REMEMBER...GUNFLEET 2014 CADET WEEK...IT'S BRILL...REMEMBER...GUNF
Gunfleet Cadets did us proud at Clacton Sailing Club's Regatta on Sunday 6 July. The young members took a Laser, Hobie 405, two Topazes and two Toppers up to Holland Haven to join in the fun....and came back with the Trophies.
This Saturday's SOS is a Training Session and we will be having our Sailing Secretary Paul Davis teaching you to get the best from your boat with the effect of the tides. How to get the tide to help you when its going your way, and how to minimise the negative impact of the tide when you are fighting it. It has been noticeable that the Cadets and Otters are getting stronger sailors all the time and you only have to look at the race results to see how you are starting to dominate the higher positions.
Last Saturday 8 March Gunfleet’s Cadets and Otters got together down the Clubhouse to have an afternoon of awesome fun ‘n’ games. Four Teams competed in a variety of games starting with getting your boat across the line, pulling it along by rolling up a ball of string on a rod. There then followed picking up a cardboard box off the floor with your mouth whilst not using your hand to help or balance you. In each round the box got shorter until, in the end, it was just the base left. Some absolutely amazing agility saw Abigail and Ted steal the show as they performed some real contortions
Last Saturday afternoon 8 February the Clubhouse was buzzing when 23 Cadets and Otters met-up down the Gunfleet for their first social of 2014. The event started with a reminder of the 2013 Cadet Week as some great action shots were projected onto the big screen. The sparkling water, sunshine and ideal sailing breeze displayed contrasted with the weather outside the Clubhouse that afternoon - winds gusting up to Force 11 and grey murky seas crashing wildly onto the foreshore. Popcorn and sausage rolls were consumed and then the entertainment took off.
Forget the strong winds and winter blues - come on all Cadets and Otters and get on down to your Club this Saturday 8 February for a Grrrrreat Social. We're going to remind ourselves of the fantastic time we had sailing in 2013 at the Cadet Week - if you were there you will see yourself on the big screen! Lots of other fun entertainment, a chance to catch-up with mates, and there are some free sausage rolls flying around. Oh yes, bring some popcorn to eat'n'share.
It starts at 3:00 p.m. and finishes at 5:00 p.m.
