Sailing Update

Hello and welcome to what will hopefully become a regular HRSC sailing update.

The RYA have issued guidance on what sailing activities can happen vs the government’s timetable. In summary organised activities are permitted from 29 March, and changing rooms and toilets can open from 12 April – when we should also be able to enjoy a socially distanced drink on the balcony 😀. From 17 May the club should be open indoors (subject to the rule-of-6), until 21 June when all restrictions will hopefully be lifted.

August Rock

There is now a temporary unlit buoy marking the August Rock. It will be sometime before a new lit buoy will be on station but negotiations are moving forward . 

In future the main lit buoy will be brought in during the winter months which is disappointing, but the Gedges in an easterly is not a fun place!

New Commodore

Dear Member

I have the honour of being elected Commodore of HRSC, so a little profile of my connection to the Helford River and HRSC.

I was born just outside of St Keverne, about a quarter of a mile from Coverack Bay. At 18 months old the family moved to Withan Farm which ran down to Frenchman’s Creek. We spent a few years at Treveador Farm again bordering Frenchman’s Creek and the Helford River, a short time at Trewothack Farm overlooking Falmouth Bay, back to Withan Farm where I lived until I moved to my own farm which overlooks Carn Creek, so all of my life has been within a short distance of the water.

Drying Mooring

The Club has one Drying Mooring suitable for boats up to 22ft available for rental.  It’s situated a short distance from the end of the Club pontoon and will dry out on a big spring tide.

The cost is £440 for the forthcoming season.

If you are interested in renting this mooring please give me a call in the Club office on 01326 231006 or email [email protected] to express your interest.

Thank you

Tracey

RIB needed

Do any members have a RIB they wish to sell?

One of our members is on the look out for one that will fit a finger berth, so a maximum length of 5m.

If you do, please get in touch with Tracey in the office on 01326 231006

or email [email protected].

Adrian Miller

It is with sadness that we report the passing of past Commodore Adrian Miller on 1st February. Although suffering from a long term illness he was ultimately a victim of the Covid 19 pandemic. 

Adrian served as Commodore from 1998 until 2001, having previously served as Secretary and Vice Commodore.

During his first year he oversaw the club’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. The highlight was the Jubilee Regatta on the 6th June with races for allcomers. To compliment the celebrations Adrian produced the booklet “Helford River Sailing Club The first fifty years”, a general history of the club and clubhouse.

His second year saw the 40th anniversary of the annual race to L’Aber Wrac’h with over sixty boats taking part.

During his third year Adrian was instrumental in setting up the Charter of Friendship with L’Aber Wrac’h and Landeda. Copies of this Charter hang on the wall of the club and the wall of the Hotel de Ville in Landeda.

Adrian’s lasting legacy was at the time less noticeable, but has stood the test of time. He was keen to see the sailing facilities at the club improved and Adrian did a substantial amount of the groundwork and behind the scenes negotiations that resulted in the planning application for the dinghy park extension and the pontoons that we all enjoy today.

The club extends its sincerest condolences to his wife Pam and the rest of his family.

Rob Hewett – Trustee

COVID 19 UPDATE

We have regrettably decided to close the clubhouse until the current lockdown is eased. We will be working to open as soon as possible. Please keep an eye out for further updates.

Helford River Sailing Club

COMMODORE’S REPORT

Despite the unprecedented year 2020 has turned out to be, surprisingly we have seen an increase in new members joining the cl ub. We’ve been lucky enough to employ Oliver Hassell as Club Steward. Ollie previously worked at the Prince of Wales in St. Martin and I think you’ll all agree that he offers a very warm welcome on arrival.

Tuesday’s Adult Sailing has been steady and Wednesday night’s Keel Boat Racing has seen a regular 4-6 boats throughout the summer season, with the sailors coming up to the clubhouse to enjoy a meal and a few drinks after their time on the water. My thanks go out to Sally and the junior sailing volunteers who have given up their spare time to ensure that our young sailors get to enjoy the river safely. Although we couldn’t host as we normally would, the Falmouth Week Regatta saw 116 boats in the water, which was a huge success.

I’d like to thank all the Committee for their hard work during this difficult year, but especially Tracey, Penny and Jane for their work in preparing the club ready to welcome you all back after our first lockdown. I’d also like to thank our temporary chefs Chris and Adam who stood in at short notice and have done a sterling job feeding all the hungry sailors. Also thanks to Ed and Dave for their continued commitment to keeping the pontoon in a good state of repair. And last of all my thanks go to Peter, Mike and Tracey for their support on the financial side of the club which has been vital, especially during this unusual year.

I would like to wish all members a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a healthy New Year.

End of season

Dear Members,

As the end of the season is fast approaching, I just wanted to send a quick reminder that we require all vessels to be removed from their moorings and the pontoon by Saturday 31st October 2020.

Many thanks,

Tracey

Sunday roasts are now back!

Now the weather is more autumnal and the club less busy, the inside of the clubhouse is now open for drinking and eating, including our classic Sunday roasts (which will be served on plates with proper cutlery!)

This has meant we have had to follow the health and safety regulations laid down by the Government.

The procedures now are:

Enter the club house by the balcony door wearing masks and sanitise your hands.The door to the front of the club will be locked to come through into the club but is available to exit in case of emergency. This is because of track and trace restrictions.Dress warmly as all the other doors and windows will need to be open to help with ventilation and control of the spread of the coronavirus.Ollie/ Becky or another member of staff will greet you and show you to a table, which is limited to 6 people.They will need to take your name and contact number for track and trace or you can use your NHS App and scan our QR code.They will take your order for drinks/food and serve them to you at the table.To use the toilet facilities, you need to follow the one-way system and wear your mask.Unfortunately, people need to stay at their tables and not mingle inside the clubhouse.When we serve food, we are encouraging members to book their table prior to coming in to eat as we only have limited tables.To book a table please either email [email protected] or call 01326 231460.

Thank you to all members for being respectful of others and following the Government rules

What’s happening at Your Club?

Since opening on 4th July, the Club has sprung back into life in spite of limited hours which are under constant review depending on demand. As the main summer season gets under way, our opening hours will increase and with that an enhanced menu.  For the moment we are still in the experimental stage of re-opening whilst complying with the covid regulations, so watch this space for further details!

Single-handed dinghies can be taken out by competent sailors and 3 wayfarers are in the water so that family groups can sail together. 

Don’t forget the annual May Cup dinghy race is being held this Sunday 19th with a forecast steady northerly 9-14kts and lots of sunshine (at the time of writing!).  This usually attracts lots of participants, let’s hope so this year.

Please use the dinghy WhatsApp group for booking out boats as we have a disinfection and cleaning routine in operation and not all boats are available at any one time. 

Covid Policy

For the reassurance of members and staff, we have invested in a so-called ‘fogging’ machine which can disinfect whole rooms and items against both viruses and bacteria with minimal disruption and without using harsh chemicals.Please follow the one-way system to the toilets marked by arrows and notices.For the moment, showers have to remain closed because of the need to clean between uses. As before a 2m distancing policy is in operation throughout the club premises.  Again, the Committee thank you for your patience over this extraordinary time – we aim to relax regulations and get back to normal as soon as it is considered safe to do so. 

We look forward to seeing you at the club and on the water – stay safe.

Club Dinghies

During these unusual times, the Committee are keen to enable you to use club dinghies at HRSC.  The RYA have advised us to proceed with caution, so as a first step we have decided to make club dinghies available to the Adult Sailing Group.

More info…

L’Aber Wrac’h

It is with regret that HRSC has had to cancel the annual L’Aber Wrac’h race.

Owing to the Covid 19 pandemic and current UK / French Government Quarantine restrictions HRSC is unable to run the Helford to L’Aber Wrac’h 2020 Race.

The race is always a huge event in the HRSC calendar and will be sorely missed by all those who take part each year in the actual race and the social event that precedes it.

The next Helford to L’Aber Wrac’h Race will take place on 25th June 2021.

We look forward to seeing you then.

HRSC Committee

GOOD NEWS

The 70 year old August Rock navigation buoy has been replaced this season by a brand new buoy, thanks to the generosity of Trinity House Charitable Trust.

It remains a starboard hand buoy and is lit green flash every 5 seconds .

Could we, the Helford River Navigational Aids Committee, who manage the buoys voluntarily, remind river users to remember all four navigation buoys are simply aids to navigation and you should be particularly careful near low water springs?

John Head
Chairman HRNAC

Drying moorings

The Club has 2 drying moorings suitable for boats up to 22ft available for rental.  They are situated a short distance from the end of the Club pontoon.  They will dry out on a big spring tide.

The cost is £440 for this season.

If you are interested in renting one of these moorings please email [email protected]

Thank you

SAILING REPORT

As is usual at this time of year the river gets to look a completely different place, where in the summer there is hardly a mooring not used, to now its just a few of the working fishing boats on their moorings. The summer has been favourable to sailing this year with few if any cancellations in any races, there were a few yacht races when we did wonder if we would ever get back to the mooring, thank goodness for the engine, and full credit to those who always sail to their moorings.

Dinghy racing has been well attended on most outings with two very good regattas run by Captain Dinghies and his team; the training taking place over the last few weeks of the season has been a great success thanks to Keith Wilkin and Linda, some rising stars in laser racing are benefiting gaining confidence and skills.

My own last sail of the season was a leisurely cruise up to Gull Rock and back with Andrew on Morgawr in mid October, a stunning day with a good steady WNW wind.

The junior sailing finished at the end of the summer holidays and was well attended, thanks must go to our great team of qualified instructors who turn up each week and give their time to teach the next generation of HRSC sailors.

I look forward to seeing many of you in the club at our events throughout the winter months.

CHRIS HOSKEN – REAR COMMODORE SAILING

THANK YOU

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the Lady Members who kindly donated the delicious cakes, scones, sandwiches sausage rolls and quiches for the regatta tea on Sunday! The tables were absolutely laden with homemade mouth-watering fayre to feed the hungry sailors! Thank you so much for all your help and generosity!

Kind Regards,

Penny Bolitho and Di Best

L’ Aber Wrac’h Race Report 2019

The 60th Helford to L’Aber Wrac’h Pursuit race saw the spirit of the race well and truly restored with 51 entries and 50 starters. 21 French and 30 UK yachts entered.

The first yachts crossed the start line at 11.30hrs, the last at 17.45hrs. They had a light breeze until the Manacles and then a good breeze until 21.00hrs when it disappeared until the Easterly filled in at 03.00 to 04.00 hrs in the morning. Those that went East caught the wind first.

Report and Photos

August Rock Buoy

The August Rock buoy Fl green 5sec is now back on station after its winter overhaul. It has been moved slightly [50 metres] and an update for waypoint purposes will be published soon.

The winter gales do cause concern and we have put down a new mooring block with eye and new chain with welded shackles, expensive but very necessary.

FIVE MILLION TIDES

Members may be interested in a new book by local author Christian Boulton.

‘Five Million Tides’ is a history of the Helford River from prehistoric times to today and describes ‘one of the most important waterways in Britain’.

Despite being mainland Britain’s most southerly haven, it has not always been a place of good fortune. Once a thriving seat of Celtic Christianity, it would end up more associated with villainous seafarers. Nor could it be always relied upon for sanctuary from storms, as the numerous graves of mariners in its village churchyards attest.

Available from Amazon.

Drying moorings

The Club has 3 drying moorings suitable for boats up to 22ft available for rental.  They are situated a short distance from the end of the Club pontoon.  They will dry out on a big spring tide.

The cost is £440 for this season.

If you are interested in renting one of these moorings please contact Penny at the Club office – 01326 231006 or email [email protected].

Thank you

Yoga Classes at HRSC

I am planning to start Yoga Classes again at HRSC on Friday mornings from 9.30am – 11am. The cost will be £54 for 6 sessions or £10 per individual session.

It is preferable if students can book for 6 sessions at a time but I understand that commitment is not always possible so you can also book in for single sessions, preferably in advance.

If you book for 6 sessions and have to miss one then you  are welcome to drop in to the St. Martin’s class at St. Martin’s village hall on a Wednesday to make up. This class is also 9.30am – 11am.

If you wish to try a class to see if it suits you then please drop in to either class.

All welcome – beginners and improvers

For more information or to make a booking please contact Fo Beresford

01326 221353 or email [email protected]

Club Slipway

The Club slipway will be closed to all vehicles from 17.30 to 20.30 on Friday evenings from May to September. This is for the safety of our junior sailors.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Membership Drive

This year the Committee is making a special effort to increase the membership of the Club. In particular we will be encouraging local residents to join.

With this in mind we will be taking out Temporary Event Notices, otherwise known as TENS licences for particular events. A TENS licence will allow non-members to attend the Club and purchase alcohol without being signed in by a Member. In other words it means that during these events the Club will open to non-members.

The first of these events will be the Big Spring Party on Saturday 21st April. ‘The Soundcasters’, a popular band from Kent, already known to many locals having played previously many times at The Shipwrights, will be headlining. Our new stewards Alex and Patrizia will be serving internationally inspired street food.

From Saturday May 26th to Friday 1st June the Club will be open to non-members. This will be a great opportunity to promote the Club at the start of the season. It will allow non-members to experience what the Club has to offer both on the water and in the clubhouse during a whole week. On the Saturday they will be able to try the activities we are organising for the ‘RYA Push the Boat Out’ event. You will be hearing a lot more about this event.

Invite your friends and neighbours so they can experience the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of HRSC.

We will ensure that non-members are aware that parking in the Club car park is only available for Members.

Angie Watson Vice Commodore

Commodore’s Report: Spring 2018

As many of you will be aware the tidal surge, caused by Storm Emma on 1st March, caused a lot of damage to the pontoon, the heart of the Club’s infrastructure. Then, the following day, a tree trunk was swept under the seaward pontoon. I am pleased to confirm that our insurers and the underwriters have reported that the loss is recoverable and have no objection to us authorising Falmouth Divers to commence work on the repairs, which we hope will start on Monday 26th March.
However the Club will be paying for elements considered to be part of general maintenance. Therefore we will be organising fundraising events to contribute towards this extra expenditure throughout the year.

I am pleased to see that our new stewards Alex and Patrizia are settling in so well. They are both good chefs and I am encouraged to see the Club is now busy with Members enjoying their food and drink.
I would like to thank all the Committee members for their support and hard work and wish all Members a successful and enjoyable year on and off the water.

OBITUARY – ALLEN BENNEY

Died peacefully 12.12.2017 AGED 70 YEARS

We are very sad to report that Allen Benney, who was a long-standing Member of the HRSC and served on the Committee for many years, has passed away peacefully at Fairholme Nursing Home.

Allen loved the Helford River and sailing was his passion, with a boat and mooring on the river for over 53 years. He was an active member of the Club from 1972; racing his various yachts throughout the years, both on the Helford and in Falmouth, especially enjoying the Falmouth Week Regatta and the Sunday Pursuit Series, and into the Autumn as a Member of Flushing Sailing Club. He was fiercely competitive and had a regular crew of friends who put up with his yelling and determination to ‘stand on!’ for over 30 years.

Allen served as Hon Treasurer for many years when the Club was experiencing financial difficulties and through his determination and fortitude, being very sound and honest he guided the Club out of its problems and into a safe financial footing. He was also Rear Commodore Admin. and Vice Commodore. It was thanks to Allen that our deep-water moorings were all updated with larger sinker blocks that he had made up and brought out in his tractor and trailer from his farm in Helston at his own expense.

Allen was generous to a fault and incredibly kind. He never liked to see anyone alone and was always the first person to welcome visitors to the Cub. When Jane was Commodore he introduced himself as the ‘Commodores Wife’ and enjoyed entertaining at the bar! He was an enormous support during Jane’s time as Commodore.

Allen served on the WCORA (West Coast Offshore Racing Association) Committee with Wally Royal who remembers their trips to Plymouth in his Land Rover with great fondness.

Allen took enormous pleasure and pride in taking Privateer 20 years ago across the Atlantic, via The Canaries and Cape Verde Islands to the Caribbean and back, via Bermuda and the Azores. He had wonderful friends who accompanied him both ways and they had a lot of fun.

The funeral will be held at Helston Methodist Chapel, Coinagehall Street on Friday 22 December at 1.00pm and afterwards at the Clubhouse from 3.00pm

JUNIOR SAILING 2017

We had a fantastic summer season on the water. Junior Sailing was at capacity again this year. All the sailors progressed on so much while having an amazing time. There were some challenging conditions to sail in this year but the sailors coped incredibly well and came away more
confident in their abilities. There were new friendships formed and new challenges reached. I’d like to thank all the volunteers for their help this year. Without their dedication and time Junior Sailing couldn’t happen. We will be celebrating Junior Sailing at Posh Nosh, the date of which is to be confirmed soon.

Nick Glossop – Captain Juniors

YACHT REPORT

I write this towards the end of October and almost all of us have got our boats off their moorings, out of the water and safely tucked away in barns and boatyards for the winter. The nights are closing in and the season is almost over.

Nick Gough – Joint Captain Yachts

COMMODORE’S REPORT 2017

Now that most of the boats and yachts are on dry land for safety over the winter season, and waiting for repairs and servicing to be done before launching again for next summer which I hope goes well for all Members, we have time to reflect on the season which hopefully we have all enjoyed.

The Club has been very popular this year and our new stewards have done extremely well. Word has been spreading up and down the coast about the great atmosphere and food at the Club. As a result of this we have had visits from many visiting yachtsmen and women, other sailing clubs and South West Gaffers to name but a few, all enjoying the Club facilities. Members have also been making the Club really busy this year, so much so that it has been necessary to buy extra seating for the balcony. Not only have the clubhouse and balcony been really busy but all the activities the Club runs have gone very well this season. Our Social Committee has arranged a really good social calendar for 2017/2018 and Members should keep a close eye on the Club emails and also this Newsletter for details. The ladies on the Social Committee have done us proud this year.

You will see from this Newsletter that all Membership, Mooring and Berthing fees will increase for 2018. Last year the fees were not increased because of the poor service offered to Members due to the lack of stewards. The increase for next year is to keep in line with inflation and more importantly to keep the Club on a sound financial footing. If you look around at the other local sailing clubs you will find that they do not offer as many activities or sailing boats that can be used free of charge, so that Members still have a good deal financially. In order to secure any stewards for this year the Club had to subsidise them as another year without stewards would have badly damaged the Club’s reputation and been a financial disaster. As the Club has been extremely busy this summer the Committee feels that it was a good decision. The winter season is also always difficult for stewards to make a living and they lose most of the profit made in the summer, thus the need for a subsidy. This arrangement is however up for negotiation in December.

As from the AGM on 19th January 2018 you will have a new Commodore who I hope will enjoy the job as much as I have and I am sure he or she will make a great success of it. All is looking good for 2018 here at the Club and better weather next summer would be a bonus.

Finally I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a successful New Year.

Please bail out your boats

As we have had so much rain recently can you please make sure you bail out your boats on the pontoon on a regular basis.  The extra weight of all the water causes stress to the fingers on the pontoon.

Also a reminder that all boats need to be removed from Club premises by 31st October.

Thank you

Dave Blanning – Captain Moorings

Thank you

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the Members, tea helpers, Committee, safety boat crew, liberty boat crew, office, kitchen and bar staff for making Sunday such a huge success. Our reputation as the best day of Falmouth Week has certainly  been upheld.

The tables were groaning with the quantity of delicious tea that was donated and there was not a crumb left!

The Club has received many congratulations on the hospitality provided.

Thank you – we could not have done it without you

Anchors and ground tackle

In the last week anchors and ground tackle have gone missing from the Committee Boat and Fun Yak without the knowledge of Captain Safety Boats. Chris Hosken makes a considerable effort to maintain the boats so that members can sail in safety. It is vitally important that the boats are maintained and carry the correct equipment. As an RYA recognised training centre the Club and its equipment have to pass a rigorous inspection by the RYA and the lack of anchors on safety boats would result in a fail and curtail of Junior Sailing.

Accidents do happen – for instance throwing the anchor without ensuring it is tied to the boat – embarrassing it may be but someone needs to be told so that it is replaced.

Please note that the anchors and tackle at the Club be they on boats or sailing marks are there for a reason. Should you consider such items are required elsewhere ask your team leader – just don’t do what you think is right as it impacts others.

Should anyone have any information concerning the whereabouts of the missing items please contact me [email protected]

Remarkable Handicapping for L’Aber Wrac’h 2017

The final finish times for the race are attached and show that the first 13 boats finished within 50 minutes of one another over a distance a little under 100 miles. This is a wonderful feat of handicapping on the part of our very experienced Handicap Committee of Wally Royall, Ian Wort, and Terry Pascoe.

Congratulations to all the competitors who made it a special occasion. I hear that our French friends are already getting very excited about the 60thAnniversary race in 2019 – which I suspect might be somewhat special!

L’Aber Wrac’h 2017 FINAL FINISHING TIMES

|

L’Aber Wrac’h 2017

This year’s race got off in fine style on Saturday following a 24 hour postponement due to poor weather conditions. The delay meant the loss of some entrants owing to work commitments but on the day 16 boats started. The French contingent made the running but that old campaigner, Wally Royall (in his 90th year) was the first Helford boat to cross the line – congratulations Wally!

Wednesday Evening Yacht Racing

One of our members who sails a Contessa 26 is very interested in joining our Wednesday evening Yacht Race Series but would like some similar yachts to race against in addition to our current 707 competitors.

Please can we encourage anyone who has a similar yacht to join us on a Wednesday evening to make our racing more inclusive and varied. Please contact me on [email protected] if you are able to come along.

Thank you

Adult Dinghy Sailing

The Helford River Sailing Club is starting Adult Dinghy Sailing every Saturday during the summer season beginning at 2.00 pm on 8th July.  The start time will alternate between 2.00pm and 10.00am depending on the tide. Our aim is to attract new members to the club by offering an opportunity to Try Sailing a Wayfarer or our new Drascombe Lugger with an experienced club sailor.

All existing club members with or without dinghy experience will be most welcome to join us. Most importantly we need to build up a list of experienced sailors and safety boat crews who are able to help.

This will be promoted in the West Briton as an opportunity to “Try Sailing” which, as you know, has taken place for many years and with great success on Tuesday nights.

If you would like to take part or want to help, please email Angie Watson at [email protected]

Thank you

Work party needed

A work party is needed to help put boards along the pontoon to stop the dinghies being pushed underneath and sustaining damage.  This is a very important task and we would therefore ask anyone who has a dinghy on the pontoon to help out if possible.  The more volunteers the less time it will take.  Please email Dave Blanning, Captain Moorings if you can help.

Wayfarers are out

Dave Sumner would like to join me in thanking all those that formed muster to retrieve the Club Wayfarer dinghies from the water on Saturday. In addition to the strong turnout from our active Adult Sailing section,  assistance from  Dave Church; Dan Flunder; Stephen Brooks; Keith Goy; Mark Ibotson (apologies to anyone I have left out) made for an orderly and quick haul out.

Eight Wayfarers were recovered from the water in a somewhat testing easterly slop by a team not afraid to get their feet wet. Two trailers were utilised to shuttle the boats up the ramp where another team parked them up. Not content with getting them out of the water members then pressure washed the boats, removed all gear to the shed, before un-stepping the masts.

Dave Sumner and his ‘team’ have a full programme of maintenance planned over the winter and any offer of help would be appreciated.

Adult sailing on Tuesday evenings (and socially throughout the winter) is a great way to make new friends and enjoy the beautiful Helford River – why not give it a go!

It was good working with you all.

Thanks

Regatta Day

A big thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday’s Regatta Day such a success.

To everyone who made food contributions for the teas, the barbecue helpers and the washer uppers, the bar staff, the liberty boat crews and everyone else who gave up their time to help out.

Many thanks again –

We couldn’t have done it without you!

L’Aber Wrac’h 2016

L’Aber Wrac’h 2016

“Twenty five boats set out on Friday 24th June for L’Aber Wrac’h in a fresh SW breeze making for a fast crossing. The previous evening participating crews and members celebrated at the Champagne Reception where a good time was had by all. Crews received excellent hospitality on arrival in L’Aber Wrac’h and Carol Lawrence worked her magic in collating the results and prizes. Winning Boat ‘Farsteo’ – Monsieur Cochet. First British yacht was ‘Mrytle’ – Dave Whitmarsh. The youngest competitor was Ali Gill on Buster. Carol also gave a ‘Super soaker’ to ‘Diomedes’ – Ed Osman as this was a youngish crew and their 1st Helford L’AberWrac’h race. Rob Hweitt, as he has done for many years, gave his speech proudly in French. The L’Aber Wrac’h Race has a proud tradition within the Club and is an excellent way to participate in a channel crossing in company in a friendly competitive way. Hopefully next year we can increase the numbers that take part.”

Helford River Navigational Aids Committee Update

To all HRSC members from Helford River Navigational Aids Committee

Just an update on the navigational buoys in the river as at June 2016.

August Rock buoy replaced with a “new” buoy. New Light that is longer range. Green flash every 5 seconds
( Picked it up 3.2 miles out on a clear night at beginning of June)

Voose buoy rebuilt in stainless steel and base repainted.

Car Croc replaced with brand new east cardinal buoy. In addition it is now lit. Flash Quick (3) 10 seconds.

Bar buoy. Cleaned and repaired

A special thanks to HRSC for their help and to all those individuals who have contributed. If you have been meaning to contribute financially but just not got down to it, then it isn’t too late! There are continual ongoing running costs for this voluntary committee.

Email John Head (chairman HRNAC) at [email protected] for details

Last weekend’s cruise to Fowey 

Last weekend’s cruise in company to Fowey was most enjoyable despite the lack of wind on Friday and Saturday.
 
Friday’s gentle float in the sunshine was very pleasant and we all had a very good afternoon and evening in Fowey, all looking lovely in the evening light.
 
Many thanks to those of you who joined us and commiserations to those who had to cancel at the last minute for various social and work obligations. We will certainly repeat the venture later in the summer.
 
I will be away cruising in Brittany for the rest of this month but if anyone wishes to organise a cruise in my absence that would be great.
 
Let’s hope for good sailing weather in the weeks to come.
 
Nick Gough
Captain Yachts
