Cadet Update - 02 October 2014

Dear Cadet and Cadet Parents,

Last Weekend (27th September) - Autumn Trophy Race Day (2 of 2)

Last weekend was another light wind day so much so that we cancelled the sailing and with 16 cadets present we changed the lines on all the club boats and tidied up the cadet area.

Many thanks to those parents that helped out with the cadet boats and also with the grass cutting - it made light work of all the tasks that had to be done.

In order to complete the series, I will run the Autumn Trophy Race 2 on Sat 11th October so please pair up as before - see last week's newsletter for the pairings.

This Weekend (4th October)

The weather this Saturday is for good winds 12 - 22 mph with early morning showers giving way to sunshine.


This weekend the Solo Open is taking place and Tony Goodrich has kindly offered to run the cadet section. The Galley will be run by main club and the training will be carried out by Sophie Goodrich and will have to coordinate with the Solo Open Race Officer.

Please note the earlier start time of 09.00am when Sophie will brief her plan.

Please remember that this is a prerequesite for the DI and Race Coach qualifications. The cost to members is only £95  and there are currently only 3 people booked on it so plenty of space available.

A Cadet table top sale is to be held on Sat 11th Oct. I suggest a selling fee of 10% with a max £5 per family selling items payable to the Cadet Squadron on the day. I will open this up to Main Club as well and all the monies raised from the entry fees will go to the Cadet Squadron fund. Thank you to Ruth Folkard who will be organising and managing this on the day. Please bring along your sailing related clothing/equipment clearly labelled with your surname and price.

SCSC Cadet AGM - 25th October

We need to start to think about the various roles we have and how to fill them. At the moment I am not going to stand again as the Cadet Captain - the key ones are Race Coaches and Race Officers. I am happy to discuss what these roles involve and the forum page is here.

End of Year Prize Giving/Tudor Feast - 29th November

A fantastic end to the sailing year with lots of trophies for Cadets to be awarded - the event will be at the club so please book early otherwise you will miss out because of limited space will mean tickets will be limited.

Pam has offered free child tickets for those Cadets that help out with serving the adults on the night - dressing up is optional. Any Cadet that attends the end of year prize giving will have a free lucky dip prize.

Tickets cost £20 per adult (child TBA) and must be booked up to one week in advance from Pam Weeks. or 01793 762962
