Dear All,

Wishing you a Happy New Year, and a prosperous and healthy 2018.

The LSC Solo Class will be holding its AGM on 11th February 2018. Start time 1100 hrs in the LSC Upper Saloon.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss any matters relevant in the year ahead.

So, if you can give some thought to topics that you would like raised, these will be included in the Agenda. Please email me with your considerations by 31st January 2018.

One point for consideration is the election of a new LSC Solo Class Captain. After three years I will be stepping down in order for somebody else to take over with fresh ideas.

Happy Sailing

Robin

The LSC Christmas Panto was a fantastic evening and a huge success. Watched by a full house in our downstairs saloon, thank you all for coming and we really hope you enjoyed yourselves. It’s quite remarkable what you can achieve in such a small theatre! A huge thanks to our writer & director Marilyn Gayner for all the stress we caused her during rehearsals, and for the amazing script and staging. A massive well done to all the actors, and in particular John Gayner (Muddles) for all his hard work, as well as, Sally (Snow White), Graham (Mum), Ainslie (Queen Sadista), ), Dick (Mirror Man), Lucy (Prince Benedict) and Victor on keyboards. Not forgetting Isla and Nicky, the Commodore, the Gorilla and, of course, our 7 dodgy dwarves. Special thanks to our stage builders and assistants for all their hard work – Alan, Maggie and Peter, and everyone else that helped out (apologies if I’ve missed anyone off). Well done to all, have a great Christmas and New Year and hope to see you at our fantastic club in the near future.

– Paul Knight.

On Sunday 17th December the Leigh on Sea Sailing Club held their season ending Brass Monkey Race. Twenty eight boats from a number of sailing clubs entered for the race however, the competitors were initially confronted with thick fog, the race officer having to postpone the start to wait for the visibility to improve.

Once it was deemed clear enough the course was laid and in very light airs the start sequence was initiated. Quite a few of the competitors were too eager to get away and crossed the line before the starting gun meaning there had to be a general recall.

At the second time of asking the race was successfully started and in the light airs tactics played a big part in the outcome of the race. Those sailors who stayed inshore definitely came out best on the long first beat. As the breeze eventually picked up the temperature started to drop and the Brass Monkey race lived up to its' name. After two rounds of the course for the medium and slow boats, three for the faster ones and nearly two hours on the water most thoughts had turned to a hot shower and something to warm the insides.

Race result:

  • 1st Will Taylor EYC
  • 2nd Mike Iszatt King George SC
  • 3rd John Charles LSC
  • 4th Nick Veitch EYC
  • 5th Rob Tothill LSC
  • 6th Michael Marriot EYC

If, living by the sea as you do, you think you would like to know a bit more about sailing please feel free to come and have a chat with the members of the Leigh Sailing Club (situated in the old station building in the heart of the Old Town). The club is generally open on Friday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes.
