Dinghy Racing

Tuesday the 4th June saw 10 boats out on the water nine were racing with one of the boats taking part in the race as part of the adult training scheme. I was a nice night on the water as the rain held off and the fleet even saw a bit of sun, there was also a good amount of wind for racing without there being over powered. The results were as follows. In first place Steve and Jasmine in their RS 400 and in second Ted and Lucas in an Osprey. Next over the line came Peter and Ben in the Scorpion then Martin in a Laser in fifth was Dyfan in his RS Aero 7 and in sixth James May in a Laser. Seventh were Jamie in his Phantom then Bill and Peter J in a Redwing in eighth and ninth John and Richard in and Osprey.

On Sunday the 9th three races were sailed as one was overdue from a couple of weeks ago when weather wouldn’t allow it, ten boats on the water and fun was had by all. James capsized in the first race which allowed the safety boat to do its thing. There was a nice mix of lasers and larger boats like ospreys powering around the bay. It was a very sunny afternoon with good 15 mph winds too, a rare combo.  The results for race one were Jon and Ameilia in a Laser 2000 coming first then the Scorpion of Peter and Oscar. Then came three Ospreys in Third Ted and Lucas then in came Dan and Jamie and in Fifth Mike and Deanna. In sixth was Holly in a Laser Radial closely followed by Sophie also in a Radial.

Then the two Laser Radials but this time Holly came in front then Sophie with James in the Standard rig in Seventh, in Eighth Martyn and Evan in the RS 200

Cruiser Racing

Perfect conditions greeted the 4 starters on Sunday morning, with a west to South west wind the first leg was down to the red Giltar buoy. Aries was first away followed closely but slightly downwind by Slipstream, also having a good start was heather and accolade. Aries stayed on starboard tack after clearing the Skirs but Slipstream tacked onto port heading to south beach. 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.

Alex, Steve, Carolinda and Phil in Aries finished second with Denny in Heather 3rd and Phil Rees in Accolade 4th

Next race tomorrow Saturday 15th at 4pm.

With 10 dinghies having their race at the same time the bay was full of sails

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 will be held on Saturday 29th 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.
