Quiz Nights Blast Off

A nail-biting finish to the first of the new quiz night series on Friday (7th November). Excellent evening, some very in-ter-esting questions and the start of a gourmet challenge on the 'bring your own nibbles' theme. Plenty of scope for more teams:- you have a month to polish the brain cells before the next round on 12th December. Losing team must set and present the next set of questions - well done, Andrew Folkard's team. We look forward to your challenge.

New Racing Rules

The Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) are updated every four years just after the Olympics. The new 2009 rules therefore run through until after the next games, i.e 2012. ISAF has published the new rules. A summary of the changes with explanations, together with the new rules can be seen at www.madforsailing.com (for those with access to this site).

Forts Race

A truly successful weekend. Fifty entries, sunshine and good sailing breezes. Well done to the organising team… and here’s an extract from an e-mail just received from Don Findlay, our guest race officer:- “Thank you for making us so welcome. It is a joy to come to WYC each year. I cannot stress too strongly that the control of the RIBs and drivers by Ian is exemplary.” Congratulations to Rob Laws and Stuart France, first WYC boat at 6th overall.

Winter Evenings

We have plans for a series of winter talks and presentations. An excuse to foregather for a drink and learn something interesting! Do you have any requests or suggestions for topics? Needn't be 100% sailing related. Please send a note to Mel in the office.

WYC at the Feva Worlds

Will Lowes and Hugo Tucker took 33rd in the Gold fleet of the Feva world championship in Gottskar, Sweden, from a total entry of over 100. They were 3rd overall in the Junior Champion category.

Congratulations Christian

Congratulations to Christian Brewer who, crewing for former Whitstable member Stuart Jardine, has just won the XOD Captains Cup in Cowes Week from a fleet of 80 boats over 8 days of racing. This is the sixth time Christian has won it with Stuart, and its Stuart's seventh win.
