August Bank Holiday Monday

August bank holiday, Monday 30th August 2021, sees some light hearted racing, with room for all. Its looking fairly warm with a light to moderate breeze (10-12 mph).

The First Race not before 11am is the David Stevens Memorial race, we will be collecting donations for his chosen charity, and you can donate on line through the club membership account, Ross will separate the ones marked David Stevens memorial or similar.

The race will be handicap with a slow and fast start, junior and windsurfers, the handicap split will be decided on the day please sign on by 10.30 near race office for the race officer to gauge numbers.

The afternoon will a Team Medley relay race. Starting after 1.15pm the teams will be

1 Junior single hander
1 Junior double hander
1 Adult single hander
1 Adult double hander

The course will be short and hopefully outside the clubhouse for spectators. The teams may be amended depending on entries, but the idea will be a lap then hand over the batten (plastic milk bottle) for next boat, you can choose who goes when (but each boat must go). The ‘rules’ will be subject to amendment so please keep an eye out. The without a team we can put in a team.

Prizes will be decided by the Vice Commodore, and may be throughout the fleet so enjoy the sailing / racing and don’t worry who you are with, there may still be a prize ! (in other words the obvious high flyers may find they don’t get a prize if they try and form a super team).

Sheila Stevens will be giving out prizes at around 3.15pm.

Pauline is down with breakfast cobs and lunch, the bar will be open.
