Due to the absence of a Rack Chairman I am proposing to organise a rack working party on Sunday 21st October commencing at 10.00am.

The purpose of the work party is to remove redundant planking and other items which are cluttering up the west racks. This should generate additional rack spaces.

As most of you are aware we are currently having difficulty accessing the cellar and hence cannot get to the trolley. We will have to resort to brute force and ignorance to remove the old timbers (there are about a dozen of them) from the West Rack.

If you can spare some time please come down and help out. The more there are the easier it will be!

We have had a busy month, stated with a successful Old Leigh Regatta which saw our neighbours taking the prizes and out numbering us on the water. A couple of Autumn points followed before we held the Peter Cotgrove Memorial race with 18 boats taking part, the decanter and the gin went up the creek for the first time, with Benfleet member, Dave Chamberlain, I wonder if we pressure BYC to come back into the circle of clubs running the race!!

A very windy forecast for Sunday 23rd resulted in me postponing the Interclub Dinghy Team Races for a week. We ran the team races on Sunday 30th with 48 boats on the start line, all finished the race although 2 managed to miss the IDM and were disqualified as a result. At last we managed to win one of the trophies, our Solo team won the single handed Silver Sail trophy. Our three mixed boats had a go at the Operatic Cup but were beaten by the Benfleet team. The Essex YC teams won the Ingram Shield and the Cadet Cup and the Thames Trophy for best overall performance. Had we had more boats on the water, we may have done better. Unfortunately the Essex racers made us look very lean on the water, and we used to decry their ability to get boats on the water! Can you we do better next year?

I would like to record thanks, to all those who have helped me run the races during September.

If you are interested, I have posted some photo’s and short video’s that I took from the Race hut for the Interclub race. It really did look fantastic, to see so many boats out on the water and thanks to everyone that took part and helped. THANK YOU!!
