Come sailing on a Wednesday evening

Sunday 10th October

October Race Series

A lovely day with warm temperatures and sunshine but a very strong and gusting wind.

In spite of peak gusts of 27mph with the avaerage windspeed of 11mph, four intrepid sailors took to the water. With the first race Simon initially took the lead but was overhauled by Ralph with the two Davids retiring due to the exciting conditions. This repeated itself for all three races, surprisingly ( and full credit to all) nobody took a dip but at some point or other all of the sailors had to be retrieved from the bankside by the safety boat.

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 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.
