Victor the victor

After 4 glorious days of wall to wall sunshine congratulations to Victor for taking the honours for the 2019 BBC Easter trophy, scraping home by one point from Una who sat out the last race in the series on safety boat duty. Thanks to all who competed. Next up a downriver race followed by the start of the Spring Series.

PS Anyone know where the Trophy is??

2019 Handicaps

The 2019 handicaps are in - no change for most of the classes but the Lasers have sneaked in with an extra point, well deserved some might say...... will start using the new handicaps from 1st April.

Winter Series 2019

Well the good news is Spring is well on the way and the Winter Series has now finished. Congratulations, yet again, to Una who was given a run for her money by Guillaume with Richard J not far behind, followed by veteran sailor Nick W in 4th place only 5 points back. As for the rest of us we were also rans.

Time to stowaway the dry suits and unpack the shorts - Spring Series starts soon but not before a couple of Downriver races and the BBC Easter Cup.

130 years old

Great turnout for a balmy winters day race, 130 years to the day after the Club was formed - Happy Birthday Ranelagh!

Matthews Commemoration Race / Downriver Series 2018

With the elite Merlin sailors off enjoying the Alpine snow or raising another glass in their French and German chateaux and the Solo sailors preferring the company of their families and a home fire it was left to the impoverished, some say intrepid, Laser sailors ably supported by Una to sail the last race of the year. By sailing we really mean drifting but nonetheless a tightly fought race was duly completed and congratulations go to Richard (Jarvis) who is the 2018 winner of the Matthews Commemoration Race.
