Improving Race Skills Sun 31 May 3 Short races Start:1100 HW:12:10
Series 1(5) with AYC Wed 27 May Molyneux Trophy Start:1830 HW:09:20
Molyneux 4 Wed 20 May Strangely no AYC dinghies out tonight, despite a pleasant evening and light winds, which meant that the 3 SSC boats only had to finish to fill the podium. A straightforward beat up to Halfway was followed by a leisurely drift back to the AYC start line where the course was shortened.
1.Will Webb in Laser Radial
2.Mike Rowe & Katie Bannister in Obi
... and the 3rd place you ask? Unfortunately the F&F Anderson boat had to get assistance and was therefore disqualified. Thanks to Leslie in support.
Thaw 4 Sun 17 May An informal race with Dave Abbott doing all official duties, thanks Dave.

Iken Race and Picnic Sat 16 May Not a great day for picnicking - cold and breezy. Five hardy souls set sail for Iken. Nigel Best (with Rob Townley) and Nigel Hemming (with Pam) had an epic duel all the way up the river, Nigel and Pam however had not signed on to race! They were subsequently joined at Iken beach by Jessica Palin (who turned the air blue negotiating the challenging finish line set by Rupert), Leslie, Barry and Will for a cold but well deserved picnic.

2.Jessica Palin in Spirit
Thanks to Barry Cullen and Will Webb in the support boat.
Molyneux 3 Wed 13 May This was a cracking race with 5 SSC boats and 3 from AYC. David Pegg gave everyone a display of expert Laser sailing, locked in battle with 2 AYC lasers (both with full rig) the whole way round the course.
1.David Pegg in Sweep (also 1st in combined results with AYC)
2.Will Webb in Laser Radial
3.David Ashton in Quackers
Thanks to Jack Broom, Mike Rowe and Katie Bannister in the support boat.
Woolverstone Regatta Sat 09 May Twelve clubs participated in the Woolverstone Project celebratory regatta on the Orwell from the Royal Harwich YC. The sailing was in extremely challenging conditions: when the gusts reached 33mph the boats were called in until the worst was over! Will Webb and David Pegg sailed very well to represent Slaughden, but the honours went to Finnian Anderson who won the Junior Trophy which was presented to him by Paul Heiney, patron of the Woolverstone Project. Thank you to all three for taking part and representing SSC. There are a couple of photographs in the Photo Gallery and a report of the event is also available. The sailing was followed by a BBQ with music and much talking. The exact amount raised is not yet known, but looks to be more than 3,000 but best of all the event raised the profile of disabled sailing and all the sailors seemed to really enjoy sailing the Access dinghies, despite the soaking they got!
