    COMMODORE’S REPORT

    What a fantastic season we have had at the sailing club, I would like to thank all the staff, committee members and people behind the scenes for all their hard work and commitment.

    The L’Aber W’rach 60th Anniversary Pursuit Race was a huge success. This year saw the spirit of the race well and truly restored with 51 enteries and 50 starters with 21 French and 30 UK yachts entering. A big thank you to every- one who was involved with the preparations and to those who participated in the race.

    We welcomed Tracey this year to the office staff, she has taken over from Penny and Helen. I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Penny and Helen for their hard work and Tracey for her already invaluable input and support in the office.

    I would like to thank Tom Moore, Finn Johnson, Megan Pascoe and their team for a very successful summer season in the bar and restaurant. Both visitors and members have commented on the welcoming and friendly atmosphere at the club this year.

    During the winter, new member Lisa Walker will be serving delicious Sunday roasts and winter fayre to support the successful calendar of social events organised by Di Best and the Social Sub Committee. Keep an eye on our website for details www.helfordriversc.co.uk

    Finally I would like to wish all members a very happy and peaceful christmas and a prosperous new year.

    The Helford River Sailing Club will be running RYA Powerboat Level 2 Courses during the season.  Could anyone who is interested in doing the course please let Angie Watson know so the parties involved have an idea of numbers?

    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.
