Club Championships & BBQ

The Club Championships were held over two days, Saturday 2nd July and Sunday 3rd July using the Personal Handicap System. The wind provided a stiff challenge on Saturday, more variable on Sunday and there was some very close racing which produced four different winners over the five races. The eventual winner was Colin Wright with a very consistent four second places. Second was Colin Carver and third Les Smith. Congratulations to Colin who takes home the John Lawrence Trophy.

The better weather on Sunday was ideal for the Club BBQ and it was good to see some of the families who visited us at PTBO returning to join in free sailing after the racing.

Enterprise at 60 Tideway race 2016

Four intrepid Enterprise sailors from Aldenham joined in the action on the Thames to celebrate the 60th birthday of the class, and finished well up in the top half of the 33 strong fleet.

E1 and E2 crossed the Channel back in '56 to publicise the new boat and ASC helped celebrate the 50th anniversary in 2006 also.

Racing Results

Series racing

Summer Series 1 first two races and Superhandicap have kicked off.

The second Wednesday evening series continued on 29th June with a stiff breeze and good racing but only six boats on the water. Let's all try to encourage more members to get out before the summer's over.

The next results will be out week commencing 18th July as I am away.

Push The Boat Out 2016 - a great success

The sun shone, the rain stayed away but the visitors poured in. At least 150 people young and old sampled the joys of sailing on Sunday, in Oppies and Wayfarers, with an RS Vision, a Laser and an Enterprise on the water and other classes on display on the shore. There was a mix of newcomers who'd never stepped on to anything smaller than a Channel ferry, and ex-sailors - some from this Club - who hadn't sailed for 20, 30 maybe 40 years. A number of families completed membership application forms, and everyone who attended will receive an email very soon detailing how to become a member if they are keen to join us.

Nitin and Mahesh Gosrani, the new owners of the reservoir, brought three generations of extended family along, and we introduced them to the Mayor and Mayoress of Hertsmere, and Town Mayor for Elstree and Borehamwood. They were able to see the Club humming with activity in its picturesque setting within the Country Park.

Optimists and A Wayfarer give the visitors a ride
