Clubhouse Talk & Social Wed 5 Oct Restoring the New Reach in Halesworth - Gerald Burns Start:1900 HW:
Frosties (1) Sun 2 Oct A brisk force 4/5 combined with three sailors taking new boats on their maiden voyages led to an interesting race. There were four dinghies in the seniors race and three in the juniors. There was just one finisher in the seniors race and two juniors who raced over a shorter course. A member of the public spotted one of our sailors capsizing and called the emergency services. Both the coastguard and RNLI turned, but it was a good opportunity to see Luke with one of his other hats on and to appreciate that they are readily on hand if a real emergency happened. Thanks to Leslie and Rupert in the safety boat and Nigel Best for his help with the flags.

Junior Regatta   Nine Slaughden Juniors took part in the AYC junior Regatta, some having never raced before and one crew having never sailed before! They all enjoyed the week enormously, sailing the AM & PM races and they were all a credit to Slaughden.
Finnian & Oli, Cesca & Faye and Skye & Mallow all raced Fevas.
Rory Dowdeswell gained a 1st in his Topaz with Aonghus in the am series and a 2nd with Hamish in the pm races.
Very well done to them all. We are lucky to have so many very enthusiastic juniors and super parents to support them
