It was a busy week for Tenby Sailing Club with dinghy races taking place, however, the cruiser races were cancelled.

Exceptional talent was on display, particularly during the midweek series on Tuesday, April 30 where teenagers showed their prowess, beating the older participants.

Young sailor, Nina Marsh, clinched the first position, followed closely by Amelia Nuttall and Jon Nuttall in the second and third places respectively.

Saturday, May 4, saw the South Beach Challenge Cup take place, where duo, Dave Griffiths and Maurice Clark, sailing boat, Carpé Diem, emerged victorious.

They narrowly defeated Peter Rose and Igor Otahal on a tie-break.

Third place was secured by Dyfan Williams on his first outing of the season.

Unfortunately, the wind caused the third race to be cancelled, petering out by the end of the second race.

The club has shifted the upcoming Saturday's racing to Sunday, May 12 at 3pm due to the Carten.

On the cruiser racing front, the races planned on May 4 had to be shelved due to unsuitable light air conditions.

The club remains hopeful for better weather next Sunday for the races to kick-off at 9am.

In junior training updates, last Wednesday’s evening sail training went well despite fluctuating wind conditions.

The session ended with a short but productive beach session providing boat handling basics to new students.

13 young sailors took to the waters, two of them experiencing dinghy sailing for the first time.

In off-the-water news, the clubhouse is set to host the final quiz of the current series on May 11 at 8pm and a Safety Fleet Training Day on May 18 to educate members about waterborne activities.
