Bournville DF / RG Event 29th March

There is another joint DF / RG event coming up next Sunday the 29th March at the great Bournville Club in Birmingham. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome and a hot cup of tea and the racing is sure to be fun and competitive too.

Details are on the poster below and remember that everything will be an hour earlier than you think it is as the clocks jump forward an hour. No excuses for being late, you have been warned!

Charity Event Pulls in the Pounds!

Coalhouse Fort MBC hosted a Charity Event in aid of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust with the aim of raising at least £100.00 on Sunday 15th March 2015.

17 intrepid skippers entered on a day that was overcast with occasional rain and a bitter wind from the NNE. There was no entry fee, but all donations went to the fund and so far over £200.00 pounds have been raised with more promised.

ND Winter Series Finale Inbound!

Although it’s Mothers Day on Sunday there is the final event of the ND winter series at West Lancs YC taking place which is, arguably, more important than Mothers Day!

With the usual superb dining arrangements in place and some good afternoon cake available it’s a wonder there is any racing at all, however there should be around 12 races over the course of the day on the great sailing water at the club. Moderate ENE breeze is forecast which will make for some shifty breeze coming over the islands.

If you haven’t yet experienced the terribly hospitable sailing at WLYC you should really make the effort to take a trip over to the club on Sunday. Briefing at 0945, racing from 1000.
