    Although still waiting final confirmation, we expect the Frostbite trophy to take place on 2nd January 2011 at midday.

    An excellent way to start a new sailing year and we hope to see many out on the water for then.

    The New ELYC went live this morning, the site has been designed to be easy to navigate and to add additional functionality and capability both to aid both the running of the club and also to our members.

    For the first time ELYC membership is online and we have also brought the online bookings for training and events into hte same website.

    There is a member section which requires members to log in to see, and includes discussion forums and other member specific information. From a management viewpoint it is easier to manage communications and membership and financial information as this can all be done within the management section of the site.

    Big swell made ELYC’s first Powerboat Challenge live up to its name as 17 competitors took part in an event that measured handling skills as much as speed. Competition was very close around the obstacles. The course included tight slalom course followed by reversing around the buoy whilst trying not to flood the boat. Other challenges included coming to a stop, reversing into a “Garage” and finally coming alongside.

    Bonus time could be secured by determining missing safety items that had been taken off one of one of the RIBs in the store.  In the adult race less than 15 seconds separated the top 3 with Richie Hales (4mins 13seconds) just taking the win from Barry White (4mins 15seconds) and Alastair Dean (4mins 27seconds).

    The Juniors also posted respectable times with Chris Devine (5mins 22seconds) taking the title followed by Andrew Stewart (5mins 35seconds) and Andrew Laing (6mins 10seconds).

     

    It was a very successful afternoon. Many thanks to Sheila Smith for helping with timing and generally keeping everyone organised.

    38 Cadets took part in the ELYC Cadet regatta over the weekend of 14th and 15th August.  It was great to see that together with some of the more experienced cadets, many of the participants taking part had undertaken training this year including those from both the Summer School and the Bass Rock Bandits.

    There was a briefing  and on water coaching from Michael Gorzowski, RYA Scotland Volvo Champion Club Coach who helped out all weekend.

    Saturday’s start was delayed due to surf
    in the fairway, which meant waiting for the tide to fill in a little but close racing took part across both Topper and Handicap Fleets. After the 2 Races on Saturday, Calum Finlayson, Lewis Grant and Andrew Scott led the Topper Fleet after, while the Lasers of Chris Scott, Ewan Rycroft and Sarah Alexander led the Handicap Fleet.

    On Sunday the swell had died down, but racing had to be abandoned during the second race as the weather gods where against us and sent in the Haar. After everyone was safely back on shore there was a prize giving.

    Many thanks to all that helped out at the weekend especially Ben and Alex acting as race Officers, the rescue boat crews, Jane C-M and Lucy Gibbons for organising the event. We hope to see the cadets continue their successful weekend and take part in club racing.
