There’s a new sailing group at SSC called the 13kts + Sailing Group.
The 13kts group organise themselves via a WhatsApp group and sail mostly during the week ad hoc when the wind and tide are right. Preferred winds are 13kts+ though we do go out in lighter winds too, and we’ll sail throughout the whole year.
There’s no safety boat cover with this group but we assist each other with launch and recovery. The group is welcome to all independent sailors, and to join, please email Klaus at: email@example.com, sharing your mobile phone number which is needed to connect you to the WhatsApp group. You’ll need WhatsApp on your phone too.
It’s looking very good , wind 9mph easterly , tides look good as well , the sun will be shining. What more can you ask for warm weather, sparking seas – the wind in a different direction maybe. The main thing is we are good to go
Briefing 10.30am – launch 11.00am
See you tomorrow morning – bring your picnic lunch.
Bart’s Bash Sunday 15th Sept.
Bart’s Bash this Sunday at the Club. Briefing at 10:00, race at 11:00. Forecast looking sunny and warm with a nice F2-3. Let’s get as many boats out on the water. Fun, sun, racing and prizes to be won.
The revived Regatta has happened and was a great success. 30+ boats took part, including some of the country’s top Laser sailors, in a highly enjoyable and welcoming event, with 5 different courses to test us out. Huge thanks to Doug Horner and all who helped him plan and deliver a brilliant weekend. Hopefully we’ll repeat this next year.
