Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 22nd June 2011

Sunday the 19th of June, we had planed our a “Flotilla Sail” along Mojacar Coast. The force 3 was ideal for the Cruisers; but the lumpy sea made it some what uncomfortable for the Dinghies.

Nevertheless, there where 14 boats on the water. For “Sheba” our 18 ft Micro Cruiser, it was her maiden voyage after the refit, she had been launched the previous Sunday with a champagne celebration, wishing her and all who sail in her Good fortune and safe sailing. Kevin Mosely, who had presented the boat to us as a Gift many years ago, was with us on the 19th and took the helm as she sailed out of Garrucha for the first time. Others Cruisers out that day were the “Magregor 26” with Sue and her crew; Rosie and Steve on the Flagship “Infinity” a Beneteau 34 enjoyed the Conditions. Our other Cruisers, Rodolfo´s 10 m and Ian´s 8 m didn´t make it this time.

“Dos Amigos” the “Drascombe” is out of the water for a refit, I ´ll be looking for volunteers! All the Dinghies plus Lindon´s “Cat”, returned safely, we had our R.I.B´s on the water to monitor them. Another first for us was a picnic on the playa, on the North side of the harbour wall, with a dip in the sea to cool off and coffee available from the local beach bar. Every one had enjoyed the Day, I´m sure, we will do it again.

I often remind you: the UK. is the most successful contry in the Sport of “Dinghy Sailing”.At the recent Skandia Sail for Gold World Cup Regatta sailed at Weymouth and Poole, the Olympic Venue, the UK. won 9 Medals: 3 Golds, 4 Silvers and 2 Bronze. Once again Ben Ainslie won Gold in the Finn class with a margin of 16 points, sealing his place in the Olympic Team for 2012.

The “Extreme 40 Catamaran Series”- remember they will be in Almería the 12th to 16th of October- the penultimate event in the Series, the final will be in Singapore. Act 3 has just been completed in Istanbul where the Winners were the Swedish team, 2nd New Zealand who we will be cheering in Almeria, 3rd was the French team. At the end of the series, there will have been 47 Racing Days, in 9 Venues, 282 races, with each race lasting about 20 minutes. The Extreme 40 now heads for Boston USA.

If you haven´t seen any of these action packed races make a note in your diary now, and enjoy the hospitality of Almería in October. In the meantime come and accept our hospitality in Garrucha, at “Rincón del Puerto”, 11 am each weekend

Take care.
