This is contrary to the programmed Perkins Day Boat and Double handed cups which will now be on Sunday 1st July.

With the season now in full swing its a great time to brush off your craft if it hasn’t seen much action yet. The club is buzzing with activity so join in with the fun.

Liberation Regatta

 

annual regatta

The Liberation regatta takes place this Wednesday 9th May and includes lunch at the club. The Vega pursuit race will start at 10:00. All sailors and family are welcome, BYO beer & wine if you wish.

After lunch, two more races will be held back to back; first the Beagle then the Liberation trophy.

Did you know….
That the St. Catherine’s Liberation Day regatta has been held every year since the club started 65 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!

Start of new Series this Sunday

Dear Sailors and friends,

This Sunday is the start of the Farley Series (Fast) and Verner Series (slower handicap) 1 & 2.

Start is at a slightly more leisurely 10 o’clock, with the coached fleet meeting at the same time.

With all our sailing we very much appreciate parents being on scene when juniors are out on the water, in order to receive them if they need shore support.

Volunteers are always welcome on the slipway to help with launch and recovery as well as on water support if you can help on the boats. See the officer of the day to let them know if your young sailor is going out or if you are able to assist in any way.

Have a great bank holiday weekend!

Justin

Early start for the last in series.

The ANRP/Amy 7/8 will start at 0900hrs this Sunday at the club, so please be arriving at 0800 to ensure that you are not late for the early start.

There will be no waiting for late boats!

All boats will need to be off the water around 1200 hrs so time is tight for the 2 scheduled races.

The weather looks better for the morning so enjoy the sail!
