Club Racing:

After all the fun and social excitement of Barts Bash, it was back to normal business last Sunday with practically no wind and a group of sailors who maybe wanted to go or maybe didn't. In the end, the OOD made the decision and they sailed out onto a glassy sea which did finally turn into a sort of sailable experience.
A Pendine / Monkstone /Outlet course was set and the beat out to Pendine was very challenging in the near windless conditions! The choice of which side of the bay to pick could have been a race winner. Paul and Julia seemed to find a bit of breeze and so were pursued by David in the Solo. Judy Lightwood’s first racing experience in Barts Bash had clearly given her a taste for it and she valiantly pursued the others in her Topper.
The course was shortened to one lap due to lack of wind and the eventual results were: 1st David Plester (Solo), 2nd Paul and Julia Griffiths (RS200), 3rd Keith (Streaker).
Thanks to Jo Musson and Tom on OOD duty with Graham, Rhys, Terry and James on rescue.

Members Success:

Congratulations to Ben Roberts and Aled Llewellyn Jones who represented SSC at the WYA Welsh Zone Championships. Over 100 junior and youth sailors from all over Wales invaded Pembrokeshire Yacht Club to take part in some competitive racing. Our youngsters came 7th and 19th respectively. A particular achievement for Aled, sailing in his first major event.

End of a Great Season:


Well that’s it folks – the last of the main season racing – and a pretty successful one it has been! The sailing team has organised a total of 40 club races plus a number of weekday sails, Coppet Week and the record breaking Barts Bash.
To celebrate the successes of the sailing programme and to award the many prizes and trophies, we have an evening event on Saturday 11th October starting at 7pm – so note this in your diaries now.
Appetites will be satiated with Wendy’s unsurpassed Welsh beef sausage hot dogs, thirst will be quenched from the ever flowing bar and decibels will be raised by friendly banter debating the sailing, the weather, the state of the Nation and anything else anyone wishes to engage in!
To help assist the prediction of dogs required please send a signal (text, phone, email or flag) to Mick that you are coming.

Frostbite:

This however is not the end of the racing for the year, as there remains the ever challenging Frostbite Series of another 10 races – weather willing- for the hardy enthusiasts. The first two are scheduled for this Sunday with a 3pm start.

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.
