The Yoke

By now the result of the Yoke will be well known. Congratulations to Bruce Ramsay and his crew for being not only first to finish but first overall on handicap, though sadly Emsworth did not retain the trophy. A forecast of very heavy rain and wind for Saturday and Sunday resulted in a change of course from the usual Solent one to ‘round the cans’ outside the harbour, but despite this several entrants dropped out from both clubs, and ESC were weakened in the middle order of finishers.  So well done Slipper and we will be aiming for redress in our Centenary year!

Particular thanks to Paul Cowtan for his work behind the scenes in revamping the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions, and to our commodore, Michael Geary, for hosting the Race Officer crew on his boat.

Working Party 13 Oct – your help needed!

As we all know, the Club relies on volunteer help to run smoothly, and members are reminded of the Working Party on 13 October which will focus particularly on cable replacement in the boat park as well as all the usual winter preparations for Club equipment. Please sign up on the noticeboard for two hours’ work and a free lunch!

Help with Dutyman sought

Sailing Committee are also looking to recruit help to run the Dutyman system, a very important part of racing and training at the Club. So if you are looking for an excuse to escape from the gardening and decorating, contact the RCS via the secretaries.

Sailing and Juniors have been well supported with good attendances at the Regatta and Junior Race week.
