SAILING & CRUISING

Icebreaker Series

Forty Intrepid Crews took to their Dinghies on Bembridge Harbour on Sunday for the first two races of the Annual Brading Haven Yacht Club Open IceBreaker 12 Race Series, from January to March with the event Open to all Island Clubs and their Dinghy Classes.


By hosting the Winter Icebreaker Series, Brading Haven Yacht Club have seen an opportunity for Island Sailors both Adult and Cadet to enhance their skillsets, while maintaining their Sailing Fitness in the generally more placid conditions of the Bembridge Harbour and Bay area at this time of year.The day commenced with no wind, however after a short delay the Race Officer Chris Wilkinson took full advantage of the whole of the harbour to set an interesting and testing course in the light winds from the Northwest and a first race start of 3 Fleets Fast and Slow Handicap and Scows, commenced with some very close and tactical racing resulting in lead Changes in all the fleetswith the wind increasing slightly for the second race, it was shortened due to the ebbing tide!

We thank RO Chris Wilkinson and ARO Noreen Finlay plus all the patrol boats and shoreside crew.

Tuesday Talks

Further to my note about the Supper List for the 25th of January Talk I regret to say that I have recently been advised that the Caterers will be on holiday for the week of the Talk and that Supper will not now be available. Roger Herbert will still be giving his Talk at 8pm on the 25th about the Isle of Wight Marine Life.

Roger tells me that "In the context of earth history, forty years of change in our local marine wildlife might be seen as a 'blink of an eye' or a 'drop in the ocean'. However drawing on a few local case studies I will reflect on the magnitude and significance of observed changes and how we can adapt to current and future challenges"

I am sure this will be a most interesting Talk.

CLUB OPERATIONS

Covid-19 Measures

Dear Member,

Our Covid-19 measures remain as previously advised the Management Committee will review these by the end of January 2022. A reminder below:

The use of outside space and Offshore activities remain unaffected, the Changing Rooms will still be open, but use limited to 4 at anyone time, and sailors are encouraged to arrive and depart in their sailing gear.

Please follow the guidelines below when visiting the Clubhouse:

  • If you are feeling unwell or have been in close contact with someone who is unwell please do not visit the Club.
  • Undertake a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) and only visit the Club if the result is negative.
  • Use the wall sanitiser as you enter the Club.
  • Wear a mask whilst moving around.
  • Avoid queuing at the Bar and move away from the Bar once you have your drink(s).
  • Use the wipes and gloves provided to clean down the furniture you are using after use, and before also if wished.
  • Use the one-in-one-out system previously in place when using the toilets by rotating the "engaged" and "vacant" signs as you enter and exit.
  • Support the need for adequate ventilation through the Clubhouse at all times.

Our intention is that by following the above, everyone will feel as comfortable and safe as possible whilst still able to enjoy the Club, and we thank you in advance for your co-operation.

On behalf of the Management Committee.

Jeff Cowan
