Dinghy Racing

The Frostbite Series is now well under way, and last Sunday 13th racing was sailed in interesting but fun winds. Although there were capsizes the rescue boat coped admirably and even if everyone ended up testing their buoyancy aids a good time was had by all. The results are as follows.

In first place was the Osprey sailed by Jaime Bohata and Tim in second was Daniel sailing a Laser in third Ben also in a Laser although after a hard sail he did not finish.

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. We are very close to achieving the total so please come down to the final next month.

The next quiz will be held Sat 26th September at 1930 so 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.
