Volador Plate race at CYC this weekend - Saturday 27th June

Written by

First one, I am glad to announce that I was NOT going mad on Friday night and more importantly a dinghy was NOT stolen from the club house. In my write up re Castles & Islands I mentioned the dinghy for January First's use had gone missing. It has since been found. "Someone" had decided to loan it out to Nick Spurr. Mystery solved. I could have done without the added pressure of that one pre race!

This Saturday sees the Volador plate race being run. This is a great chance for any boat to win a bit of the Club's silverware without doing a full series of races. This is a trophy I personally have never won and would like my name on this big plate as I am sure others would too. I'm positive Medmerry II will be wanting to wipe the smirk off January First's collective face after the last time we squared up against each other..... Talk about setting myself up for a fall!

Last series race we had a good turn out of 7 boats racing. Come on, let's push up to double figures of entries. forecast if currently for light winds so it's anyones for the taking.

We have Peter Boyle as Race Officer. Briefing is 10:00 at Clubhouse.

See you all there.
