A Big Set Back for the CBYA Dinghies!!

Categories:

We are very sad to report that we have been ‘broken into’ at El Portet, and our outboard motor has been stolen. In addition the aft locker on the new “Flying Fish” dinghy has had its lid torn off, and our life jackets which were stowed in there have also been taken! They also stole the Flying Fish trailer wheels, and its mainsheet. We are obviously being targeted because they have now also stolen our old rubber dinghy safety boat, as well as the rubber dinghy and cover which was chained up close to our storage box!

Louise and Wally took to the water on our free-of-charge Dinghy Day on Friday 17th February 2017.

Around twenty CBYA members met at Paradise Beach at El Portet, Moraira, to join in the fun. The winds were light, but ideal for those who had either never been out in a dinghy before, or who had not sailed in one for a long time.

Meet the Dinghies Day

Sunday June 12th saw 20 of our members meet up on El Portet beach in Moraira, to ‘Meet Louise and Wally’, our 2 donated dinghies. Wally is a 420 and Louise, (we think) is a GP14.

There is a secure box on site, where the ropes, rigging tackle, life jackets etc are kept. All hands helped rig the boats, then in crews of 3, with very light airs there were several successful trial sails. The boats were de-rigged about 1pm and we all retired to the nearby restaurant for ‘Refreshments’ and a great ‘Paella’ lunch. A good day was had by all, hopefully to be repeated.

The dinghies are available for members to use, but they must be with an experienced dinghy skipper. How this can be done and further details will be posted shortly.

Before taking to the water it is good advice to always check the weather – wind – sea state before going out.
