Bart's Bash Info - only a few hours to go!!

By way of an update; Bartley Sailing Club have now signed up 49 (includes 7 K20 youth sailors not shown)which is brilliant so far.

Many thanks to all those club members who have registered for Sundays 21st Bart’s Bash and have generously contributed so far. Amazingly our fund raised (as of 4pm ) is £165.00 and I’m sure we shall get more on the day.... I’m certainly going round with my bucket so be warned!!!

The main purpose for this event is to raise awareness and to break the Guinness book record for the largest sailing race ever!!!

On the back of which we are using this opportunity to gather interest in Bartley Sailing Club and hopefully from our existing members to spread the word of all the great things we are doing to improve sailing and racing conditions for our members to enjoy.

Through Howard Eeles Outdoor Pursuit Centre we have created a unique opportunity to provide high quality outdoor activities to School, Youth Groups, Further Education and adults. These stimulating adventurous outdoor activity experiences are designed to educate and motivate young people and others in a challenging and safe environment which Bartley Sailing Club is ideal to do. (further information via our web site or contact Howard on 0121 476 4301 or 07803357143)

So by supporting this event you are becoming part of the biggest sailing group ever known, whilst also supporting BSC ongoing future development.

2 sleeps to go!!!

You betcha!! We are on the verge of making history in the world of sailing and   starting something amazing in Bart's memory. Every individual in this event,   be they competitor, volunteer, supporting relative or organiser will come   together on Sunday and achieve something truly special, bonding the world of   sailing across continents and boat classes like never before.

Every one   of you rocks the socks off the sailing world and we want to wish you every   success with your event. Have an amazing day, enjoy your family and friends   and we hope you get a good wind in your sails....

Win a trip to sail with Ben Ainslie!

Alongside   our previously announced competition   to fly to San Fran and sail an AC45 with Iain Percy, we are delighted to   announce today that Sir Ben has also thrown his hat in the ring with a rather   special 'thank you' prize of his own. Are you ready?? It's a bit of a   belter....

Every person,   and we mean EVERY person, who signs up to fundraise with a JustGiving page   through our site and raises the suggested donation amount of £5 or more is   going to be entered into the competition to win this prize.

Four of   our lucky fundraisers, plus a friend or responsible adult, are going to be   invited to visit the Postmouth base of Ben's BAR America's Cup team and go   out sailing on an AC45 for the day!! Ben is also donating some additional   signed clothing that will be given by the same ballot to some runners up.

Tue Lasers ....ITs all over bar the shouting and clams of un fair handicaps etc

Tue Lasers ....ITs all over bar the shouting and clams of un fair handicaps etc

Final results posted

 

Can you believe it 20 weeks have past and what a great season we have had... so many tails to tell. From Jeremy dominating at the start of the season,  our Commodore Mike joining in and showing us his skills (plus spectacular capsizes) to the quiet and deadly Mike Acaster who just plug away at the top each week and calmly moved up the leader board, whilst Richard was training hard to master his roll tacks.

BUT IN THE END THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE---------- 2014 BSC Laser personal handicap Champion is Mike Acaster congratulations

I have attached the Full Sailwave file attached and it should be available soon on the BSC web site.

As you can see below the Top of the leader board is divided by only a few points !!!.

Taking race 20 results into consideration Richard Baker and Michael Parker both sailed so well and consistently improved over the whole season, but I know that in the last race the wind dropped and Mike managed to get away leaving the battle at buoy 0... and well that was it....

Last year’s winner Giles was also so close with only one point in it between him and Simon, Giles nearly took glory again with his amazing start on the last race but unfortunately headed out to a patch of dead wind and it was all over!!! A real shame..

Robin Pitt had moments of glory with 5 top places but throughout the season also had some which he would rather me not mention... but it does show he’s got it...Jeremy was clearly in the driving seat but after his back injury had to slow down and all he could do was smile and wave!!! Our “SuperBoy” Mike found that we “Laser guys” make it look easy!! But it’s not... in the end he had a credible season and finish 3rd overall in the scratch with only 1.5 off Simon.

Gary Allcock finally had to smile as he not only finished 10th with 4 top positions he also managed to beat Robin in the last race!!!

John Ellis Rose was not far behind with a few great results and some that needed a digit removing!! he did manage to win in Race 16 though the week of buying us all a drink!!!! (did he?)

Emma Hancox in her 4.7 sailed really well but with the lighter airs not being kind, it was a case of not doing enough races to have the vital discard... anyhow she takes the first lady position...

Jim did a similar thing by just missing out, do to his discards but was getting stronger all season.

Ed Higson, what can we say... young blood that has great skill..... was in poll but needed to do more races... he has so much glassware anyhow!!! And more to come I’m sure!

Alastair also missed out do to discards but was very consistent when he came. Ian the dark horse... god knows how good he would be if he upgraded his laser!!!

Tony Cliff had a season of uphill improvement starting at the back end and ending with him never giving up and in the top slots of results. So as he practices over the winter he will be a force to be reckoned with next season chaps.

Debbie was our 2nd placed Lady but missed out do to discards, real shame as she came 1st 2nd and 3rd in the scratch races!!!

Brad won our youth “pain in the **** prize”!! seriously he has improved and with two 1st, 3rd and 6th which is a brilliant result. Just need to sail a Laser more often mate!!!

On to our 3rd place lady Katie who joined us for 6 sessions and had impressive results, as did Ann 4th place lady who really push Emma at the start of the series but because of change of job could not make Tuesdays.

Other sailors Tom Clarke, Steve Thomas, Nigel Hudson, Chris Thomas, Andrew Gill, Neil Boneham, and Dan Richardson all who joined in seemed to enjoy themselves.

NOW FOR THE BIG LAST NIGHT OF THE SEASON – Laser Prizing giving

 

Please make sure you are there I have a number of prizes to award

 

Remember that evening 9th September is also our Bottle race where we hope you will all invite your partners along and come and have a great evening racing and Curry and Beer at the club

As always any issues please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to amend.

Kind regards

Barts Bash' on 21st September. Bartley sailing club is supporting the event

FURTHER UPDATE Barts Bash -To all BSC members

As per the posting below :- As you will no doubt have seen on the internet, social media and TV there is a world record race attempt called 'Barts Bash' on 21st September. Bartley sailing club is supporting the event and I urge you to register and  race on 21st September to help achieve the world record and raise some funds for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation Charity.

To comply with the Guinness world record attempt we need to organise a race sometime on 21st September. We need as many club members as possible to enter the race to support  the world record attempt. It does not matter if you don't normally race or if you normally race on a Saturday  please put 21st September 11.00 in your diary and turn up for what is likely to be the biggest race ever in the history of our club and be part of the world record attempt. Further details will be made available nearer the date.

Yes the car park will be overflowing, yes the changing rooms will be overflowing and yes it will be busy on the water. But these are minor things compared with the aims and goals of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation Charity and for one race on one day I would ask that all club members make a real effort to participate and be part of this fantastic event.

So the plan is to have one long race @ 11am ..... Sunday 21st September 2014

You NEED to pre register either at the bar with supplying your boat details and paying the £5 entry fee/donation fee and we shall enter you on the website.

IT’S SO CLOSE AT THE TOP of the personal handicaps

Well this is going to be a cruncher of a last race on Tues 2nd September... with Mike Acaster just ahead of Richard and Michael it’s all down to the last race...

In fact it does work out that as the final discard comes into play with 10 Races counting that we have 8 sailors fighting for the top winning positions

Mike 36 , Richard, 37,Michael 38, John 40,Simon 43, Giles 44,Robin 53, Jeremy 55.

Regarding the scratch series I have also attached the results which again shows results being so close at the TOP....

With lots of goodies to present at the Prize giving evening on the 9th Its all to play for!!!!

Remember 9th September our Bottle race and Final Prize Givingwhere we hope you will all invite your partners along and come and have a great evening racing and Curry and Beer at the club

As always any issues please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to amend but only for a large fee!!!!

As we are now using Sailwave (through the great help from Mark and Colin) which is a free software available to anyone, it has been suggested that the club make a donation to the guy that set this up. I fully support this and wondered how the Laser fleet felt if we contributed something to this from our prize fund monies? Please let me have your thoughts.

Kind regards

Week 18 Laser sailors - Tues evening Race results updated

Week 18 Laser sailors - Tues evening Race results updated

As you can see below we have sailed 18 races meaning only two left and the Top of the leader board is divided by only a few points !!!.

Taking last night’s results into consideration Michael Parker is now on top with Richard just behind by two points leaving the next three by only another 4points

So there’s lots to fight for in the closing stages. Just so it’s clear the table on the right is your personal PYN and also in times (add 20 points for each minute onto our 1074)

I do hope you have all enjoyed the racing it been so much fun so far.

So the onto the last few weeks. 

Remember 9th September our Bottle race and Final Prize Givingwhere we hope you will all invite your partners along and come and have a great evening racing and Curry and Beer at the club

17 Lasers turnout for a fantastic race on Tue

17 Lasers turnout for a fantastic race on Tue

WOW what a fantastic Laser turnout 17 boats on the water

What a fantastic fleet to have out on the water and thanks to Dave & Pete we have a great course meaning there was lots of tough close call racing.

In the personal handicap fleet Alastair returned this week and showed us all the way round he was just under 2mins from the scratch boat and finished 6 in the race. Well done him!

Again our two ladies Anna and Emma, did really well and in the bar afterwards I was reminded of the difference in RYA handicaps and that ED and I need to watch out as Radials and 4.7 are on the move and with them finishing 6/7th we need to watch our backs!!! Fighting talk I say, but we look forward to the battles out on the water next Tuesday.

Jeremy and Robin had their usual battle but I was told that after a nifty manoeuvre at one of the buoys Robin was left chasing. Michael Parker was back on form and only 2.45mins behind the leaders closely followed by Mike Acaster and Giles who are gathering pace now and heading up the leader board. In fact Michael and Mike are just two points off second place overall congrats to them... Second overall is Richard Baker who last night needed to give his gear a wash, was awarded the GIBSON SWIM trophy as Robin Pitt announced in the dinghy park.

After struggling again with his trolley wheels Gary Allcock made it to the start line... on the rare occasions we have seen him this year Gary has clock up enough to still qualify and is currently mid fleet I just behind Tom Clarke who also was only 5 secs behind him on the night!!! Go for it Tom!!

It was great to see our Wednesday man Chris Thomas joining us who is now getting keen and is looking to upgrade some bits on his boat so watch out guy he is on the move!!

Mike Gibson, is becoming a dab hand now in the Laser and showed us at the front why he is a national champion !!! he over took me!!! And even Ed looked worried at one stage!!..But the evening honours had to go to ED Higson.... he managed to pull away at the start with Mike and John and after the first downwind leg hit buoy 5 did turns but managed to recover. Then on the beat after (he claims) being let through by the commandeering chief he pull away.... whilst I was practicing death rolling which didn’t help speed allowing Mike to catch up.  

We had a new member turn up but unfortunately signing on is a must as well as coming to the BAR afterwards so whilst the guy in the blue hull did really well in 9th  we shall up date his details at a later stage.

We were still missing a few regulars John Ellis Rose Simon Hardiman, Brad/Howard and Debbie... so NEXT week lets really go for it and see if we can break the 20!!!.

This is the sort of number we need for our national Grand Prix event on the 20th Julyso please remember to all come down it shall be a great event and raffle prizes etc so polish your boats and let’s make it an event to remember

RESULTS:-

I must start with an apology as I mistakenly used Anna’s and Mike’s pervious weeks handicap (well pointed out by the executive committee!) so it does slightly change the positions from last night which I have now corrected.

So far with 9 races sailed its 5 to count so next week there will be a big change you will notice as some people have only sailed 5 so they don’t have a discard etc. Also with 6 to count some of leaders are going to have to carry a large poor result so you will see that only a few points splits the top 8 boats.

Therefore I have highlighted the counted points in yellow so you can see how it adds up.
