News from Colin

Cactus Cup Lunch : 23rd November.  REGISTRATION CLOSE WEDNESDAY 20TH 4pm

If you are planning on doing the race (and why would you not) then please also remember to register for the Mussels and Franks after. We need to know how many you have on you boat so I can allocate the correct number of vouchers. REGISTER HERE 

Sail Pass: . With the season getting warmer we are starting to get good numbers of people looking to sail. Please can you do your best to have a spot or two available on the day for new sailors. Please ensure your details are on the whiteboard especially contact number if you plan to go to your boat. The more boats we have with spots the more potential new crew members we can introduce to the club to help with filling your crew each race day. 

Pursuit Course Meeting: RO and interested parties meeting will be held 23rd at 0900. Please can all RO’s and main volunteers come to this quick meeting. Contact Colin at racing@rmys.com.au to confirm attendance . It will be held in Olympic Bar and last 30 mins . 

Pursuit Course 15: This has been reinstated after a correction of C(P) to C(S) was made. The website has been updated and I will continue to print the course list on the start sheet. 

S80 Regatta: RMYS are holding this event in Jan 2020 (10th – 12th) . We need a team of volunteers for this. We will have 3 boats on the water so need drivers, mark layers and general hands. Its a great regatta with close racing but can only go ahead with the help from club members. Please put your hand up to help even if its just one day . Contact Colin for more information and how to sign up. racing@rmys.com.au

RMYS Race Results in Review

Well at last we had a week were we are able to get all the sailing in. Wednesday night gave us a mixed bag of conditions and at the start of the day were not sure if we would go racing at all. A squall hit the start line but it was shorted lived and approx 15 knts of breeze brought the whole fleet home within the tome limit. 

The weekend saw the Lipton Cup regatta run by RYCV and what a great two day event it was. The weather held up and all the boats had great sailing and some good results. A special thank you from me to the on water volunteers that run one of the keel boat racing courses it went off without a hitch.
