Categories for Youth (handicap), Junior (handicap), and Optimist.

Raceboard sailing starts this Tuesday, 19th April.
Come down and have some fun followed by a visit to the pub.

The Raceboard fleet is a friendly bunch (seen above), so if you are interested in learning or just picking up that boom again this year, then please contact the fleet captain Mark Spurrell. We have some beginner kit now thanks to Eric and some spare Raceboards so no excuses this year for not taking the plunge :). You don’t have to race to join us and we will make sure we keep clear of any beginners.

Also starting this week is the Weds night series run by Bill Kenyon, which is a great mid-week escape from the stress of work. The series will run for 19 weeks finishing on Wednesday 24th August. Each Wednesday there will be two starts, the first for the Lasers and the second for a Handicap fleet with the first starting at 7 pm. With a maximum total of 38 races being sailed over the whole 19 week series, you only need to sail 12 races to qualify. The evening fun extends beyond the sailing on the water as we socialise in the bar afterwards and with the aid of Alison Hubbard and her helpers consume some fabulous tasting hot food served to the hungry sailors afterwards (Don’t forget to order BEFORE you sail). You can check out the full results as they unfold on the club website at http://budworthsc.org.uk/racing/race-result

Thursday evening

Don’t forget this week we have a great learning event from the winner of the Icebreaker series on Thursday evening – Sail Trim with Ted Garner – 21st April (7pm). Ted will cover the importance of setting the sail trim with the controls at your disposal to ensure you can maintain or improve your boat speed around the course. These evening are free to all club members.

Marketing

Mark Cleary has sent you a separate email on a team of experts flying drones tomorrow to capture some great shots of the club for a video, which we will use on the Website. We are very lucky to get these professionals in so thanks to Paul Foden for introducing them to us.

Photos
Finally many thanks to Gordon Spruce who came down a couple of weeks ago and took some great photos. Also thanks to Bill for ferrying him around all day. Just click the picture below!

“Team JC are looking for 2 helms and 2 crews to join them for this years endurance race.

I am looking for mixed abilities and ages. Juniors, beginners, improvers and sailors of all ability are all welcome. The only prerequisite is a genuine desire to become part of team Budworth at this year’s Southport 24hr race. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 24hr race and Budworth would like to recognise this by entering 5 teams instead of the normal 3 teams of recent years.

The idea of the endurance race is to launch the training and recruitment campaign for the event which will be held over the weekend of September 17th and 18th.

If you would like to join my team please contact me on 07595 362412 , email me Jon Chapman, or speak to me at the club and Sunday or most Wednesdays.
