AYC Regatta  

This year ten SSC members entered the AYC Regatta in August.Two pairs in the Juniors ; Jordan Samuels and George Simpson in a Feva and Finnian and Chesca Anderson in a Feva. They all did very well in extremely windy conditions. And in the Seniors,Adam Davies- Brown and Peter Samuels in a Wayfarer, Will Webb and Lizzie Clark in Lasers, Jessica Palin in a Comet and Leslie Downing in a Shrimper. They all did really well to compete in such testing conditions. Our commodore, Jessica, won her class .

AYC Laser racing  

AYC are very keen to increase the number of people racing in their Laser fleet. At present they get up to 6 boats racing on Saturday afternoons and have invited SSC Laser sailors to join them.

The Laser fleet race in the Handicap B series, on Saturday afternoons; the class flag for this is NP3 – a triangle with red, white and blue vertical stripes.

The final race of the Summer series is this Saturday at 2.25pm.
