Packing away

Sailing is now over for this season and boats are being loaded into the shed for the winter for the next few days.

Counting down

The second last weekend of the season comprised racing on Saturday and general sailing on Sunday. The weather on Sunday started a bit grey but there was a good breeze and the sun came out after a while. Some members sailed up river by Moncrieff Island but the wind got rather light and shifty but that didn't hold Keiran back choosing a kayak to complete a circumnavigation. As the tide started to ebb, one member found he was heading slowly towards Dundee despite pointing the boat towards Perth so the safety guys had one rescue to perform. It happens to the best of us!

Summer returns

After a cold damp windy sail pn Sunday, conditions were much more gentle this week tempting one member to venture out for an impromptu sail.

Another windless day

Conditions on Saturday were disappointing from a sailing point of view. One thing you do need is wind but it was having the day off yet again. There seem to have been a few of these the last fortnight.

Sunday morning sailing

Six boats had an early rise on Sunday to enjoy a "Heathen's" race. A figure eight course with the first mark west of the Friarton Bridge and even the Mirror completed four rounds comfortably.

One good night from three

No sailing on Wednesday, rain and no wind, Thursday not much better a real struggle to keep going but Friday saw great conditions.

Friendship Weekend

posted 15 Jul 2018, 14:51 by John Ferguson

Two very different days made up the racing for the Friendship Trophy with sunshine and a few capsizes on Saturday and drizzle and a lot of drifting backwards on Sunday. Big tides and little flow in the Tay after the dry spell made for testing conditions. Not many passed the test!

Newburgh Race

posted 8 Jul 2018, 14:43 by John Ferguson

A good fast sail down to Newburgh this weekend for  most of the thirteen boats which started. We did think we'd lost Doug and Audrey but they turned up like the cow's tail as we were setting off for home. Most of the Lasers also sampled the waters but were quickly up and going again. About half the fleet managed to sail all the way back including Rick and Euan here, which was pretty hard work into the wind against the now ebbing tide.

Perth SC's answer to Masterchef, who can barbecue the perfect sausage is serious business especially with the judge breathing down your neck.

Regatta days.

Perth SC Regatta took place this weekend. Summer seemed to have returned with sunshine and wind enjoyed by those sailing. Our usual Saturday night barbecue was well attended with most choosing to sit outdoors. With a little more wind on Sunday, there were a few capsizes and breakages but recoveries and repairs were seen to in good time.
