Wednesday evening series has now finished for 2018
Very windy conditions with sudden very strong gusts promised trying conditions with the RYA flag flying horizontally. It was meant to be three races of the September series. A course was laid in sight of the starters hut and 3 intrepid sailors attempted to start, David Bryden, Tricia Woods and Simon Newman.
After 3 capsizes within the first lap the first race was abandoned and it was decided to bring in the buoys. The videos show Tricia being overpowered by a gust and then later offering a masterclass in Comet sailing, just before another capsize! Great effort by everyone and some superb examples of self recovery in awkward conditions. The safety boat was busy.
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.

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.
