We are progressing well with Cadet week plans. This year we are launching a new group but want to ensure we have sufficient RIB and Support boat cover.
Currently we require an additional 2 RIBS.
Should you know of anyone who would be willing to lend a suitable craft to the club for the week of the 20th August - on the understanding that it would only be helmed by experienced and qualified personnel – please can you forward their details.
Throughout the winter we have run organised coaching on Cadet nights, this would not have been possible without the expert guidance of our coaches all of whom provided sessions which were all extremely useful, interesting, educational and above all fun.
I would like to thank Rupert, Mike Thomason, Ken Herve, Mark Petty-Mayor, Johnno Gillies and Alex Farrell for delivering such excellent sessions.
We are finalising plans for the next few months – which we hope will now include outdoor and water based activities.
The final winter session is this Thursday, Mike will be outlining how to rig a Pico and no doubt explaining how to tune it to ensure you stand the best chance of winning TOPS races this year.
We look forward to seeing you then.
yes its that time of year for ALL members to come along to a free party and enjoy a day with your friends making our club look fresh for the year ahead.
Sunday the 1st April from 9am
Its not an April fools, it is real.
so please come along and help, plenty to do.

I hope all of you have had a pleasant winter and are now eager to get back out on the water for this coming season, if any of you managed to get down to the Dinghy show at the weekend it was very informative and a good day out enough to wet the appetite for this coming year.
It’s that time of year again when we have new members coming into the club and fellow sailors deciding they want new challenges sailing different boats, if you are intending on selling your Pico can you please let me know so that I can keep a list of boats for sale ready for when I have an enquiry. I have four Pico’s on my list currently and hope that these can go to members within Thorpe Bay so we can keep the fleet together. We have a growing number of RS Tera’s and Optimists at the club so if you are intending on sailing one of these boats and are unsure where to get one then please contact me.
On another note I don’t know if you have all seen, but Mike Beresford our new Cadet Representative is holding a meeting at the club this Thursday at 8pm to discuss the T.O.P series, Cadets and Cadet week for this coming year and to get feedback from you all. If you didn’t attend Sundays meeting (which was very productive) please try and attend this meeting as we appreciate all feedback whether it is good or bad so that we can continue to have a thriving Cadet section within the club.
The sailing instructions for the T.O.P series will be sent out to you all within the next few weeks ready for the first series start in May. Remember if you have any friends who aren’t current Pico, RS Tera or Optimist owners who wish to participate within this series then please give them my details and I can add them to my mailing list.
See you at the club

FROZEN SHEETS OPEN MEETING 27 DECEMBER 2011
The Race Committee announce that the previously published results were calculated in error not in accordance with the Racing Rules of Sailing and the Sailing Instructions. The error is now remedied with the publication of correct results.
The Sailing Instructions state the following:
1. Unless the number of rounds was signalled in advance then after an appropriate sailing time has elapsed International Code Flag S would be displayed and boats would be finished when they next passed through the finish line.
2. Scoring would be calculated on the basis of average lap times.
3. Results would be calculated on the basis of average lap times.
After International Code Flag S had been raised, boats were finished, and the times recorded, as they next passed the finishing line. In calculating the published results the time of raising Code Flag S was reduced by a few minutes compared with the actual time of raising the flag which resulted in the last lap of 5 boats being excluded when calculating the corrected times. This was undertaken in order to make an adjustment because two classes of boat with the same PN (49er and 29er) had each been split at the time of raising the flag.
This has been reviewed. This method of adjustment of average lap times has not been used previously by the organising authority and is not part of suggested practice by the RYA, and is not therefore in accordance with the Rules or Sailing Instructions. The published results were incorrect and have now been amended.
