The Sailing Committee has updated this years Race Programme in an effort to recover many of those events lost during lock down.
The revised race schedule can be found on the Fixture List page with changes highlighted in Red along with SI Amendment Nr 5.
Notably for your diaries the Club’s Annual Regatta is to be held over the weekend 14th-16th August
The Dutyman system has also been populated to reflect the updated programme. Many of you will have received Duty notifications by email and the Sailing Committee urges members to accept or swap duties as soon as possible by logging into the system and action accordingly.
In the meantime Happy Sailing.
This Sunday the club is running a combined Commodore’s / Double Handed & Day Boat Regatta. Warning Signal of the first race is 10:55hrs (see Fixture list page for the Updated Sailing Instructions).
Entries should be made as per usual through the club’s web collect system. The weather forecast is still looking good and we are hoping to see a strong turnout for the club’s first Regatta of the year so please arrive in plenty of time. Sailors briefing will be held at 10:15hrs.
Dear Sailors and Friends,
The club is organizing an assisted sail around this Friday to Gorey, where sailors should be rigging at 5pm for a 6pm start.
The sail around will be controlled by our safety boats. Sailors should follow the instructions to hold until everyone is ready to sail. This will be a low tide sail around to Gorey and sailors should follow the course due to the unexposed rocks just under the water especially on the approach to Gorey Castle.
Parents of young children should ensure that their sailor has all of the safety equipment required by their class of boat, as well as water and sunscreen. If unsure about their abilities, check in with the safety crew, and if in any doubt of the conditions and your sailor’s experience please do not hesitate to go by road.
Trolleys should remain the responsibility of the sailor or their family, some assistance may be available by negotiation between Sailors and families driving by road.
Boats arriving at Gorey should have their trailer delivered to the low tide mark, so that they can pull their own boat up to the seawall and leave there neatly for the weekend.
Please look at the club notice board outside the club or contact the safety crews for updates on the day.
