Weekly Report 05/07/19

Dinghy Racing

Tues 25th saw the Tenby fleet of seven boats out in the bay the wind was very shifty when it was there which makes for quite boring sailing a far cry from the Regatta. Only to be topped off by rain which is quite typical. The results in the race are as follows Mike and Deanna first in an Osprey then Dyfan in his Aero 7. In third Dan and Carwyn fourth John and Richard all in their Ospreys. In fifth Bill and Peter in the Redwing next in sixth was Jamie and Dave in another Osprey and in seventh Steve and Jasmine in the RS 400. The results for the 30th first was Jamie and Dave in an Osprey the in second James in a Laser the OOD picked up a third so as to not miss out on points for being the race officer.

Cruiser Racing

The rescheduled Round Caldey island cruiser race was run last Sunday afternoon.                                                                                                                                                                      The forecast of SW Force 5 to 6 resulted in all boats starting with reefed sails. It was a beat to windward all the way down the sound. Blake In Slipstream led as far as St Margarets Island with Steve in Aries close behind and Roy in Chiron in Phil in Accolade 3rd and 4th. Boats could bear away after rounding St Margaret’s going across sand top and with the wind dropping slightly full sail was now possible. The three boats with furling jibs were ok to shake out the reefs but the crew of Slipstream were not able to change sail due to the rough sea. The result was that Aries slowly pulled ahead with Chiron and Accolade catching up. There was a run at the back of the island followed by a reach back to Tenby. It was a memorable race.

Final placings on Handicap were 1st Aries, 2nd Accolade, 3rd Chiron and 4th Slipstream

Commodores Quiz

Last Saturday saw five teams take part in the, the winners on the night was the cola clan in second The Dashers and third the Bo Ho’s. In fourth the 4 Amigos and last but no means least the Lone Dogs.

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 27th July 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.
