Hot Turkey Race – Christmas Day 2015

It’s that time of year again… carols, tinsel and the PSC Christmas Day Hot Turkey Race. The race is a great way to blow away the cobwebs and develop an appetite for the onslaught of calories that is known as Christmas lunch. Racing starts at 10:25am with an Xmas tree hoisted up the PSC flagpole. You don’t get that with the America’s Cup do you?

It’s not a long course (last year’s fastest dinghy got round in under 32 minutes). So you’ll be home in time to put the sprouts on and carve the turkey before the Queen’s speech. The PSC bar will be open for a celebratory glass of mulled wine and mince pie.

Entry forms, course map, sailing instructions and notice of race are on the racing pages of this website. All entry fees (£3 per crew member) are donated to GAFIRS (Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service).

Last year we had fantastic bright and breezy weather. The racing fleet was 14 boats strong, ranging from a 12 foot Laser dinghy to a 54 foot ocean racing cruiser. Let’s get more boats on the water this Christmas. If you only do one race a year, make it this one.

 

Team PSC visits AWCS in Gothenburg

 

A small team of PSC members ventured to Gothenburg at the end of August to support Ben Ainslie Racing in the second leg of the Americas’ Cup World Series. There was lots of flag-waving, eating and drinking and stowing aboard one of the official vessels (with the Race Director and Chief of Police!) to watch the action.

America's Cup World Series - Team Oracle visit PSC

 

On the weekend of the ACWS in Portsmouth the  Commodore of the Golden Gate Yacht Club, Norbert Bajurin and Jim Reuben, a committee member, were passing Portsmouth Sailing Club on the Thursday evening. Seeing a likely watering hole they entered, only to be met by a noisy group of Victory sailors.  They thoroughly enjoyed the warm welcome and hospitality shown by Peter Guy, our Commodore, who was rapidly summoned to the Club to meet his opposite number and to present Norbert with a PSC burgee.
