We are fast approaching the start of the 2018 summer season and there will be lots going on. March 25th marks the start of British Summer Time and here are some more key dates:
Wednesday 4th April – Evening Racing begins at 6.30pm.
Sunday 1st April – Get Racing starts, and continues on the first Sunday of each month.
Friday 13th April – Friday Improvers, Owen’s Friday Fun Club and Youth & Junior groups all begin with a BBQ.
Monday 16th April – Women on Water sessions start
This year’s training will be a bit different to previous years. Rather than being a straight run through the OOD manual, it will focus on the practical issues of setting a course (with everyones group involved in setting a number of courses for particular conditions) and it will also incorporate a participative look at the racing rules
This year we are running two groups on Friday evenings. There will be Race Training like last year, plus our new group ‘Owen’s Fun Club’ for children who want to improve their sailing skills through fun activities but don’t want to race.
Our bank holiday Pursuit Races start again on Easter Monday (2nd April) with the RNLI Lifeboat Pursuit. They are all open to non-members (£10 entry fee – still free to Club members). All the details are in the new Club Racing Sailing Instructions which is on the website.
