Dinghy Racing

Dinghy Update 2013

A huge thank you to Beccy from all the dinghy sailors for 3 years of excellent work as Captain
Dinghies and a personal thank you for her help as I take on the role and familiarise myself with the responsibilities.
The dinghy sailing calendar has now been finalised and kicks off with a season start meeting/get together on Friday 5th April at 19.00 hrs. This is a chance to meet up before the first race on Sunday 7th April and have a chat about the coming season.

With a total of 49 race dates, hopefully everybody who wants to race can find dates that are convenient. The Wayfarer Cup returns to the calendar on Sunday 7th July and I will be asking racers to pre-book Club boats so that sailors know that they have a boat and crew. With a 15.00hrs start it gives plenty of time to get rigged up and familiar with the boats.

The Laser Plate this season will be held over 3 dates. There are 5 races scheduled and 3 race results to count.
The Dinghy Regatta is on Sunday 30th June. I apologise that this is the weekend of the annual Helford to L’Aber-Wrac’h Race but it could not be avoided as none of the tides in July are suitable for an all day Sunday Regatta.

Thank you to Steve and Margaret for volunteering, once again, to run an average lap series of races. This season these will be on the weekends during May.

Anyone who is interested in dinghy racing please get in touch, as there is a fantastic opportunity at the Club to experience this exciting sport in a friendly and relaxed environment.
