Race 2 Sunday 12th November

Looking at the weather forecast for tomorrow I note a VERY windy day! I am anticipating that there will be no race... 
 
For this Sunday's race 12th November we are hoping for 4 yachts to be taking part, weather permitting... The race start has been brought forward to 11:00 due to circumstances beyond Nigel's control.... See you all then.

Race 1 Sunday 5th November

Only 2 yachts out on Sunday for the first November race of 2017. Lily suffering from a maintenance issue on both the ship and the Skipper... The two J boats took part in a windy event with northwesterly winds gusting up to 30kt. 
 
Here is a quick report from Cogger on Sunday's race.

Offshore Racing

Last year we had some fantastic weather for sailing with only 3 Sundays missed due to inclement weather.It now looks like the Offshores will be racing on Sundays with anticipated start time of 14:00 to run for around 2 - 3 hours. It would be great if the various skippers would sign up their yachts so that we have a better idea of who will be joining in this year.

Second Pre Winter Race 2017

Due to the forecast for Sunday 1st October it was decided to run the second race on Saturday 30th September. Only two yachts managed to get crew at this short notice and Just Enough disappeared into the marina to allow Phil to dive and scrub the bottom after the performance issue last week.

Following the cancellation of the penultimate Wednesday Evening race of 2017 two yachts assembled for a race starting at 14:00hrs

Crews for Just Enough and Lily met at the club for a chate about the race and then took to the launch and prepared for the race start, however Lily had a problem getting her engine started and so the start time was delayed to 14:10.
