Only a handful of people replied to my email about sailing this year. Even allowing for expected low responses, I think an attempt to lay on organised racing with a pre-booked duty team from 7th April will fail.

I propose therefore that we will offer ‘social’ sailing on Saturday mornings from 10 am starting 7th April (earlier if the weather improves). Several members have suggested this with an opportunity to learn from and perhaps sail with some of our more experienced members. Meeting with the juniors during their training on Saturday mornings might be good for us too. Hopefully this will be such a success that we would soon work out how to restart racing.

Perhaps around Wednesday of each week we could use Facebook to indicate who is l...

From Saturday October 7th the race start time will be changing. October Racing is on Saturday MORNINGS 10.30 for the start hooter. We’ve brought the start gun time forward to 10.30am, so you’ll need to leave the beach by 10. And, if like me it takes you 30 minutes to get ready, you’ll need to be at the Club by 9.30. So it will be just like junior sailing was during the summer. We’ll see how it goes but the aim is to get everyone back to the Club House by 1.00 so that the afternoon is available for a sociable lunch, chat, bimbling - or to take the wife shopping (whoops – sexist!), or maybe a snooze.  All this is for October 7th, 14th and 28th. (Not sure of October 21st because of the GP14 Open.) If you haven’t got a boat of you...
