Training 2011

Names are now being collected of members who wish to join in the Tuesday evening training during 2011.

As in 2010 it is intended to run a number of groups from beginner to race training. Would anyone interested please contact Mike Fairlamb as soon as possible, if they have not already done so, as places are limited and will be on a first come first served basis.

Thank You!

Mike Turner has finished gathering the sponsor monies for his recent swim and is delighted to announce a total of £803 has been collected in aid of the Bedford Oncology Unit. This amount will be increased by the tax man through gift aid declarations.

Mike wishes to reiterate his heart felt thanks for everyone's sterling efforts (seems the wrong way round!) in enabling such a great donation to be possible.

Santa Made It!

The cold weather and snow may have prevented some of the regulars from attending the children's Christmas party, but Santa still made it after skating across the frozen lake (don't try that at home!).

Before his arrival there were various games and a tea party. It was all topped off with some carol singing and Santa handed out presents to each of the children.

 

Is Your Boat Safe?

Following the high lake level last week all boats were moved from the foreshore to higher ground. However, they will not have been tied down. With the high winds forecast for today, and the next few days, if you do not intend sailing it would be sensible to remove your boat, or at least take down the mast to reduce windage and the risk of it blowing over. Boats that blow off trailers are sometimes damaged, but also can damage the boat next to it. Please have a thought for your, and others', property.

Thanks.

Final Day

As there was only one taker for racing this morning, no racing took place and the results of two weeks ago stand giving Tom Gosden two trophies for next year's prize giving, having won both the personal and fleet handicap version of the series.

Dinner Dance 2010

The 59th Annual Prize Giving dinner dance took place at North Lakes Hotel, Penrith on Saturday 27 November 2010.

After dinner, Ian Preston gave a speech proposing a toast to the club to which Commodore Dave Nicholson responded. Prizes were awarded by Pauline Nicholson.

In addition to the series and championship prizes, the Roger Pryde Memorial Trophy was awarded to Ethan Dawson for his achievement in successfully qualifying to be part of the Topper 4.2 National squad. Christina Tully's perseverance in numerous aspects of racing was recognised with the award of the Consistency Trophy.

Apologies about the quality of various photos - looking at them, it's hard to believe the cameraman was sober!

The End is Nigh!

Sunday was a superb autumn day and attracted seventeen members to the Club with the intention of having a further sail. But the wind was at its most fickle, sometimes filling in to make a race start possible and sometimes dying away completely allowing the images of the surrounding fells to be perfectly reflected in the water. This continued until lunchtime after which the race officer decided to abandon racing for the day. This leaves only the one remaining round of the Winter Series to be sailed next weekend before the long winter break commences.

Weekend Racing

Races three and four of the Winter series were held on Bassenthwaite last Sunday.  The water level had receded somewhat and winds were again light enticing eleven boats onto the Lake.  The Musto Skiff sailed by Robin Dawson is a potentially rapid boat and is handicapped accordingly but it is not designed for light winds and, although it finished ahead on the water in Race one, its lead was not enough to beat the following boats on corrected time and the race win went to Jim Christie in his Supernova from Alan Nicholson in his Solo.  Dawson finished third while the Supernova of Peter Ballard beat the GP14 of Mike Turner / Sue Watson for fourth place by a single second.

The next race produced a different result with Steve Hunt / Ruth Critchley  in their Merlin Rocket beating the Laser of Tom Gosden by a mere eight seconds.  Christie finished third and Nicholson fourth.  With the Series half completed Christie and Gosden share the lead with six points apiece whist Nicholson is third on nine points.

Youth Squad Prize Giving

The Youth Squad prize giving took place on Saturday evening. A quote from the stand-in official photographer for the evening Apologies for lack of photos of the Youth Squad Prizegiving but those taken were a load of rubbish - photos not recipients that is!!

Bonfire Night

For a change, the bonfire night firework display was launched from the jetty. As a result there were some magnificent reflections to be seen on the calm, flooded lake. Thanks to Mik for these images.

Winter Series

The final series of the season got underway after a glorious morning when the lake was mirror-like, again! There was enough to sail in but looking at the finish times, it must have dropped off again during the race.

The series results are calculated on both a personal and fleet handicap basis, and, at present, Tom Gosden is leading both sets of results!

Congratulations

Many congratulations to Ethan Dawson who was sailing at Carsington over the weekend and successfully qualified to be part of the Topper 4.2 National squad.

Slow Sunday

An extra hour in bed did nothing in terms of allowing the wind to fill in - it was mirror-like!

The forecast was not for strong winds, so it may have been some time before we got a decision on when racing could start. Well, the wind filled in, the start boat went out, and the fleets followed. The wind kept swinging, the race started, and the wind died - 15 mins for the short first beat. The boats kept moving, but the OD did not risk sending them round for a second lap. That concluded the final championship series for the year - Mike and Kayla won the Dawson Trophy, Scumper the Skiddaw Trophy, Mike Fairlamb the Autumn Cup and Toddy the Bates Trophy (his first and only win of the season!)

Over lunch the wind settled in from the forecast NE direction, but would it still be there for the afternoon pennant race in aid of the Eric Twiname Trust? As you might have guessed by the time the fleet were on the water the wind had faded again! Racing did get underway in the bay, but the wind swung more to the south so the 1st beat was a fetch, and the next reach was a one sided beat followed by a tight reach for the third leg of the course. Elaine was suffering with back pain, so to defend her lead in Sandra's Salver series for women crews in pennant races she was dosed with painkillers and winched into William's boat! They did take an early lead from Ruth (helming!) and Steve but Scumper and Robbie D were not far away. After a couple of laps the wind died and the race shortened. Robbie D got through to the lead from William. On handicap Ruth won by 10 secs, with Scumper 2nd, and William 3rd. Elaine's first position as a crew strengthened her lead and secured her winning position in Sandra's Salver.

The Tale of Sale

Again the effects of Sale Fell were well and truly felt across all fleets as the SSW wind swung round it resulting in two opposing winds with a nasty calm bit in the middle (just where the windward mark was!). The fresh breeze that was forecast, came through in bursts, but never settled resulting in frustrating racing conditions, and numerous capsizes when some boats were caught out by the gusts (Lucky them!). A non racer who seemed to be doing lots of capsizing was Robbie D getting to grips with his new acquisition - a Musto Skiff

Tomorrow morning's race will conclude the series and finalise the club championship positions. How time flies!

Hat Overboard!

After a cool day on the water yesterday when Kayla got unusually cold, she opted to wear a hat today. However, Hat Overboard was the call as her hat blew off and she couldn't catch it, but Mike cooly went about to pick it up. Even though he had already secured the series by winning the morning race, he didn't lose enough ground for Tim to pass him. Perhaps it was the two pieces of cake that Mike had scoffed at lunch that got him off to a slow start and he had to catch Tim. For Tim's crew Claire Duncan, it was her first bit of racing and they walked away with two 2nds.

Meanwhile husband Alistair tried his hand in a GP and got a 3rd and a 1st, to finish 3rd overall. Dave and Lynn had continued their winning ways to take their 3rd win in the morning race and the series.

Mik Chappell took the glory back from Toddy (yesterday was the first time he'd headed the leader board this season!), with two wins to take the series from Alan Waugh.

Back on the water from paternity leave, Scumper took two 1sts from Neil and Judith. However, although Sam couldn't sail as he was OD, his 3 OD points enabled him to win the series, with Toggle finishing 2nd.

Final Championship Weekend Series

Although the forecast was not very promising, the wind did fill in to get racing underway, but it then started to swing more to the East. William and Lezli-Ann Pearson were squeezed off the line by Sam Hall :( which took them most of the beat to pull back, only to be caught port and starboard by Toggle. Clearly that race was not meant to be, and although they broke 3 mins clear, it wasn't enough to beat Jim Christie or Toggle. The line was moved to suit the new wind direction, and the lap length shortened. Although the OD's plan was for a short race, he felt 15 min was a little too brief so the fleet went round again only for the wind to die - the 2nd and final lap took 35 mins! This time Sam Hall took the honours, on handicap, from William with Neil Garrison 3rd. Sam takes the overnight lead.

In the F15s, positions were consistent with Mike and Kayla winning both races from Tim.

Dave and Lynn Lawson won both GP races. Dave Nicholson and Sarah Wilkinson were 2nd, but didn't sail the final race. Val and Ken Bell made do with a 3rd and 2nd, to lie 2nd overnight.

The Mirror results were a lot more mixed, and interestingly all three helms presently have 4 points. It is Toddy that takes the overnight lead having won the 2nd race.

Peter Davis

It is with sadness we advise that long standing member Peter Davis passed away at the weekend following a long illness. His funeral is to be held at St Mary's RC Church, Cleator Moor at 10am on Monday 18 October.

He enjoyed many weekends sailing with his family at Bassenthwaite, and the many friends he made. His family are not certain that they enjoyed the wet Bass Weeks camping in the rain quite as much!

Our thoughts are with his children at this sad time.

F15 Team Racing

As forecast, the blustery winds have passed through leaving good racing conditions for the fleet and their early start (Shame Jim Christie thought he was starting at 10.30 too!)

A fleet of 13 boats are taking part in this year's event, and according to our F15 fleet captain, they had the worst start ever!

The wind proved to be very changeable, with bursts of strong winds coming through for minutes at a time before easing to fairly light conditions. The gusts that did come through caught out various sailors - there were a couple of F15s that capsized as well as numerous club boats!

Keith Thomas and Ian Campbell had a couple of problems to deal with. Firstly they trawled their kite at the windward mark, but as it went under the boat they had to come ashore to re-rig it. Then when they came ashore before the final race, Ian slipped off the foredeck and went for an untimely swim!

The day turned out to be one for jousting with two separate competitions going on. Firstly Steve Peck had a tussle with a F15 and snapped his jousting stick (aka gennaker pole), and Toggle skewered Alan Jones sail with his mast.

In the team racing, although there were clear winners with the key Derwent team, 2nd place place was hotly contested. Even though the Bass team, supported (or should it be propped up by?)by Steve Goacher, had to include three DNFs, there average points just pipped the 2nd Derwent team by 0.17pts to finish second overall.

Commodore Dave Nicholson said a few words of thanks to the competitors (Don't think that anyone noticed Pauline hadn't dressed him properly by giving him odd socks!) and the prizes were presented by Pauline. Overall winner of the open meeting was Steve Goacher and Phil Evans, who were celebrating(?) 20 years (to the day) in a Flying 15. The winning team, Chasing Jenga, from Derwent Reservoir also had the winner of the Grotty Potty - awarded by the previous recipient Phil Evans. It went to Paul Averley for his inability to abide by the rules of Jenga in the pub last night!

There She Blows!

There has been a good forecast for this weekend for several days - 12/13 knots is just what the F15 sailors need for some good team racing. However, when the wind strength is doubled with regular gusts, and you're looking into the E wind from the club house, it all seems much less inviting.

When Mike Moore and Steve Goacher up sticks and go home you realise that there's not much point in hanging around.

The proposal is that the team racing will start at 10.30 in the morning, by which time the winds should have moderated.

Strange how the gusts passed through and the conditions seemed so much more sailable by 3pm!

GP14 National Inland Championship

This weekend we are hosting the GP14 Inlands. The rain has passed over and there is a forecast for a good southerly breeze all weekend.

There is a fleet list of 42 boats all ready and waiting for some excellent racing, and that is what they got!

Neil Marsden walked away with the first race and Steve Goacher the second, each having broken away by the end of the first beat.

The southerly breeze held steady and the fleet had a 28min beat to the bottom end of the lake for the third and final race of the day. There were various capsizes along the way. This time Shane MacCarthay led the fleet but the reaches and long run back to the finish proved to be testing with various position changes taking place. It was to be Mike Senior that won, and took overnight lead. Steve Goacher was second and lies third overall with Neil Marsden getting third and lying second!

Bass tales include the discovery of a killer shrimp in the lake - must be true because they were nibbling Mike Moore's backside while he was practising his capsize drill (shouldn't really do it through a race though!). Word is that the capsize was due to crew Kayla not getting her leg over fast enough! Best Bass boat was Dave Lawson with Toggle crewing - clearly continuing his successes in the Masters at Windermere recently. Sally started the day badly when she broke a crown on the crispy bacon bap! It went further downhill when she was hit in the face (guessing by a spinnaker pole). Tim Knowles unfortunately capsized just after finishing, caught his main on another boat and ripped it, Bad enough in itself, but the fact that the main was new last weekend, and was only on its second outing, exacerbates the situation somewhat!

On Sunday the wind was still a southerly, significantly lighter than Saturday, but it was easing as the fleet prepared for the first start for which there was a general recall. The black flag for the subsequent start kept the competitors back from the line and they had a clean start at 10:45.

As Mike Senior approached the leeward mark it seemed unlikely that he would maintain his lead as he was being blanketed by the fleet in light winds, but he cleared the mark and started beating on what turned out to be the final beat. However, the wind was not as kind to the rest of the fleet as they approached and rounded the leeward mark in drifting conditions as the wind swung through 180 degrees. Spinnakers were hoisted in an attempt to catch the occasional zephyrs of wind which remained unkind. Mike Senior was to have a 17min lead over the next boat, and unfortunately with a 20min finishing time limit on the race there were only three more boats that finished the race. But the 36 DNFs were in the good company of champions such as Steve Goacher and Neil Marsden!

As a result Mike Senior was in an unassailable position and had won the Championship. A disappointed fleet were sent ashore for lunch in the hope that the breeze would settle down for the fifth and final race.

A slight breeze did cause ripples across the lake over lunch and the OD went out to start a race, but it was not settling and racing was cancelled.

Prizes were awarded by the Commodore's wife Pauline following a few words of thanks by Commodore Dave Nicholson. Mike Senior thanked the club on behalf of the visitors.

Dave Lawson's finish in the morning race secured his position as best Bass boat (and first amateur!) finishing 4th overall.

Sam's Saturday Success

Bolton S C hosted the final event of the North West Junior Travellers 10 race series on Saturday. The challenging wind conditions resulted in several capsizes which kept the rescue crews very busy. This was Sam's first season as a youth and the competition was closely contested throughout. It was down to the final event to decide the winner. Sam finished first overall and was awarded the NWJT trophy and several other prizes from the series sponsor 1st. Mark.

Congratulations to Mark and Kirstie Somerville who has just given birth to Cameron Luke at 9.45am on 29 September. Cameron weighed in at 7lb 10oz, is a brother for Matthew, and is temporarily in the special care unit.

Fleet Challenge C

The wild winds as forecast didn't come to fruition, nor did the 10mph breeze! OD Mark Ninnim found the swinging winds challenging (as were his 'helpers' in the committee boat!), but he got all three races in in fluctuating winds.

Tim Knowles got off to a flying start with his new sails, but he slipped back and Mike Fairlamb went on to win both the 1st and 2nd races, in which Tim and Vall Bell each shared a 2nd and a 3rd. Ah ha, well that was the case until it was pointed out that the series should be calculated on a personal handicap basis!

John and Janis Halliday managed to break away from Mike Fairlamb in the 2nd race only to lose ground by sailing to the wrong mark! However, it all came together in the 3rd race which they won from Neil by more than 175 secs.

Mike and Kayla used a spare day to practice in a GP before next weeks inland championships

Sunday started cool and continued that way! The northerly breeze eased at the end of the first race, so the fleet came ashore in the hope it would pick up for the final two races of the series.

John and Janis Halliday, having secured another win, are in a strong position, but Neil Garrison could potentially steal their thunder.

The wind settled in more from the NE for the afternoon racing. Mike and Val swapped crews for the final races, but it did not stop them having some match racing situations, and had the OD been requested to witness it is unlikely he would have helped Mike's cause!

There were more runs in the afternoon, which worked against John and Janis who secured and 3rd and 4th to win the series. Neil Garrison with a 6th and 1st closed the gap on John, but finished 2nd overall.

Alan Jones had Peter as a front seat driver in the Kestrel and had some good racing finishing 3rd overall. Val Bell finished 4th.

As mentioned earlier, the GP Inlands are being held at the club next weekend.

Oops!

Mik Chappell spotted this the other day. Fortunately the forecast has moderated somewhat!

Congratulations

Congratulations to Nick and Nat Smith on the birth of Daisy Elise who weighed in at 8lb8oz at 9.40pm on 22 September, and is a third grand-daughter for Alan and Pat Smith.

Success!

Congratulations to Dave and Pete Lawson having won the GP Masters held in Windermere this weekend in a strong fleet of over 30 boats. T

John Telford and Andy Smith teamed up again after several years break and secured an excellent second place. Well done Team Bass!

RS Open

This weekend the lake was taken over by RS 200s, 400s and Vareos, all sailing as separate fleets. As they are all asymmetric boats, the courses were windward/leeward.

With eight races scheduled, all the races were to be short and sharp. Unfortunately the wind was not been as strong as forecast, but there was certainly enough to get them round the course.

The wind did freshen from time to time, but the shifts occasionally took away the true windward leeward as well.

With four races in, there appeared to be some clear winners emerging, but who could tell what Sunday would bring?!

Well a wet Saturday night lingered throughout the morning. There were some good gusts that resulted a couple of capsizes, and racing generally remained very close.

With another two races completed, the sailors stopped for lunch.

The rain stopped for the afternoon racing, and veered more to the NW, but there were occasional bands of wind that helped (or hindered) boats by a significant amount at times, but after eight closely fought races the winners were confirmed. Toggle led the fleet home in the final race having been on the wagon after an enthusiastic start to the weekend. He had led the previous race for a while but slipped back when Scumper got his act together again! Tog's consistent placings enabled him to secure a strong second behind Scumper.

Vice commodore Stephen Kirkpatrick thanked the competitors and presented the prizes.

Tinker Trophy

Sunday

Shunty realised there was a bad omen for the day when The Bates wouldn't start due to a lack of diesel! So it was duly towed to the start line by a Dory which he tied to The Bates. Unfortunately his knot didn't hold and it drifted off! Having set a course for a NW breeze, just after the sequence began the wind swung to the W so Shunty opted to change the course. He eventually restarted the sequence and the wind, of course, swung back to the NW! C'est la vie!

Although the wind freshened as the morning went on, there were still various lulls. William and Raf took the lead, but the off wind legs were not kind in terms of strength and they were unable to sufficiently break away from the other fleets. As Tim and Ian caught up in their F15 their main halyard broke and they dropped out of the race. Paul Bowmer led the rest of the fleets the wrong way around the course, which helped William increase his lead but not enough to win on handicap. Mike Fairlamb's win was sufficient to secure the Tinker Trophy.

Perhaps the wind direction would settle for the afternoon, aided by a sea breeze - or was that wishful thinking?! Fortunately the wind did strengthen and held. At last Shunty's course was more suited to the asymmetrics and William squeezed in a win, only just, by 4 secs a lap!

In the Tinker rally, Malcolm Ellwood was the new overall winner, from long standing winner David Warren, with Stewart and Barbara Warden 3rd. For a pleasant change they had good winds, without being too strong, all weekend. Prizes were presented by vice commodore Stephen Kirkpatrick

Saturday

Another glorious afternoon's sailing, though the wind was not as strong as predicted.

While a fleet of 16 Tinkers are holding their annual rally again, club racing comprised  mixed fleet handicap series for the Tinker Trophy. Though William and Lesley were able to break away, from the rest of the fleet, the lulls in the wind prevented them beating the GPs when handicaps were calculated. While Tim and Mike each won a race, William had to settle for two 3rds. Mike and Eric are overnight leaders.

Night Jar B

As the darker evenings draw in, the second Night Jar series draws to a close, and the overall result was determined on the final race. Jim Christie sailed well again to win the race but Jo Watkins beat Neil and Judith Currie by a couple of positions to take the trophy.

Sam's Successes

Bass must have had the lion's share of the winds over the weekend. Sam Hall travelled to Redesmere for a North West Junior Traveller event and finished 3rd overall in very LIGHT winds.

Indian Summer

Sunday

The wind is from the SE again - will OD Ian make use of the southern end of the lake in his courses?

The answer was yes! A beat to 13 took approx 35 mins, but with the wind freshening as forecast, the reaching back down to 2 only took just under 20 mins!! Gybing in the stronger winds took out various boats including Toggle at 14, and just after his spinnaker block fell apart (for which he was probably grateful as he could no longer fly it!). Steve and Ruth in their Merlin had a couple of spectacular capsizes, one due to Steve slipping in the boat (another burgee donated to Neptune!). Martyn and Steve capsized their F15 and were merrily bailing out on their way ashore. Other casualties were, Ethan, Nigel (his burgee was battered, but survived unlike his tiller which proved not to be strong enough to stop him falling out of the boat!), Jim and Alistair.

The offwind legs enabled William and Tom in an RS400 to catch Neil Garrison in a Dart (though he did have three on board). William's lead was sufficient to win the race on handicap.

Mike Moore failed to cover on the last beat and paid the penalty as Tim pipped him at the finish line to win the Scarness Cup with three straight wins, and that determined that they would take their boats off the water before lunch!

Dave and Lynne also won the GP Graham Cup with their third win from Mike and Eric.

The wind did not relent over lunch, so racing for the afternoon was cancelled. However, Steve and Neil did opt to go out for a bit of a blast in the Dart, and Steve was surprised at the speed!

With no racing, Toggle took the Wythop Series with his two wins

No Mirrors sailed so Alan Waugh, as overnight leader won the Reflection Trophy.

Saturday

The school holidays may be over, but Summer may have returned (temporarily)! A wonderfully warm southerly greeted sailors, and OD Ian Preston opted to make best use of the wind by sending the fleet all the way round the lake. It may have been a hard slog to the bottom in the first race, but the breeze held for the spinnaker legs back. There were a couple of lasers that capsized, but they still made it round.

In the second race, the main fleet just went to 10, again in a steady wind, although it had eased from the first race. William's crew Alistair hadn't crewed for 15 years, never sailed an RS400, or flown a spinnaker, and was pleased to lead the racing (they were even in front of Robbie D and Ethan when they had to retire as the main halyard gave way). However, the downwind legs were not sufficient for them to break away from the rest of the fleet, and with the wind filling in from behind (as it does!) Toggle was able to scream into the leeward mark and take lots of ground, winning him the race (as he did the first).

In the F15s Tim and Ian led Mike and Kayla in both races.

Dave and Lynn beat Mike and Eric in both GP races, while Mik and Alan each shared a win in the Mirrors.

More wind tomorrow!

Bank Holiday

and it's sunny! Not as much wind forecast as the last couple of days, but many could be relieved at that.

Although the lake was flat at 9am, the breeze covered the lake in patches, and eventually filled in shortly after the start. However, it proved to be the bet race of the day, because in the afternoon, the wind died, then it seemed a if a sea breeze was to be the saviour. When the race started, there had to be a general recall, and there was a further delay. It was 1545 before racing got underway, then the wind disappeared again, so it was a long haul, but the series results were all depending on the final race so most persevered.

Mike Moore and Sally Roberts took the honours in the F15 from guest helm Mark Ninnim with Ian Preston. Martyn Stephenson had been impressed at not coming last in the morning race (he was second last!), but more impressively he finished second in the afternoon race :)

Dave and Lynne Lawson, won the GPs with three straight wins from Mike Fairlamb and Eric Smith.

Robbie D and Big E secured the handicap series from Mrs and Mrs Bean

The Mirror results were consistent through out the series with Mik Chappell winning from Alan Waugh.

At least it was a sunny afternoon to be drifting around waiting for wind!

Sunday

The wind is blowing with some strong gusts passing through - but it's sunny! Will it all last? The brief answer is yes! The beats tended to be blustery, with associated shifts, and several boats capsized as a result, but there were some enjoyable spectacular spinnaker legs while the gusts were passing through.

The wind eased over the lunch break, but while the fleet were waiting for the committee boat to test out an unusual way of mooring the boat to windward of the anchor, it freshened again. There were more capsizes, including Dave and Lynne again, and some excellent gusts to take advantage of on the reaches. However, the fleet were a little disappointed that racing remained in the bay when it was felt that the wind was ideal for sailing around the full lake.

Saturday

A showery start to the day, but it stayed fairly dry throughout the afternoon racing. The winds held, with some strong gusts passing through that caught out many of the single handers, and, unusually, Dave and Lynne Lawson at one point!

Mark Ninnim and Emma Smith did a little bit of mark repositioning when they got their mainsheet caught on a mark. Although Robbie D had already rounded the mark, the rest of the fleet benefited from broader reach from 0 to 1.

More of the same for tomorrow?

Sandra's Sunday

For the second weekend in a row, there has been a round the lake pennant race which counts towards Sandra's Salver - clearly a keenly contested award, which goes to the top lady crew over the seven race series, as various women make a special effort to compete. With one final race to go, Elaine Hunt is still in the lead. The pennant race itself was as frustrating as round the lakers get. Although Robbie D and Big E broke away from the fleet early on, at the leeward mark, after 40+ mins, his lead had been reduced to 1'20 from Mike and Kayla in a F15, William and Elaine in a Rs400, and Steve and Ruth in a Merlin Rocket. The return up the lake seemed to have many more holes than the beat down! With spinnakers going up and down like a yoyo, Mike and Kayla got the spinnaker sheet wrapped around their keel, and each time they tried to fix it something else occurred. Mike assures us that Kayla didn't swear (audibly?!). At that stage Robbie D broke away from Mike and others caught him up. However, it was not until the lead boats were through Scarness that the fleet properly split up, albeit too late for some of the faster handicap boats to beat Mike. Scumper had a stormer of a leg back up the lake, closing the gap on overall winner Robbie D to just 33 secs on adjusted time. Positions 4 - 7 were just 60 secs apart after 90 mins racing.

An current update of the championship positions are posted below.

Three Men in a Boat!

There was a wealth of experience in the committee boat - two trustees and all three past commodores - must be more than 100 years sailing experience, and probably 200 years in age! But did it help?

Racing was delayed waiting for some members held up in M6 traffic. Mike Moore made it, but his crew had already been borrowed by William.

With a good SW wind, the courses all seemed to hug the shadow of Sale Fell, so there were inevitable dull patches throughout the course. However, there were some good reaches at times to make up for it.

It seemed to be a day to keep the rescue crews on there toes, with most, if not all, of the single handers capsizing at some point in the afternoon.

There were a couple of minor gear failures that caused helms to capsize - Dan Marskell went in on the start line when his main sheet went, and former member Andrew Nuttall had a spectacular capsize on a reach when his toe straps broke. What a fun way to get back to grips with the sport!

Tomorrow should be sunny and slightly less windy - let's wait and see whether the forecast is right!

Thank You

Hi

Just to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone at your club for making Bass Week such an enjoyable week for us.

You have a fantastic club, with a great team working together to make Bass Week such a success, making everyone very welcome and everyone friendly and helpful.

The facilities were spot on, and I know this was down to the team you have there keeping a check on everything.

The sail training for the kids was excellent, Peter was fantastic with the kids. A special mention to Des for all of his help with the boats.

The atmosphere in the clubhouse is great, with Kayla and Gary, and all of their helpers being superb on the bar. The whole weeks entertainment was fantastic.

A special thanks also to Andrea, who was on top form {roger roger!} all week and is a great asset to your club.

We all made lots of new friends and our first experience of both Bass Week and camping certainly wont be our last. We are looking forward to next year already.

Thanks again and keep up the good work

See you all next year

It's All Over....

Well almost! With Bass Week over and the grounds cleared, there was a one day triathlon run from the club on Saturday before normality returned with racing on Sunday.

Well almost! The weather had other ideas. Fourteen boats took to the water for the morning race, the course was set, the start signalled and off they went. But nobody got very far as the wind died completely and there was no alternative but to signal that the race was abandoned. Competitors were towed back to the Club by the safety boat crews to start an early lunch.

A sea breeze set in at around 1.30pm and the race officer correctly decided that it was sufficient go around the complete Lake. The race was the Banana Stakes named after the prize of a bunch of bananas presented annually to the winner in the distant past by the late Bill Anderson who was a wholesale fruiterer. It was sailed on personal handicap with all boats starting together.

So, in light winds and glorious sunshine, competitors headed to the Keswick end of the Lake at which point the RS400’s of Steve and Elaine Hunt and Neil and Judith Currie were leading on the water. These boats were to stay ahead for the remainder of the eighty minutes it took them to complete the race but the crews then had to wait to see how the later competitors – some taking two hours to complete the course - had fared. And it was a crew who were sailing on the lake for the first time in 2010, Stuart and John Brookes in their Flying Fifteen who were declared winners. The GP14’s of Nigel Lewis and Claudie Black and Dave and Lynn Lawson took the next positions ahead of the Mirror of Alan Waugh.

The race was a round in the Sandra’s Salver series for lady crews and Claudie Black’s result moves her into third position in the standings behind Elaine Hunt who leads the series from Michaela Sheard. There are two rounds remaining in this competition of which the next one will be contested this coming weekend.

Bass Week Preparations Nearing Completion

Update form Vice Commodore:

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who was able to come down and help at the Bass Week working party. Your efforts were greatly appreciated and has helped us to get the site ready for this year’s regatta.

There has obviously been a massive amount of work throughout the year building up to this point (especially including the work of the grounds team) and it was brilliant to see efforts culminating with so many getting involved in the working party.

Here’s to a great Bass Week!

Thanks again and best wishes,

Stephen

As the grounds are looking so good, it's a shame to let anyone on site to disturb it all.......

Toby Gatty

Many older members will remember Toby Gatty who used to work on rescue. Sadly Toby passed away last Friday. His funeral will be held in St John's Church, Bassenthwaite at 11am on Wednesday 28 July.

Our thoughts are with his wife Jean who worked behind the bar for many years.

Club ties are considered most appropriate for those attending the funeral.

RYA Training Day

Des Wright, Ken West, Emma Smith, Ellen and Jamie Kerr, Jordan and Arnie Helling enjoyed a race training day with Pete Robinson from the RYA.  The wind was gusty and many enjoyed the warm water of the lake, but everyone agreed they had learned many simple techniques and learned more about the rules to help them gain confidence to start racing.  Pete coached them on the water and finished the day with some short races

Next RYA Training Day is in September.  Keep a look out for the date

Raising the flagstaff

After Winter maintenance identified some major defects in the top part of the flagstaff. The substantial repairs have been completed and the pole re-erected in time for Bass Week much to the relief of our vice commodore, and he expresses his personal thanks to Scumper and Alan Smith for all their efforts in organising its repair and reinstatement.

 

 

 

 

Daws on course, of course!

Well done to Ethan Dawson who competed in the Topper 4.2 Nationals last weekend at Leigh and Lowton. There were 45 entries and Ethan finished 39th.

He won a prize for completing all nine races, especially impressive as Saturday's wind hit 28 knots!

Any guesses who dreamt up the heading?

Youth Squad

The Youth Squad have again had some dedicated races, but could be better attended.

Although Ethan mastered the conditions on Saturday, he found his match against Robin Crawley in Sunday's racing. Despite this, Ethan leads the Sunday series, while Luke Howarth is leading the Saturday series

All on the last race

A gentle breeze with various gusts at times led to a pleasant morning's racing. The wind in the afternoon eased as the race went on, but it was still reasonable racing conditions. The close racing at the front of each fleet led to the series results being dependent on the last race, so they had everything to sail for.

Mike and Eric secured two more wins to take the series from Paul Bowmer.

Robbie D and Scumper again shared wins in the handicap fleet, but Robbie's win in the afternoon won him the series.

Similarly, Telf and Andy had some close racing but, Andy's afternoon win gave him the series.

Did she jump or was she pushed?!

The morning gusts had eased by the time racing started but there was still a good sailing breeze to keep the sailors happy. A shift in the wind took resulted in a somewhat biased beat for a while, but such is Bass!

Neil and Judith Currie were tempted back on to the water by the lighter airs, but at one stage Judith missed her toestraps and was dragged along with the boat as she clung on to her jib sheet. Neil soon had her back in the boat and they continued with the race. Scumper and Robbie D with Big E each had a win on handicap. Jim Christie lost his rig when a U bolt gave way, but no real damage done.

Gary Mansell fought his fears and went out for a brief sail with William in the RS400. One beat was enough as a taster but he will be back for more....

While Andy Smith waits for his new GP, he took to the water to give Telf, Mik and Alan a run for their money in the Mirror fleet. Telf and Andy each had a win a piece

Kayla went out in Mike F15 with Tom - each thought the other was helming! Anyway, they had a pleasant sail and no incidents.

In the GPs Mike and Eric shared the honours with Paul Bowmer and his wife, with Paul taking overnight lead.

Overall some close racing across all of the fleets. The series concludes tomorrow.

Sam's Success

Sam Hall was sailing at Coniston on Saturday where he secured a hat trick of wins and received a £15 prize.

Sunday Soaking

The wind seemed unexpectedly light when sailors turned up, but as the start time arrived, the wind picked up and the rain moved in - it was relentless until lunchtime. There were light patches, and William with Jo Watkins managed to find them on the single spinnaker reach of the course, but there were strong gusts from time to time too.

Although Neil Garrison in his Dart finished first on the water, it was Scumper in his Vareo that won on handicap from Jim Christie.

During lunch the wind freshened, and led to some more exciting reaches at times, but the shadow of Sale Fell still had its effect on racing and progress. William and Jo led the handicap, but they were beaten by Jim Christie in his Supernova on handicap. Scumper despite a couple of capsizes, held on to his position but was going to retire due to damage to his spinnaker pole, however he opted to wait for the shorten course signal. Little did he realise he would have to wait until the lead boat completed their lap some 10 mins later before the signal was sounded!

Although Mike beat Tim in the F15 fleet in both races, he did have to sneak past Tim in a lull going to mark 5 as Tim had mastered the first beat and gained a solid lead much to Mike's dismay (or was it surprise?)

Soggy Saturday

As the hosepipe ban continues, the lake is filling up - not because water is being saved but due to the amount of rain!!

The day started windy with intermittent showers, but the wind eased during the prolonged start sequence for the pursuit race! The lack of Mirrors meant the other fleets had an undue wait. Even with the long wait, Scumper managed to be several minutes late in his Vareo. Mike and Kayla quickly broke away and won the race with Tim and Ian 2nd.

The 2nd race was fleet racing - no-one in either fleet was particularly pushing hard for the start line! Scumper had a clear win from Jim Christie in the handicap fleet, while Mike beat Tim in the F15s.

Congratulations!

Many congratulations to vice commodore Stephen Kirkpatrick and his wife Claire following the birth of their daughter Georgina Elizabeth,  a sister for Henry and Thomas, who weighed in at 7lb11oz on Tuesday evening. Mother and baby doing well.

Well done to Emily for guessing it would be a girl called Elizabeth!

Sultry Sunday - Not!

Despite there being strong winds all around, the conditions were unexpectedly sailable. However, there were not many takers, presumably because of the poor forecast.

Mike and Kayla led the fleet, followed by Toggle in his Vareo, but Mike and Eric kept on the pace and were never far behind. On handicap Mike's F15 beat the Mike's GP.

In the afternoon race, the course had a couple of reaches that proved exhilarating when the gusts came through. Joe Watkins, thinking the wind had eased over lunch, opted to take out the Laser with a full rig, which proved a little too much on occasions as he had several capsizes, but carried on to the finish.

This time it was Mike Cowan that was in close contention with Mike Moore.  Mike Moore held his position on handicap and leads the series overall.

Soggy Saturday

As the hosepipe ban kicks in in some parts of the county, the rain came down. However, for a change, at least it was warm rain!

The winds were blustery all afternoon, but the straightforward triangular course led to some exciting sailing, some very hairy gybes, and several capsizes.

In the handicap fleet, Steve and Ruth in the Merlin finished 1st on the water and on handicap from Scumper in his Vareo. In the second race, Steve got off to a good start, but a wineglass spinnaker led to a capsize and his demise. William and Elaine in an RS400 finished 1st on the water but were beaten on handicap by Scumper.

In the F15s, Mike and Kayla won the 1st race from Tim and Ian. Ian had a better start in the 2nd race, and was leading when Mike retired when a fairlead pulled out.

Mike and Eric led the GPs, but a nosedive capsize led to their demise and Tim and Martin winning the race.

John Telford beat Mik Chappell in both of the Mirror races.

Scumper topped the chart in the capsize stakes with four capsizes, all well recovered from. Mike Fairlamb was sort of next having struggled to right his boat after capsizing taking down the spinnaker, he capsized another couple of times before limping home to shore. Then Steve was next with a couple of capsizes - both deliberate he claimed!!

Although it should be sunny tomorrow, higher winds are forecast again, so will we get any races in?

Topper NW Area Championships 3/4 July 2010

A healthy fleet of 25 boats took part in this year's NW Area championship. The wind conditions will have been challenging for some competitors, and as they were forecast to increase on Sunday an additional race was sailed on Saturday.

Andrew Green from Leigh & Lowton SC sailed consistently to secure four wins and the overnight lead from James Asquith from Redesmere SC.

As expected, the forecast gales came in, with various showers, and racing was cancelled on Sunday leaving the results as the overnight position. Congratulations to Andrew Green on his clear win.

Night Jar 1 July

The high winds must have put a few people off this week as the turnout of seven starters was surprisingly low

Youth Squad Update

Adam Savage from the RYA came to give a days training for the Youth Squad on June the 12th. Luckily many of the mornings trainees stayed on as only Ethan Dawson from the Youth Squad made it. Never mind, this means that Ethan will have the upper hand on the start line now! Adam went through the starting procedure over and over and coached the kids on the water. Judging by the smiles and screams we heard we think they enjoyed it!

It was pleasing to see that some of the trainees came back for more the week after and joined in on the Youth Squad racing so that there was a fleet of six toppers out in shifty wind conditions which meant the OD Robin Dawson had his hands full.

The next Youth Squad races are as follows:

Saturday 26th June 1pm
Saturday 24th July 1pm
Sunday 25th July 2.30

Volvo Champion Club Status

After almost two years of preparation we have been awarded Volvo RYA Champion Club status. The award will provide a basis upon which our Junior and Youth sections can develop and the young sailors involved will benefit from the programmes available from the Volvo Champion scheme. I’d like to thank all those Club members who’ve helped us to secure this prestigious status, especially Mike Fairlamb who has worked particularly hard.

In addition to the Youth development advantages the VCC status will provide us with free RYA coaching, annual volunteer grants, and many other benefits. This, together with the existing training and Youth Squad initiatives, will help to secure the future of our Club for generations to come.

Best wishes

Dave Nicholson

Max DeRedder

It is with sadness that we have learned that former member Max DeRedder has passed away. Max was a long standing member of the sailing club and held the office of sailing secretary for a short while. Our condolences go to his wife Pat.

His funeral will be held at 1pm on Monday 28 June in Gilcrux church, followed by committal at Distington crematorium about 2pm.

Weekend Series 26/27 June

Another glorious day for sailing, but the morning wind had faded at lunchtime. Before afternoon racing started the wind came back from the south only to be counteracted by a SW sea breeze 15 mins into racing!

Toggle must have still been hyped up after his weekend jaunt to Nothampton because he got into two tussles on the start line, both of which he should have had to turns for!. However Steve Hunt wasn't going to let him away a third time and Toggle had to do a 720 after colliding with Steve's boom coming into a mark.

The change of wind direction meant that Sale Fell had its typical effect on certain parts of the course and resulted in moving holes that split the fleet up a bit in the first race and compacted it in the second!

In the handicap fleet, Steve and Ruth in a Merlin Rocket beat Robbie D and Big E in an RS400 in the first race, while Robbie D beat Scumper, sailing his Vareo, in the second race.

Tim Knowles and Pete Bowmer each shared a win in the GP fleet, while Mik Chappell took two wins in the Mirrors.

On Sunday the wind was stronger, blustery, and still from the SW and the course area was again taken through the shadow of Sale Fell. There were numerous capsizes during the day, and as the Official Starter was keen to watch the England match, the two races were relatively short, and sailed without a break for lunch!

The handicap fleet had another two winners - Dave Lawson, sailing Val's Solo, in the 1st race and Scumper in the 2nd. However, Robbie D won overall.

Tim Knowles beat his competition into the ground (well they both retired!), and that was enough to win him the series with two 1sts.

No Mirrors sailed so overnight leader Mik Chappell won the series.

19/20 June

Although various people seemed to be playing away this weekend, there was still a full complement of racing for numerous members to go at. Shame the wind conditions of Saturday followed through into Sunday. The forecast direction kept getting interrupted by rogue gusts from all sorts of directions. As ever, Robbie D mastered the conditions and pulled out a massive lead with his super lightweight crew Erin to win the race by a handsome margin from Joan and Jack Hardie. Even in the last six or seven minutes of the race, Steve Hunt and Joan Hardie got a breeze that opened up a four minute lead on Scumper and William who had both been close on their tail at the previous mark!

In the F15s, Ian Macpherson with Sally crewing, took the honours from Mike and Kayla. Martyn Stephenson and Steve Hannah get a mention just for continuing to watch how it's all done from behind!

Pete (or is it Paul?) Bowmer won the GPs from Julian Cruickshank, while Eric Smith out performed Alan Waugh in the Mirrors.

The afternoon racing was devoted to another pennant race which took the fleet around the lake. Although the general wind was blowing in the southern end of the lake with a NW breeze, the sea breeze gusts came and went, and continued to spin around from various directions as they came down from Sale Fell such that after 40+ minutes it was Scumper in his Vareo, William and Elaine in an RS400, Steve and Ruth in a Merlin Rocket, then Mike and Kayla in a F15 in close contention at the leeward mark.

Scumper and Steve took the west shore, while William and Mike too the east shore on the way back. The wind continued to rise and fall, but the west shore route proved best this time. It was to be Steve and Ruth that won the Jimmy Lancaster Memorial Trophy by a small margin from Scumper.

Meanwhile, in the bay, the Juniors were having their own races, the results of which will be brought up to date next week.

Commodore Dave Nicholson gets a mention for being the best dressed OD, wearing a new fathers' day outfit, complete with shirt and tie. Don't think it's a trend that will catch on, and it doesn't quite come up to the standard of sailing legend EricTwiname who opted to test drive a Laser in a morning suit! (Don't think he wore the top hat though!)

One of those sailing away was Sam Hall who had two 1sts and a 2nd at West Kirkby Yacht Club in the NW Junior Travellers. While Bass had mediocre winds, West Kirkby had more challenging conditions that kept rescue crews busy but suited Sam. He won a T-shirt and is leading the series.

Toggle and Rory were sailing at Northampton in a Vareo open meeting and clearly had some close racing. Overall Rory was 4th and Toggle 5th

Saturday

Not sure what happened to the wind today. There was a strong breeze everywhere other than in the Bassenthwaite microclimate! The northerly wind that had been blowing throughout the morning eased and then had to fight other gusts from the east, as well as some gusts from a westerly sea breeze!

The northerly beat looked like it was going to be a fetch at the start, but the big winds shifts resulted in a beat at the end of the leg. William and Ruth were first to the windward mark ahead of John and Janis Halliday, but took advantage of some temporary gusts to plane away along the next two legs of the course. From then on it was a case of being in the right place at the right time as the wind came and went with the different wind directions. Although the race was shortened after 42mins, it was to be another 25mins before the rest of the fleets finished due to the easing wind.

Mike Fairlamb and Eric Smith had a bit of a tussle with Tim Knowles only to lose out by having to retire when they realised that they had rounded a mark the wrong way (and tried to get William to do the same!).

The continual changing winds, and calm patches led to the OD cancelling the 2nd race.

Sam's Success

Are there any more of these double Ss I can play?!

Sam Hall came second in the latest round of NW Junior Traveller's event held at Ullswater YC on Saturday

Soggy Sunday

As forecast, the day started damp and it didn't get any better. With the wind swinging around Sale Fell, there were patches of wind on the lake before the start but it seemed to settle from the SW as racing started. However, one lap in and the wind backed to the south, resulting in a lack of a beat, especially for the asymmetrics on a windward leeward course!

The lack of a beat, and lightish winds, meant the fleets stayed together. Of course, as the race finished the wind filled in from the SW reinstating the beat that should have been there throughout the race.

Just to add to their sogginess, Mike and Kayla managed to fall off their F15 as they were coming ashore. Shame there wasn't a camera handy...

The afternoon racing looked dire even as the fleet were heading for the start!. It didn't seem to get a lot better, though the wind did fill in after one lap of drifting, but again the beat was not there. The Asymmetrics were tacking with their gennakers from one reach to the next on their 'windward/leeward' course.

The light conditions suited Joan and Jack Hardie in their RS200 rather than the Vareos. Scumper had a lie in/late start so Toggle was 2nd in the morning race, but Scumper beat Toggle in the afternoon race.

In the MJM Trophy, Mike and Eric won the morning race from Tim and Ian in a F15. In the afternoon race Alan Nicholson beat Mike and Kayla

Sunny Saturday

After a damp week the sun has reappeared. Football fever may have depleted the numbers today, but those that went out enjoyed mixed winds, which were shifting as the main wind direction fought with the sea breeze.

John and Jack Telford sailed in a Mirror and led the pursuit race from start to finish, although Mike Fairlamb and Eric Smith in a GP were closing the gap.

Scumper has bought into the Vareo fleet, and had some good racing with Hugh and Toggle.

Mike and Kayla again dominated Tim and Ian in the F15s, and thereby strengthened his lead in the Dodd Trophy. Similarly Mike and Eric beat Tim Knowles to consolidate his lead in the Mustard pot.

Although John Telford beat Mik in the Mirrors, Mik still leads the Albert Bates Trophy.

Rain forecast for tomorrow :(

Fleet Challenge

From a hazy, overcast morning with no wind, a light breeze quickly filled in from the north east. There were occasional holes, but the fleet generally kept moving even if at a slow pace.

Telf opted to sail his Mirror single handed, and went for a port on port start only to be challenged by a Merlin Rocket, F15 and RS400 - that didn't stop him going on to win the race from Mike Fairlamb, if only by a few secs. However, Mike's 2nd was enough to put him in pole position with another two races to go.

After lunch the wind did not look at all promising, but it did fill in again from the north and racing got under way, albeit without much of a beat (Apart from the final leg!). The bunching of the fleet, combined with the use of personal handicaps caused the results to be a bit topsy turvy.

As the forecast rain came in, and the wind eased there were substantially reduced takers for a final race, which seemed as if was to be the best race of the day, as the wind had filled in from the west, and caused a couple of capsizes before the start. However, it was not to last. By the end of the first beat the wind had eased considerably, the next reach turned into a drifter and a beat! To cap it all the rain was persistent, and the drift continued to the end of the race. Alan Waugh came out on top, with William and Elaine 2nd, which was enough to give them pole position for the series.

The highlight of the afternoon was Toddy trying to take his buoyancy aid off before his over trousers!

Saturday

This weekend's sailing comprises a six race series. The sun is out; there is a slight breeze; will it all last?

In fact it did last all afternoon. The sea breeze caused the direction of the beat to swing more to the west, and there were some good gusts to enable the occasional plane.

Mike Moore could have been practising his ballet, as he had to do some pirouettes after a collision with Mike Fairlamb on the startline of the 2nd race. The GPs generally seemed to be doing a mop up job by following the fleets after having late starts - it was Val and Ken Bell that were late for the 2nd race, and Mike Fairlamb late for the 3rd race (well he had gone ashore for a brew!).

All in all an excellent afternoon's racing - three races tomorrow, though we can't be assured of such good weather

Timeless?!

Here's a pic of the Lawson family from Bass Week over 40 years ago!

Some things never change - Jack, Carol and David look just the same, while Pete is half naked - as usual!

 

 

 

 

Bank Holiday Monday

Sun's shining! No wind though :(

However, the wind did fill in and settle down from the south eventually, so the OD opted to postpone and have an early lunch. Shortly after the 1pm start, the sea breeze kicked in and the wind direction changed to a south westerly without any particular holes surprisingly! It did mean that there was no longer a beat in the race, so it was shortened after 30 mins. William and Elaine did lead the way, with Steve and Ruth in a Merlin Rocket closely on their tail, but the lead was not sufficient to make an impression on the overall results. Rory Yardley in a Vareo won from Steve Hunt.

The second race started in a good breeze but eased from time to time. William again led but was unable to break free from the pack. Robin Dawson worked his way through the fleet to finish 2nd and 2nd on handicap behind Andy Smith sailing a Mirror single handed.

With a 2nd and 3rd Robin's consistent results were sufficient for him to win the Paul Carruthers' Memorial Trophy yet again. Mike Moore and Sally finished 2nd overall.

Sunday

Sunday racing was exciting - the winds were not quite as strong as forecast but everyone enjoyed several thrills, and there were various spills to keep the rescue crews busy.

Jon Denwood teamed up with Ian Preston in a F15 to give Mike Moore a run for his money, and they won the morning race. Similarly Dave Lawson sailed with Ken Bell, while wife Lynn sailed with Mike Fairlamb, who gave her a dunking. Dave won the race from Tim Knowles.

Mr and Mrs Bean again took command of the handicap fleet to win ahead of Toggle in his Vareo, and Neil Garrison in his Dart

The afternoon race was the RNLI pennant, sailed around the lake. Although the wind seemed to ease over lunch it reappeared with a vengeance resulting in many capsizes as the fleet ran/reached down the lake only to have to fight through heavy waves all the way back up! Although Scumper and Rob Cook broke away, the conditions favoured the F15s, and it was Jon Denwood that again triumphed over 100sec ahead of Scumper, then Mike Fairlamb with Dave Lawson crewing (Mike managed to capsize Dave too!)

With racing over, sailors came back to numerous ladies in their Sunday best, complete with hats, having prepared afternoon tea! Strange thing is they didn't have any tea, and they didn't manage to eat it all without the sailors' help!

Would you believe it?

High winds blew from the south all morning, the Hodgkin boys went out for a practice and worked their socks off beating up the lake, but enjoyed some of the spinnaker legs back. Racing was scheduled for 2.30, and the OD was keen to start on time, but it was as if someone had turned off the power. The wind died and it took the lead boat almost an hour to complete the first lap - the final 'beat' was deadly, but filled in slightly to enable the fleet to finish within half an hour of the winning boat - Phil and Rob Smith in an RS200.

Only the F15s stayed out to sail the 2nd race of the day, and Mike Moore with Sally crewing won. Meanwhile Zefer, with nothing much to do opted to jump a fence, got it wrong, and ended up in casualty...

There was a Mediterranean themed bring and eat Disney fancy dress on Saturday night, and here are some of the costumes that appeared!

A protest was heard regarding last Sunday's Asymmetric Cup, which resulted in the race being declared null and void. The updated results are shown here

Well that's what seemed to happen in the first race yesterday! Or was it bribery and corruption?

Mike Moore built up such a big lead he didn't realise that he was heading for the wrong mark until he realised the rest of the fleet (well Tim and Ian) were heading to 3 (not 2!). Despite not catching up the lost ground, the results still showed Mike as winner!

In the handicap fleet, Scumper had a late start but was miraculously awarded first place when the number of laps were miscounted. Bean wasn't going to let that remain uncorrected for long! (Correct results on home screen)

Sunday is glorious again and the wind has strengthened as the morning progressed. Should be an excellent sail.

Mr and Mrs Bean again took command of the asymmetric fleet, ahead of Toggle, while Mike and Kayla led the general handicap fleet, despite initially rounding the wrong windward mark, from Dave and Lynn in a borrowed GP.

Herb, always happy to insult, was on the receiving end when he donned his shorts to reveal those knobbly knees of his!

Captain Calamity Campbell joined the start crew for the afternoon race, and all hell let loose. Not sure why, or whose fault it was, but we'll blame OD Toddy - the asymmetrics should have had a simple, two mark, windward/leeward course. When it had four marks in it, most of the fleet converted it to the two mark version apart from Joan and Jack Hardie and it ended up that only Joan was awarded a finish position. Shame to waste a wonderful afternoon's racing like that.

Mike and Kayla again won, but this time from Andy and Katia in a Mirror.

Bank holiday next weekend - dig out your Disney costumes! Even if it's just Mary Poppins umbrella as it's bound to be needed on a Bank holiday :(

Sunday Racing

A duller start, with the winds eased too, was a pleasant change for some achy sailors after Saturday! With just a selection of boats on the water they all sailed in the handicap Dodd Trophy series. Although William and Elaine led the way, the offwind legs were not always as windy as the beats, so the gap between them and Tim widened and narrowed as the race went on. It was on the reach before the final beat that William realised his rudder was no longer being held in place by the transom pintle - not good when the boat is on a reach with the gennaker flying! A capsize was avoided, but their race was over leaving Tim to go on and win his third race of the weekend.

The afternoon race was a pennant race for the Albert Bates Memorial Trophy, and as usual it was a round the laker. William had borrowed Keith's F15 for the afternoon, but little did he know what he was letting Elaine in for. With a westerly wind, Sale Fell had maximum effect in terms of downdraughts and wind seemingly coming from numerous directions at once. Even on a run, there would be a shift that meant the spinnaker had to be gybed, and then fairly rapidly gybed back again! A missing mark 15 caused some confusion so the rescue boat became a temporary mark. William and Jim were in the right place at the right time and broke away with John Halliday following fairly closely behind. Some of the shifts caught Jim out and he had several capsizes and even did a vertical 360 at one stage when his boat fully turtled. At 50 mins, it was a relatively slow time to the leeward mark and the changeable winds continued on the beat(?) back up the lake. Although William broke away every now and again, Tim kept coming back, and he was first to clear Scarness and stayed ahead of William to the finish. On handicap he took his fourth and final win of the weekend

Saturday Racing

Good racing conditions that led to some exciting racing, and various capsizes by Jim, Jo and Mik.

Dave Lawson and Robbie D, with Ethan, were both in Mirrors, pushing Mik Chappell's position down the fleet a little, but he still leads the AB Series.

In the Celebrity Glass Pursuit, racing was relatively close with four different fleets on the same final leg. Tim Chittenden, with Ian Macpherson won and strengthened his lead from William and Elaine.

The second race was part of the long series Dodd Trophy, but starting was more like a pursuit with Tim and then William following on some minutes after the others! They say patience is a virtue, but not one that the OD was displaying today! :)

Mirror, Laser and Handicap Open

Final Results

There was again an abundance of wind for the Mirror, Laser and Handicap open meeting being held over the weekend. Although the forecast wind strength was perfectly sailable, there were numerous squalls passing through double the strength to about force 5. Pam Bath in her Mirror was the first boat to be caught out by the gusts.

A total of 19 boats entered, 11 Mirrors and the balance in the Handicap fleet.

The gusts continued throughout the afternoon, and there were a couple of casualties in each fleet in the first race - the most uncomfortable one being Jon Miller breaking a rib whilst crewing an Osprey! The stronger winds suited the doubled handers in the Mirrors with David Coady winning and Jack Lawson 2nd.

The visitors continued to dominate the results in the 2nd race which was won by Roy Platford, and David Coady 2nd, giving David the overnight lead.

Scumper and Zefer, took two wins in the Handicap fleet to take overnight lead. Toggle with a 2nd and 3rd was lying 2nd overall!

On Sunday, the wind strength varied almost as much as Saturday, albeit from a much lower baseline of practically nil! This has caused various frustrations, and fluctuations in position. Robbie D opted out after the first race, which Scumper which went on to win ahead of Mike Moore. The conditions favoured Stephen Kirkpatrick in his Vago in the 2nd race (or was it being in the right place at the right time?) and he took pole position ahead of Mike Moore (always the bridesmaid?...). The final outcome was a win for Scumper with Mike second.

Mike Fairlamb tried his hand at the helm of a Mirror again and secured three firsts, but it was Roy Platford from Wigan that won overall from Jack Lawson.

Catapult European Championships

Final Results

Monday

The cold frosty night meant we started the day in glorious sunshine. The forecast northerly was much more reluctant to settle down and kept swinging between north and west. The wind strength consequently varied considerably and came through in waves, but generally the conditions were light and testing. By the end of the first beat, boats from all starts were merging on the windward mark!

Paul Ellis, seen here receiving his prize from Claire Kirkpatrick, continued his mastery of the conditions to finish 2nd behind Cliff Awtill, but won the championship overall with a clear lead 8pts ahead of George Evans.

Club racing was testing, and there were various ups and downs depending on who was in the right place as the wind filled in for a few minutes. William and Lesley made an amazing recovery after a dreadful first beat to be challenging the leading RS400s. Scumper with Zefer, and Robbie D with Big E had some good racing but seemed to gyrate around William as the wind came and went.

An unexpected capsize by Tim Knowles on his way ashore seemed to raise a loud cheer from the many people that noticed it, though it did then put him in a situation that caused Mik Chappell to capsize as well!

In the final race, as various series winners had been determined, there was some apathy and a lot less takers. However, William joined forces with Alan Smith in a F15 after many years, and joined in with the racing. Although the other two boats waited for him at the start line, that was where the courtesy stopped, and they soon disappeared only to be passed by William when the wind filled in from the clubhouse. Alas, that state of play was not to last, and Mike went on to win the race and make it a clean sweep. Calamity Campbell was at it again, trying to take out the Vice Commodore at one of the gybe marks. He admitted it was the first set of turns he had done in years - he just didn't admit how many more sets he perhaps should have done!

Weekend winners - Phil Smith in the handicap fleet, Mike Moore in F15, Paul Bowmer in the GPs, and Alan Waugh in the Mirrors.

Sunday

The morning has started bright and dry, and the winds are forecast to pick up to 12mph, so hopefully there will be good sailing winds again. Fortunately the winds did fill in, and for those that got into the wind streams they were able to enjoy some thrilling racing.

Overnight leader Paul Ellis took the first race of the day, and together with George Evans, they are getting a good margin clear of the rest of the fleet. Paul continued his winning ways with another two 1sts, securing the championship. But Gareth Ede has been able to discard his DNF and is currently lying 2nd. One final race tomorrow to finalise the overall positions.

In club racing, Mr and Mrs Bean in their RS200 were a constant challenge for the RS400s, and secured two convincing wins on handicap, and a 2nd to sit in overnight lead for the May Holiday Trophy.

Mike and Kayla had three straight wins over Ian Campbell and Keith Thomas in the F15s, and new member P(?) Bowmer and his wife took command of the GP fleet with three straight wins as well.

Only one race was sailed in the Mirror fleet, and it was won by John Telford sailing with son Jack, from Mik Chappell.

Robin Crawley leads the Topper fleet series with two 1sts and a 2nd, over Olivia Storey.

...and there's more tomorrow!

To keep the sailors' minds active, there will be an evening of board games

Saturday

The weather is dry, the wind is light and the catapults are all blown up and raring to go! The wind is due to come in from the north so hopefully racing will get underway as planned, even if cooler than it should be for May day!

The wind did fill in from the North East, and brought with it some good planing conditions at times as well as some rain :(

Eleven Catapults took to the water, and Gareth Ede led the way in the first race but had to retire from the second race. Stuart Ede did not have much more luck - breaking his boom in the first race, managing to secure third, but unable to sail the second race. So it was some consistent sailing from Paul Ellis, with two 2nds, who is overnight leader.

In club racing there were a couple of spills - Mik Chappell capsized tacking away from William and Lesley in an RS400. Toggle found some of the tight reaches challenging (and I think he capsized, but not certain!). It was Robbie D and Big E that led the fleet to win on handicap. In the second race, the wind eased as Robin sailed the final lap, increasing his average lap time, and resulting in Toggle winning the race (perhaps he'll be buying OD Scumper an extra pint tonight?)

Ian Campbell made a return to the water, sailing with Keith Thomas in his F15 - amazing how Ian's kept hold of that old sailing suit from possibly 15 years ago! Anyway, it didn't bring him enough luck to beat Mike Moore and Kayla - perhaps time to buy a new one?!

The Spring dinner was held in the club house and enjoyed by 70 members and visiting sailors. It was topped off with a quiz (won by the visitors!), and a ditty writing competition starting 'There once was a sailor ...' Ian Preston's winning ditty was inspired by Mik's fire raising antics (only to be repeated by the Trustees table!)

RIB is Named

The wheels of bureaucracy may turn slowly, but we get there in the end! Our RIB (newest rescue boat) has been adorned with a formal name plate 'Gerald' in memory of former Commodore Gerald Powell, father of Emma Smith , who passed away a couple of years ago.

Sunday Racing

The day started off bright but with a light north westerly, and numerous calm patches of water. Racing did get underway on time, and the wind filled in a bit more for a while, but faded before the end as it started to swing to a westerly. It was Mr and Mrs Bean in their RS200 that broke well away to win the morning race from Jim Christie in a Supernova and Joe Watkins sailing well in a laser. Mike Moore and Kayla continue to dominate the Blencathra Trophy for FFs, as do Mike Fairlamb and Eric in the GPs, each securing another win. Andy Smith, crewed by Katia, took the honours from Alan Waugh in the Mirrors.

The afternoon race was a pennant in aid of the Calvert Trust, and as ever took the fleet down the lake. With winds being lighter, the OD took pity and only sent them as far as mark 11 at Bassenthwaite church. The wind having swung back towards the north again resulted in the wind being steadier than expected, but also meant that the fleets were relatively close together at the leeward mark. Neil Garrison in his Dart led to the leeward mark, closely followed by Roy Blackburn in his Vareo then Mike Moore. The beat back slowed down the Dart leaving Mike first and Roy second, even after the personal handicaps were calculated.

The Youth Squad have been out again this weekend. Luke Howarth won Saturday's racing, while Cristina Tully and Ethan shared the honours with a race each in the Sunday series

Sunny Saturday

Sun though with a cool westerly breeze was the order of the day. Racing started with a Celebrity Glass pursuit, and although leading, Mike Fairlamb with Eric Smith, misread the course and the lead passed over to Tim Chittenden with Ian Macpherson crewing.

The second race was some of the championship long series. Toggle again suffered some rig failure and had to retire. Sam Hall in a laser won from Tim Chittenden and William Carruthers with Elaine Hunt in the RS400

Sun Shades

The webcam has been struggling in any half decent weather so we've treated it to some sun shades! :) Just need to position them properly if they work ok

As ever, the high pressure has brought the sun but meant that the wind has been light.

However, the weather has tempted out Andy and Emma Smith - is he going back to his roots in a Mirror?!!

Sam's Winning Ways Continue

Sam Hall competed in the  first North West traveller event of the season at Hollingworth Lake near Rochdale last week. He was first in all three races in the youth section (under 19) and was presented with a dry bag

New Season Has Started

On Sunday, there were two races for the appropriately named Starters Prize. With the morning’s wind strength at 18mph gusting 40mph (gale force 8) it was not surprising that there were only six competing boats.

The honour of being the first boat on the water went to Tim Chittenden crewed by Carl Arthur in their stable Flying Fifteen keelboat. Jim Christie capsized on the way to the start.

After the start was signalled it was the turn of the RS400 of Robbie D and Big E to capsize whilst Toggle retired with rig failure. This allowed Bean and Naomi Smith to secure first place in their RS200 from Scumper in his Laser.

After lunch they were back out and Robbie D broke his rig, capsized and retired leaving Bean to take a further win and, with it, the series victory. Scumper again finished in second place with Toggle third.

Another One That Got Away!

Hi all – When I collected my boat on 1 March for much needed painting etc, I had set off back home only to find between Junction 40 & 39 on the M6 that I had left my boat cover behind. So – back I went. The attached pic was taken when I arrived at the club earlier in the day for the first time.

When I returned, I thought I’d just stretch my legs a bit and walked round the corner of the club house to see an otter gambolling in the water just beyond the grassy point in the attached pic. Needless to say I did not have camera or phone this time – So – it’s like the proverbial story about ‘The One that got way?? !!! ….’ Honest – I really did see an otter, and it made me feel quite privileged. There had been some guys working on the Race Hut in the morning, but they’d gone by the time I returned about 2pm-ish

I gather no sightings of the otters have been reported since the floods.

All the best

Pre-season update

Those Members who have visited the club recently will have noticed a number of activities underway and more are planned for the near future, for example:

Following the flood damage in November the boat house and oar store doors have been replaced (that’s  the room below the race office) and the window in the oar store has been replaced.

A temporary repair to the main cold water feed pipe to the clubhouse is still in place in the back field. The underground pipe in the back field has become brittle and a number of leaks were identified following the recent freeze. As part of a major refurbishment of the hot water storage system in the clubhouse (including solar panels on the clubhouse roof (subject to planning approval)) we will be replacing the cold water feed pipe from the road through Dubwath to the clubhouse in its entirety.

You may have noticed that the flagpole has been taken down for repairs. Now that the structure has dried out and been assessed it’s obvious that it will need complete replacement. We’re looking to replace the existing structure with an alternative one and possibly in a different position.  However, in the mean time, the existing structure will undergo a repair and will be re-erected temporarily.

The Bates is being fitted with dual batteries and a split charging system in the hope that the engine will start reliably this year. If the bilge pump works overtime again (and let’s hope we don’t have another wet summer!) it will hopefully only flatten one of the batteries.

We’re in the process of assessing suitable replacement grass cutting machinery for the new season that will hopefully be more robust than the previous machines (although to date no fully submersible equipment has been found!).

During last years floods many of the remaining boat tie-downs were damaged as a result of boats floating above them and pulling them out. It is hoped that we will replace all the tie-downs progressively throughout the coming season with those of a standard design so that grass cutting around them is easier.

Following the very generous donation by one of our Members to start our training boat fund the fund has grown in leaps and bounds and has reached over £9400.00 so far. To date we’ve purchased three GRP Mirrors and a race rigged Topper to boost the Club boat fleet. My sincere thanks go to those Members who started and to those who have subsequently added +to the fund and to EON plc and North West Projects Ltd for their generous donations.

We’re hoping to give the family room and bar area a coat of paint in the next few weeks.

If any of you are willing to give up a few hours of your time to help with the above projects please contact Nick Orton (House), Mark Somerville (Grounds) or myself and we’ll point you in the direction of the relevant tools etc. (please don’t leave it to the same few volunteers).

Our floating jetty has also suffered as a result of the frozen conditions and one of the floatation blocks is damaged. Unfortunately the company that made the original floats no longer exists so an alternative will have to be sourced. It will be necessary to lift the front section of the jetty out of the water to remove the remnants of the existing float and fit a new one  - just another task to add to the list.

What I said at the annual dinner about the demise of our trusty David Brown tractor has proved to be unfounded and thanks to the sterling efforts of Ken and his team the tractor is running again despite being fully submerged in the floods and subjected to temperatures of -15 Degrees C shortly afterwards. It will, we hope, be on site again shortly.

And finally, the 2010 handbook and the latest bumper edition of Foxy Tales are at the printers and will be with you shortly. Many thanks to those of you who have contributed to the publications.

Best wishes for an enjoyable and successful sailing season in 2010

Once a sailor..

... always a sailor?! As ever, many of us just cannot resist the temptation of the water especially through these cold winter months. There are those that will even break the ice to be able to launch their boat! Then there are those that fly off in search of some winter warmth.
This year Pete and Toni Nuttall are in Auckland and took to the water in relatively windy conditions (even though the camera doesn't particularly show it).

Not sure what these pics show, but Pete is at the helm ....

 

... and Toni is on the grinder!!
I suppose Pete will say that's what crews are for!

It Never Rains....

A really big burst pipe in the roadway under the back field but United Utilities stop tap wont shut off so the water meter has been going berserk and has been running for a while. Toggle and a few others tried to find the leak but had to get a digger. We have had to cut the pipe and double it over as a temporary measure as you can see but this means there is no water to the club house at all so there is NO WATER TO FLUSH TOILETS etc.

We are trying to get a temporary supply sorted but United Utilities said it wasn't an emergency so it would take 12 weeks to repair their stop tap!

Winter Walk

Thanks to Keith Thomas for an update following the first social event of the year - a walk which took a route through Wythop Forest for a high level view of the lake

Flooding  left a mass of debris on the footpath

Becky Dawson and her galley slaves preparing food for the walkers

The walk was soooo tiring..

Sailing season will soon be here - Robbie D and Ethan waiting, trying to get the flagpole lowered for maintenance, and the safety officer is on a rescue mission - the ice has caused the Bates mooring to sink and he's off to save it!

Winter Wonderland

Did you spot the snowman on the webcam? Various people have been at the club enjoying the magnificent, magical, views. If you have any photos to share, please send them to us to be loaded on the website.

58th Annual General Meeting

At the AGM approx 40 members voted on the following

There followed an open discussion on various matters stemming from the following points

a) Does the Club racing programme support close racing and help sailors improve?

b) Does our taster session/training scheme directly feed into the Club’s racing programme and provide a logical step up from training to racing and is this what the Club wishes to happen?

No answers were determined, but it was accepted that class racing helps improve sailors racing skills
