Bart’s Bash 2019

I know it’s looking a bit windy, but please join us at the Club for the Bart’s Bash sail on Sunday. For the first time in the history of this world wide event, we have the opportunity to raise funds for our own club. The Andrew Simpson Foundation recognises the efforts that individual clubs are putting into promoting sailing. Bart would have loved St Catherine’s as much as we do! So please sign up and raise as much as you can, whether you’re sailing on Sunday or not. Many thanks!

Class Championships 2019

We are all set to run 3 races back to back for the annual Class Championships this Sunday Morning. Trophies and Shields are awarded to the winners of the Laser,  RS200, Feva, Topper, Optimist, Oppie, Pico and a Remnants Class. Racing will start promptly at 10:00am, so please sign on and rig early on the slip.

 

162nd Gorey Regatta

This weekend is promising to provide superb sailing conditions!

The sail around to Gorey will be at 6pm from St Cath’s this Friday, with boat trailer towers required to act as shore support. Please advise Dave and Justin if you have a tow bar available that eve, and for the return journey on Sunday.

If you are not planning to sail yourself over the weekend, please volunteer to help on water or land by going contacting Donald Forbes. All the sailors rely on safety cover and with out them we cannot send sailors out!  We need 10 on water and one on Beach Safety each day.

Jubilee Regatta

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow afternoon for 3 races back to back, followed by tea and cake in the Clubroom. A great way to round off half term!
Launching may be a bit tricky, so please arrive early and be prepared to help lift the dinghies of other competitors off the end of the slipway. Please also be aware of other slipway users and follow any instructions given by the SCSC slipway marshal.
Have a great weekend!

Liberation Day Regatta

The Liberation Day regatta takes place on Thursday, 9th May.  The Vega pursuit race starts at 10:00, so please arrive at 9am.  And then the sailors will come ashore for lunch.

The House committee will be serving a lunch of Chicken kebabs, Vegetarian quiche, New Potatoes and House Salads, along with Apple tart and Ice cream.

£5 for Adults, £3 for Juniors.

Please sign up in advance at Liberation Regatta  to help our catering, but of course all welcome on the day!

All donations of cakes and salads as always gratefully received.

After lunch, two more open handicap races will be held back to back.  First the Beagle, then the Liberation race.

We only run two pursuit races during the year and they are great fun, it may seem complicated at first but once you have started it is just great fun, please ask us at the club to explain the start sequence if you are unsure.
