Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 30th March 2011

Sorry you missed out on our Saturday sailing. David and Bruce were taking out the Big “Catalac Catamaran”, I was invited along with John the “Magregor”. With ideal winds of Force 3 plus it hummed along at a steady 5.5 knots. Down passed Villaricos, around the Fish Farm, and back to Garrucha with an Easterly wind always in our favor; sandwiches along with cake and coffee were served in the massive cockpit, what more could you ask?!

Sunday, was an other good day, the “Catalac” was out again, along with many other Dinghy sailors, which included Nick and his “Phantom” a powerful singlehander suitable for the heavier crew. The previous weekend was ideal weather and the “Pastinaca” was on the water with Rodolfo giving tuition to Paco our Spanish members.

The “Barcelona World Race”: On the last day of the Old Year, 14 yachts started a Race around the World, 25.000 nautical miles non stop, they were 60 ft. yachts, with a crew of two. When you read this, we will know the Winner, I expect it to be “Virbac-Paprec 3”, a French yacht, who will arrive to cross to Finishing Line at Barcelona, on Sunday evening, the 3rd of April, if the weather is kind to them.

Now, a Big cheer for 2nd place, the yacht “Mapfre” with a Spanish crew of Senior´s Martines and Fernandez expected about 30 hours later. 3rd place is wide open, there are 3 yacths with only about 200 nautical miles separating them, if you want to see them and the remainder of the fleet crossing the finishing line, after an epic journey, nip up to Barcelona now! What a pity the train isn´t running. There should be a big bouquet of Roses for the girls, Dee Caffari and Anna Corbella a British- Spanish Duo, who may finish in 6th place.

When can we look forward to a “Festival of Sail”, I hope when we launch “Sheba”,our 18 ft. sailing cruiser, which Stan is refitting, she looks real Beauty, watch this space, it could be this month, you will need to bring your own Champagne.

I hope to see you befor that at our Club House “Rincón de Puerto”, Gruucha Marina, Saturday and Sunday 11 am onwards

Take care.
