SAILING THIS WEEK
SOUTHPORT YACHT CLUB INSHORE DIVISION – Wednesday 26th May 2021
A stunning autumn afternoon here at Hollywell on the eve of what has been termed the astronomical phenomenon of the year with skippers and crew racing under a full blood super moon.
Twenty six boats had a clean and colourful start in a light 5 knot NW breeze at 1630hrs. Spinnakers were hoisted right from the start to get underway. Despite the lack of wind, everyone was happy just to be on the water soaking up the moon beams. With the breeze not picking up at any point during the race, the Race Committee decided to shorten the course.
Congratulations OCEAN RACER CHASER in 1st place, MISTER BOJANGLES in 2nd place and TAKEN FOR GRANTED in 3rd place.

SOUTHPORT YACHT CLUB INSHORE DIVISION – Saturday 29th May 2021
With a strong wind warning offshore, our Inshore fleet were somewhat protected within the Broadwater. The WSW winds were still up there in excess of 15 knots creating some spirited and challenging racing. It was a good turn out for our winter racing with 12 boats underway today officiated by Race Control Officer Phil “Krusty” Keir.
1st place went to 4DC’s Paul Bain and crew. 2nd place went to one of our Skuds, KAMIKAZE. Well done Neil Rowsthorn and your crew member. LICKETY SPLIT crossed the line for 3rd. A great result for Kevin Clarkson and crew, true gentlemen of the sport.
A special thank you to our sponsors Club Marine.
