September Racing

From the Sailing Secretary-

Having been asked to look at adding some races to our calendar, I have come up with the following plan. Let’s call these the COVID RECOVERY races

It is intended to run the races on the 5th, 19th, 26th Sept using the courses and sailing instructions from our JPRs but to run them as closed events (FCYC only). 

These are Sunday races to avoid clashes with RFYC events.

Starts / finishes will be without a committee boat i.e. using H mark and the end of the breakwater as the line. 

Finish times to be recorded by individual skippers and sent to  forthcorinthians

This Weeks Sailing – Commodore’s Regatta – Postponed

Weather reports showing uncertain wind conditions together with a general lack of confirmed participants would suggest that this event is postponed.  The event will now be run on Saturday 6 October with a start time of 12 noon and the seasons wash up meeting at 2pm.
Just a reminder that this Saturday is the last organised outing of the season – the Commodore’s Closing Regatta/Parade of Sail.
The rules are as for the White Sail Series with a start time of 15:00. Race will be about an hour long.
There will be briefing at 14:00hrs and a season’s de briefing after the race around 16:30hrs
Weather dependant there will be a BBQ, so bring your own food and drink.
This event is really suitable for all who like to play on the water so please come along, join in and give our outgoing Commodore a fantastic send off.
If anyone cannot make the sailing, please come along at 16:30hrs for a season’s de brief, so we can hear comments to organise what we do next year..
Hope to see as many as possible on Saturday.

Lastly thanks to Martin and Eddie for performing the Race Officer duties.


Bell Rock Race Results

Five yachts took part in the overnight race from Granton to the Tay.  As the day approached there was much debate about the conditions and potential course alterations.  In the end it was felt prudent not to venture out to the Bell Rock and effectively go straight to the finish at the mouth of the Tay.  Most yachts had an exhilarating sail overnight to join Lady Nadonna who cruised up the previous day.  Many a good tale was told over beer for the next two nights at the Royal Tay’s Ale Festival before a rather wet sail home on the Sunday.

Our thanks go to Frank for organising and the Royal Tay for their exceptional hospitality.
