Finally we had a Sunday that wasn’t hot and sunny and we actually had some rain half way throught he second race! I assume the forecast of heavy rain and possibility of thunder and lightning put off a lot of sailors, in the end only Steve Ryder and Malcolm Colledge raced with Dave Yule as OOD and Tricia Wood at A-OOD.
The 1st race had brisk and changeable winds, Malcolm took a commanding lead that he held to the end. On Race 2 the wind had eased slightly but was still interesting and the race was much closer with Steve overhauling Malcolm on the final run to the last turn. Malcolm’s generous coaching obviously paid off.

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.
