Club Racing:

Last Sunday was a lovely sunny day after previous blustery conditions, encouraging a fleet of 11 keen competitors to turn out for two well-run races around the club course.
At the start, the eagle-eyed race team of Martin Andrews, Peter Ordway and Anita Osborne spotted several who were over-eager and we had the second general recall of this season. The fleet got away at the second attempt on a Monkstone –Pendine-Harbour course with two reaches followed by a testing and shifty beat back to the harbour with the wind varying in strength and direction causing a few forced tacks.
The faster boats got away slightly and had a real tussle until the end, all finishing within 50 yards or so and they took the first four finishing places. Dave in the Solo made first, closely followed by Keith in his Streaker, while Jo in her Laser finished 3rd, closely followed by Paul & Julia in the National 12. Hard on the heels of the faster boats were the fleet of Toppers headed by Ben, just in front of James, with Hywel finishing 3rd Topper.
A couple of the youngsters then headed off to Tenby to do rescue for the Caldey to Tenby swim while the remaining competitors started the second race almost as soon as the first race was ended thanks to the super-quick race team.
The same course was set, this time Paul & Julia seemed to be taming the temperamental National 12 and led around the first 2 marks although the Green machine had ideas of its own and a vicious wind shift resulted in an impromptu tack and they were joining the Caldey to Tenby swimmers with a brief dip of their own !
The smaller boats were staying very close behind, resulting in a second win in the last two weeks for Ben in his Topper. He would have been more closely followed or even bettered by James, until James followed the National 12 in a brief swim, letting in Keith, Jo & Dave in that order before the aquatic section of James, Paul & Julia !
Many thanks as always to our dedicated race officers and rescue crews for providing such excellent sport.

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.
