Round Hilbre Race – 26th May

WebMaster

Some may have noticed in the 2013 sailing calendar that the first Round Hilbre race is scheduled for 26th May, but you may be unaware that there is pride at stake and each year members try to beat the club record for it.  The race is from the normal Start Line off Thurstaston to Hilbre Island, keeping it to port, and back through the Line. The record for the fastest time was set at 1:00:24 in 2002 by Alasdair Davidson and Brigid Loughlin on their Nacra F18 and stood until 30 April 2006. The new record was set by Jonathan Harris and Simon Stannard on a Spitfire, with the first elapsed time to break the one hour barrier: 0:58:31.

We wonder if the club record will stand for another year or if someone will manage to break the 58m 31s record finally; good luck everyone.

Your Captain needs you!

If anyone has an old flymo (or equivalent) hover-mower that they no longer have a use for, the captain’s committee will happily take it off your hands for use in keeping the club’s land tendered well.

Please do let us know if you can help!

Junior Sailing Saturday 13th April – 1330 West Kirby Marine Lake

Jonathan Waddington (Junior Fleet Captain)

Great to see some warmer weather this week, although I think we’ll give the river a little longer and hence we’ll postpone the treasure hunt planned for this weekend.
The plan for this Saturday is therefore to go to West Kirby and get onto the water c1330. We will look to run Spring 1 & 2 for those wishing to race too.
 If you don’t have a boat and would like to arrange to borrow one, please let me know.
 Looking forward to seeing a number of you then.
 Best regards
