Entry to the event was down on previous weeks, no doubt the impact of the England or Scotland football match being broadcast that evening. Nonetheless 10 competitors sailed in what appeared to be a good wind but found that in fact the wind was bouncing of the seaward bank creating holes in the wind which introduced a lot of luck into the sailing. Well done to John Sharman the eventual winner.
14 competitors were welcomed with a great evening for sailing. Yachts were in A rig and a full schedule of 8 races was sailed with Mark Rose taking the honours.
14 competitors started the race and were met with a beautiful summers evening with a steady breeze for sailing. 9 races were sailed.
Competition was close throughout the evening with Mark Rose proving to be the eventual winner after some very consistent sailing throughout the evening.
Members will be aware by now that moving to Step 4 has been postponed until the 19th July. As far as the Club is concerned we will continue to operate under the rules and guidelines we introduced to comply with Step 3. Members are ask to continue to observe these rules. Please remember it is your decision if you wish to enter the clubhouse.
Great turn out last night with 17 boats starting the racing. Competitors were met with a light top suit breeze and racing was competitive throughout the evening.
It is with great sadness that the Club announce the passing away of John one of our active members. John was an enigmatic person who contributed greatly to the club by his participation on all sectional activity and his contribution to the club will be sadly missed.
Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
John’s funeral will be held at Lytham Crematorium on Thursday 17th June 2021 at 12.30pm
