Dinghy report October 9th 2016.

11 boats turned up to the first series of the year kindly sponsored by DC Evans.

Once they had found their boats in the long grass, and with Simon and Sue in the committee boat and Jim and Sarah in the safety boat, battle commenced.

5 Laser radials,4 Lasers full rigs, A Merlin Rocket and an RS Vario lined up at the start.

Race 1

This was a triangle sausage to make it fair for the spinnaker boats. It took 34 mins for DC to win by almost a minute in front of John Burnell - just goes to prove sailing a Laser in Trearddur Bay over the summer pays.

My name is Jonathan Fox and I am the new owner of Mikki Finn. I will add more information to this over the Christmas period.

Meet The Launch Team

On Monday March 25th the new launch team started for the season so we thought we’d give you a quick update on who is who. Colin Davies (Senior Launch Driver), Kurt Williams and Becky Millar have all joined two  of the launch team from last year, Sion and Stretch.

In the team’s induction we reviewed the Risk Assessments and new protocols in order to make sure that we have all foreseeable eventualities covered. As noted before we have assigned certain directors to areas of responsibility and the launch team will have jobs to do when they are not ferrying you all to and from your boats.

We have discussed issues about bad weather, intoxication and last launches and we will be presenting these protocols shortly to comply with our responsibilities as the club. Please remember that you should be courteous to the Launch team and respect any decisions they make with regard to your and their safety. We do recommend that you wear your lifejacket whenever getting into the launch or indeed one of the ribs.
