Market Bosworth IOM MDCS round 1 EVENT CANCELLATION.
Fao All Entrants,
I am sorry to have to inform you all but the above event scheduled for this Sunday (1st April 2012) has been CANCELLED due to circumstances beyond the race teams control.
In discussion with the park management this morning to check on parking and access to the water it appears that not only is there a duathlon going on which we could have coped with, but there is also a dinghy sailing event double booked with us. (Left hands and right hands).
Plainly their sailing would cause massive disruption to our event and so in consultation with Laurie (aro) we have reluctantly decided to call the race off as we could not hold a race to the standard expected and not wishing those travelling to turn up only to be disappointed.
We appreciate your support for this event in the past and will invite you back when we get a rescheduled date.

Clive & Jenny Hand – Swimathon Marie Curie Cancer

Clive & Jenny Hand – Swimathon Marie Curie Cancer

Posted on March 16, 2012 by pajsh

Those who have seen Clive Hand sailing sailing at various events around the country may be interested in the following words from Tony Edwards.


Many of you will have seen Clive Hand who suffers from SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) and competes at the lakeside from his wheelchair.  No longer able to sail full size boats, Clive has taken to radio sailing enthusiastically.  He enjoys both the ability to compete including at the IOM Nationals last year and values the discussion and banter available on the forum and website via his computer.

Clive is a member of the Rotherham Club and those that have seen him quickly realise the remarkable help provided by his wife Jenny.  Not only has she assembled the boat, made up the rigs and fitted the radio gear, but she also rigs the boat at the water, sets the trim, launches and retrieves the boat and Clive.  She also has a busy and responsible working life and as a side line built a lot of their house too.

Twelve years ago Jenny was diagnosed with breast cancer which she overcame, but suffered a recurrence this last winter.  Her treatment including radio therapy, has just completed and she is now training to undertake a sponsored 2.5k swim in aid of Marie Currie Cancer Care.  It is part of the Swimathon fundraising weekend 28th and 29th April 2012.

After the Midlands IOM winter series event at Leicesteron 11th March, competitors raised a total of £80 towards Jenny’s sponsorship.  If any other radio sailors wish to help Jenny, any contributions however large or small would be greatly appreciated.  Donations can be made via the following link

Results for those who are looking are on the MYA website here:-

Often tricky conditions of wind & waves testing skippers and race crew alike, in the end some good racing throughout the fleet at and excellent venue.

Hopefully the forecast will be kind tomorrow.
