This is all the latest news from St. Catherine’s Sailing Club, Jersey, C.I.

23 boats on the water in light airs and sunshine.

Well done Martin Speller for winning the Jubilee Cup! Nick Ellison won the Jubilee plate as first junior sailor and William Holden was awarded the Jubilee Mug as first Optimist. Thanks to all the sailors who took part. It was great to see new faces out in the bay! Huge thanks to the race officers Louise and Rhys Perkins, the guard boat crews Ian Moisan, Jeremy Barnes, Andy Harris and Tracey Ingle, and to Cath Moisan and Louise Perkins for a great lunch. Thanks also to washer-uppers, trolley launchers and all others who made it a splendid day!

Club Cruise August 21st

10:00am Start
In the past we’ve picnicked at Seymour, had ice creams at Gorey or tea at the Hungry Man at Rozel. We’ve even ventured out to the Ecrehous. The club cruise destination will be revealed on the day! Bring a packed lunch and your sailing kit.

Buddy Racing

Every Thursday evening during August is the buddy race series.  The series is one of the clubs race series but with a difference.  The idea is to welcome new racers and sailors into the club, in a relaxed manner and to have club members give some time back to help you and explain things when they go wrong!  Aimed at adults it does not matter if you have not raced before or not for a long time we will help you, so that in September you feel more confident to race in club events.  This is not a sailing lesson, you need to be able to rig and sail your boat or a club boat, but we will help you tune and adjust it.  Let Kate Amy know if you are coming or if you would like to come and help out on the first session, or have any questions.

Results for Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday have been posted.  Use drop down lists and select ‘All in’ ignore overall and view each race or series.  All the trophy winners are detailed on this list.  Another great St. Cath’s Regatta weekend!
