Cadets – Matt Dear Race at TEYC Cancelled

Published by under Cadets

Due to winds of 21+ mph with gusts of 31 to 33 mph the Matt Dear has been cancelled.
I have not yet heard from the organisers of the Interclub Race on Sunday, but as the forecast is for even higher gusts, I presume they will also cancel.
I am not advising any Cadets to sail in these conditions.
The meeting this evening (Friday) is also cancelled.
I will be taking the Cadet Training/Races the following weekend, 6th October. This is last one of the season, so I intend to make the final races something special. It will be the CAKE Competition. 
I am therefore, asking for any parents, possible with their child’s help to bake a Cake for the event. We are looking for a total of 4 cakes, which will be presented to the winners, who will then share with everyone else! Please let me know if you can help?

Cadets! Bart’s Bash briefing

Published by under Cadets

Cadets and Parents,

Bart’s Bash briefing is at 11:30 on Sunday (optional)

All cadets welcome who would like to sail.

Meeting at the sail training room.
Nick is going to do the briefing about the Bart’s Bash.
I am going to do the briefing about the Junior Bart’s Bash.
Be prepared, change and rig your boats.

This is a world wide race dedicated to the memory of Andrew Simpson (Bart), olympic English sailor, who lost his life in a tragic accident when training for the America Cup in 2013. He won gold medal in the Star class with his friend, Iain Percy in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and also won silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics. He was the crew. He had brilliant instinct where to go, was also a great tactician. He studied at the University College London and gained a degree in Economics. He started sailing like all of you as a cadet and had many great friends in sailing. The Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation is supporting Youth Sailing. Donations are being collected word wide.

Please, pay tribute to Bart by trying your best, with fair sailing, respecting your partner and others on the water. Also consider being kind to younger sailors, showing good example and offering support and advice.

And – first of all – enjoy sailing and being with friends.

See you on the water:
Andras
