"What's Happening on the Water - 14/11/2018"
Published 10:28 on 17 Nov 2018
The CSC Juniors are all enjoying their winter training at Spinnaker Sailing Club. They are William Foy, Finley Leigh Anderson, Sean Williams, George Hayles, Lyla Bryan-Brown, Didi Bryan-Brown and Max Rayner. The feedback is they are learning a lot about all aspects of sailing and looking forward to the next session.
Last Weekend was marred by the strong winds, however, many braved the conditions in all classes although numbers were low. After the initial trial of running two races in the Harbour Winter Series, it was decided at last night's Sailing Committee that all classes will start together, which will make the timing of each lap easy for the Race Officer to control. A new Recording Sheet will be made available. This will not affect the Scow racing in the River. No racing this weekend. A shame as the weather looks good and settled.
As you know we have many junior sailors who are working hard to reach their individual sailing goals. One such member is Jack Acton. His 2018 Autumn qualifiers did not get off to a good start. He had 10 stitches in his head thanks to a coming together with another boat, and could not leave the IOW to travel to another competition due to storms. Then he found himself flying to Manchester instead of Newcastle. He has realized the recent qualifiers have been of the highest standard, with well-known names in attendance as part of the Olympic selection process, making the start line really difficult to say the least. Further detail of his quests in Rutland for the Nationals and other other meetings will be in next week's, what's happening on the water. You will be happy to learn his head is healing together with his confidence.
Don't forget the Race officer seminar at in the training room on Saturday 15th December starting at 9.30am
Hoping for good sailing this weekend
