WHSC Fun Day

WHSC FUN DAY Aug 4th 2018

DALE MORRIS

All two-handed sailors (under 16) are welcome to participate in the Dale Morris Perpetual Trophy. Starting at Stoney Cove, one sailor swims to the boat at Goosey. Both sail to the first mark and perform a ‘man overboard’, then sail to the second mark and perform a capsize. First boat (on handicap) across the finish line wins!

PARENT & CHILD RACE

Optimist sailors grab your parents for the Parent and Child Race! Starting at the slip, parents sail the oppi round the mark and back to the slip before handing over to their partner. The child will sail the same course with the winning boat first to finish at the slip.

Sign Up on the notice board for both races if interested!

Please Note: No club boat rentals available for these race

Robert Marchant causes confusion wherevers she goes:)

On Sunday Fulmar Fever was mentioned by the reporters on the start of the race near Cowes, 

With a boat built in England and a Sail number FR14 she was mentioned as an interesting combination

Of an English boat with French sail number FR-14 the reporter failed to see she was sailed under the Irish flag of WHSC

and called the Skipper Robert Marchant out in his best French accent !

Then yesterday , due to a computer glitch Fulmar Fever was 1st on IRC overall and in his Class ! note the article of W.N.nixon

http://afloat.ie/sail/events/fastnet-race/item/36816-dunmore-east-s-fulmar-fever-has-her-moment-of-glory-as-plymouth-celebrates-volvo-65-s-successful-debut

Must have been a great feeling for Fulmar Fever as they still had to round the Fastnet at this time.

Fulmar Fever rounded the Fastnet at midnight last night and they are doing a fantastic job 44th in the large class of nearly 90 yachts and 221 overall is something to be proud of

I spoke to Robert last night and all are in good spirit and looking forward to hoist the spinnaker back to the finish line in Plymouth

With Dunmore sailors Dave Delahunty, Fergal Bonner they show what Dunmore sailors are made of.

Keep up the good work !

Fulmar fever can be followed on Yellow Brick Tracker.
