Now is your chance…..

for a free ‘Have a Go’ session


April Races

The weather was forecast to be promising and it didn’t let us down, four sailors started the first race with Ralph and Simon getting ahead of the two Herons, the race was brought to a close after 3 laps when Steve took a dip, elegantly falling backwards off his boat trying to free himself from the rigging. After fun and games attempting to right the fully inverted Heron we were back for race two with David helping Ali with the OOD duties. The second race finished with less drama than the first but as can be seen from the picture it wasn’t exactly a photo finish. Many thanks to Ali for OOD’ing to enable us to race.

Race 1
1st - Ralph - Solo
2nd - Simon - Streaker
3rd - David - Heron
DNF - Steve - Heron

Race 2

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.  

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.
