Racing Sunday 25th January Cancelled

Racing had to be cancelled again due to the strong stream and adverse wind. The only occupants of the hard was the family of Egyptian Geese/Ducks. Members slowly gathered in the club house for a coffee and many enjoyed a delicious hot lunch of Cottage Pie, Green Veg followed by Lemon Drizzle cake or a tasty sandwich. All washed down by drinks from the bar. Thanks to Rupert Fletcher More »

Racing Sunday 18th February

The club was able to hold racing on Sunday, albeit the 1030 Blue series had to be cancelled due to the strength of the stream, and uncertain wind strength. The White Series races took place from 1130 helped by a stronger Westerly with some North in it, over a very short course loop course set in sight of the club. Turn outs were lower than usual. Seven Merlins started and finished, some More »

Uffa Spoon Finds New Holder

The Vice Commodore's Dinner was held on Saturday 17th February. Fifty plus members turned out to be treated to an excellent three course meal, and amusing speeches. Vice Commodore Peter Johnson introduced the main proceedings by giving a brief account of the origins of the Uffa Spoon.

Racing on a Blustery Sunday 4th February

This Sunday there was a good wind across the river. Race Officer Charles Fox set a dogleg course with some good lee-bowing action in front of the Club. In the Blue Race the Enterprise Captain managed a 'stupid' capsize when attempting to roll tack whilst in contact with the top mark. He was very disappointed not to compete in the White Race. The conditions brought improved turnouts in all fleets. In the Blue Races More »

Horse Race Evening 3rd February

Some thirty plus members and friends gathered for a very convivial Horse Race evening on the weekend. Race Course Steward Jim Green compered the evening of seven races and Bonnie Green, David Baker, and Jim ran the betting side. Horses were numbered 1 to 8 and all you had to do was pick a number and buy a ticket for the sum of a £1 coin. If you wished you could buy 8, More »

Racing Sunday 28th January

Report Marcus Chavasse The sun came out, the winds were light (good for getting back in the groove after the previous week's weather) and provided nearly enough forward movement to make progress against the stream. Race officer Chris Pollard set a straightforward up and down course. Straightforward that is, apart from the need to sail out and round the windward mark. In the Blue Enterprise race, Robin Broomfield and Paul Bloomfield came More »
