After a very long winter our sailing season has finally arrived. This Wednesday 11th April sees the practice race for the cruiser fleets and next week 18th April (pontoon permitting) see’s Race 1 of the spring series for all fleets.
Please note we have changed the Keelboat Course Card quite a bit so please download it from the website before Wednesday. (Remember the clanger trophy needs a home).
We have also made some changes to help with the smooth running of the club but we will need your support in helping us achieve this.
We have introduced a Safety boat roster to help the racebox team and to try and ensure that everyone who races gets as much racing as possible. We have tried to include as many people as possible on the roster but I am sure that some of the dates you have been assigned will clash with personal commitments. With this in mind if you cannot cover your shift please swap with someone else and let Karen Hamilton know. If you cannot find anyone to swap with then please give us as much notice as possible by contacting Karen and letting her know.
For those sailors that are covering their shift you will receive average points for the race calculated over the series.
We have also put together a rota which covers Friday nights activities like Galley duty , lockup, launching / recovery of Ribs etc. We have tried to include as many as possible on the rota. However if you feel you have been overlooked or would like to help out in some way please contact Fiona .
Remember it’s your club so thank you for supporting your club and I look forward to seeing you on the water.
