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 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.

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.

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.

We have three boats racing under the PNYC burgee – Black Dog, Rebecca of Helford and JunoBlack Dog came first in the IRC Class 1at the Dartmouth Royal Regatta last weekend – see this link for results: dartmouthsailingweek.com/single/latest-results

The Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust are running a full programme of courses throughout the summer. Our three kids have all gone through the various RYA and Power Boat courses and they are brilliant. The kids seem to have a great time, whatever the weather, and the parents get time off !!!

Apologies for this late up-date but we are pleased to announce that PNYC’s Juno won the first COGS Offshore race of the year to Roscoff with PNYC’s Black Dog in third place.  The 100 mile Ancasta Roscoff Night Race took place on Friday 5th May with light breezes.  We are setting up a PNYC Racing Page shortly and will have more extensive reports and pictures.

Last year Black Dog registered under PNYC and had a cracking season. We are delighted to announce that two further boats are registering under the Club and are intending to take part in The COGS this year (Cornwall Offshore Group Series). We have Juno, a J109 with Johnny Walker and his crew. And Rebecca of Helford, a Rustler 42 with Charles Richardson, Peter Shepherd and their crew of “senior” sailors. Black Dog and Juno came 1st and 2nd last year in the COGS Series.  We will create a racing page on the website shortly and will follow their progress over the season. The Roscoff Race, sponsored by Ancasta, is on 4th of May with Black Dog and Juno taking part.  Good luck to you all and thank you for flying under the PNYC burgee.
