Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 14th September 2011

This time last year we were in Northern Spain, for me it´s the best place to be ; this year I´m visiting the Rehabilitation Center in Vera, having had an argument with my steps.

The lads have rallied round, giving the “Drascombe” a face lift, a job I had just started. Dinghies are out for me for the time being. However, last Saturday I was invited to join Ian, Michael and Lynne to sail for the day on “Blitzen”; Ian´s 25 ft sailing cruiser; if ever you are looking for Ian, just go to where the laughter is coming from.

The last couple of Sundays have been good for the Dinghies too. Houria was on the water in the “Pastinaca” receiving tuition from Jo; A lasie with a lot of sailing experience, thanks Jo. Most Sundays I see a new face enquiring about the Club; It´s a pleasure for me to meet you. If you are interested come and have a chat.

Looking for a Dinghy ? There is an “Albacore” for sale at Retamar, just North of Almería. The “Albacore” designed by Uffa Fox, is a sea kindly 15 ft. dinghy. The dinghy is complete with a Combination Road -Trailer etc. If you want to know more give me a call, the price: 600 Euros. To give you some idea of prices, a new “Pastinaca”, 13 ft. is 3.440 Euros.

In Santa Maria and Cadiz, were our Sailing Federation is based, the local Ferry Boat “Adriano III” built in 1955 sank within 7 minutes after hitting the Quay at what I can only imagine was full speed. All the passengers (40), it is capable of carrying many more, were saved. It was the passengers who a alerted the Skipper, but too late!

So remember to stick to the speed restriction when you enter Garrucha Harbour.

I as write, The Americas Cup Series is taking place in Plymouth; Nine 45 ft. Catamarans are competing. There have been some spectacular Racing and capsizes; with Helicopter shots and footage from the shore and water, why haven't we seen any of this on BBC or ITV ?! as far as I know. With the Olympics next year you would think TV would be promoting the Sports. You will however find it on “You tube” via your computer; next time I write we will have the Results.

Remember, the “Extreme 40 Catamarans” will be in Almería 12 to 16 of October.

Hope to see you at “Ricón del Purto” Garrucha, 11 am any Sunday

Take care
