Sun shining, blue skies, a balmy 16 degrees and 10 mph winds, who could have asked for more on the first day of sailing of the 2021 season. After prepping the RIB, cleaning the mud off the slipway and a myriad other tasks we were ready for the first proper day of racing for more than a year. A great turnout with 9 boats on the water and some great racing whilst we all tried to remember how to sail. 3 races made up the challenge and Simon stormed to victory winning two of the races.

Fun sailing on the river

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.
