Laser Open Meeting Results

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.

Littleton Awarded RYA British Youth Sailing Club Status

Littleton Sailing Club is delighted to announce that thanks to the efforts of our volunteers past and present, we have been awarded British Youth Sailing (BYS) Recognised Club status by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).

Littleton’s recognition was awarded at the RYA Dinghy Show, Alexandra Palace on Sunday 3rd March 2019.  It was received by Stephen Lemmon the 2019 leader for the Junior Sailing Group, and Andrew Selves our Youth Instructor.

To qualify for the recognition, the Club demonstrated that we met a series of
exacting standards, we run a regular race training programme within recognised BYS classes, youth sailors from the Club  participate in BYS Regional Junior Championships (among others) and we continue to deliver training using qualified RYA Coaches to RYA Recognised Training Centre Standards.

If you are interested in trying dinghy sailing, or perhaps have previously sailed and want to take it to the next level, see our Youth Sailing activities and opportunities.

For more information on the BYS programme, visit the RYA website.

New! – Personal Handicap Pursuit Racing

6th April sees the first of our personal handicap pursuit races. Handicaps and a guide for competitors will be placed on the desk in the foyer as soon as possible after the new PY numbers are released by the RYA. The boat class start numbers for the 14:00 Personal Handicap Pursuit race will differ from the numbers used for the Twilight pursuit because the race is a slightly different length and because the Twilight starts 15 minutes past the hour. To obtain your start time you take your boat class start time and add your new personal handicap to that number. That gives your start time in minutes. When the 5-4-1-0 race start sequence is completed, 00 will be displayed and the numbers will count up every minute. You start when your number is displayed and the hooter sounds. Note that a negative start time means that you will be starting during the start sequence (before the 00 is displayed). Personal handicaps will be adjusted every week, so you need to check your start time every race.

Racing should be very close and everyone should have a chance to win!

Double Award for Littleton

Littleton Sailing Club has been awarded the title of Spelthorne Sports Club of the Year! This annual award was presented to the Club by Spelthorne Council in recognition for outstanding activities in sports. The 2018 Spelthorne Sports Awards ceremony which took place on 9th October at Shepperton Studios, saw 10 awards given out in all.  In the past we have been successful in other categories but this is the first time the Club has won the overall award for best sports club.  This is very much a shared award and demonstrates how passionate we are as a group about our sailing and our club.

At the event, attended by a delegation of our committee members, we were treated to a speech from Debbie Flood, double Olympic silver medalist in rowing on the power of persistence, and how, by continuing with your aims along with commitment and dedication high levels can be achieved.

At the ceremony club member Jo Lloyd also won the award of Volunteer of the Year for her dedication to duty co-ordination, an award richly deserved. With 150 clubs in the borough, these awards are prestigious and along with the others won on previous occasions confirms that Littleton is a really active and great club to be part of.  Well done Team Littleton!
