2018 Gul GP14 World Championship

Well done to SSC competitors in this biennial world event held at Mount’s Bay, UK, last week. This event next takes place in our club in August 2020! 3 SSC GP12 teams entered in this 119 competitor event – Colman Grimes/Sam Wray finished 33rd, Doire Shiels/Andrew Sexton finished 46th and Cathal Sheridan/David Cooke finished 64th. Each were successful in receiving individual race prices as Colman 2nd Gold in Race 1, Doire 1st Silver in Race 5 and Cathal 3rd Silver in Race 8. Highlight amongst a great week was Colman’s 2nd place in the first race of the week. Good learnings made by David Cooke as he leads our preparation for 2020, of which more anon.

Some Updates…..

Please note

  1.  Results for Fireball and Wayfarer Nationals held in SSC recently are available above on the featured tab.  Well done to all SSC participants,
  2. Punting has been included in the Calendar tab (“Calendar Including Punting“) as above (ignore sidebar).  Please note that due to weather and changing events Punting can be a moveable feast and every attempt will be made to keep all informed via this website, your regular Newsletter and on SSC notice board, and
  3. Your WindGuru’s weather station as available on all pages of this website and directly is currently, due to mechanical difficulties, reporting lower than actual wind speeds.  After three years of constant working some repair work is required and hopefully will be completed within the next few weeks when parts arrive.  Note that wind direction and temperature are accurate.  We will advise when normal working is restored.    Now Repaired – Thanks to Michael Johnson!

This promises to be a very interesting talk. Non-members welcome.
