Dinghy racing

At the HRSC we have an active dinghy racing fleet which races most Thursday evenings with a 1830 start gun and on Sundays at around high tide. All are welcome to take part either in your own boat or one of the club boats (if booked). So come and join in, we are a friendly bunch with a wide range of abilities, some out for a sail with a purpose, others training hard to win !! 

At present based at the club there is a  Europe, Solo, Wayfarers and 10 + Lasers, along with the club lasers, RS Fevas, RS Visions, Toppers, Fusions, Opies and Wayfarers.

If you are interested come along or contact captain of dinghies Duncan Skingley

Dinghy Racing: Bart’s Bash

High Water at 2:36 pm

No more Sunday Dinghy racing for August.

Hi Everyone
Due to the large number of people out on the Helford and down at the club which is great to see after a quiet  start to the season. The decision has had to be made not to do any more Sunday dinghy racing for August this year. We hope to restart Sundays racing in September when there are less people about. This is to help ease congestion at the club and for the safety and enjoyment of all those on the water.
Thursday evenings dinghy racing will continue as normal, 18.00 on the water, 18.30 start racing, as this seems to be a quieter time.
Hope to see you all out on the water (maybe not all at once!! ) 

Dinghy racing for the week ahead !!

Hi All 
After a windy Sunday morning, racing was abandoned !! So lets hope Thursday evening is better but early forecasts are giving 16-23mph SE so we may again have to cancel 🙁 I will try and keep you all posted. But we are aiming for 1800 on water and a 1830 start.

Next Sunday is looking good though !!! 16.30 start so get on the water for 16.00.

If anyone is on facebook we have a messenger group that I can add you to for a more instant msg on conditions and events. ether email me or msg and I will add you. 

Hopefully we will have the club email system up and running again soon 🙂
hope to see you out sailing

My first experience of racing was in a Shrimper belonging to HRSC member Simon Sugrue. Simon had kindly asked me to join him as his crew, racing off Mylor and St. Mawes on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings in the Carrick Roads. He was a great teacher and shared with me many tips on how to win races! It was then I realised what fun racing can be and how much there is to learn.
