We very much regret to inform all members of the death of our esteemed member and great friend, Rachel Wallis.
Rachel was a stalwart of the club, both on the water and off. When she was not sailing with family and friends, she was often Officer of the Day, lending a vital and steadying hand to the sometimes chaotic to-and-fro of running a sailing race. She was kind and firm in equal measure and always gave her all. She will be missed.
May she rest in peace.
EDIT: From the family:

Last year Jess Cochrane placed second in the SCSC Opi Cahmpionship. Last week Jess took part in the International Topper Regatta Fleet Summer Championships 2015 in Weymouth. Jess placed 4th overall and was the highest ranking girl. Congratulations to Jess from her home-away-from-home Club!
Here’s Jess (and Charlotte) with thei Opi trophies last year:
We’re trying to chase down the official results sheet and event report. If you know where it is please let us know.
SCSC 2015 – No Ocean race – Wednesday August 12th, 2015 – Beautiful sunny day, but no wind.
In 2014, Tom Cochrane placed second in the South Cork Sailing Club Cadets Regatta. He was not with us in 2015 because he was at the Topper World Championships at Riva del Garda in Italy. With fourteen races and two discards, Tom’s point total was 90. This meant that he came tenth. In the world! A hearty congratulations from Tom’s home-away-from-home club.
A look at the results list shows us that Tom was definitely getting the hang of the location, with his highest placing coming in the very last race. Of the nine places above him in the final standings, five went to locals. Interestingly, a further two places went to sailors from the royal Cork Yacht Club.
Here is a page with a series of reports about the other races.
