Hi all this was why we had to postpone the last Frostbite, coffee and carols
Yes that is a frozen Flash
All being well and hopefully defrosted we will hold the last Frostbite race at 11 followed by coffee, mince pies and carols at 12.30
Well we have nearly reached the end of the year, we have just had our annual dinner and awards evening. Well done to everyone who won a prize but especially to Katie our youngest winner of the year, she has sailed at every opportunity at the club this year and it shows in her huge improvement, not only was she the top Rookie but she has even been giving the more experienced sailors a run for their money even beating some of them.
Amongst her trophies (4 in total)was the Endeavour trophy which reflects her committment.
Only 1 Trophy left to win this year The Frostbite, it is still anyone’s to win so come and join in.
Can Katie make it 5 trophies.
Find out at the last race along with carols and mince pies on December 10th
Firework display Nov 5th 2017

See you all there hopefully.
Gresford Sailing Club has produced many top sailors over the years our latest is Elin who has progressed through the juniors sailed with the seniors and is now off to the Topper world championships in China 2018.
Please see a copy of the email I received from Elins dad.
Our best wishes and congratulations go to Elin let’s hope you have a great time and do well.
Your long investment in developing GSC juniors is paying off for Elin.
Over the last 3 weeks Elin has been selected for:-
- Welsh National Topper Squad (5th Girl and 13th overall at Welsh Zone Championships)
- RYA Great Britain (GBR) Intermediate Topper Squad (24th Girl and 84th Overall, with a 12th place finish in one race, at Poole Selector National Series 1 Regatta)
- An ITCA travel grant to take part it the Topper World Championships in Shenzen China next August. This is one of only 100 ITCA grants issued for this event.
This would not have been possible without the foundations laid in GSC Junior Sailing and wider encouragement Elin has had from across GSC. Thank you all.
Part of the squad training will be developing Elin’s coaching skills. This she will be looking to feed back into GSC Junior Sailing over the coming years.
