    Tamesis Racing Over the Past Few Weeks

    Hooray we are now actively racing, sometimes drifting, but very relieved and pleased to get out on the river and SAIL. The current has slowed down a lot, and we have had some good winds especially those northerlies. We are now into the Thursday evening races followed by a supper prepared by our Chef Jean-Michel. The two races on Sundays are always followed by lunch and drinks in the bar.

    Sunny Start to the Summer Series Sunday 14th April

    It was a huge relief to be able to actually start the Summer Series on Sunday. The sun shone and the wind had lightened from the day before. The stream was still strong enough to cause some head scratching, especially at the marks. OOD Charles Fox set a starboard hand loop, with and upstream start. The Westerly came and went and sometimes was strong enough for competitors to plane!

    Easter Egg Fun and Games 2024 and Capture the Paddle

    The stream was yet again too strong to run the programmed Pursuit Race, so the Juniors got together and invented the game 'Capture the Paddle' to play up on the recreation ground. This involved two paddles and teams of approximately 5 each. There was a lot of walking, tagging, and eventually the two paddles ended up the same end. It was impressive to see the age range of the participants. You only needed to be

    Racing Sunday 17th March

    The start of the day was very unpromising. The current was too strong for boats to be able to stem the stream with the slight westerly, so the 1030 series of races was cancelled. Come 1130 the wind had strengthened so it was possible to get some sailing in. This was the penultimate Sunday in the Winter series. The course was short well in sight of the club. Sometimes it paid to
