Racing on Sunday 12 May and Information Needed Please

10 May 2019

Racing Sunday 12 May

We have a Race Officer and safety boat driver but we still need a person to act as crew. No previous experience needed. If you can help it will be very much appreciated.

Information Needed Please

One of the things we need to do in setting up the Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club (TVSC) is to ask potential members to give us an indication of their support. This is actually quite important in achieving our aims.

If you consider yourself to be a potential future member of TVSC, could you please send details as noted below to: altonsailing@gmail.com

  • Name of sailor / member (also gender if not obvious) (from name)
  • Age of sailor
  • Employment / educational status
  • Physical address
  • Parent or guardians address if under 16
  • Email address
  • Emergency contact details
  • Telephone contact detail(s)
Thank you in advance for your support.

Racing Sunday 4 May 2019

04 May 2019

We are planning to race on Sunday but need some volunteers to start and finish races and a couple of willing people with RYA PB2 to run rescue.

If you can help, please contact Gavin via the Alton Water Sailing Facebook page at .https://www.facebook.com/groups/116181001895851/



Report on Sunday 21st and Racing on Sunday 28th April

23 Apr 2019

This might be a little hard on the heels of Easter, but if we are to race this coming weekend we really need 2 volunteers to undertake rescue boat duty on Sunday.

We need a helmsman with PB2 who is over 18 with appropriate skills and a crew to assist.

We need to put a roster together as the club crystallises but at the moment we are very heavily dependent on appropriate people stepping forward if we are not to over commit the regular supporters.

If you feel you can help in any way, it would be very much appreciated by all.


Report on Sunday 21st Racing:

The TVSC faithful gathered on Easter Sunday for 4 races and were rewarded not only with Easter Eggs, but with some excellent racing as well. The results were all but irrelevant but the conditions made for some intriguing tactical races with shifts to make your toes curl. The beauty was that there was always a decision to make. Great fun all round. The sunshine made the atmosphere even better. With a healthy contingent of both young and old, it was the older sailors who triumphed. John Glasspool and Gavin Johnson ended the day with 2 firsts and 2 seconds apiece with John taking the day by winning the final race. In third was Phoebe Wilcocks who sailed superbly and was never far behind the leaders, pushing all the way.

I can only assume that everyone went home thoroughly happy and tired.

A huge thank you to Nick for running the races and to Team Cresswell for running rescue.



Today's Report and Next Week's Plan

14 Apr 2019

14th April Race Training

We had a rather chilly race training session today with some great tips and advice from John Glasspool, Rob Campbell-Grey and Ben Powell. We had a strong turnout of junior Laser sailors who just got quicker all day. Jasmine in her Pico really got the boat going as did Trevor in the Feva. Noah in the Topper really kept in contention with the faster boats.

At the end of the session we had 2 short scratch races, both won by Rob Ford in his RS 300 with Rob CG and Ben pressing him. What was really impressive in both races was the way everyone was on the line at the start and how close such a mixed fleet was at the windward mark.

With some very variable conditions, the sight of the day had to be Oli and Alex in the RS400 on a 3 sail reach at speed or was it Ben in his Aero at speed in a personal humongous gust. A very big thank you to everyone for taking part

21st April Easter Sunday (We're all in the chocolates)

Next week on Sunday (that's Easter Sunday) we are intending to do some course racing; probably 3 or 4 races dependent on the weather. Chocolate eggs for prizes, however we do need 3 volunteers; 1 for race officer and 2 for rescue boat including 1 with PB2 qualification. Briefing as usual 1030 with the first start not before 1100.

13 Apr 2019

Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club
The changes to the running of the centre have come into effect and Anglian Water are operating the centre and as you’ll have noticed your payments are now for water access and storage rather than membership and storage . We are, with Anglian Water’s encouragement, developing the extant Tattingstone Valley Sailing Club to cover the gaps in what will / is likely at this stage to be offered in the future. This is supported by the AWSC charity as a furtherance of their aims to develop sailing at Alton Water.

The aim of the sailing club will be to continue and develop sailing especially competitive sailing at Alton. 
You’ll shortly be seeing information on the activities of the new sailing club and requests from the Steering Group who are guiding the club’s formation.

Those wishing to support and participate in what the club can offer should provide contact details to:

altonsailing@gmail.com

In doing so please provide the following details:
Name of sailor / member (also gender if not obvious) (from name) 
Age of sailor
Employment / educational state
Physical address
Parent or guardians address if under 16
Email address
Emergency contact details
Telephone contact detail(s)
Agreement that we may hold your details securely and communicate with you.


Outwardly you will see quite a significant amount of activity around the site. Anglian Water are currently renovating the car parks and sprucing up the café.
Please give the AW staff your support as they navigate through this period of change.

 

Sunday 14th April

This weekend the sailors are having a race and train day starting at 1030 with a briefing followed by short race and race training exercises. It is for everyone and a chance to blow away the cobwebs and for those new to racing a chance to work on developing their speed in a friendly unpressured situation.

 

Next weekend Easter Sunday 21st April

We are intending to run up to five fun races on Sunday starting with a briefing at 1030. This will give a chance to demonstrate what you picked up the week before. Anyone able to offer support should contact Gavin. You can use this email address altonsailing@gmail.com

 

And finally for now

Keep your eyes open here and on face book We will shortly be publishing our programme for the rest of the season and further information on TVSC.
