Paphos International Sailing Cub – January 2024

The good weather continued into the month which provided excellent sailing at Agios Georgios for members of Paphos International Sailing Club (PISC). Rear Commodore (Sailing), John Huggett, said that the sailing every Thursday and Saturday was very well attended. There were two regular sailing competitions: the quarterly competition which is ongoing and the monthly competition. The Monthly Mug sailing competition was won by Jim McLellan & Annette Garcia, sailing Jim’s Flying Fifteen named Blondie: Robin Marsh and Barbara Jones in Robin’s Kestrel named Nimrod, are leading in the Autumn Series.

At the end of the month Commodore Mick Dent congratulated all the members of the Training Team for their sterling work, conducting training courses for members, many of whom are new young members.

Lara Mitchell, our Social Secretary, and Kay Melville, organised several social events. Members and their guests met regularly at the Clubhouse every Tuesday evening and Friday lunchtime. The Christmas Jumper lunch was great fun, as were the challenging quizzes. At our Christmas Lunch the ladies of B Sharp Choir performed Christmas Carols for members to sing along to in the clubhouse that was beautifully decorated: we even had a log fire.

PISC is a very active sailing club which offers all types of sailing., including sail training (PISC is an accredited member of the CYSAF — Cyprus Sailing Federation). PISC has trained over twenty people to sail this year alone and bookings are now being taken for Spring / Summers Courses.
