Youth Sailing Day

What a fantastic morning the kids had on the water at Frensham.  The sun seemed to bring everyone down to the club in great numbers. With entries numbering over 46 boats the challenge was on to start the first race on time at 0950 hours.

The 303 and oppies started together first, leading the way was Tom and John Brooker in a 303 up to the last few minutes when Ian Cherill was reeling them in one by one up to the last minute and won the race. Closely followed by Molly & Emily Spiers in a cadet.

Second race was game on as it seemed that everyone was a bit nervous on the start line for the first race.  The 303 and Oppies started in no wind first but the cadet and RS Teras when they started had a light breeze which meant that they over took the slower boats earlier on in the race.  Louis Mellor won the race.

Third race saw the wind disappear; the smell coming from the BBQ on to the race course meant we had a very short race first to buoy eight. Ben in the RS Teras won the race followed by the Tom & John Brooker in the 303.

BBQ Lunch was held for all sailors and parents which went down really well.

RS Tera Nationals 2014

On 22nd August two of our keen young RS Tera Sailors (Ralph Neville & Laura Hardie) ventured North to Derwent Reservoir for what was to be for both of them their first ever Nationals as Helms  in this thriving new RS Tera Sport Class.

The competition looked tough with 103 sailors taking part and a forecast of light to tricky airs to start with, building to a strong breeze finish on the last day.

The two of them faired extremely well placing 18th and 44th after day one. This improved day 2 moving up the score sheet to 14th and 33rd respectively which left the final day to complete the championships. 

The last day started off with a fresh breeze and launching to a music playlist from the Worlds which was a really novel idea and appeared to help some of the children relax a little for the final days racing as they danced down the slipway to tunes.

Come the first race and breeze had increased to a fresh 18-20Knts and this slowly built througout the day touching 25knts at times. This was quite normal for Derwent apparantly, but for some sailors, just too tough to compete. Our sailors however, toughed it out and completed all three races and completed a very succsseful first championship for them both placing 22nd and 38th respectively. Great sailing you two, roll on the end of season champs where Frensham hope to field an even stronger squad!
