The MSC Enterprise team,Will Eltringham, Emma Coleman, Maryam Emin, Oliver Maclean and Alexander Kalogriantis report on the highs and lows of their participation in the Juniors Southport 12 hour race. This report has been written by the youngsters themselves with only minimal help from the grown ups. Well done!
New members Anna and Tim Matthews, Martin Harris and Stephanie Thouless successfully completed their RYA Better Sailing course today.
In light and shifty winds they demonstrated their competencies on all points of sailing in testing conditions that included 180 deg wind shifts and short periods of absilutely no wind.
They took part in the first race on Saturday afternoon, and were by no means the slowest boats on the water.
They are now ready to take out the Club's boats on their own, and will make excellent crew for anyone with a space at the front of their boat.
The 48 boats that participated in the weekend of radio controlled model boat racing certainly required big feet by the helms as the big fleet walked up and down the side of the reservoir controlling their exciting, fast and manoeuvrable craft.
A beautiful sunny weekend, the yachters thrashed it out in a series of multiple heat races.
Great to have them at MSC!!
