DOLPHYN DIARY – 228 – 9th October 2017

Upcoming Club and Sailing Events are on the website and a full Sailing Calendar can be found at 

Dear Members;

In light of the serious increase of theft at the club over the past year, please be extra vigilant if you have boats on the marinas and the swings. Certain boats have been targeted out on the swing moorings over the weekend and items have been taken. Persons are possibly entering from the water, so please be cautious.

Warning to members
Please ensure your boat is securely locked. We suggest on-board boat alarms.

Wednesday 04/10/2017: Spring Twilight Series – Race 5.
Wednesday 04 October, Spring Twilight Series we finally got to sail after the last two weeks were blown out, the wind being calmer and the fleet of 11 boats set off in a light breeze of about 8 knots, unfortunately the breeze did not stay and course had to be shortened. 7 of the 11 entered boats completed the race with the top three being 1st Pure Magic, 2nd Jabulani and 3rd Firefly. 
Saturday 07/10/2017: Double-Hander Series 1 – Race 1 of 4
Saturday 07 October, Double Handed race saw another day of gentle North Westerly winds and a reaching course was set for the fleet to get back in time for the rugby. There was a great turn out for the race with 12 boats entered, 1st Little Wing, 2nd Pure Magic and 3rd Opskud.

New paddlers at FBYC (kayakers & surfskis)

We have recently had a number of new Kayakers and Sufskiers joining the club so are planning a very informal paddle get-together at 10am on Saturday 14th October.

Hopefully we can answer any questions you have, give you some tips or point you in the right direction if you need specific help. 

This paddle is also for people who are not able to get out on the water as often as they would like (we’d like you to come down and give your kayak some exercise!!!)

As a further incentive, we have planned this on the same day as the Beerfest so if the weather does not co-operate, come down, have a beer & ask your questions anyway!

PLEASE NOTE: Life jackets & splash covers are compulsory. 

We look forward to seeing you down at the kayaker’s area from 10am next Saturday 14th October!
