Dinghy Sailing

Saturday’s race was a cold affair, with a gentle breeze always threatening to strengthen. The two fifteens sailed best to the conditions with Kennedy and Serena taking first, followed by Tommy and Roland.

Following the race we had a productive meeting in front of the fire and discussed this years remaining fixtures and made plans for next season.


Three races are scheduled during December:


Turkey Race – Saturday 8th December

Warning Signal 13:25

This traditional race is a great opportunity to win a prize in time for Christmas.


      • 1st Prize : £40 Kearney’s Voucher
      • 2nd Prize: £20 Kearney’s Voucher


      • 1st Prize : £20 Cameron’s Voucher
      • 2nd Prize : £10 Cameron’s Voucher

Bar Race – Saturday 15th December

Warning Signal 13:25

This is the last competitive race of the season which is followed by a sailors party in the bar.

Christmas Fun Race – Friday 28th December

Warning Signal 12:55

The team pico relay race will make a return over the Christmas holidays. Four teams of seniors and juniors of all abilities will be drawn from a hat on the Friday morning. Nominations for the team captains are accepted now so get in touch!

The captains have two jobs;

1) Ensure we’ve got a big turnout

2) Sort out the team fancy dress costume. (The costume will be used as the relay baton so some careful consideration is required, a mankini is probably not a great idea)

Hot drinks followed in the bar with the presentation of lots of fun prizes.


The fun race will conclude this years dinghy racing, however we have big plans for next year. We aim to start the season on Saturday 16th March with a team racing series running each Saturday into spring. Plans for this are already under way and we’ll provide more updates over the next few months.
