Regatta Fireworks night

It was really great to see how many CSC members enjoyed a super evening at the club last Saturday

All the cruisers alongside had taken the trouble to dress their boats overall

Queues at the bar for drinks, so many enjoying a BBQ before watching the 15minute firework display

The club was really buzzing which made for a hugely successful Club social evening

Thank you:

None of this could have happened without the efforts of the team of members setting everything up, the gate security team and our brilliant bar staff.

A huge thank you to you all.

Scow News.....

Relay Team Race

Last Sunday afternoon the second Scow Relay Team Race was held. The last was
in 2019. The race was run around the Club area in the river, with a start and finish
of each lap on the Club line. In testing conditions of occasional gusts
reaching 18knots, two teams of Scows battled it out in a very tight race
with positions changing each lap. Also watched from the bar area and balcony
of the club by a number of jealous class 4 members, who expressed great
interest in adding a similar Team Relay Race next year for class 4 & 5.
The Trophy presented by Stuart Percival was handed to the winners in the bar
after the race.
The winning Team were: John Challener (Scow 333) and Mark Merritt (Scow 181)
Second were: David Groom (Scow 696) & Paul Hansen (Scow 111)

CSC Snotties in Cowes

Over the weekend through to today Sonata Teams have been battling it out in the Solent in the 2021 Sonata Nationals. CSC have had been represneted by four teams; Pheobe, Fiddlers Elbow, Blu V and Roadrunner.

Following the welcome on Saturday evening (Gin & T laden affair kindly laid on by Island Sailing Club) ) the first day racing got off the next day to a very blustery start with gusts of 28knots.

Well .. things got broken and crews got battered! Fiddlers Elbow (Skippered - Jon Arnell) took two firsts in the lift keelers and were rewarded with some glassware. Day two was slightly less windy and positions were reversed as Phoebe (Skippered - Owen Kerr) got two firsts again within the lift keel boats. More daily glassware was presented! Fin keelers are hard to beat and most of the boats racing had fin keels! Monday saw the AGM and curry was laid on for the competitors. At the time of writing two more days to go (Tues: Wed ) and all to play for! Good luck to our teams!!
