Working Parties Have Started

Working Parties Have Started

Many thanks to all who attended the first working party session at the club yesterday. A good start was made on a number of jobs including painting in the clubroom and men’s changing rooms, cleaning blinds and high level windows, removal of buoys from the mere, clearing gutters, unblocking drains, and hedge trimming. A welcome lunch of homemade leek and potato was provided Alison Hubbard.

There are plenty of jobs still to be done with the next working party scheduled for next Sunday the 12th of February commencing at 9.30am.

It would be helpful if volunteers could indicate (via email) to Steve Hubbard which working parties they are planning to attend and the type of tasks they feed they are best suited for. Actual tasks can then be allocated on the day.

Happy New Year!

From the start a long, but equal, beat allowed some sizable gaps to appear. Sometimes the sheer strength of the wind overpowered all but the strongest and heaviest. The subsequent run and next beat was followed by a good planing reach, before a gybe mark caused many casualties. While many succeeded, the three flights of single handed, handicap and Juniors were now split in half. Just nine boats survived to end race 1. [read more...]

    Pursuit Race success!

    The Pursuit Trophy Race on the 27th November (postponed from October because of lack of wind) was close to suffering the same fate again, the day that the Budworth Pairs had vacated! However, a breeze from the north east was sufficient both races to be run successfully! The wind direction made for a tight course to be sailed with E to C as the first beat.

    A ‘remnant’ from the Budworth Pairs, a Firefly was the ‘scratch’ boat, with Solo, GP14, Laser and RS200 following on. Ted Garner in the Solo quickly caught up his handicap of 1 minute 11 seconds to overtake the Firefly, and thereafter a ‘battle royal’ began [read more...]
