First start around 11.20 am, second and third races to be sailed back to back after a lunch break. Race Officers: Dave Berger & Pip Warner

Hornsea Sailing Club Streaker Open meeting 18th April 2015

The elements were kind-ish for this event which saw 24 entries. Hornsea Mere sparkled in the sun with a cool easterly, varying from F2-3 up to 4 at times greeting the fleet. Some new boats were in evidence, with one, Peter Lawson's SailBlader so new it had no sail numbers nor measurement cert at this stage (though lots of "Barton" decals!). Sprayed out in orange, the casual observer could have been forgiven for thinking it was an all-g/frp boat, but he assured me it was wood through and through. His treatment of the "tapered gunwales" aroused mutterings amongst the cognoscenti!


It was great to see three female sailors including our own Sammi Warner. A shortish course was set for the first race which got under way around cleanly on the first attempt, thanks to a reasonably stable wind direction. This was to be the pattern for the following two starts as well, which as OoD was very gratifying! Six boats quickly established early dominance over the fleet, though there was some swapping of places during the four rounds. Phillip David led at the first round, though slipping to second and then third by the end as Dan Phillips stamped his authority on this race.


After a pleasant lunch break, with the cafe doing brisk business, the second race produced some drama. A longer course with more buoys produced confusion during the second round as the leading six boats headed for the shallows marker off Swan Island, rather than #7. Matt Whitfield (I think it was) stuck to his own conviction and headed off in the right direction, rounding #7 almost before the (previously-leading) boats realised their mistakes. Matt's reward was a second in this race. John Aldhous pulled through by the end of the race, though Dan Phillips almost rectified his earlier mistake by catching back up to 3rd by the end of this race.


Race 3 used the same course, and was sailed back-to-back as the wind remained kind to us by not swinging round. This race was characterised by a tad more wind, and some very close mark rounding and good bunching within the fleet. Ian Bradley established a lead early on. Dave Butler started right at committee boat end, had to put in a couple of tacks to avoid others, and then worked his way up the right hand side of the beat to be second round the first mark. Ian Bradley was able, in clear air to stretch out his lead to around 100 metres by the finish. This result, combined with second in the first race allowed him to discard a sixth to win the event.


There were some appreciative comments about "our patch" of water, especially from those more used to sailing on smaller, more wind-shadowed venues.


We are working on upgrading our facilities, but it will be a couple of years away yet before we see much progress. Meanwhile we hope you'll return next year, and if you fancy a visit later in this season, our "Regatta" in mid September is available to all-comers and will comprise a Saturday "Sprintz" event on 12th Sept. (inaugurated for the Blazes last year) will have 9 short races in three flights of three, sailed as class events. A minimum of three boats of a class will constitute a fleet. This will be followed by a Sunday handicap event on 13th Sept. of three longer races for the "Malcolm Sharpe Memorial Trophy" which has been won by both Dave Butler and Dave Smith in Streaker's in previous years. Entries will be taken for either or both days, with details available nearer the time.
