Weekly Report 19/07/19

Dinghy Racing

Tues 9th saw eleven boats out on the water in a lovely wind and even the sun was out which made for a pleasant evening racing. This week there was a mixed fleet of all sized boats and abilities which is always pleasing to see. The results were as follows, in first place was Dan and Chris in the Osprey and in second Mike and Deanna also in an Osprey. In third saw Peter in a Phantom come across the line closely followed by Ted and Lucas in their Osprey finishing in fourth. In fifth was Ioan who continually moves up the fleet in sixth Huw and Carwyn in another Osprey, next came Dyfan in his Aero 7 with Bill and Pater coming in eighth in the classically built Redwing. In ninth saw Martyn and Evan the RS 200 cross the line closely followed by James in a laser and in eleventh place John crossed the line in a Comet.

Sunday the 14th had the fleet out in the bay racing in a rather sedate manner. With the wind for ever dropping they still managed to get two races in, the eventual results are as follows. In first place in race one was Mike and Deanna in second Ted and Lucas in third was Dan and Chris all sailing Ospreys. Next in fourth was Dyfan in the RS Aero 7 then John and Geoff in another Osprey coming in fifth then over the line was Oscar in a laser 4.7. in the second race it was a change at the top with Dyfan first in the Aero then in second third and fourth was Make and Deanna, Dan and Chris then John and Geoff respectively. Let’s hope for a bit more wind next week.

Cruiser Racing

The Cruiser race planned for last Sunday the 14th was cancelled due to the sheer lack of wind to get the big boats going.

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 FRI 26th 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.
