Juniors and dinghies @ the Lake – Sat. 29 Mch 1430hrss

Jonathan Waddington (Hon. Treasurer)

 Having been blown off last Saturday we’ll try again this. The wind is forecast to have moved to ESE so we should get some shelter from the shore.

Club racing this Sunday is at 0945 so why not sail both days?

Hope to see you Saturday

Regards

New Sailing Season Begins

Simon Moruzzi (Training Officer)

Sailing 1

Hi all, this Sunday sees the first races of the new season.  There will be a three weekend Spring series to get us back into the swing of things.  Better weather has been ordered and the first signs are just starting to appear. 

A full sailing program has been prepared and and is just awaiting confirmation of race duties and will be published on line and in the handbook.  If you have had an email from Olly Price about race duties there may still be time to pick a date before you are handed one by him so please let him know if you have’nt already.  If you missed the preview program you can find it attached here. SailngProgram2014V11A4

Following on from last year we have kept the format of repeating special events such as the Whombaff and the Round Hilbre.  However this year there is a twist, the remaining series races have been organised into morning “Launch and Lunch” and midday “Sail and Ale” series.  As the names suggest both will be followed by organised socials and we hope that you will all stay and join in the fun.  Where necessary the Bar and Club will stay open to facilitate.  ie you wont go home thirsty !

Also look out for the training column in the program, some link to Sunday racing and provide pre or post race briefing and some are separate on and off the water sessions.  Please contact our training officier James Douglas if you are interested in taking part.

Thats it for now lets look forward to a great season of sailing.

 

Learning and Development session this Sunday (9th March) – 13:00hrs. SAILING RULES. All members welcome

Jon Smith (Hon. Membership Secretary)

The sailing rules will be broken down into easy to understand groupings and then the most important ones explained/discussed.
For those who have previously attended a similar session it will be a useful refresher and will lead into a follow up session (date to be arranged) covering a few of the more complex rules & regulations.

 

PS – Fleet Captains – Please make your fleet members aware of this session.
