Report on RYA Welsh Team Racing.

Llangorse a brilliant 3rd Overall

The Welsh RYA Team Racing event 4th June at Cardiff Bay Yacht Club.

 

Arriving nice and early as asked for 9am we saw little activity till the wind and organisers all got it together.  The conditions were light and fluky with a short S shaped course, windward leg, reach, run, reach beat to finish and the races lasted eight minutes or thereabouts each.  A lot of races were planned but the fickle wind shortened the programme eventually.  We ended up with all teams racing each other once only.   Close quarter steering and boat handling were tested as well as roll tacking and gybing to keep these University Fireflies moving.  Llangorese SC Team came 3rd overall out of eight teams, and were the 1st Welsh SC Team, having won 4 out of our seven round robin races against the other 7 teams.  We lost all our 3 races against the 3 well practiced teams from Exeter University.  This largely happened in pre start manoeuvres and sometimes we added to our own woes here, but it was all in good heart and intentions! Our team was Rob Dangerfield, Claire Ellis, Jonny and Nicky Heissig and Guy Davison and Guy Farmer our youth representative helm who kindly agreed to crew Guy.  We came home with 3 bottles of wine to celebrate with and to plan our rematch next year.  Thank you LSC for your support and the Welsh RYA for their idea to hold this event and yes we’d like to come again next time!

 Welcome to Llangorse Sailing Club...
Llangorse Sailing Club, founded in 1953, is in easy striking distance of Cardiff, Abergavenny, Bristol and Hereford and is one of the most beautiful places to sail in Britain today. The Club encourages sailing as a sport for all age groups and members can sail at any time other than during January. The membership ranges from those who find enjoyment just sailing around the lake through to racing enthusiasts. By special arrangement, schools and other similar organisations can apply for membership.

The attractive new Clubhouse and changing rooms are accessible throughout the racing season, which runs from March to November. Club racing takes place throughout the sailing season, mainly on Sundays and we have safety cover on the lake on Wednesday evenings from May to September. We have a full programme for our thriving Junior commumity of sailors which includes training, coaching and support, and racing.  As the RYA Training Centre for the area we also have a full club Training programme and encourage our members in learning to sail and improving their skills.  Courses range from a first introduction to sailing, right through to practice racing sessions. Refreshments and confectionery are on offer in the galley via an honesty box system.

Explore the links on the left of this page to find out more and click on our 'Join Us' page for membership forms and details.  Our fees are kept as low as possible as we rely on our membership to volunteer in running all Club activities.
