Commissioning Cup : 24th March 2019

Published 12:19 on 22 Mar 2019

We start our 2019 sailing season with the Commissioning Cup race on Sunday 24 March. This cup was presented by former Commodore, Ian Vallender, to encourage boats and people out on the water early in the season. In 2018, we had 15 entries, six of which were Squibs. Once again, this is probably going to be an average lap course with all classes starting together. But so that we can plan the best course for everyone, the Sailing Committee would like to know who is planning to take part.

We're delighted that Martin Bedford has offered to be RO for this race and very happy that we have a full race team signed up on DutyMan (though we would still like someone to come forward to act as beachmaster!)

We hope that the weather will be favourable though, at the time of writing, there's a F8 WNW blowing so who knows what next weekend will bring – hopefully some lovely spring weather!

Could you please drop an email to and let Helen know if you're planning to take part – especially any cruisers, cadets and Squibs.

The 2019 Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions, entry form and chart are available to download at

Many thanks
