Racing Report – Week ended 8th September 2019

News from the Race office

A big thank you and well done to those that took part this week. Our new season will be kicking off soon and we are doing the final tests to the online entry system and making sure it all works before we go live… we will let you know.  Also a big thank you from me to all of the members for welcoming me to the club and embracing the few changes I have implemented so far, please feel free to pop in and say hi as I’m still putting names and boats to faces… see you at the bar. 

Wednesday:  A 10- 15kt breeze for the boats meant it was a great day on the water. Although wet and cold. Not a long race just over an hour for the first boat to cross the line.

The first race of the Spring Series. With a Gale Warning in play it was an anxious wait. Other clubs cancelled but at 10.30 conditions were downgraded so racing was on. Our RO and team set course 13 and 6 boats had a great sail.  Let’s get the whole team out this week.
