Spring has sprung, the clocks have been changed and next week is Easter........ that must mean that the moment we have all been waiting for with bated breath has finally arrived, yes it’s the beginning of the Tuesday Night Laser & Solo Series. With lots of prizes up for grabs the handicap and fleet racing starts at
Also if anyone else wants to come down sailing feel free to join in
This year we are delighted to welcome some new members, they have been practising like crazy over the winter months, so to all you fair weather summertime sailors who have managed to punch well above your weight over the last few years on the Tuesday night series, be warned that the competition has stepped up a notch!
It will be great to see you all back again, so don’t forget, 7PM start this Tuesday right through to 5th Sept which will be the bottle race and prize giving evening.
You may be aware of our handicap system, where we run one scratch race per Tues nights (21 in the series) and extrapolate the personal handicap race results by allocating personal handicap times to allow each sailor. This allows a fair chance of anyone winning the handicap race that night. Each week it recalculates a revised PYN to challenge you for the following week.
New members and visitors are given provisional handicaps which are allocated by the executive committee (bribes are accepted in the bar later!!)
With over 45+ Lasers on our boat park it would be great if we can’t get at least half of you on the water at any given time, not to mention those unfortunates that want to join in the Laser fun but have to beg, borrow and steal a sea worthy craft.
So remember we have spare Lasers for you to use so just ask John Ling and we shall get you sorted.
On the Solo side, Dave Badger will be taking over the over the captaincy of the Solo fleet captain from Nick Thornton during the summer and I am sure you will continue to support him.
Good luck Dave.
See you on the water.
