2012 Winter Series Race 5

So the penultimate race of the winter series started and finished in pouring rain – the type Peter Kay describes as ‘soaks you right through’. It failed to deter the 24 yachts from putting out to sea in a light breeze which did not lead to any thrills or spills this weekend. 7 of the 707 fleet took part sailing their sausage shaped windward / leeward course, 9 in the Class A and 8 in Class B.

The results were as follows:

707’s -1st G Spot, Temple & Eade, 2nd Stormchaser, Patrick, 3rd Black Sheep, Parker & Clark

Class A, 1st Starchick, Wallace & Kaye, 2nd Revenge, Smith 3rd Ruffian, McIntyre

Class B, 1st Bee Sharp, Turner, 2nd Whistler, Livesey,3rd, Taurus, Mallory

If you have often seen the yachts in the bay and fancied a go, this might be your opportunity.

Scarborough Yacht Club is inviting anyone over the age of 16 who would like to come and ‘give it a go’ the chance to come and join us for a discussion on Friday evening 30 March, followed by some sailing on Saturday 31 March. The Friday evening is a chance to cover the safety points you will need to be aware of, the basics of sailing, what to wear and the need to keep your head out of the way at times! You must come to the Friday session to be able to attend the Saturday.
