2018 Race Programme

It’s now mid March (although looking out at the remnants of yesterday’s snow it doesn’t feel much like it!) and I’m conscious of the fact that I need to get a race programme out!

The draft race programme I published a few weeks back didn’t get the response I’d hoped for. Just two replies were received – both making suggestions but also happy enough to stick with the status quo. I assume therefore, that the vast majority of members are happy with the current situation so, for this season at least, we will stick with this and the programme will be as follows.

 

2018 Stella Worlds

  • Race 1 – SYH Classic Regatta Saturday 09th June
  • Race 2 – SYH Classic Regatta Saturday 09th June
  • Race 3 – SYH Classic Regatta Sunday 10th June
  • Race 4 – Mersea Week  Sunday 26th August
  • Race 5 – Mersea Week  Monday 27th August
  • Race 6 – Mersea Week  Tuesday 28th August
  • Race 7 – SYH/HPYC Autumn Classic Regatta Saturday 1st September
  • Race 8 – SYH/HPYC Autumn Classic Regatta Sunday 2nd September

8 races, 7 to count – 1 discard.

Best, Peter

 

Draft 2018 Race Programme for Discussion

Herewith, at long last, the first draft of what could be the 2018 Race Programme including suggested additional events. This was born out of a discussion at the AGM regarding adding more events to the calendar, but having less to count, thus spreading the geography as it were. I really do need responses on this as we need to get something in place. If I don’t hear back we will default to the programme as in previous years.

My opinion, for what it’s worth? It’s way too congested from late August with nothing in the Summer. I think we should stick with what we have…

 

2018 Draft Race Programme

Scorpio & Estrella at the Panerai British Classics Regatta 2017

Scorpio and Estrella were the outstanding small yachts in last week’s Panerai British Classic Week Regatta, held in Cowes 9-15 July.

Scorpio, sailed by Richard Matthews, with a crew that included Saskia Clark, scored a second and five firsts in the small boat class giving them the class win and the EFG Trophy. Estrella, sailed by John Mulcahy and crew scored a second, two thirds and a fourth giving them third in class 4.

Most impressive was Scorpio’s overall win on the long course, a 45-mile race around the Nab Tower followed by an upwind leg to Yarmouth, during which the wind freshened to 25 gusting 28 knots forcing the retirement of more than half the 30 boat fleet. Standing waves whipped up by a three knot spring tide made a small boat win all the more remarkable.

In addition to trophies for her class and overall win, given the extreme conditions, Scorpio was also awarded a special prize presented by Spirit Yachts, for the crew most in need of a stiff drink!

Full results for Class 4 and overall regatta prize winners can be found separately on the website.

Well done guys!
