Bart's Bash  20 September 2015

   

Another great day on the water in some challenging conditions, but all for a good cause.
Wind was South Westerly with gusts upto 27knts. Course sailed was the usual start line, Whitey Rock port, a fast run upto the
South Workington Buoy. First boat to the buoy was Poppy in a 39 minuets with the bulk of the fleet close behind. Then hard
on the wind with reefed sails back to the finish line. Thank you to all that took part and special mention to Steve Ben for
organising our event.

Galemire Race 19 September 2015

 

There was a terrific turn out of thirteen boats, which I believe equals our maximum fleet of a previous years Friendship Race.
The day was bright and sunny with a light S.W. wind of under 10 Knots, giving us a flat calm sea.
COURSE: The usual start line with an almost dead run down to Whitey Rock which was passed to port, then a beam reach up to
South Workington, passed to Port. Last leg was a beat back down to the finish line against a North going tide.

Friendship Race 25 July 2015
 

 
 

A longer course over LW this time as the weather was no good for the planned weekend across the Solway.  Four boats and a pod of dolphins started the race but the latter soon lost interest and retired. A gentle NW wind and sloppy sea made for a slow start past St Bees with little distance between boats but as the breeze picked up Kitty pulled ahead to round the Sellafield cardinal buoy first. In increasing winds gusting up to F6 and backing to westerly it was a much faster race up to the south Workington cardinal with Kitty well ahead and the other boats all rounding the mark  together. Then a reach back to the finish. A good day's sailing, 30miles in the sun.

Course was usual start North to South, Sellafield West Cardinal to starboard then South Workington to port. Finish line from north to South. Wind. From NNW 2 to finish in W 5-6. Sea from calm to rough.

Mid Summer Race 4 July 2015

The course was South Workington and back, wind South East 30 knots. It felt deceptively  calm going up to the buoy with the wind astern but we kept our reefs in and were glad of them later beating into wind and tide. At least it was sunny. We were pleased about crossing the line first but Mimic was too close behind to have beaten him. It was a shame the other 2 retired having done almost all the course,  I expect they couldn't  face any more tacking in those conditions.

Presidents Cup 20 June 2015

Eight boats started in misty drizzle and light winds and half the fleet soon had spinnakers flying. The sun eventually appeared and  Shellseeker was first round the S Workington buoy followed by Ancylus.  The following boats all took 2 or 3 attempts to round the buoy because of the light winds and  strong tides. However it proved no advantage to be ahead as the light winds and contrary tide necessitated many tacks for the front of the fleet while those further back were able to take a more direct line to Whitey rock and the finish line as the breeze increased and the tide lessened.

Spring Cup 18 April 20  

Some great weather for the first proper race of the season, but with a mixed bag of forecasts depending on which prediction you looked at. The normally reliable Met Office reporting a strong wind warning with a N or NE force 6 at times. Out on the water we had bright sunshine and very little wind from the south. Progress up to the first mark was slow, more tide assisted than sailing.

The fleet rounded the buoy off "Whitey Rock" the lighter boats catching a breeze enabling them to make progress up to the South Workington Buoy. The wind picked up from the NE closer the SWB allowing leading boats to increase their lead. Kon Tiki suffered rigging failure, forcing them to retire, and make their way home under engine.

The wind dropped off again as boats approached the finish line, making slow progress against tide. Several yachts retired as they were unable to beat the ebbing tide. Crackerjack making an early tactical decision to stay well up tide of the finish line was the only boat to complete the race.

Prologue Race 6 April 2015

 


As the light westerly wind was not enough to clear a lingering sea mist, a simple course from just south of Whitehaven Harbour to the South Workington Cardinal Buoy rounded to port then return to the start-finish line was chosen.  Traditionally, this is a low turn-out race as many of the yachts are still undergoing winter maintenance so only five yachts entered.
