Hi All

This Sunday the final race in the IOM 2nd series will take place with Terry as RO. Vinnie has sold his R6M and has volunteered to be RO for the rest of the R6M events. Sun 15th Sept we are hosting the Norfolk Trophy for IOM. This is also the EDCS Round 5 so we should have some visitors to join us on the day. Any volunteers to assist with the running of this all day event would be gratefully appreciated.Thurs 19th Sept  /  Club AGM / Filby Village Hall/ 1930 - details and agenda to be confirmed.


Sun 20th Oct we are hosting the Broadland Trophy for RM. This is also the Eastern District RM Championship and Games so we should have some visitors to join us on the day. Any volunteers to assist with the running of this all day event would be gratefully appreciated.

Xmas Dinner / Presentation Evening  / Filby Bridge Restaurant / Fri 6th Dec - more details to follow.

A discussion took place over coffee this morning concerning Wednesday sailing.
It is at present very hit and miss. Last week we had a great mornings racing but this week only one boat took to the water.
To try and encourage participation, for the rest of this years season,  it is proposed to trial an IOM Wednesday Series commencing Wed 28th Aug / 4th Dec - a series of 15 weekly regattas.
Race days will be as normal  - 1000 start  / coffee / last race not to start after 1230.
No RO  / Self Policing - it currently works well with RM & 6RM
Points / discards as on Sundays so a weekly winner will be decided on the day.
The series winner will be decided using competitors points totals from 2/3rds of the races sailed during the whole series.
eg. 15 days sailing / 10 races a day / 150 races in total / 100 race results to count / your worst 50 results are discards.

This gives members 4 options 
- Knowing that Sailing will take place on a Wednesday and can join us for a coffee.
- Sometimes sailing and hoping to be that weeks Champion.
- Not being able to sail all morning  / every morning  but still sailing enough races to win the series.
- Sailing every week to get the best chance of winning the series.

Weather forecast and wind look good for Sunday ( I think that I mistakenly said that about last weekend ). 

I hope to see you then. NEIL

RM Second Series Day (1)

The test sail last Wednesday turned out to be not totally accurate. Light Southerly, very changeable, airs meant there was very little boat boat heeling. That combined with a low water level meant we encountered some patches of weed with the Marbleheads . Despite this we had a very enjoyable mornings racing. Alan joined us for further trials with his recently constructed Marblehead and many thanks must go to Beryl who volunteered to record the finishes. Bernie and John C did come along with their boats but unfortunately technical difficulties prevented them from racing. Click here for results ......Well done Vinnie!

This Wednesday the weather forecast looks good with sunshine and a moderate SW wind, so offers the opportunity to practice for the resumption of the IOM series next Sunday, 11th August

I hope to see you there.

Summer Weed .....Mel and Neil testing for weed.

Well done John!

Another good mornings racing at Filby. The self policing worked well until coffee then Mark arrived and generously volunteered for the rest of the morning.

During Coffee we discussed the races postponed  / abandoned earlier this year   -  RM   ( 21st April )   & R6M ( 13th Jan)

It was proposed ( if the weed does not make it impossible)  to reschedule the postponed RM race on the 16th June and the abandoned R6M the week after on the 23rd June. As today RO duties could be self policing.

Most of those who would be racing in these rearranged events were there today and agreed.

It was also thought not to rearrange the current schedule unless the weed prevents us restarting on the 14th July.

Informal one off events could take place on the Weedy Sundays if sailing is possible.

13th January 2019

R6M First Series Day (1)

Not the greatest day with six boats turning up and few not sustaining minor damage of some sort on a very windy day. Elizabeth allowed me to sail her Bellair for which I am very grateful but I only managed to complete one race ( along with Terry) due to the conditions. John and Bernie finished two races and then decided to call it a day. The risk to the boats was too great. Click here for results

Picture is of Bellair (sail no. 0) leading the fleet of course sailed by Elizabeth.
