The annual Peace Bridge Race was held today. Starting the race was tricky as the wind was blowing from the NW and the tide was coming in. The decision was made to start the race going upwind heading to Leonard’s mark from the Perch. For some boats it was difficult to reach the mark against the tide. In light winds a big spread quickly occurred between the lead and following boats. Anton H/Joy W were going well and managed to catch up a bit. The race was shortened as the wind dropped. Congratulations to Ken and Davy L who won the race in a close battle with James P/Alan T the whole way up the river.

Many thanks to the rescue boats who came up the river and for providing the long tow home. Thanks also to the OD who had to make the calls to day.

Much the same conditions as Tuesday with two boats racing in light winds. The second race was abandoned due to light winds. George G was sailing but not racing.

Racing 16/04/19

Three boats racing in light winds. The second race was abandoned due to light winds.

Racing 04/04/19

No racing this evening due to inclement conditions 🙁

Racing 02/04/19

Evening racing started for the year tonight at 7.00pm. Just one race was held before darkness. It was windy (F4) and choppy with wind against tide. Anton H was sailing in his GP14 for the first time this season with Joy W. A technical matters slowed them down on the first beat but they soon recovered and made it round the course in good time.

The weather was truly nasty, squally and cold, when we were getting ready but once on the water it was grand.

Sat 20/04/18 Series A

Sailing from the perch to Fahan to Conniborrow to the Power station. Very strong ebb tide. Light winds. First race took 40 minutes. The OD shortened the race but not because of the light winds but rather because of a large freighter leaving the Port of Derry.  Three boats stayed on the far side of the channel and waited for the ship and tug to pass. In the second race the tide grew even stronger and some boats retired. Anto H and Joy W made it around the mark at Fahan only with great difficulty.

Congratulations to James P H and Alan T who win Series A

News came in via WhatsApp while we were sailing that Orla O D had given birth to a baby girl. Congratulations to Orla and Aidan O D and welcome to the world Miss Baby O D.

Sat 13/04/18 Series A

Sailing cancelled due to inclement weather

Sat 06/04/18 Series A

A bright windy day. Sailing to Conniborrow, reach across to Fahan back down to the start and around Leonards mark. X2. James and Alan established a good lead in race 1 and sailed very well. Bill and James sailed very well in race 2 closely followed by Ken and Davy L. Great to see George G out in race 2 in his Solo. Many thanks to OD Peter F and rescue cover Liam H. Without them we cannot sail, their work is greatly appreciated.

Sat 30/03/18 Series A

A fine day, with a good breeze. Sailing down the river to Conniborrow and Fahan. Aidan O D LFYC handicap has been adjusted to 1165. Ken L slipped in the boat and took a knock but still managed a very good place in race two. Race two had to be restarted as Bill and James J (I quote from the ODs notes) “went arseways around the marks”. A considerable technical achievement in a sailing boat – when you think about it! Commodore James P H and Alan T are sailing very well. Series A will be closely contested!

A special baby shower event was taking place in Maureen L’s house at the same time as the racing. The hospitality was excellent and the event went very well.

Sat 23/03/18 Series A

An early start with a 9.00am gun. 7 boats. Nice to see Owen McC in a Phantom and going well. A few adjustments to the LFYC handicap have been made. GP14s sailing on PY have been lowered from 1133 to 1130 in line with RYA recommendations. Aidan O D and Anton Hs Lasers have been reduced from 1185 to 1170 reflecting recent performances. Great to see George G back again for another year of sailing and going well in the Solo.

Start of season brings out all the new stuff. Congratulations to:
James P H who tried out a nice new fixed rudder,
Anton H who got a nice new Laser sail.
Owen McC had a first sail in a phantom.
Bill and James J launched their new GP14. Good luck guys, the boat looks great.
Ken Louden launched the first year of his 7th decade, congratulations to him, he is an advert for the health benefits of GP14 sailing!

Two great races were held in fine conditions. F3. Sailing in Culmore bay. A mark was laid over by the docks. A big tide was the reason for the early start and it showed in the second race. Getting around the mark at Harts proved to be a tricky task. Aidan O D came across the fleet on starboard in race one at the start of the race and held onto the lead throughout the race. James P H and Alan T showing fine form with a good win in Race 2. many thanks to Peter F as OD and Liam H as rescue cover. Thanks also to James P H whose fishing boat was used as the rescue boat until the LFYC boat is recovered from its winter storage.

Sat 16/03/18 The first race of the season

A cold and blustery day. Four boats braved it. Racing in Culmore bay. Aidan O D and Anton H sailing in Lasers, James P/Alan T and Ken L/Davy L sailing in GP14s. Everybody feeling a bit rusty. First capsize of the season award goes to Aidan O D. He recovered well and then got a great run and passed out everyone who were busy making life difficult for each other. Anton H lucky to stay in the boat after a double jibe mistake at the leeward mark. Ken and Davy L missed a mark and were dsq in Race 1

Second race started into a squall. James and Alan got line honours who are sailing very well, closely followed by Aidan O D. All boats finished very close to each other in both races.

James P/Alan T tried out a new fixed blade rudder and Anton H tried out a new sail. LFYC handicap was rolled over from last year with GP14s sailing on PY of 1133 and Anton H and Aidan O D lasers sailing at 1180.

Many thanks to Big Pete as OD and Liam H as rescue skipper.

Race 9, 24/11/18

This was the last race of the frostbite series. It was sailed in very light winds so just one race was sailed today. Starting at the Perch, beat up to Faughan, over to Conniborrow run back up to Leonards mark against the tide. Congratulations to Aidan O D who won the race today and the Frostbite series overall. Many thanks to all who sailed and to Ken L and the OD and Coxswain.

That’s it folks for another year. A great seasons sailing, see you all in March for the 2019 season.

Race 7, 8, 17/11/18

Light to medium winds today, bright sunshine, not really like a frostbite race at all. Race 1 was in culmore bay. Race 2 went down the river.

Anton H got out in front in Race 1 but had to mount a defence as winds dropped and Aidan O D made a nice counter move down the quay.

The tide had a greater effect in Race 2 with a course change to try stay in strong breeze. George G took back a place on handicap.

We all returned to the club house for coffee and were delighted to encounter a plate of buttered scones. Many thanks to Ken and Maureen L.

The current LFYC handicap is:

Aidan O D, Anton H and Kevin T are all on 1185. The club laser with Bill J is 1190. George G in the Solo is set to 1256.

Adjustment:

I am going to reduce Anton H and Aidan O D to 1180 from here onwards.

Race 6, 10/11/18

Todays sailing was very problematic, there was little or no wind and a very strong tide. Congratulations to James H who completed the course. There is a great video on LFYC Facebook group showing Aidan O D doing battle against the strength of the tide.

Race 4, 5 03/11/18

Two bullets for Aidan O D. Heavy enough breeze (F5). A few swimmers. Anton H went over to Leeward while running down from Harts. Aidan O D got blown over in a gust near the power station. Kevin T had a swim at the start line. It was that sort of day. All recovered well and sailed on. Many thanks to Liam H on rescue and Peter F as OD. Thanks also to Ken L helping out on shore. Coffee and biscuits afterwards. Nice.

Race 1,2,3 27/10/18

So here it is; The frostbite Series 2018. The entires this year are Aidan O D, Anton H, George G, Kevin T, Bill J, and others who show up on any particular day. Good luck to them all.

Day one had three races and started with a blast. Winds varied from zero to very heavy, nearly unsailable. Anton H and Aidan O D battled it out in Race 1 with Anton H just coming in ahead. Kevin T had a bit of a nightmare day and I think may have gone for a swim. Aidan O D and Anton H reversed roles in Race 2. Several people were over the line with a strong tide tending to push boats over. They came back and eventually the OD cleared the line and lowered the flags. There were periods where there was little or no wind, but it was short lull. It was gusty all day. A squall came through at the end of race two and it got very heavy. Two boats showed up on the line for race three. Anton H got very stuck in irons after missing a tack in high winds and did well to stay in the boat.

The course featured the Culmore Olympic Triangle starting at the perch up to Leonards mark reaching over to the power station then run up to a mark at the old quay then across to a boat mooring near the new club house then back and around the corner to Leonards Mark. Wind against tide caused good sized waves to form as the boats reached across from Leonards to the power station.
