Has anyone worked out why you keep seeing these flags at the top of the page? Could it spell something? Hmmm

All that aside, the boats that did come out all had a ripper sail. The wind was quite brisk to start with, around twelve knots, but eased back to around eight for most of the day. There were a few holes here and there, but nothing too bad, and mixed in with a few really good wind shifts, there were some big gains too be made if you knew where to look, (I didn't know where to look obviously).
It was good to see Glenn Lazzar out on an RS Feva with Xavier Graham, teaching him a few pointers (they did know where to look)! A big shout out also to Duncan and Hamish McColl, who travel longer to get here each week than they do sailing. Hamish will miss most of the season as he trains with the Fire service over summer. Great stuff Ham! Of the eleven boats we did have sailing, there were four 420s, three Tasar's, a Tera, a Windrush and a solitary Sabre. Where have all the Sabre's gone? They can't all have bad backs, bung shoulders or drinkers elbow. Come on you lot, fire up, the waters not that cold!
T aboard Sutherland. Without you guys each week, there would be no sailing.
Cheers, Pete Chippy

Wishing a Happy Birthday to our Club Person Of The Year for 2021-2022 Greg Lowe. It's his last year in the 40's........and because I write the newsletter and I am his wife, I am letting you all know that Greg is celebrating his date of birth, today 19th October. I'm sure you may see Greg at the club over the next few nights waiting for someone to hug him, or shake his hand, and maybe......buy him a beer!! (insert wink!!). If you'd like to give a shout out to any up and coming birthday's, please don't be shy, drop me an email. Oh and as I write this, I've had no word yet on the pending arrival of the newest member to the Martin/Nugent clan, come on Tash!
