ANNOUNCEMENTS/REMINDERS

Wednesday Start Sheets: A combined race start sheet is now located in the online noticeboard for the RMYS Winter season. Please remember this is NOT finalized until 10:30 am on the day of the race so please check before leaving the dock. It can be accessed via the MemberPoint app under Racing or via rmys.com.au

Tower Communications: Please remember that after the warning signal the tower team is busy so any communications should only be for emergencies or announcing retiring from the race.

Notice to Competitors: When a new NTC is posted to the website it will be announced via the Club News page on the website. They can be easily found on the home page so keep an eye out for them.

New Wednesday Prize: With only having 3 boats in the IRC division on Wednesday afternoon we will no longer be awarding prizes for that division, results will still be posted. Instead we will be awarding prizes for the top 3 best elapsed time in the AMS/IRC spinnaker fleet. We kindly thank James Lynch, Doctors of Northcote, for their continued sponsorship of this fleet.

Boat Duty Roster: This is online so please take a look and know when you are required to help out. You will need to provide a crew member to help with race management in the tower or on the water. If you can’t cover your date it’s up to you to find someone who can, this may mean swapping a date with another boat. Remember racing can only go ahead with the help from members.

Sail Pass: Guests of our members are always welcome but as with every sport there are costs involved in regular usage of a facility and actively participating. As such, to take part in a race, a Sail Pass will need to be purchased. The passes are for the benefit and safety of all sailors, so that we have emergency contact details for everyone out on the water. Also, all those sailing must be added to your crew sign on. Remember all of this is done via the MemberPoint app and full details of how to use the app are on our website.
