Vice Commodore’s Update – May 2016.

Hello Sailors….

We have made a fabulous start to the 2016 season.

Following on from the excellent Spring Series in April we had the 2nd part of the
March & May League with great cruiser racing on two Sundays in May.

The Squibs, Dragons and Lasers are active again on Thursday’s with two W/L races each evening.

Cruiser racing is in full swing with 19 boats racing round the cans last Wednesday.

Junior Sailing on Sundays is proving very popular with regular fleets of over 30
boats. The new toppers are out sailing - this class will grow and grow.

The first white sail TGIF successfully combined with the Gunsmoke Bell trophy race.

Sailability fleet Saturday mornings are up and running and it’s great to see so many new members getting involved.

Please note: The 2016 Sailing Calendar has been amended (it’s now in it’s 3rd
version) and is available to download on

I’ll sign off with a warm welcome to a new boat on the Marina – Finny O’Regan’s
beautiful Elan 333 “Artful Dodger”.

Don’t forget the Fastnet Race on Friday.

See you on the water soon.

David J O’Sullivan.
Vice Commodore.
