheer lack of wind which is a bit problematic for sailing vessels, the fleet was forced to turn back. A few of the crews made the trek by train to Tenby to enjoy the hospitality of Tenby Sailing Club. Many Thanks to Alistair for putting out and the subsequent returning of the finishing marker buoys.

The next club cruiser race will be Sunday 9th.

Tokio Marine HCC UK RS Fever National Championships at South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club

The light & shifty first day, challenging conditions of day 2 with big winds and choppy seas. Day 3 was all about long races, even more wind, short bursts of rain and some sun, day 4 was more wind and a northerly breeze so it was safe to say that all the sailors really showed their versatility and ability to adapt to every condition. The RS Feva community spent a lush 4 days in sunny Abersoch. Host Club South Caernarvonshire YC made the class feel extremely welcome. Tenby Sailing Clubs own junior sailor Oscar Thompson took part in the nationals in the silver fleet and came a very respectable tenth place out of forty seven. Oscar just keeps getting better and better and certainly one to watch out for. Congratulations Oscar.

Junior Sailing

Dinghy Racing

Last Tuesday 7th saw a surprisingly strong wind. 3 boats took to the water. We had one race which lasted around half an hour with the cruisers out too. Dyfan took a tumble in the drink with a capsize before the starting sequence had begun. John Mckellar also fell off whilst in the trapeze for a swim.  However, after working hard they soon warmed back up. In first place was Jamie in his Osprey followed by Dyfan in the Rs Aero 7 then Peter and John in another Osprey.

Last Sunday saw another good turnout for the Sunday racing on the 12th, the fleet was missing one boat but that will be mentioned a bit later on. Four Ospreys took to the water along with a Scorpion and a Laser Radial. The racing took place in a lovely bay with enough wind to get the boats moving at least. The first race saw the victors Peter Rose and Oscar Thompson first in the Scorpion then followed by a fleet of Ospreys Ted and Lucas in one then followed by Jamie and crew then Carwyn and his. Then in came Sophie in the Radial and then John Mckellar with his crew in the last Osprey. In race two there was a change at the top with Ted and Lucas in the top slot then Peter and Oscar in the Scorpion. Next was Sophie in the Laser Radial then the rest of the Osprey fleet came in with Carwyn next then Jamie with John all with their respective crews.

Cruiser Racing

The first race two weeks ago cancelled due to the bad weather, but with much improved weather last Tuesday 7th three boats got away. The course was set to north high cliff buoy and back again, Blake In Slipstream had a good start closely followed by Roy in Chiron and Phil in accolade. Blake rounded first mark after a long beat to windward, after the run back slipstream won the Harry billing cup with only 3 seconds separating Roy and Phil. The weather last Saturday wasn’t on the cruiser fleets side with four boats starting the race,  unfortunately ran out of wind and it does take a little bit to get them on the move so it was abandonded.

Next race tomorrow Saturday at 5pm

Junior Sailing

Just a quick reminder to all registered juniors, please turn up by 1700 planning to get on the water by 1745.  All sessions are weather permitting but sailing sessions are never cancelled as there is onshore sessions that have to take place in order to complete the course.

RS Vareo National Championships winner John Nutall of Tenby Sailing Club

The RS Vareo National Championships were held at Paignton Sailing Club 10-12 May, on day one the RS Vareos were treated to lovely sunny weather and steady 10 knots. Defending champ Luke Fisher sailed well with a 2,1,3 so far but overnight leader is Jon Nutall of Tenby Sailing Club with 1,2,1.  The rest of the fleet have an even spread of results so there’s everything to play for going into day two. Day Two however the wind changed to the North for the day and was generally lighter.  This gave relatively little chop which appealed more to the pond sailors.  In the end Luke and Jon got the first two spots in every race except race six where Nick Crickmore found the go switch taking the lead on the first off-wind leg and then building to finish well clear, only to be disqualified later so normal service resumed. Then day three the breeze clocked right and settled earlier than forecast so racing got underway on time.  It was light with an Easterly chop, slowly dying throughout the day so favouring the lighter sailors.  Nick Crickmore found his upwind pace getting two seconds and a third.  Luke ‘no mistakes’ Fisher put in his usual solid performance to get two bullets, but a first in race one just before the breeze got too light sealed the deal for John a new champion at Tenby Sailing Club.

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.

So, the next quiz will be held on Saturday 1st June at 1930 so make it a date in your diary and 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.
