The Commodore and members of WSC wish to express their sympathy and support for the members of Cherbourg Yacht Club and all those people affected by the attacks in Paris on Friday.

Many YCC members live and/or work in Paris – when I rang club secretary Anne Mataguez she told me that a cousin of hers had been in the Stade de France, and that many people in Cherbourg would have had family in Paris at the time.

The tricolore will fly at half-mast at the club during this week to demonstrate our support at this difficult time.

Day 4 - AP over A

Racing postponed for today due to a strong wind forecast.

It’s not long now before Weymouth welcomes the Squib fleet to compete in its famous waters.  And on top of the racing we want you and your families to really enjoy your stay in the town.  So we have got a programme for the evenings but we also know that you will want some time to explore the abundant restaurants, pubs and other distractions in the town.  The details of the programme will be given to you when you arrive in a Championship Handbook.  We won’t be asking you to make any decisions before you arrive.

Remembrance Sunday saw a late start in blustery conditions for the final race of the YCW Autumn Series for cruisers, hosted by Weymouth SC.
In all, 24 yachts competed in the series which saw a wide range of conditions; from sunny light airs through to yesterday's showers and gusts of 30knts!

Some video footage of Jammy Dodger sailing on the reaches can be seen here

Please listen on Ch.9 for start instructions - we may lay a hut start if conditions or driver availability prevent Viking being used.

Please also note:

  • The class split has changed by two points for this series, moving Effusion and Sunshine into Class 3 from Class 4.
  • The start for the second race in the series on 13th November starts after lunch as it is Remembrance Sunday.

Two classes (‘Class 3’ & ‘Class 4’), will be split at IRC TCC 0.928.

Class 3 (rating above 0.928) - Red, White and Blue vertical striped pennant

It’s official – we like Weymouth so much we’re adding a day to the Transmanche weekend, so that we have a day to enjoy Weymouth and meet friends at Weymouth Sailing Club! Such is the feeling at Cherbourg Yacht Club, and it will be up to us at WSC to add to the traditional culinary reception organised so admirably by Steve and Josie and Cheryl, maybe with an inter-club sailing event in the Bay – I favour an event with the results of every boat from each club counting! Or a duel in Grand Surprises, perhaps..

James Dadd and Charlene Jackson from the RORC Rating office in Lymington braved the downpour on Tuesday evening to visit Weymouth SC.
Over three hours, they shared some key information about the rating process and gave advice to owners from both WSC and CCSC on improving their yacht's performance and getting a more accurate rating for racing. Many thanks to everyone who attended this fun and lively Q&A!
