Current series

We are still stuck in the "changeable" weather pattern. Friday 16th: at the close of a miserable day, just three boats started the race, and Carol won, to move into the series lead. Sunday 16th August started wet, but cleared up before the start of racing. The wind was blustery, swinging anywhere between SSW and NW (averaging WSW, as forecast). It was especially strong around the middle of the day, but fell away later. Lots of capsizes, but enjoyable for those who survived. Leading places were shared between Andy, Richard and Steve, in various combinations.

Once again we saw a good number of Juniors taking part, and some even getting the better of experienced seniors. A good sign for the future?

Programme update

The August mini-series is nearly over; we have just three handicap races next Sunday, to complete the series. The following week we are into September, and we move on to the Autumn programme. In the Friday evening handicap series we have two more dates, 23rd and 30th Aug, then no more Friday racing until next year.

See the full programme here.

2019 Handicaps

Most of our handicap numbers are the same as the RYA's 2019 recommendations; we make an upward adjustment for a small number of classes (mainly those with PNs below 1000) for which the local conditions make the RYA figures unrealistic.

The full list can be seen HERE.
