Scotts of Greenock (IOM) Open – 18th May 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:

    1. John Taylor 23 pts
    2. Robert Rooney 33 pts
    3. Damian Ackroyd 35 pts

A full report from John Taylor can be found here (pdf) and race results and photos are shown below.

 

SD Training Day – 27 April 2019

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. 

A full report (by Tich Summers) can be viewed here (pdf file) and the photographs below have been kindly provided by Nick Slane.

The latest version (9.5) of the Race Scoring Spreadsheet has been uploaded and can be found on the “Downloads” page. On the “PRINT-OUT” tab, there was an issue “hiding” unwanted columns and rows and this has now been resolved.
