Our winter series racing starts on the Saturday 5th October and continues every Saturday until the end of the year. There will be no safety cover or racing on Sundays. The schedule is as follows:
11.00 Solo Class
11.05 General Handicap
12.45 General Handicap
14.00 Personal Handicap Pursuit
From January till end of March we will be swapping days so that we have racing and safety cover on Sundays only.
Note that on days when there is no safety cover over the winter members may still sail so long as they have someone else in attendance who could effect a rescue if needed.
Please be reminded that our club rules state that from November till end of March either a wetsuit or drysuit must be worn as the water temperature becomes rather more refreshing.
Attention all Comet sailors!
Littleton will be hosting our annual Comet Open Meeting on Sunday the 8th September. This is a chance to come and sail against other Comets visiting for the day. There will be 4 races with 3 to count. The £12 entry fee includes a prizegiving tea after sailing. If you fancy your chances but don’t own a Comet then the club has two for hire to members. To hire a Comet go to Boat Hire and follow the instructions.
From a fairly lively wind with a blustery shower in the late afternoon, the wind settled down to near perfect for our annual Moonlight Race, held on the 31st August. After an early BBQ supper competitors added the final touches to their boat lights and decorations and took to the water as the sun went down.
Race Officer Tim Hore and his team set a triangular course with lit marks to aid navigation. The wind held well during the race giving sailors a decent sail and spectators a great view from the clubhouse balcony.
Congratulations to Jon Jowett who was the overall winner and to the Lemmon family who won the best lit boat prize in their Mirror dinghy.

20 boats took part in our Laser Open Meeting held on Saturday 13th April. This event was part of the Laser Thames Area Traveller Series.
The event coincided with a cold snap in the Spring weather with a shifty easterly wind which picked up as the day went on, to reach 16mph gusting 26mph at its peak.
Congratulations to the overall winner of the event, Sammy Isaacs-Johnson. Demonstrating a consistently solid performance throughout the day, Sammy won with 2 race wins plus a 2nd place to count. He discarded a 3rd place in race 2, which was won on handicap by Edward Brown, one of only two Laser Radials competing.
2nd overall with one race win was Gary Bullock, whilst 3rd overall and 1st Littleton boat was Mike Bean.
