The Autumn race format starting October 7th will continue the successful format run over the Summer with the following seasonal 'tweaks':

The Saturday Races will be pulled forward by 1/2 hr to reflect the daylight hours during Autumn / Winter.

The final race on Saturday will start as soon as possible after race 2 so that sailors do not get too cold between races as the temperature drops.

Race 1 Handicap including novice and juniors

10.50     10 minute warning

11.00     Fast fleet start

11.02     Slow fleet start

11.04     Junior / Novice Start

Race 2 Pursuit

12.35     10 minute warning

12.45     Mirror start

14.00     Finish

Race 3 Handicap (Timing to be determined by the OOD on the day to start as soon as possible after race 2)

Earliest timing:

14.05     10 minute warning

14.15     Fast fleet start

14.17     Slow fleet start

Sunday race times to remain the same as Summer Series.

I plan to conduct a few sessions to coach the novices and juniors before the first race on Saturday to help with starting, mark rounding, racing rules, trim and tactics. I will post on the blog the week before these take place so those who are interested can turn up a bit earlier to practice.

Hope to see as many of you as possible sailing over the autumn and winter....
