Sunday Cruise

Cruise to Rozel

Meet at the Club 9:30 This Sunday Morning (24th July)
If you like the idea of a gentle sail round to Rozel, leaving around 10.00 and going with the tide, picnic at Rozel and return at slack tide, before 1500 hours when the steps at the bottom of the slip will begin to uncover.  Minimum size of boat is Pico.  The trip is not suitable for Optimists. This is recommended for experienced helms only.

The final plan will be confirmed on Sunday and is also subject to a minimum of two RIB drivers (with crew) and sufficient interest from sailors. Of course weather dependent too, though current forecast looks good and tides work well. [Force 3 Westerly: High 10:15: Low 16:51]

Don’t forget to bring a picnic and sun cream!

Regattas and Training

Liberation Day Regatta

Monday 9th May

The Liberation regatta takes place this Monday 9th May and includes lunch at the club. BYOB + cakes for afternoon tea always appreciated!

The Vega pursuit race will start at 10:30, with a briefing at 9:45 to explain all, especially useful for those new to pursuit races. After the pursuit race there will be two open handicap races held back to back; first the Beagal then Liberation trophy. Then its in for a well deserved lunch around 2 pm, before the tide is the off the slip!

Did you know….

That the St. Catherine’s Liberation Day regatta has been held every year since the club started 66 years ago.  The 3 races held on Liberation day are The Vega, The Beagle and The Liberation Day Trophy all with historic significance to the Liberation of the Channel Islands.  First race of the day is the Vega named after the Red Cross Ship SS Vega that made several trips to Jersey with Red Cross parcels, then on 9th May 1945 HMS Beagle arrived at St. Helier harbour and later that day the island was liberated, hence the order of our races!

Have you checked your boat lately?

A club member has just reported finding that a “small furry creature” had taken up residence in their boat berthed in the dinghy park.  Some damage to boat covers and control lines had also occurred. So if you haven’t checked your boat for a while its recommended that you do so soon. We hope you’re not in for a similar surprise, but let a committee member know if you find your boat has been occupied as we are monitoring the situation!
