 Good evening.....a quick catch up on the YSC week. Thank you to all who responded about the trailers. Martin is still sorting so if you havn't got in touch he'd be pleased to hear from you. We will have to make a decision about those left without owners.
I caught Richard and Mark planning last Saturdays session. Thank you to all the OOD's and AOOD's who ran this weeks sessions...I realise family life is busy and weekends are short...we all appreciate you making the effort to keep everyone racing.
The kids who came for the Come and Try session on Tuesday left with the buzz of sailing. The grown ups also seemed to enjoy themselves. Harriet and Felix kept the Intermediates busy and on task. Edward was hiking out and showing them all how to do it.
The Social Sailing started on Saturday night. Louise and I enjoyed an hour in some fantastic evening sunshine. We both gave our boats an airing and realised we had remembered some of what the team had taught us. I will try and be there every Saturday at 4 pm for a 5pm out on the water. Check the facebook posts beforehand just in case I have had to cancel.
Today was the Laser Open Meeting and what a fantastic day.  We had a great team in the race box, in the kitchen and in the clubhouse. It was a pleasure to spend the day with everyone and out on the water. Well done Luke for winning.
This week begins again on Tuesday evening with club night and training.
Wednesday is the Tarn User Forum held in the Activity Centre at 5.30. If anyone wants to attend with me to see what its all about you would be very welcome. I will be rushing in as close to 5.30 as I can make it.
Saturday is the Open Day. It would be great to see as many members as we can and hoping the place will have a real buzz about it. John, Paul and Jackie have offered to take the general public out for a quick go round the tarn, members are encouraged to drop in for a cup of coffee and a catch up and if you want to use the mower round your boat space I'd be happy to plug it in for you!
Tim is running a beginners session and Andrew is running a training session. Please check the yscwebsite/webcollect/eventbright for details.

A reminder that the YSC 90th birthday celebrations are planned for the July 7th and 8th - Commodores Weekend. Any suggestions for suitable ways to celebrate would be welcome. There will be activities on both days  and an opportunity to eat together on the Saturday night before the midnight race.  Lets hope the weather holds fair. More details to follow. If anyone could offer some help in the kitchen on the Sunday Gren and Cathy would be really grateful.
See you out on the water
