Updated Racing Results

Winter series

Fischer, Carver, Skinner, Dye
Not a John Le Carré novel but the story of today at Aldenham.

The Winter handicap series concluded today (1st March) after seventeen races on another blustery, gusty day.

Steve Fischer (Lsr) won with 13.5 points, closely followed by Colin Carver (Lsr) on 15 and Dan Skinner (RS300) on 18.6. Next week there is no racing but all members are encouraged to come to the Club at 9am for the bi-annual working party to help spruce up the Clubhouse and facilities for the new season. Spring Series 1 fleet racing starts on Sunday 15th March.

While racing was progressing, other members were acting on the Management Committee's decision to apply a non-toxic food dye to the reservoir water in an effort to reduce or eliminate the invasive Canadian pond-weed that can adversely affect our sailing. About 50kg of blue dye sachets were placed in the water to disperse over time and block parts of the light spectrum, restricting weed growth. A more detailed description is available here. Should members receive questions or complaints from the public, please reassure them that there is no danger to animals, birds or fish and direct them to our website.
