Reminder that the last Sunday of each month will be free sailing so come along and enjoy a relaxed sail

Racing on Sunday 15th April

Due to the bad weather this was only the second day of racing this season but undeterred by the rain we had a fleet of dinghys racing.

Good southerly winds with occasional lulls to catch people out gave some great racing. A big congratulation to Jacob Dorman who won the second race convincingly and thanks to his Dad for the atmospheric pictures.

April Series of Races

Since the Easter Racing was cancelled due to the inclement weather the prizes will now be awarded to the winners of the April Series of Races on the 22nd April 2018

Floods

This picture was taken at 4pm on Tuesday 3rd April, I have since revisited the site on Thursday morning and the water level has now dropped by at least a foot compared to this.

As always nature proved how powerful it is by modifying part of the landing stage.

There was no racing on the 7th of April due to a total lack of wind.

Spring Series Race 5

After prolonged  unseasonal weather, 6 crews finally took to the water for the first time this season at ASC, Defford on Sunday.  A beautiful and warm sunny day and light but fickle north westerly breeze set the scene for the Spring Handicap Series (5) .

All started and finished the 4 lap course but after applied handicaps the final results were:

1st Niall/Jane Campbell (Enterprise)
2nd: David Brydon (Heron)
3rd: Simon Newman (Streaker)
4th: Tricia Wood (Comet)
5th: Keith Stevens (Comet)
6th: Steve Ryder (Comet)

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.

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.
