Commodore’s Cup: We have a winner!

Last Sunday, 08/05/2016, saw a full house with 14 members competing for Croydon Sailing Club’s much sought after Commodore’s Cup.

After the second race, DO Janice announced that we had members in joint first, joint third and joint fifth places, so nerves were kept on edge for a few moments longer while tie breaker calculations were worked out (combined times for both races), and the results were:

  1. Neil (Laser)
  2. Ray (Comet)
  3. Richard (Laser)
  4. Tony (Byte CII)
  5. Robert (Comet)
  6. Geoff (Comet)

So, congratulations to Neil, 2016’s proud winner of Commodore’s Cup!

Push the Boat Out on 15/05/2016 (no racing)

Just a quick reminder that this Sunday, 15/05/2016, is our Push the Boat Out taster sailing day, so there will be no race session this week for our regular members.

In a change from our usual open day, this year will be our first taster sailing day, where members of the public have the opportunity, for a small fee, to take part in a one hour sailing experience under the careful supervision of one of our more experienced members.

Spaces are limited and going fast, so if you’re interested please contact us.

CSC takes it to the next level!

Congratulations to Rainer, Gabi, David, Cathy, Mark, Paul, Joe, Amea, Anneliese and Brian: the first ever graduates of an official RYA Level 2 training course at Croydon Sailing Club!

After gaining recognition as an RYA Training Centre last year, instructors Denis and Neil, with senior instructor Simon Harding, put 10 CSC members through their paces over the May bank holiday weekend, refining the techniques they learned at Level 1 and teaching useful new skills including picking up a bouey (tying your dinghy to a fixed object), coming alongside (e.g. parking next to the safety boat) and man overboard (rescuing a person or object from the lake).

It was fantastic to see the amazing progression over the two-day course and a great weekend had by all.
