RBSC BBQ This Saturday 19th May

As a round off to our Try Sailing sessions the club will be lighting a barbecue at around 3:30 or 4:00pm on Saturday afternoon.

Please bring your own food to cook on the barbecue together with your favourite tipple and share what looks to be a lovely sunny afternoon with the new members who have joined the club over recent weeks. If you fancy a sail beforehand we will have rescue cover all day

For our new members this is will be a time to reflect on the last few weeks and have an informal chat with knowledgable sailors as to what your next steps might be,

Kind Regards
Pete and Rachel

Sailing Cancelled Sun 4th March

Further to the previous weather update.

See Details Here……….

It has been decided to cancel Sailing for this Sunday 4th March.

The decision has not been taken lightly but with poor road conditions,  access to the club suspect a partially frozen broad, and the main safety boat engine  ‘snowed in’ at the service shop, it is the only sensible option.

See you all on the 11th.

 

Feb 25th Report

                                                  SUNDAY  25TH Feb  2018 Report

The weather forecast appeared  to have put sailors off with reduced numbers at Rollesby. The ten boats that launched, however, enjoyed two races on  a breezy and sunny morning. The easterly direction of the wind coming over the trees along the Broad lead to quickly changing conditions, from planning gusts to quiet periods with big wind shifts and adjusting to these was the key to the races.

In the four boat multi sail fleet Dave Houghton and John Symonds in their Wayfarer lead both races    comfortably, for two wins, followed by the fellow Wayfarers of Val and Chris Hanson and Bob Sparrow with Steve.

In the six single sail fleet the  first race, was lead round by Mike McNamara in his Harrier but the fickle wind allowed the fleet  to bunch up at the bottom mark on the last lap. This gave the handicap win to John Saddington in his solo, with second place to Keith Sykes in a Laser and third to the solo of Matt Boreham.  In the second race mixed fortunes on the start line allowed the two solos’  of Saddington and Boreham to lead the way round on the first lap but the Harrier and Laser pulled through and by lap five had established a good lead to give McNamara the win with Sykes second and Boreham third.

Frostbite Regatta Report

As a forerunner to its frostbite series, Rollesby Broad Sailing Club held their frostbite regatta with a fresh wind from the north. OOD Robert Sparrow set a simple course with a long run and beat over the length of the broad.
In the first race the small Multi Sail four boat fleet was lead by Chris Sallis in his D1 but Dave Houghton and John Symonds, in their Wayfarer won comfortably on handicap.
When the larger single sail fleet started the strength of the wind was increasing and on the first lap spectators were treated to the sight of 14 single handers planning on a run down the broad. Alas this was not to last as a vicious gust caused multiple capsizes. With nine boats over, some with masts in the mud, the rescue boat crew of Paul Warnes and Nick Whittle had their work cut out. In spite of doing turns at the first mark Roger Wilson prevailed and won the race in his solo followed by another solo helmed by Matt Boreham.
There was a much reduced turn out for the second race. In the Multi Sail fleet John Saddington and Dennis Manning crossed the line first in the Albacore but Houghton and Symonds in the wayfarer were not far behind to take first in the race and the regatta trophy. In the single sail fleet six boats went out and Dan Harvey won the race in the club Pico, followed by Matt Boreham and Roger Wilson. With Wilson and Boreham both on four points count back was required to give Wilson the single sail trophy.
