Loadsa News ….!!

Results update
· This coming weekend is the last in the Spring Series – currently led by Messrs Firth and Tinsley with a close contest between 2nd & 3rd and 4th & 5th so lots to play for
· Roger has kindly updated the Fairweather Series results with round 2 which has Richard and Howard firmly in the lead (see attached)

July Events

· July 6th is the Club Championships. It will be a one day event with 4 handicap races (changed from a pursuit race as previously advertised due to popular demand)
· July 12th will not be the Hughes Regatta as previously advertised – after discussion around the fleet, I’ve decided we should focus effort that weekend on July 13th which is the next Fairweather Series date. Watch this space for a rearranged social in August
· I am really keen that we do some of the after lunch training we have been talking about on July 13th. John Hanson has offered to go round in a RIB filming people if helpful. I am happy to jump in others’ boats to help with set-up, spinnaker work etc and pass on the tips Richard Lovering from Hyde Sails gave when he set up my new sails. Please come forward with what you would like to do so we can sort it out

Other stuff

· There was a theft in the changing room a couple of weeks ago – someone had his car keys taken (and I think something taken out of his car). The person (a non-member) was identified on CCTV and the police were involved so hopefully he won’t be back but it’s a salutary reminder to use the lockers
· Cowes Classic Week (21-25 July) is open to Flying Fifteens of all vintages http://www.cowesclassicsweek.org/

See you on Sunday
