Santa Irene Club de Vela Newsletter - 20th September 2012

It looks like rain in Cherry Blossom Lane, thank goodness; but I hope it clears for the weekend.
Sailing is still top the agenda and what a wonderful day on Sunday 16th. Houri and I were invited to sail on “Blitzen” Ian´s 25 ft sailing cruiser. In a steady force 2 heading towards a F3. We were sailing comfortably with David trimming the Sails to get the best speed Out of Her. With us was the “Macgregor 28”; plus a number of Dinghies including the red sails of “Casi Casi” and Lydon enjoying him self on his “Catapult Catamaran”.

September will see the return of many of our Sailors; this is an opportunity to remind you of our new Venue: the new club House “Tela Marinera” which is directly opposite the new Marina, Garrucha.

Our “”Para Olympics” Sailors did us “Proud”; there are only 3 types of boats involved, the single hander “2.4 m”, the “Skud 18” with a crew of 2 and the “Sonar” with a crew of 3 for me they were all Medal winners. Briton had not won a Medal since sailing was introduced into the “Para Olympics Games” in 2000 at the Sydney Games.

Helena Lucas was our Gold Medal winner in the “2.4 m” , she was the only women in the fleet, “Well Done” H, yes they do call her that. In the 2 person “Scud 18” Alexandera Ricktman and Niki Birrell won Bronze medals. In the 3 person “Sonar” we were judged to have finished in 5th place, having received a 4 point Penalty for an incident which happened off the water!! a big desapointment for the crew: John Robertson, Hannah Strodel and Steve Thomas. They are a appealing against the Penalty which denied them a Bronze medal, I wonder what nationality the Judges were ?? The last day of Racing was canceled due to the lack of wind.

Although Sailing was introduced to the Olympics in 1900; Para Olympic Sailing did not bigin until 2000 at the “Sydny Games”. I became interested in Disabled Sailing when I did a course with RYA “Sailability” in the UK. it was 1999. There were sailors with a big variety of disabilities including a Blind lady sailor.
Perhaps our best known disabled sailor is Geoff Holt who sailed single handed around the British Ilse in 2007. He then sailed across the Atlantic in 2010.

If you are interested in Sailing and it is never too late, visit us at our Club house “Tela Marinera” opposite the new Marina at Garrucha any Sunday at 11 am.

Take care John
