JHYC NEWSLETTER #7 OF 2015

Jolly Harbour Yacht Club Newsletter # 7 of 2015 14/10/2015

A warm welcome to you all at the start of the new winter season, I trust
you all enjoyed your breaks from Antigua and looking forward to returning.
For those of you who are permanent residents on the island I hope it’s also
been relaxing.

Unfortunately for some it has not been so good. Our dear Past Commodore
Budgie as not been well and will not be joining us until February. We all
wish him a very speedy recovery and our thoughts are with him. To relieve
Budgie of the pressure of writing the newsletter, for the time being I will try
to fill his shoes. Wish me well.

Saturday Sailing. During this summer we didn’t see many boats out on the
water, occasionally there were none. It appears more people left the island
than in previous years. With a new season regular sailing has started again.
The usual 2 starts at 14:05 for Division 1 and 14:10 for Division 2 starting
from the club line. Entry will be EC$20 per yacht, Rum Rations to the
winners! Results will be calculated on CSA and on Club handicap for those
without a CSA Rating.

The intention of Saturday Sailing has always been to encourage boat owners
to improve their sailing skills. Aggressive sailing is discouraged. We want to
see cruisers, live-aboards, and fun boats on the courses we set. Downwind
starts in the harbour reduce the risk of contacts, the marvellous sailing
waters of Five Islands Bay give every opportunity for exciting sailing with
enough marks to be rounded to keep a whole crew, or a husband and wife
team, busy for a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon as well as the
socializing in the West Point Marina Bar (Home of the Jolly Harbour Yacht
Club).
