Vice Commodore’s Cup
This is another 6 Race Handicap Series( therefore any class of dinghy welcome) held on Saturday afternoons. We had a lovely sail for Race 1 and if you miss one or two, it is not a problem as two discards are allowed. There are prizes for the Gold Fleet, the Silver Fleet (sailors who have never won trophies), the winning crews and Youth and Junior Prizes too.
These are longer races –about an hour- on our beautiful River and covered by a safety boat. How about joining in? Aprés Sail is very sociable as we hang about eating cake and biscuits, drinking tea or coffee and discuss all the details of the race and the little races within the main race. We make our excuses for not winning, we learn from each other and we celebrate the sailors who did well. What better way is there to spend a Saturday afternoon?
This is a 6 race series for Mirrors which takes place every Wednesday evening at 17:30. We have made a good start with race 1 in perfect conditions and would love to see more Mirrors joining in the fun. These races are friendly and informal, close to the Clubhouse and quite short. If competitors feel like another race, we have one! As Mirrors are mostly sailed single-handed, we all give each other a hand to launch and recover. Come and give it a go!
No Quarter given at Golden Oldies last week... thanks to Doc Foreman for the shots!
