"What's Happening on the Water"
Following the fantastic spell of good weather, the Icebreaker Series last Saturday brought out many of our dinghy sailors who enjoyed two races in the harbour. So far this "Series" has seen a total of 39 boats competing, which is a record for winter sailing at CSC……. I congratulate you all for your keenness to make winter dinghy sailing great success. With March 9th and 23rd to go in this series we have seen a good turn out from all classes. Jack Acton is leading the series on 5 points in his Laser, with Simon Percival second in a Finn with 6points. Out of the 39 competitors there are 7 competing from Highcliffe S. C. Lorraine Wells is the highest placed at 15th in her R S Aero 7.
The next Highcliffe run "Icicle Series" is on Sunday 10th March. The last meeting was cancelled due to no wind, so let us hope the next will provide good weather for all our competing dinghies. So far 45 boats have competed and pleased to report we hold the top two spots, with Alex Atkins in first overall place and Ray New holding 2nd. We have had 19 sailors from our club and a number from other clubs such as Stokes Bay, Lymington Town SC, Mudeford SC, Keyhaven SC, Burfield SC, Spinnaker SC and Lee on Solent SC.
Our hardy seven juniors continue their training sessions last Saturday at Spinnaker SC, Ringwood enjoying the good weather on the lake.
The Seminar in the Training Room last Sunday morning was well represented, and we will be running similar training sessions throughout the year. The weather was so good we could have held it on the water.
This will be my last "What's Happening on the Water." As you know I will be standing down at the AGM this Saturday, and I do hope that someone will continue this weekly bulletin, so as to keep you informed of the huge variety of what goes on the water, at our very diverse and exciting programme of sailing events for all to enjoy and prosper.
