This Sunday we have the Squadron Sunday and Napier Cup events, this is a great way to get involved in a casual and fun day on the water and see how the Juniors go in a bigger boat. Show your support by either joining the racing and/or the lunch after. To race please enter using the ENTRY link and select Race Entry and Squadron Sunday.
H Mark: Please remember that this is currently set to the south of the start line. As always this mark does not form part of the start line and should not be used as such. It is there to mark the shallow area. Boats need to stay to the West of this mark while starting and finishing. We are looking at obtaining an extra mark that will be laid to the North and will advise if/when this might happen. Please remember that when finishing from the North you will have crossed the line before getting to H. We advise that even if you have finished that you stay to the West of H for safety.
Incidents: Any incident that occurs (be it on or off the water) must have an incident report form completed and returned to the office via email. These reports are not there to get people into trouble but to help document issues and help us keep a safe club environment. The form can be found on the RMYS website or collected from the office.

The week that was:
Twilight Sprint Series: Wednesday 17th March
The last race of twilight had 34 boats which was again great numbers. The boats were set a challenging course and due to the breeze dropping out some boats just did not quite make it.
Race & Series Winner: Liberator Australis Andrew English
Measurement Cup: Saturday 20th March
Only a small fleet of 9 boats took to the water. 2 short races were run under the RYCV. The RMYS fleet were again 1/2 the overall fleet and many had good results over all.
Juniors Quest Fleet
A cold and breezy day greeted the juniors but this did not dampen their spirits. 3 boats took to the water staying inside the swing mooring area for protection where race tactics were practiced and smiles were the order of the day. Then on shore for a sausage sandwich to warm up while they brief the day.
Next training session Sunday 21st 0830.
Volunteers: help is still needed.
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. It’s fun rewarding and not that difficult. Put your hand up to do some time 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 watchful eye of some very qualified and experienced volunteers and RO’s so you will be in great hands. So it does not matter what membership category you hold, be it social, Sailing, Senior or junior join in.
Any questions please email Colin on firstname.lastname@example.org
