Message from Boating Coordinator 23rd February 2021

 


IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL SKIPPERS:
It has been brought to our attention that an error in the Top Yacht system has occurred between the Dick Lean (28/11) and Doc Bennell (9/12) races that affected the updating of the PHS handicaps. Unfortunately this has meant there is a flow on effect to all the races in the Summer Weekend series. We are in the process of rectify this and then we will run all the races. The update results will be posted as soon as this has been done and an announcement to members will be sent out once they are up on the website. We would like to thank Peter (PJ )Davison for spotting this issue and apologize to all members for any inconvenience caused.

Safety Beach Weekend: Another great weekend was had by 17 of our usual suspects. With a race down and back in a mix of winds. Both days had very slow starts with the wind building so the late finish that we thought might happen did not happen… smiles all round . A special thanks goes out to Byron Jackson and Rob Ellis who played the role of support boats. Also to Peter Chapman, Roger Byrne, Keith Chatto Amanda Wakeman, Terry Parker and Andrew Fambiatos who did the tower , when you see these folks next please than them.

Volunteers: help is still need 
We have a core group that do the heavy lifting. A successful club relies heavily on its members to help out. This is call out for more of you to take up the challenge of running races. Its fun rewarding and not that difficult. Put your hand up to do sometime in the tower or on the water and learn the ropes with the aim of getting your club Race Officer qualification. You will be under the watch eye of some very qualified and experienced volunteers and RO’s so you will be in great hand . So it does not matter water membership category you hold be it social, Sailing, Senior or junior join in

Any question please email Colin on boating@rmys.com.au
