Club Racing:

Appropriately for last Sunday- July 13th, thirteen boats took to the water for the first of two club races. Eight different classes of dinghy were represented providing a varied visual spectacle and a more complex calculation of the race results! It was a glorious, very warm and sunny evening for the start and a good mix of age and ability made for an exciting expectation of tactical racing. The prospect was enhanced by the setting of a more complex course than usual around all four of the regular club marks, namely Pendine, Monkstone, Amroth, Harbour making up two triangles for a single circuit. It was good to see Peter Bower back in the land of the living phantom - returning to racing after his unfortunate injury! Clearly the break had not dimmed his ability as he lead all the way round although closely chased by Paul and Julia in the N12 and Jo in her Laser. Steve Cavel was also showing his form sailing a close race in the middle of the field together with John Roberts - both in their Solos. New sailors Tom Eyre and Rhys Jackson cruised round satisfactorily in the Wayfarer - well done both, especially as they have only done a few weeks of training before coming out racing. The race was eventually won after three laps by Peter, 2nd Jo Musson and 3rd Paul and Julia. A well earned 4th place for James in his Topper, closely followed by Aled in the Oppie – a good result for both.
The course was revised to a traditional triangle - Amroth, Monkstone, Harbour and the fleet set off on the second race, again all in very close competition. This is definitely making the racing more enjoyable and challenging for all. There was a bit of “follow my leader” syndrome at one point, but unfortunately the five boats that did the following went round the mark the wrong way and were thus judged as "did not finish". The final results were Jo 1st, Paul and Julia 2nd and Peter in his Phantom 3rd.

Thanks to OOD Keith Jones with timekeeper Wendy, also to those on rescue where there was a bit of a family affair with Judy and her dad crewing for our regular rib drivers Huw and Pete.

Next Club Racing:

There are two races next Sunday with a midday start.

Tuesday Sailing:

No sailing this Tuesday as the tides are difficult, but there is the prospect of other extra sailing and possible voyages during the school holidays – so watch this space !

About the club

INTRODUCTION

Saundersfoot is a small seaside holiday village in West Wales with picturesque scenery, an excellent beach and ample parking. The sailing waters within Saundersfoot Bay attract many sailors and regattas are always well supported. Catering facilities within the village are good; cafes, inns and shops are all within a few yards of the central car park. Residential accommodation is available in hotels and guest houses. Saundersfoot Sailing Club's dinghy park is small and unfortunately, has no space available for visiting boats. However, boats can usually be left safely on the beach.

   
ON THE WATER

Although the club encourages all forms of watersport it is mainly dinghy sailing and cruiser sailing that forms the major part of our on the water activity. The club has a full dinghy sailing programme with the season running from April to October each year. To encourage new members to the sport of dinghy sailing the club has an active sail training scheme which is run in accordance with the Royal Yachting Association who are the governing body of the sport in the UK. Cruiser sailing activity is based more on cruising than racing although regular races are held with our neighbouring club Tenby Sailing Club and we also hold a cruiser regatta.
