The Paella Evening was another outstanding success with around 85 takers. Well done Grant for saving some paella for the sailors. A big thank you to everyone who helped to make it such a great event, with a special mention for those that turned up this morning to restore the clubhouse to it's sparkling best for our visitors this weekend.
The Laser Pursuit Race yesterday evening was hotly contested in a glorious South Westerly breeze well out in the bay. The pursuit times had all been calculated based on this year's results so everyone had a chance of glory with the staggered start. Congratulations to Stewart 'The Lever' A for getting to the front and holding off the chasing pack. Laser Coaching Day this Saturday Laser South West Grand Prix this Sunday The windguru forecast for both days looks like more of Beer's best - a South Westerly breeze, big waves and sunshine. If you can help out on the beach or in the Club on either day and you havn't volunteered yet, please get in touch - many hands make light work On the Travelling Circuit
One good way to improve your racing skills is to make the effort and travel to Open Meetings at different venues. You get experience of different conditions, different competitors and there is also the possibility of picking up new techniques. Congratulations to Henry 'Halley' J for his two consecutive second place finishes in his Comet dinghy at Attenborough Sailing Club, Nottingham on Saturday 21st and after another long drive down to Farnham, at Frensham Pond SC on Sunday 22nd June
