Topper Worlds and Nationals 2015
Chew sailors at the Topper Worlds and Nationals.
CVLSC mentoring events for safety boat helms.
Would you like to update and refresh your RIB handling and rescue skills before your next safety boat duty at Chew? The Safety Boat mentor team are planning to run 2 mentoring event days on Saturdays 19th and 26th September. Most of us don’t do a safety boat duty often enough to fully keep up our skills. Advice on rescue techniques improves with time and most of us could benefit from a refresher. The added experience and confidence may also make the safety boat duty more enjoyable.

Meanwhile in Pwllheli Derian and Andy Scott won a race at the fireball worlds and ended up First Lady helm and 15th overall. Charlie and Will Maunder also "getting better and better " through the regatta.

As I faced Matthew Hoggard in the opening over of an exhibition T20 in Taunton a few weeks ago, I realized what it was like to be so far out of my comfort zone that the cricket was barely recognizable. In 6 balls 5 I didn’t see and the last I hit for 4 so there was a least some endorsement of my efforts and thus a good experience.
Sailing is the same and offers progressive challenges to all of us regardless of our capability and if you are minded to improve, then moving beyond the comfort zone is important. We have the September RYA courses coming up which for some is an opportunity to improve and beyond that the prospect of some great winter sailing and for those that are interested even some windsurfing, so keep making the most of your membership and don’t let a slight change in temperature put you off as comfort zones are there to be extended.
Barts Bash 2 is on 20 September and there is no excuse not to have everyone on the water for another huge fun race. Register now and don’t forget to pledge £5 to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in doing so or alternatively donate on the day as we had over 100 boats on the water last year and it would be great to do the same again.
