This past Wednesday night saw many of our regular sailors turn out for the Commodore’s cup race and Alice Lisle Cup races. A big thank you to the RO (Tom Clay), ARO (Helen Draper), Safety driver (Paul Grey) & Crew (Helen Miller-Facey). last we can’t forget the wonderful, Jackie with Henry and Frank helping out too.

Solo sailor and class captain Jamie Holmes was the overall winner of the Commodore’s Cup and to the Alice Lisle cup. Both awards were present on the night by the “Rear Commodore Sailing” Hywel Morris. It was also brilliant to see Harry Draper in his Optimist out on the water too though unfortunately, he retired due to technical issues.

These prizes are presented to the winner of the last Wednesday evening handicap and Wednesday evening pursuit races of the season.

Although the pursuit races have finished due to shorter evenings, there is still a four week series of handicap races on the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of September. As well as the racing Jackie Geller will have the kitchen open so please come racing in September.

The Sailing Committee has been asked to remind all sailors of proper trolley etiquette, especially those sailing off of the beach slipway nearest the club. Once you have launched your boat, please clear the trolley off of the slipway to enable those launching after you or landing before you to do so easily.
