Race report and week summary

Sunday 23rd August 2015

SSC race summary.

The enthusiasm and the will to go out sailing was there, we even had a group of sailors all kitted up with sails almost flapping in the breeze but alas there just was not enough to allow our keen weather watching OOD David to give the green light to sail.

The mist was rolling in and any wind soon dissipated away with the keenest of club members heading off home for an early dinner. There will though be more racing planned for next Sunday which has a race start time of 17.30 and consists of two races being watched over by OOD James.

Friday club sailing

Currently there is a plan to sail this Friday evening with a 5pm start for social sailing so if you would like to come along I am sure there will be a good attendance, for more accurate detail please monitor the Facebook pages as most people seem to post on there now for any up to date sail messaging.

Bart’s Bash 20th September

Currently the club has 27 boats registered which is still the largest in the world and we plan to start the race at 11am. We do have lots planned to fill the day which includes as many boats kitted out in fancy dress for the race as we can muster including crews. Tea / Coffee / Cakes available in the clubhouse before and after the race. Haywood’’s slinger sausages in a roll to fill you up before the rugby starts on the big screen at 14.30 between Wales and Uruguay in the world cup.

We have some great trophies sponsored by Waters Edges Holiday Apartments and the list of raffle prizes is growing but we do need more so please help to support this popular fund raising raffle for a good cause.

Tenby brewery will be supplying a Bart’s real ale which we will be selling at the give away price of £2.50 a pint so that seems a good deal not to be missed. We will also be having a raffle and fundraising for what the day is all about and that is to support the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation but having some fun at the same time.

We do hope to raise some money by selling cakes so if you wish to donate either a bought or homemade cake then please contact Mick Lightwood with your offer of help.

Hopefully this run of very wet and dismal weather will improve for not only all our regular sailors but the holiday makers as well who it seems have turned up with many boats to sail during their vacation and have located their boats on the beaches of both Coppet and Saundersfoot.
