Newsletter Mk8 - Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club
RPCYC Sailing newsletter February 2016
Dear Club members and West Hoe Club members,
A belated Happy New Year to you all. A stiff North Westerly is blowing 30 knots so I've abandoned work on my boat and
thought it would be much better to catch up with the sailing news from last season and look forward to the new one.
The table below shows the podium places for last season with club members well represented. Almost incredibly, we lost
no races in the main part of the season with the weather. There were summer gales but they seemed to come through on
a Wednesday or a Friday. There were good turnouts in all fleets but they waxed and waned when the school holidays
arrived.
The Autumn series after a slow start got away with most of its races but it was breezy!
The use of a temporary mark kept us out of the Cattewater after the starts and there will be a little fine-tuning of its
position (when it is used) next season to avoid frightening the swimmers and to try and escape the frustrating wind
shadow in a northerly breeze. There seemed to be lots of northerly and easterly winds last year with few Thursday's
having a prevailing south westerly.

Chris Hampe worked hard as Sailing Secretary last year (and in recent years) to put together a full programme of events.
He is having a change of career, which will mean he has less time, so he has passed on his duties to me. Everyone at
1
the club wants to say 'thank you' as he kept the sailing going through a very tricky period, we look forward to seeing your
transom on the water Chris. Another stalwart of last and recent seasons has been Ade Beavan Smith who has organised
and crewed safety cover. We have asked a great deal and we need to say a big thank you to him too. The intention next
season is to try and lighten his load (more later).
Sprinkled during the season have been races the club organised for other classes (Larks, Enterprises and Mirrors) that
can be an important earner for the club. A few club members represented us at the Port of Plymouth dinghy regatta and
many others crewed or helmed on boats successfully in other clubs series throughout the summer.
Prize-giving was well attended in the Autumn and we had a social night in January with entertaining and scary talks from
West Hoe sailor Jennie King and Eric, skipper of Rumpleteazer.
WEST HOE SAILING CLUB
The Squibs are looking forward to the 2016 Force 4 Evening Summer Series and the initiatives being introduced by the
new PRO, John Ingram. In addition this year to competing in Plymouth Regatta, the Squibs have also decided to
reintroduce some weekend racing and plan to race on two Sundays in 2016 with the possibility of extending the idea in
2017 if it proves successful. 2016 is an exciting year for the Squib Class with the new prototype boat produced by
Rondar currently undergoing trials, the national championships in June at Weymouth, the most popular venue, and a new
event, the European Cup, being hosted by the Sailing Club of Lac Cazaux near Bordeaux in September. Team White
Magic (David Wines and Keith Davies) have already entered both events and its hoped that a number of other Plymouth
Squibs will also enter. Before all that, however, the Class will be getting together in late February for annual Plymouth
Fleet Squib Dinner. This popular season “launcher” which has once again been organised by John Lewis is this year
being held at The Waterfront restaurant.
WHSC members will also be actively involved in a number of other classes and events. Keith Davies will be onboard
Steve Northmore's J70 which is entered for a number of events including the nationals in Plymouth in September, Paul
Hardy will be racing his Devon Yawl with the YYC fleet, Keith Woodgate has a full season of racing planned for his
Charisma - Calypso, Dave Burrell will be once again helping to organise the Plymouth Classics event, and Bob Rimmer
will be cruising his Contessa 32.

Plans for next season
Most importantly the planned calendar for next season is below.

As I mentioned earlier, the dinghies cannot race without appropriate safety cover and we were a whisker away from
cancelling races last season. To help Ade we will need to ask sailing crews to take a turn in the safety boats. Ade has put
on training courses for the helms (RYA Safety boat) and crew (RYA Powerboat level 2) and will do so again during the
season. At the moment we have a handful of qualified racers who will take a turn to enable everyone else to sail. It isnʼt
reasonable or fair to ask them to miss too much of their own racing to enable some 50 other boats to race each week.
We will be asking people who enter the series to be prepared to take their turn in boats occasionally.
Another area of concern last year was staffing the race office, without those good people we cannot race. Some sailors
and West Hoe supporters did help out last year either as Race Officer or on the line but not enough! We are fortunate this
season that John Ingram has volunteered to be our Chief Race Officer, this is a big relief to all who race but again he will
need help from time to time, so if you enter a series, be prepared to occasionally help. John will be asking for reps from
each class of dinghy and the squibs so that we can meet occasionally to give feedback on racing.
Communication
We will need your email address (if we have not got it already) to try and improve communication and the sailing section
of the clubʼs website should soon contain all the information you need to know. This information and some wider sailing
news will also be available on the ʻSail Plymouth facebook pageʼ. You donʼt need to sell your soul to facebook to see it.
Just put the phrase into your search engine.
A plea to non-racing club members
If would like to join the line crew on a Thursday evening from 5-30pm until around 8pm please let me know. You will
receive gentle training, ʻtoss some buntingʼ (not a term of abuse!), have some fun and join us for supper afterwards, that
goes for crewing the RIBs too. What could be better that being in charge of a 40hp RIB on a beautiful summerʼs evening?
(apart from racing a dinghy!). Any budding photographers are welcome to get images of club sailing to me so that we can
decorate newsletters and maybe the clubʼs walls. A prize will be given for the best entry this year.
3
Other plans are to read out the results after supper and giving weekly prizes (something drinkable no doubt). Keeping a
dinghy on the dinghy park until the end of September will be free for members (who will have priority places) this year
and at £40 for visiting sailors who enter for the whole summer. Andy is looking to organise some local cruising this year,
if anyone is interested please contact [email protected] with the heading ʻCruisingʼ.
Events that the club is hosting includes the Hurley Ownerʼs Association “Bring Your Hurley Home” event scheduled for
22 to 24 July this summer. Hurley yachts were ʻbornʼ in Plymouth and their event this year is to celebrate 50 years since
Hurley 22s started being built by George Hurley at Richmond Walk by inviting 50 Hurleys back to their home for a
celebratory sail past Plymouth Hoe. Events will be witnessed by George Hurleyʼs surviving wife who is flying in from the
USA especially to unveil a commemorative Plymouth City Council plaque in Richmond Walk.
The final word is that Andy Thomas, recently retired steward of the club, is now the Rear Commodore Sail and joins the
new Rear Commodore House and Geoff Wheeler the new Commodore. A big welcome to them for stepping up.
st
Donʼt wait until the registration evening on Thursday 31 March to get into the club especially as the Sunday carvery is
st
back on and the new menu (see below). Until then, winter well, let me know please if you can help with our 1 event of
2016, the Plymouth Gin series during April and get the word around the port of an exciting season to come here at the
Corinthian. New members are always welcome, there is no need for them to sail or have a boat!
Best wishes,
Steve Oliver, Sailing Secretary, email: [email protected]
