It’s 2019 Woodie Time
Brush off your Woodie (if you haven’t already done so), check your rigging, charge the batteries and enter the Kinghorn Open Woodie Regatta on Saturday 6th July. Entry is open to all members of MYA -SD Clubs and to visiting members of other MYA Clubs. Full details can be found here NOR Kinghorn Woodies 2019.
Many thanks go to the Greenock Club for hosting the event including the Race Officer Gordon Rae and his team. Despite the challenging wind conditions there was some very close and competitive sailing.
The main challenge throughout the day for the established local and across the border skippers was the “wind speed” stubbornly remaining between 0-4 mph throughout. Racing began with arguably the best of the wind during the morning session, concluding after 16 races in somewhat frustrating conditions. The results were:
- John Taylor 23 pts
- Robert Rooney 33 pts
- Damian Ackroyd 35 pts
A full report from John Taylor can be found here (pdf) and race results and photos are shown below.
14 Scottish skippers enjoyed a training day at Forfar Loch on Saturday the 27th April. The forecast was for rain in the first half of the morning clearing as the day progressed with a moderate easterly breeze which is exactly what transpired.
It was particularly encouraging to see some very new members having only taken up our sport in the past couple of months. Obviously the newer you are to radio sailing the more there is to learn but even the most experienced sailors took something away from the day.
Thanks to all who attended, those who contributed and to Forfar Sailing Club for opening up their main clubroom for us making for an ideal venue.
