2018 Trophy Days So Far
The first trophy day of the year was our Annual Icicle Trophy event on 7 January. The day was a cold and somewhat breezy one resulting in a smaller number of entries than usual. With Simon Derham managing to clinch the title by winning the first 2 races in his Solo, it was only the hardiest that make it through to the very end of the day.
The Brass Monkey Trophy followed closely on 4 February. Again a chilly day reminding us of where the name name of the event originated, but this time with a little less wind, so attracting a good turnout. The leaders on the water enjoyed a day of close nip and tuck racing, though it was Malcolm Underwood in his Pico Sport following round who pipped everyone to the post on handicap in all 3 races.

Littleton member, Geoff Carveth, helmed his team to victory to take the title of 2017 SB20 World Champions. Geoff, who started out sailing as a junior at Littleton, now has no less than four SB20 World victories under his belt. Three other Littleton sailors also competed at this year's worlds. Stuart Thomson, who co-owns his SB20, made it to the gold fleet, and came 40th overall, and David Vialls and son Chris can count their first time crewing in an SB20 for a friend as invaluable experience.

Littleton Open Day2017 RYA Volunteer Awards
We are delighted to report that our Rear Commodore Facilities, Andy Bennett, has been selected from a large number of nominations received by the RYA Honours and Awards Panel to receive an RYA Community Award for Lifetime Commitment. There is an awards presentation and lunch being held later in the year at which Andy will be presented with the award.

Pursuit Race Start Procedure Changes
A new flip chart numbering system is being introduced for pursuit starts at Littleton from April. This will take away the necessity to synchronise your watch with the OD’s timer. View a video that explains how it works. Note that the flip-board shown in the video was a prototype which we are now in the process of improving for ease of use by ODs. The SI’s on the club website have also been updated.

SUPs now welcome!Stand Up Paddleboards Welcomed
Stand up paddleboarders are welcome to join the club and are able to use the water alongside our sailors and windsurfers. Paddleboarding is a great way to keep fit and particularly to build core strength and balance.
