A Picture a Day.

Oops almost forgot today as daughter number 2 was using the computer for her on-line exams at my normal log on time!

 Anyway, here is one to remind us we have a load of windsurf equipment on site so lets hope Andrew Simpson Centre can get some new windsurfers up and running when we get back on the water!

A Picture a Day.

It was Megan's turn in the Eric Twiname championships on Saturday in the 4.7 VR Inshore fleet. She had 4 great races with lots of tactical moves required to move up the leader board. She was 3rd in her heat placing her 6th overall. A few have questioned why her VR boat is 'Silver Lady' which goes back to early regattas where she always came second to get the silver and Richard at K2O nicknamed her the 'Silver Lady'.

A Picture a Day.

Millie would have been at Rutland this weekend competing for the Midland Topper zone in the RYA Eric Twiname championships, instead the racing was run through VR Inshore. There were 4 races with 3 to count. Millie's practice in the Bartley series seemed to pay off as she got some great starts in her races and read the shifts and pressure well. She was in a group of 16 sailors and was 3rd in her group. When all 65 competitors had completed their racing the scores were consolidated and Millie was placed 13th overall and 2nd Midland sailor - well done Millie.

VR Inshore password issue

For those trying to join the racing last night it was a bit of a struggle. I could communicate with those on Whatsapp so we captured a few but not everyone. I also posted the password as bartley1 in the race title and will do this again if there are issues another time.

I have tested the custom race last night and this morning and it all seems to be running smoothly with the usual password so we will continue to use bartley as usual from tonight.

If there are issues again I will use bartley1 and post on whatsapp and in the race name.

I think the issue arose because they were upgrading the VR app to include Aukland and remove an issue where race scores showed 1st place twice on the leader board. I logged the first race but then it rebooted and the custom race was gone and it wouldn't accept the password. Hopefully this is a one-off and we will be back to normal tonight.

I guess there are more ways than 1 to propel a boat (what are we teaching them in K2O!). Thanks to Jonathan North for this photo.

A Picture a Day.

Normally we would be into the Tuesday evening series now. There is nothing quite like the dash from work, the hurried rigging, then forgetting the trials of daily life with an hour sailing with friends followed by a catch up in the club house. The perfect tonic.

K2O was scheduled to start at the weekend introducing the next generation to the enjoyment and benefits of sailing as a sport. Lets hope we can still get some training in this year. In the meantime here are the cheerful sails usually seen on Saturday mornings in the summer.

A Picture a day and a big thank you to Newman University Security Staff.

Today we have Garry ready to go full stretch to level off the Supernova.

A big thank you to Newman University Security who informed us of further fly tipping earlier in the week. This time they got really good CCTV footage of the culprit who happened to be the same person as previously and will give the police much more to go on. They also raised it with Birmingham City Council who have  cleared the mess away so the club is back to normal again. We are very grateful for the support from Newman University on this matter and the assistance they have given to the club and the Police and council.

He sails a Laser, we wins a lot, he maintains the club grounds, he is the infamous John Ling! (But you may not recognise him when he comes back as he has been seen cultivating a sailors beard since the lockdown)
