Sailing Secretary

For a change we have generally had good sailing conditions and no strong current. There was good sailing all of April and May except for Easter Sunday which was a glorious day but no wind for the Easter Egg races.

The Saturday Open Day was ideal for taking visitors out but Sunday was much too windy to sail so visitors were given trips in the patrol boats. Robert Britton entertained them sailing a Laser; there is a video on our website.

There was an excellent visit to Bewl on the late May holiday Monday; ideal for some Open Day visitors who came.

We were very lucky that for the Signet Open meeting held with the Saturday Regatta the sailing was nearly as good as it gets on the river.


Members are reminded that it is their responsibility to sign on giving sail number, helm and crew names;  last name MUST be included because the results use that, if you have a crew it is your responsibility to enter their last name; the Boat Handicap is a higher value if you have a crew so it is to your advantage.

I try and create accurate race results but that needs the race sheet to be accurate. With one race four boats had NO helm or crew names which took a long time to sort out. Your result may not be include if you don’t sign on. I suggest signing on all race at the start of the day; it can be ignored if you don’t race.
