Fun sailing on the river

Arden Sailing Club is a thriving club which has enjoyed many years of fun on the river Avon at Defford, near Pershore. There is organised dinghy racing on Wednesday evenings and Sundays during the summer along with many social events throughout the year. The club is an RYA approved training centre. We have a small fleet of club boats available and give friendly advice to new members encouraging them to take to the water in the improvers or full race programme or, of course, just for fun.

RACING RESULTS


Sunday 19th November 2017
Autumn Handicap 3 

A Beautiful Autumn afternoon greeted the 4 boats that made the start line for round 3 of the November Handicap series. A light wind promised drifting conditions for the race. However, competitors were surprised that whilst the breeze was light steady progress could be made. Evans in the Solo lead Bryden in the Heron over the start line but both were soon caught by Campbell in the Enterprise with Pinfield in the Mirror bringing up the rear. Apart from a slight confusion at the first mark the order remained set for the race with the gaps between boats gradually stretching out.

1 - Niall Campbell - Enterprise
2 - Ralph Evans - Solo
3 - David Bryden - Heron
4 - Keith Pinfield - Mirror.
