Whombaff – CANCELLED – due to a problem with the boats and the F7 forecast.
After last weeks Club Championship, this weekend we move to the marine lake for our inter fleet team racing event, competing to become winners of the Whombaff!
The plan is to meet at West Kirby Sailing Club at 13:30 on Saturday, when we will decide on teams.
Confirmation of details for this weekends Club Championships:
Saturday 17th – 3 races, first start 10:20
Sunday 18th – 3 races, first start 11:00
All classes to start together, but there will be prizes for each fleet.
We have nominated the first race on Sunday to be this year’s Barts Bash. Please follow the link below to register your boat:
WKSC will be holding their Costal Championship over Saturday and Sunday, this will be open to dinghies with a PY of less than 1200, and they have agreed to also accommodate catamarans with a separate start.
High water 8.9m at 1257. First race not before 11.30 on Saturday. We will share the SIs when available and also arrange for entries to be taken at Dee SC on Saturday morning for those of us wanting to take part, in what should be a great event!
Dee sailors gave a great showing at Abersoch Mirror Week this year coming away with trophies for both outright winners and first junior boat.
It was great to see that in a fleet of 43 boats, 6 were from DSC, including a fantastic guest appearance from John and Archie Wyles all the way from British Columbia!
The early days saw very light winds and this played to the strengths of our Rear Commodore with Lee and Barnaby Matthews taking the lead in the fleet on day 1. Close behind them, in our lovely club Mirrrors, were Matthew and Harriet Waddington along with James and Josh Waddington.
