Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 8th August 2011

You would have thought after 26 years I would be used to the Spanish Summers! I recall wearing my white overalls to paint the house now I´m exhausted in my mini skirt! It´s cooler on the water but not every one wants to be out in the midday Sun. Quite a few of our Dinghy sailors are in the UK, I hope to hear from some of them. The Cruiser fleet always have a full complement while the rest of us sit in the shade of the Club house; sipping cool drinks and talking Boats. One of the major topics is the forth coming “IberCaja Regatta” on the 6th and 7th of August at Garrucha. I expect we shall seeing sailing cruisers from Aguilas, Mazarón etc.

Our only entry will be “Blitzen” owned by Ian, small but with beautiful lines, that´s the Yacht! The skipper naturaly will be Ian, his crew are David and Rodolfo. The yacht is 25 ft. it they get the right winds thats suit her, they could do well and reap their rewards!

Where would I like to be next week the 8th to 14th ? At the Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy, the Venue for the 2012 Sailing Olympics; There will be a Regatta simulating the Olympics, following the Games Rules where only one sailor per event is allowed. The Event offers a great opportunity for Sailors, Coaches and support Staff from around the World, to test the sailing conditions and gain knowledge of the venue. The Dinghies Racing at this Event will be the “Finn”, “Laser”, “Laser Radial”, “470”, “49 er”, Mens and Ladies “Keel boat” and the “Windsurfer” for men and women. I wish we had a few of them in our Club.

I really should be in the UK, Act 5 of the “Extreme 40 Catamaran Series” is at Cows 6th to 12th of August. After Boston, USA, the first in the Series are our favourites Team New Zealand, second is Artemis, racing for Sweden, third is The Wave Muscat for Oman with the British Skipper Leagh McMillan. Remember the penultimate Act in the Series will be in Almeria at the beginning of October, not to worry, I will remind you.

I maybe taking some time off during August but you will find members to talk to every Sunday at “Rincón del Puerto” at Garrucha Marina, 11 am.

Take care
