Saturday Sunshine

Nice to see so many enjoying the sunshine on Saturday with a swift half at the bar to cool down afterwards. Looks like even better conditions next weekend with sun and a nice breeze so why not come down and cool off with a sail and a refreshing drink.

Laser Success at Bristol Corinthian

 

Building winds greeted the team of visiting Lasers to Bristol Corinthian but by the time it came to start the back to back 3 races the wind shifted, died and then filled in 20” degrees left. So the PRO had his work cut out to relay the course.

Race 1; Jeremy maintained his previous bullet off line starts and powered off and lead to the first buoy but by the bottom of the Olympic trapezoid course the fleet were all over him and back on the beat john overtook. But on the following downwind leg the leading bunch get interwoven with the Solos and this gave Neil Crosby the chance to charge through. By the next leg it was nip and tuck to the line with Neil taking honours, and john and Robin Pitt close behind. Meanwhile Graham Royle was fighting hard with Local man Simon Beck and doing really well.

Second race john got a clean start and held it to the gun. Whilst Jeremy Higson was always there but had a tough battle against Robin Pitt who finally came in close behind for second.

This meant it was wide open for second, third and fourth sailors places, so race three was important to get away with a clean start. John and Jeremy took an early lead and this combination finished in that order followed by Robin Pitt and Neil Crosby.

This meant there was a tie in points with all three of them on 5 net. But on the low points system uses the result of the last race so final positions were.

1st John G Ling 2 pts

2nd Neil Crosby 5pts

3rd Jeremy Higson 5pts

4th Robin Pitt 5pts

5th Simon Beck 10pts

6th Graham Royle 12pts

K2O kicks off with RYA level 1 and 2 courses

 

K2O kicks off in earnest this Saturday morning as Bartley's ever popular junior and youth club starts the training season. This year we have 2 groups (and a waiting list) for our level 1 and 2 courses and the usual faces returning for the level 3 and 4 sessions throughout the spring and summer months. We have 3 new members of our instructor team all of whom have progressed through the K2O club themselves and are now learning what it is like to be on the other side of the training program - great experience for them, great resource for the club, and they can use their qualification to travel further afield should they wish; everybody wins!

Please extend the usual warm welcome to any new faces you see at the club and help them find their way around if they are looking lost.

Free Whistles!

 

As a follow on to our feature on safety a number of members got in touch to reinforce the importance of sailors carrying a whistle to draw attention when in trouble. To help us all a number of whistles have been left in the OOD hut for members to take 'free of charge' if they do not already have one. First come first served - when they are gone they are gone so pick one up quickly!
