I would be grateful if you could keep me informed,
please, email me (coming / not coming).
Help will be given to those who ask for it.
Sailors new to racing are welcome.
No particular experience is needed, just the desire to join us.
I would like to see more teenagers on the water,
would like to encourage them to sail the Laser 4.7.
Please, talk to me, if interested.
Club Feva is available to sail for those, who would like to have the challenge.
We had our first Pico race this season today.
Pico race 23/04/2017 Sunday, start on the water at 10:00 HW: 10:50 BST
wind: around 8 miles/h, steady, onshore (160)
tide turning and going out soon
Thanks for all the helpers, parents and John on Polly.
We had 9 boats on the water, with 14 sailors. 1 Tera, 8 Picos, most of them regulars.
Thanks for the race officer, Wes to set up the club race course on a way that we could us the use the area around club mark 3.
Our new cadet RIB (Sea Safe 9) was very helpful (I used her first time).
Very reactive, good manoeuvrability, quiet, I could get close, easy to talk to cadets.
Many thanks to all who fought for our cadet RIB and made this possible. Club funds very well spent – I think, long term investment.
There is a plan to store her in the dinghy park, under the racks, locked. That will make launching a lot easier.
Course: Trapezoid course 2017 (with rectangular starting box including club mark 3)
Drill 1: figure of 8 around the start line
– start box start 1 minute count down
Sailing around the race course without the pressure of racing once again.
Drill 2: sailing around the start box
Game: collecting tennis balls
I think all had fun. Everyone completed at least one race, great performance of the girls, first time Pico racing.
– those who were outside the start box at the start sailed at the back of the fleet
– Overstanding layline (tide)
Suggested points for discussion:
– how to make a good start
– how to make speed
– upwind leg tactics (“the beat as a race against time”), laylines
We don’t often get a chance for all sailors to get together and have a chat about sailing with like minded people, so this Thursday evening will be that first opportunity.
Meet some of the people you often just sail past, watch and chat about sailing, chat to others how you could improve yourself, talk about the plans for the year or just help us have more evenings like this.
Due to a large number of cadets participating in Stage 2 sail training yesterday and the current water temperature there will be no Oppie Beach Club for new sailors or Cadets today.
Conditions permitting, we will start Oppie Beach club on Saturday 29th April.
The club boats are of course still available should you wish to sail today, just help yourself and remember to wash everything down and put it away after you. lub safety boats will be covering main racing, there will be no Cadet Rib patrolling the beach.
If there are ever any problems with club Optimists please let me know or if its Pico related, tell Nick Cotgrove.
Enjoy the beach and water today.
