The terns are back! Two arrived in the bay today, usually they will stay for a few weeks, then come back again in July. Keep your eyes open for them fishing for sand eels at the Cosy Nook end of the bay
Whether the weather be cold or whether the weather be hot, we’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not.
So last week we had summer in March, now it is actually snowing outside. Once again the IOM has gone from winter to a week of summer and back to winter again!
Today has been a great day, a little chilly, but still enjoyable for our first Youth Sailing Week of the season. It’s a Race Training course so five essentials and tacking have been the order of the day.
Looking a bit breezy and even chillier tomorrow 🙁 Still…. we’ll make the best of it
Two hours spent picking up all of Port Erin’s litter that finds its way to our boat park during the winter. A record of six black sacks full this year! Another wonderful couple of hours spent in the sunshine getting the boats ready for the season. Woohoo! One week to go….
VHF Radio course on 31st March – this is the last one before the summer season. There are a couple of places still available so please get in touch asap if you want to do this course before the season starts…. http://www.7thwave-iom.com/vhf-short-range-certificate/
Have you entered the RS Tera Isle of Man Open yet? The Isle of Man Yacht Club will host an Open Meeting for junior sailors from 5th -7th May 2012. This will be a great opportunity for young sailors to compete against the top Manx juniors and hopefully some sailors from the UK Tera fleet too. Racing will take place in Bay ny Carrickey, there will be plenty of safety boats and assistance for new-comers. The Manx Youth Sailing Squad are looking to recruit up to three new members this season, so if you are interesting in being part of this team you need to compete at this regatta.
All details, Notice of race and Entry Form are on the IOMYC website at www.iomyc.com . If you are a IOMYC member and would like to use a club boat then contact Wendy Hill to arrange. If you are not a Club member, but would like to have a go please contact Jen at 7th Wave and we’ll do our best to find you a boat 🙂
It is hoped that competitors will travel again from the UK to join us so if any families can offer accommodation please let Brian Partington know.
The Manx Sailing and Cruising Club are hosting the 57th Round the Island yacht race on Sunday 6th May, start time 10.30am.
