Sunday’s Frostbite was another windy, sunny morning with yet more fantastic racing conditions luring a double figure attendance to the start line despite the wooly hat weather and the East North Easterly wind that was gusting 24knots at times.
James Rusden (Radial) blew everyone away from start to finish claiming races 5&6 both across the line and after correction.
Alan Tarrant (Radial) and Ken Fowler (Aero 7) did their best to chase him down but ended up settling for 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Ben and Sophie Schooling (RS Vision) were also game for a blast, flying the spinnaker on the reaches and making the club dinghy soar faster than it has ever been. Team Gibson (RS Feva) matched the kite fun of the RSVision giving a display of spray and speed along the top of the harbour and showing just how much fun these little boats can be.
John Phelps (Laser) was, he claims, victim to an unprovoked attack by a mark he was rounding and was forced to retire and the rigiflex plastic fantastic safety boat proved to be a hit with its crew who discovered just how easy it is to pop back to the clubhouse in between races for a warm up cuppa!!

HELP HELP HELP HELP HELP
We are still missing a galley team for next year – we really need your help!
Are there any kind volunteers who would be prepared to get involved? A little bit of help goes a long way to keeping our sailors smiling, social events swinging, the cash tills ringing and the Club thriving.
This is a great chance to join in and get involved with something worthwhile be it helping out occasionally after club racing, to going large and providing sucker to esteemed visitors at our Open events and National Championships (which, if you have never joined in with these occasions before, are great fun and always have the clubhouse buzzing).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help or have any questions at all.
Any help is enormously appreciated.
The most fun you can have in a wooly hat and gloves!
