Well a bit less on this week Wednesday did not have the usual turnout only 4 boats probably due to the wind, Shan retired saying she didn’t fancy a swim,Jeanette was as obliging as ever and took Dave T out to show how it should be done and came first watch that handicap!. Jim stole 2nd place from Dave T after s near capsize and scooped up the contents of the Flash,the rescue boat boys were most disappointed!
See you Friday for youth training
Saturday for the model boats
Sunday morning for free sailing

So Sunday saw 5 Boats out with Dave T and Zara T winning all races,no suprise there, so those of you who want some competition come to Sunday racing! also trying hard to keep up were Shan in her Mirror,the 2 Pauls S & B in the GP ,Dave H in his GP and Dave T all on his own in his Solo.
Thanks to Gareth for stepping in to cover for Charlie as OOD as Charlie is still not well, get better soon we need you at the Flash to crew for Shan and get her back in her Enterprise.
If you are a beginner and want to learn then why not crew for someone all you have to do is ask people are always willing to help.
Finally thanks to Barrie F from the model boats for mowing the car park and entrance,just shows if we all work together then we can all have a nice place to meet and sail.
Well we ran a push the boat event out last week along with most other RYA associated clubs throughout the UK,the aim to promote club dinghy sailing.We opened the club up to visitors every day with a few non members attending hopefully they will soon become members of our sailing family ,we look forward to seeing them on the water.hopefully all the other clubs had a good response to their events.
