UPCOMING SAILING EVENTS:

Wed, 04 Jul 2018
Dave Hudson - Talk on “Anatomy of a Collision”
Start time: 18h00 - 19h00
ANATOMY OF A COLLISION

The most common serious collision in keel-boat racing, all over the world, happens when a port boat which is ducking a starboard boat loses “rudder grip” and T-bones the starboard boat.

We’ve seen at least five of these collisions in Table Bay in the past few seasons, with damage totaling over R2 million - no serious injuries so far, but the risks are there.

Dave Hudson’s talk on July 4th will offer practical boat-handling tips on how best to avoid this type of accident, as well as tactical tips on how to come away from a port-starboard situation in the strongest possible position.

We start promptly at 18h00 and finish promptly at 19h00.

SA SAILING AND THE CRUISING KEELBOAT SAILOR


Cruising keelboat (CKB) sailors question what does SA Sailing do for them? Ten days ago Philip Baum and Peter Hall, President and Vice President respectively, met with members of the Royal Cape Yacht Club at the invitation of the club’s Commodore Vitor Medina and then Vice Commodore Luke Scott. A contingent of cruising keelboaters were present.

Four of SA Sailing’s Five Point 2015 Strategy are highly relevant to the CKB community i.e. Professional Management, Access to Water, Growing the Base and Transformation. Read more...
