Racing

The Club is very proud to have a number of local boats competing under the PNYC burgee.  We have three local boats competing both in Cornwall and in National races.

A POSSIBLE PNYC SAILING RACE

We have been approached by a relatively new member, Rob Templeton, to stage a fun sailing race at PNYC and we would love to do it if there is enough interest.  The idea would be a handicapped race to Black Rock and back from a start line just off Durgan (tbc) on Saturday 2nd October with a start time of 1pm. Afterwards we would offer a team dinner and drinks at the Club along with prize giving. If you would like to take part – either on your boat or as a possible crew for another boat or to help run the race (or you would just like to come to the dinner and prize giving) – then please drop me a line at admin@pnyc.co.uk .  If there is enough interest we’ll come back to you with more details.  It would be so great to stage a PNYC race and we are indebted to Rob for offering his services. We miss Peter Goad’s enthusiasm and skill but I am sure that he would encourage all those that can to take part from his home in NZ.

BLACK DOG DOES IT AGAIN FOR PNYC !

Black Dog has won the RORC IRC National Championships – again.  So that’s two national wins for this PNYC registered boat – 2019 and 2021.  The team has been racing for 11 years and this year Stuart Sawyer’s team was joined by double Olympic Silver Medallist, Nick Rogers.  

“We are delighted” said Stuart. “We are surprised to win as we haven’t been racing much but we have been training and our crew work is slick…. we were confident with ourselves but we didn’t know how we would measure up against the top IRC boats.”

Well, they beat them!  Congratulations to all the team members and The Club would like to stand them some beers.

PNYC RACING

Black Dog

Black Dog, flying under the PNYC burgee, took first place in the IRC South West Championships in Dartmouth at the start of this month and also won the 1st Overall IRC 1 at the Royal Dartmouth Regatta, thereby ending the season in some style. Congratulations to all who sailed on her throughout the season.

PNYC RACING

Rebecca of Helford took part against five other boats in the annual Currie and Brown Cup organised by St Mawes Sailing Club.  After three laps of the course Rebecca was leading and probably would have gone on to win.  Unfortunately Rebecca and four other boats all misread their sailing instructions and were disqualified, leaving Ruby, the only boat not disqualified, to win the race.  But a good time was had by all.
