Golden Fillet Supper and Race Update

Saturday 1st October 2011 Clacton Sailing Club and Northampton Sailing Club enjoyed a day of sailing and supper together.

Golden Fillet Supper

As well as our own members our numbers were increased by Northampton Sailing Club, who were visiting us for the weekend. The meal was a “fish & chip” supper supplied by “The Golden Fillet” fish and chip shop. Everyone thought it was one of the best they had eaten. This evening was the conclusion of a cruise to Martello beach and back.

Golden Fillet Race

The race got off to a slow start with the wind around one knot. The race was good in one respect, the good sailors i.e. those who could make the most of the wind, came in first. The first place went to a visitor from Northampton sailing a Topper, followed by two of our Darts after applying the PY, then came the rest of the fleet. We had four retire due to heat exhaustion

Weather – wind force one, flat sea and sunny very crowded start. Due to the slow progress the dinghies were reduced to one lap with cats completing two laps.
