Race summary:

A frostbite series may not be a sailors ideal day out but I am sure that all who took part in this series enjoyed every race as we were grateful for some excellent weather to sail in for the whole series but I suppose that's what could be thought of as normal living on this coastline. Todays race started on time and in a steady 2 to 3 breeze coming from the north and without too much chill factor to upset the rescue crew.

Pendine - Monkstone - Harbour was set and off they all went with no problems around the start and all seemed in a friendly mood so maybe it was the time of year. I did notice a well dressed Santa in the form of Keith who it does appear likes to get well involved in the dressing up side of sailing, Peter and Rhys set the pace in the Osprey with our current top two contenders David and James in hot pursuit, Jo with new crew Hywel in the L2K were off with a good start as well. Harry our seasoned silver fleet champion struggled on the line in the Vision but soon pulled the sails round and off he went. Steady breeze and cool conditions enabled the race to run for 3 laps with our faster boats and 2 for the rest of the fleet. Eventually the results were James Hayden 1st, David Plester 2nd, Peter Bower 3rd.

With temperatures dropping the second race was off and all the fleet continued around the same course, normal positions were held but the new RS Aero in the hands of Keith and Santa seemed to be going upwind better this time and made up some places, it is hard though to shake off the seasoned professionals and similar position were held to the first race with slightly faster times though. A shortened course was decided due to dropping winds and cooling temperatures. final positions were James Hayden 1st, David Plester 2nd, Keith Jones 3rd.

Thanks to a very professional but slightly cold OOD team of Mick and Clare who had been relieved of beach trolley duty to fly flags and take the times. Terry and Tom again were out there dressed for the cold but well on the ball with mark setting and rescue cover. This was the final race of the frostbite series so an end to any more race report till next spring, thanks to everyone who has helped make this season a success.

2014 AGM:

Well for an AGM I must admit that when I entered the room for normal proceedings it felt a lot like Xmas had come early with some excellent food in the form of a free buffet and some even more tasty beers available to wet the appetites of those venturing out to attend. Well done to a seasoned team of club helpers who also had the xmas decorations up along with the tree. Club president Rolfe John opened proceedings with his address on the years progress with Commodore Martin Andrews following with a talk that outlined the clubs year and future challenges along with some excellent sailing results and a few photos of great days out on the water.

Formal AGM agenda was followed with various proposals outlined and voted on with differing results, club finance director Rob Talboys gave a very clear presentation on the club finances and as with many other clubs we rely a lot on peoples generosity of time and effort to balance the books. We all hope that members will come forward and offer any time that they can with committee work, building maintenance or sailing duties. Please contact any member of the committee if you are able to assist the club.

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.
