Sunday 13th June 2021
A hot and sunny day with just enough wind to keep things moving, great to see a total of nine boats on the water.
Due to the lack of wind just one of the scheduled races was run, Ralph was able to get away from the fleet with the rest splitting into two groups who each enjoyed some close racing at least on the water though on handicap David Bryden in his Heron won by a substantial margin. The early finish allowed Ralph and Helen to clean up and put together a Laser Fun that has been abandoned on the site. Having established all parts are present and it floats we will attempt to sell it to add a bit to club funds.

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.
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.
