Wednesday evening series starting at 18:00 is to run from the 25th April to the 12th September
A pleasant Wednesday evening of sailing with a nice but variable wind. 4 boats took to the water including Leo Hall with his first solo sail. Leo launched and sailed in what were occasionally tricky conditions for over an hour and returned the Topper under total control to the jetty, job well done, you should be proud, I am sure Dad Dan was.
The weather was beautiful, if not lacking a bit of wind, great for those of us watching, not so much for our sailors. In the first race; the third in the handicap series, there were six boats on the water and Malcolm College took a leisurely lead on the river which he held unchallenged until the end.
1 - College (Comet)
2 - Bryden (Heron)
3 - Newman (Streaker)
4 - Trzoska (Comet)
The second race of the day covered the 3rd round of the comet, commodore and Burt Therlow series, sadly the wind dropped even further for our slightly sunburnt sailors, Wood in the Comet led the fleet to a speedy victory.

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.
Sunday 27th June
Free sailing day
No racing, just come along and enjoy a bimble.
New Request to Officers of the Day for 2018.
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.
