Dinghy Racing

The frostbite season continued with two races sailed last Sunday the 27th after the disappointing loss to South Africa. Eight boats took to the water in a sunny pleasant but ever decreasing wind. In race one top spot went to Peter and Oscar in the Scorpion, in second Mike and Deanna in an Osprey closely followed by Ted and Lucas also in an Osprey. In fourth was Ioan in the Laser Radial and fifth Jon and Amelia in a Laser 2000. Next in sixth was the RS 200 sailed by Dan and Rubs in seventh Huw and Carwyn in an Osprey then in eighth John in his Comet.

Race two six boats took part and the winds were getting lighter and lighter by the minute forcing the race to be cut short for three boats and for the other three not managing to finish. The top three were again Peter and Oscar in the Scorpion second Mike and Deanna third Ted and Lucas both in Ospreys. All the others John in the Comet, Jon and Amelia in the 2000 and Huw and Carwyn in an Osprey didn’t manage to cross the line due no no wind but still managed to pick up some points.

The Last Commodores Quiz

Six teams came to the last and final quiz by this commodore anyway, the mega quiz went down a treat and everyone enjoyed the night. The night was sponsored by Molson Coors Brewing Company and all that took part were given a small token of appreciation in the guise of a bottle of prosecco.

The scores on the doors for the night went like this, in sixth place with the best score they have ever had were the Lone Dogs with 70 points, in fifth The Four Amigos with 79. Next in fourth came the Bo Ho’s with 91, next in fourth Princess Consuela Banana Hammock with 93. Then the top two were the Dashers with 98 and in first as ever the Cola Clan with 103.

Just as it happens all six teams have been taking part in the quiz league that has happened all year, this is where the monthly scores carried over until the final and totted up to find the club champions. The total league scores are as follows in sixth the Lone Dogs with 237 points, in fifth Princess Consuela Banana Hammock with 371 points. Then in fourth The Bo Ho’s with 373 then The Four Amigo’s with 373.5 in second the Dashers with 463.5 and top of the shop for the second year running and should apply to Egg Heads the Cola Clan with 497 points.

All this year we have been raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. I would like to thank all the quizzers that have come to the club on the last Saturday of the month for the last two years come hell or high water to take part and raise money for two very worthwhile causes. Last year we raised over £870 for the RNLI, and this year we have reached and passed our target of £1300 to have a defibrillator in a heated cabinet to be fitted outside the club on the harbour for the benefit of the members, community and visitors alike. Not only has this been raised by the quizzers but from private donations including Astral Azure Engineering Services.

BIG Thank you to all my quizzers and donators.
