Brunel Badger TR Day Two

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

On Sunday the round robin with 55 races was completed. In very shifty winds that gradually died off, the gold and silver fleet only managed to get to race 13 out of 20 before further races were impossible. The final results after 10 races left CCS and Reading winning the silver fleet and Southampton winning the Brunel Badger 2011, congratulations!

Volenteers Wanted for Dinghy Show, 5th & 6th March

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

This year DWSC is returning to the Dinghy Show for the first time in several years; most of the preparation has been completed, however we are still looking for a little bit of help with –

1. We would like to borrow a TV stand, preferabley a tall one that holds the monitor at head height.

2. We would like some help on Sunday taking the stand down and carrying it out to parked vehicles.

3. We are still looking for a lady, with an “outgoing and a vibrant personality” .

There are a few tickets spare for those above.

While we are happy to see you at the show, we would prefer the stand not to become a “chat zone” for existing club members, we are there to attract and talk to potential new members.

We will let you know how we get on. If you can help please see Gabrielle in the office.

Winter Warm Up Races 3 & 4

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Over 40 boats turned out this week in what can only be called testing conditions for the second week in a row. With a blustery southerly wind averaging 21 knots and gusting over 30 the racers were in for a wild ride.

Whilst the fleet headed out across the reservoir our 3 safety boats did a good job of shepherding competitors to the starting area from where most boats stepped up to the challenge and embraced the fantastic exhilarating ride ahead.

See Mike’s link below for results.
