For those trying to join the racing last night it was a bit of a struggle. I could communicate with those on Whatsapp so we captured a few but not everyone. I also posted the password as bartley1 in the race title and will do this again if there are issues another time.
I have tested the custom race last night and this morning and it all seems to be running smoothly with the usual password so we will continue to use bartley as usual from tonight.
If there are issues again I will use bartley1 and post on whatsapp and in the race name.
I think the issue arose because they were upgrading the VR app to include Aukland and remove an issue where race scores showed 1st place twice on the leader board. I logged the first race but then it rebooted and the custom race was gone and it wouldn't accept the password. Hopefully this is a one-off and we will be back to normal tonight.
The competition is hotting up (as are the race tactics!). There is feedback and training via Zoom from the 'Master' Bakerboy. Here are the standings up to race 8. Still plenty of time to change the scores - you have to be in it to win it so see you at 6.30pm tonight for more action.
Normally we would be into the Tuesday evening series now. There is nothing quite like the dash from work, the hurried rigging, then forgetting the trials of daily life with an hour sailing with friends followed by a catch up in the club house. The perfect tonic.
K2O was scheduled to start at the weekend introducing the next generation to the enjoyment and benefits of sailing as a sport. Lets hope we can still get some training in this year. In the meantime here are the cheerful sails usually seen on Saturday mornings in the summer.
Today we have Garry ready to go full stretch to level off the Supernova.
A big thank you to Newman University Security who informed us of further fly tipping earlier in the week. This time they got really good CCTV footage of the culprit who happened to be the same person as previously and will give the police much more to go on. They also raised it with Birmingham City Council who have cleared the mess away so the club is back to normal again. We are very grateful for the support from Newman University on this matter and the assistance they have given to the club and the Police and council.
