Weekly Report 21/09/2018

Dinghy Racing
Racing on Tuesday the 11th saw five boats out on the water in a bit of wind. Out of those five boats only three Ospreys finished with Dan Jackson coming home first, with Jamie
second and John third. Last Saturday the 15 th saw six intrepid Ospreys brave the windy conditions to complete two races. Fun was had by all and just to top of the excitement there
were a few capsizes that were thrown into the mix which made for leadership challenges. The eventual winner for race one was Dan then followed by Ted and then Jamie with Mike,
John and then Richard closely following. In Race two carried on the drama with only a slight change to the rankings again with Dan, Ted and Mike making up the one, two, three and
Jamie, Richard and John then coming home.


Junior Sailing
Another good session last week in great conditions, most groups concentrated on going around triangular courses which involves all points of sailing, rounding marks, tacking and gybing. There is just one sailing session left next wed with an end of season party on wed Oct 10 th . Many thanks to all the volunteers who have helped to run the 26 sessions involving training a total of 50 youngsters in 25 club dinghies and 5 safety boats on the water. And in other news 7 Tenby sailing club junior members attended the PPSA training day last Saturday with a CYRC junior racing event on Sunday. This is a first for some of them as they normally only sail on home waters.
The CYRC racing was delayed due to strong winds but racing got under way later. In the Topper training fleet jasmine HAIGH was 4th. In the general handicap Ioan Thompson was 2nd in a laser radial, Oscar Thompson and Iolo Shaw were 3rd in a Feva, Osian Bhatterchergie and Daniel De Kroon were 9th in a Feva. Scarlett Jackson also took part in a training day. A very promising turnout by our juniors not forgetting the efforts of the parents getting them there.
Next CYRC is at Dale on Saturday 22nd
