News from RYC – 25 November 2014

Hello to everybody.
Well guess the wind had the last laugh on Saturday and blew my trophy away from me 🙁 A good race was had by the 5 Finns and 1 Sonnet , unfortually Peter decided that the Finn he was sailing should rather become the yellow submarine before the start of the race so didn’t compete. The race was won by Pierre hotly persuited by Colin and Sophie on the Sonnet ( in fact Pierre only managed to pass Colin at the bridge ). Well done Pierre at least you have upheld the tradition that the Hon Handicapper wins the Bailey Southwell …….. so you all know what to do if you want to win next year. On Sunday a calmer start to the day brought out more boats to sail ……Yes even me…. but the wind did come up by the bridge and then died again, but very well done to Tim and Adam ( yes you read right, believe there was some chocolate bribery going on, on that boat and also the jury is still out on the minimum weight for crews on Sonnets —–watch this space next year.) with Ralph coming in second.

STOP PRESS
Please note that there is a change to the calendar for this Sunday racing will not start before 11-00 and we will be completing the following series by sailing one race of each series, they are all race 3 of Spring, Summer and Special Trophy 1 and will be sailed in that order. You have been notified.

It would appear that so far Father Christmas is not going to be very busy on the 6 December, and he and his pixie will be very full with all the nice food. Michelle has received no replies yet, come on guys please phone or email her with names of children that will be coming by Friday 28 November on 0846016615 or michelle.martin@southcity.co.za
All they need is a present R50-00 or under and be at the club by 12-00.

There is sailing school this Sunday at 10-00 weather permitting and also a camp the following Friday and Saturday, please contact Tim on 0827811770 for further info.

We would just like to thank Ralph ( and his henchmen) for the work they have done in and on top of the clubhouse, thanks very much it is greatly appreciated by us all.

Now to the not so nice part. It would appear that parts of boats are being “borrowed” and not returned to the correct boats , come on guys if you have forgotten something ask before you borrow or at least have the decency to return the same because I sure you would hate it if you came to sail and found parts of your boats missing !!!!!!

The committee have asked me to let all members know that if you have not paid your subs and have boat sheds your boats will be removed from their sheds by the beginning of December 2014, as we have new members waiting for sheds, arrangements can be made with Benno for payments please contact him on 0414632005.

Well on that note I will say goodbye and hope to see you all on the river on Sunday.
Cheers
Fairweather Pam

News 12/11/2014

Hello to you all

Guess the wind was the winner on Sunday as there was no racing. Just a reminder to you all, sometimes the wind isn’t blowing as hard at Redhouse as it is in town depending of course on the direction.

This Sunday sees us ( hopefully after this last hour or so who knows )
sailing Special Trophy 1 races 1& 2 with a noon start (12-00).

The following weekend is the long race weekend where we go and see how things are going down by the bridge. On Saturday we sail Bailey Southwell which is to the bridge and back. Actually the cup looks quite good in my house but maybe some Finns or Sonnets would like to take it from me 🙁 On the Sunday is Island Cup Race where we go to the bridge and do a few laps down there and then come back. Both races are a 15-00 start and they are pursuit races !!!!!
After racing on the Saturday Rhona is making a chicken dinner for all to stay and eat. The cost is R25-00 per head and take aways can be arranged. If people would like to put their name down, please tell Rhona on this Sunday.
Cheers for now
See ja at the river on Sunday.

NEWS – 6/11/2014

Hello Everybody

So we are now well and truly a 110 years old !!!!
A great lunch was had by all that attended on Sunday and much reminiscing was done by our ex Commodores, some of them had not seen each other or the club for years and our newer members hearing some good stories of old.Like to thank everybody that helped make it a great day. If you would like to read more follow this link to My PE http://mype.co.za/new/redhouse-celebrates-110-years-of-sailing/42565/2014/11 and take a look.

Well after all the green tea’s etc that were had five sailors decided to go out and sail two races for the summer series which was enjoyed by them all, quite a stiff breeze I believe the term was for a strong easterly with great gusts !!! Unfortunately our present Commodore decided that you can sail a Finn better without bungs and retired before the boat sunk ( should have drunk green tea Andrew!!). It was great to see 2 pupils from Kingswood sailing the Gypsy, maybe practising for the Africa’s ??

This Sunday sees us sail race 3 & 4 of the Summer series start not before 14-00 hopefully the wind might be a bit kinder to some lighter sailors 🙂 .
Also do remember there is sailing school on Sunday morning contact Darryl for more info garner.darryl@gmail.com

That’s all for now folks , See you at the river on Sunday.
Cheers
Fairweather Pam.
