Well done the Wayfarers!!

A message form Brian Brooks:  Collin Shepherd and his colleague John Lethbridge (of Fishermen’s Friends fame) set off from Sennen Beach, Cornwall, at 08.30 this morning Thursday) and , in their Wayfarer, set sail for the Isles of Scilly. Apart from encountering some very large waves on a part of their journey the whole trip was made without a single tack and they arrived on the beach at the Isles of Scilly Sailing Club (St Mary’s) at just after 14.00 hours. The mean speed of the Wayfarer was 5 knots , with a maximum speed of 8.6 knots achieved during the rough part of the passage.

Having spoken with them the most I could get out of Colin re their journey was praise for the Wayfarer dinghy as it behaved so well in looking after their safety.

Two more of our colleagues; John Kelly and Mike Higgins are setting out tomorrow (Friday) on the same journey in a Wayfarer so as to link up with Colin and John on arrival.

The return journey is planned for early next week after they have sailed to the various other Islands that make up the Scilly’s.

Well done lads.

Commodore's Blog

The summer marches on and as we pass the Solstice we are reminded to make the most of the longer evenings with sailing on Wednesdays and Thursdays and to be involved in the busy weekend schedule.

We hosted the RS Feva Inland Championships and with a strong force 4, gusting 30 knots, witnessed some extraordinary sailing and had a great deal of fun.  Alice Edmonds and Louis Gibbs finished an amazing 6th in a fleet of 55 amongst a number of young sailors carrying sponsorship and a level of backup that was close to professional.

We are being interviewed by BBC Radio Bristol this coming Saturday as a part of their regular sports programme which is aimed at raising the profile of the sport and good publicity for the club.  We have membership spaces available and it would be great to fill them over the coming months.

The club really is a lovely place to be over the summer weekends and even if not sailing, please come down for a coffee and a little bit of sun and fun.

Junior Race Training

The club has organised race training across 4 junior and youth classes over the next 2 months.  All the training, with the one exception of the 29er training, is suitable for those just starting to race, up to RYA squad level. All sessions are run by RYA Qualified professional coaches, most of whom have had significant success at National & International level.  There's a couple of ex-National Champions and Head Coaches in the list.  See the club training calendar for details.
