Come sailing on a Wednesday evening
Ideal sailing conditions for an exciting day of competition. This year there were 6 sailors who had come to ASC from all over. Club members were keen to pick up tips on technique to improve their sailing.
The first race was in run in good winds with the lead changing throughout but eventually Bob Dodds got to the front and stayed there.
Race two conditions were even more trying with strong gusting winds causing some incidents at the back fo the field with collisions and capsizes happening more than once.
By race three conditions had quietened down and whilst less exciting for the spectators was still interesting on the water.
Overall a great day and many thanks to all who turned out to help.
Arden Sailing Club is a thriving club which has enjoyed many years of fun on the river Avon at Defford, near Pershore. There is organised dinghy racing on Wednesday evenings and Sundays during the summer along with many social events throughout the year. The club is an RYA approved training centre. We have a small fleet of club boats available and give friendly advice to new members encouraging them to take to the water in the improvers or full race programme or, of course, just for fun.

Request to Officers of the Day for 2019.
This year to try and keep track of each race series as we go a long and so that everyone can see how they are doing I will provide a printed sheet for each series that will be placed on the board in the starters hut. I would ask that the OOD on the day fills in the results on the sheet. In the case of the Pursuit and Handicap series the sheet will also act as the record of the revised handicaps for the next leg of the series.
Ralph Evans - Sailing Secretary
Could I also request that you email me a picture of the race result scoresheet and write a one paragraph summary of racing with two pictures so that I can publish it on the website.
