Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 16th February 2011

Had our Club House been open I would have bought every one a drink! to celebrate the re-launching of the “Kittywake”. What a joy she is to sail, Gaff rigged with two headsails a Misen and Mainsail; even with 4 old salts on board. There were quite a few on the water that day, enjoying the near perfect conditions and it will get better. Ashore, some time has been spent checking our bouts for youngsters. Three “Oppies” that need some TLC as does the “Cadet”, I am happy to say the work has now started.

The “Cadet” is a Class designed for two young people up to the age of 17, there are many fleets in Spain. The two “Toppers” are ready to sail, they are a wet boat but that´s part of the fun... I´ll be checking on our wetsuits. If you want to know more about the Dinghy Classes buy a Dinghy directory, available in the UK, price 7 to 8 pounds or come and talk to us.

Our 18 ft Micro Cruiser wich is having a major re-fit thanks to the efforts of Karen and Stan will be another addition to our fleet. I´m looking forward to it, however the possible launching date concerns me a wi bit, the 1st of April !

If you are the “GP 14” dinghy sailor or remember the “GP 14”designed by Jack Holt in 1950, you should be celebrating the 60th Championships this year to held in the UK. However, the World Championships are taking place now, February 20th to 28th , at Negumbo, Sri Lanka (Celon). Sorry if you have missed it, I let you know the results

Another event which is taking place now is “Act 1” of the “Extreme Sailing Series”, February 22nd to 24th in Muscat. I fancy a trip there to meet with our friends racing the “Extreme 40 Catamarans”.

There are now 11 International Teams on the Circuit and 9 Venues. They are:

Muscat, Oman 22nd to 24th of February; Qingdao, China 15th to 17th of April; Istanbul, Turkey 27th to 29 of May; Boston, USA 30th, June to 4th of July; Cowes, UK 6th to 12th of August; Trapani, Italy 16th to 18th of September; Nice, France 30 Sep. to 2nd of October; Almería, Spain 12th to 16th of October, finally, Singapore 9 to 11th of December. I hope that you can visit one of the Venues; we will certainly be at Almería.

Don´t forget, we will also be at Garrucha every weekend, 11 am onwards; hope we can meet for a chat.

Take care.
