Manx Sailing & Cruising Club are hosting the Watling Streetworks Dinghy Regatta on Saturday 18 June, start time 13.00 and Sunday 19 June, start time 13.30. Sailing instructions for the event can be found at this link – MS&CC Regatta 2022 – Sailing Instructions

I’m sure the competitors will be pleased to hear that there will be pasty and beans provided after sailing on Saturday. The sailing on Sunday will be followed by a Prizegiving and Regatta Tea for all competitors and volunteers at around 4pm.

First Regatta on the sea for 2022, last year this event was delayed because of ‘Lockdown 3.0’ so it was held on its traditional Easter Saturday, the day started out promising enough with a steady 10 – 12 knot SE breeze but as is the way of the weather this changed just before the start, with the wind now lighter and from the south, the course was reset the fleet got underway then the test began, the wind lightened and changed direction many times but Ralph Kee came through to take to win with Teddy Dunn second and Andrew Dean third.Race two over a shorter slightly altered course also looked promising until the start hooter becoming a repeat of race one with very trying conditions Ralph Kee once again made the most of it win his second win, Teddy in second and James Bishop third.Race three was doubtful but the wind filled with a slight chill in the air so it was started in the hope if would hold which it sort of did, sadly for Ralph his two point lead over Teddy going in to this race evaporated when he posted a fourth with Teddy taking the win, Angus Jolly took second spot and Jerry Colman Third, this meant Teddy Dunn emerged as the series winner with Ralph second and Angus Jolly third. https://www.halsail.com/Result/Public/61398Big thank you to patrol/course laying crews and the ladies for the Regatta Tea.The prize giving also included Trophies for the Injebreck Winter Series hence the reason Teddy has three in front of him taking two from the winter, Peter Cope, Simon Pressly and Ralph won one apiece.

After a mixed bag of weather over the winter on Injebreck it will be nice to return to the sea and the start of the MS&CC Summer sailing programme.  We hope to see as many competitors as possible in Ramsey Bay on Saturday 16 April to open our season with the IOM Copiers Easter Regatta.

This is a One Day Event with three races to be held “back to back”, with racing starting at 10:30 and expected to be fully completed at 14:00 – IOM Copiers Easter Regatta 2022-Sailing Instructions.

There will be a Prize Presentation directly afterwards which will be followed by a complimentary Regatta Tea for all competitors, race officials, family, friends and social members.

As this event is part of the ‘Traveller Series’ it is hoped that this Regatta will be fully supported. Competitors of all ages and capabilities are welcome! Please contact Ralph Kee, Dinghy Captain on 490704 or helen.j.kee@gmail.com for further details or check out our Facebook page.

March is a cruel month, it gives hints of summer but can still take you back to winter!  On Sunday at West Baldwin reservoir it gave us a lovely sunny, spring morning for the penultimate round of the Watling Streetworks Winter Series.

What it took was any sense of direction from the brisk easterly wind which swirled across the Baldwin Valley gusting in every direction and strength including many and frequent calms. Full report is at this link – Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 20 March 2022

Light Winds but sunshine!

A better forecast than the whole of February brought out an enlarged fleet of eleven dinghies for the last month of the dinghy racing at West Baldwin reservoir on Sunday morning.  The first racing of the meteorological spring for the Watling Streetworks March Series was sailed in bright sunshine with a light breeze, though being from the east crossed the valley creating the usual gusts, shifts and calms.

The race officer, mercifully, set a smaller than usual course, using what appeared to be the windier end of the reservoir. Click this link for the full report – Watling Streetworks Winter Series – 6 March 2022
