SSSC Launch ‘The Stig’

Last Sunday the South Staffs Youth and Junior team launched their eagerly awaited new club boat, a Mirror dinghy!  Before the launch the all important name was announced as “THE STIG” in honour of the yearly visitor who was first to set sail in it (albeit after capsizing on the jetty)!

Upon it’s launch, the Youth and Junior Team expressed their thanks to everyone involved.

We would like to express thanks to the club committees for their continued support in funding this new Y&J boat and particularly to Club Bosun Steve and his team, for the efforts in fitting the mirror out from bare hull to fully rigged and ready to sail.

THE STIG will also be kitted out with a spinnaker in the coming weeks and promises to be a fantastic addition to a growing Youth and Junior fleet of boats, and will be used to help train juniors of all ages from first sessions on the water, to competitive racing.
