New Format Fleet Championships – 12th March and 18th June

For 2017 the Sailing Committee has decided to try a new format for the Club Fleet Championships.  For all the fleets other than the Cats the Championship will be sailed over two Sundays which fit in the club calendar between the Club Sunday Series.  The dates are Sunday 12th March and Sunday 18th June.  During the first event we will have the prize-giving for the Winter Series and during the second the prizes for the Spring Series will be presented.

On both Sundays there are four races scheduled in the standard Sunday morning format (the race officer has a choice of five different courses).  There will probably be two races back to back in the morning then two further races in the afternoon, but the Race Officer may decide to make more of them back to back if the conditions warrant it.  There is quite a generous discard rate (4 out of 8 to count) so people who can’t make both Sunday’s or the afternoons stand some chance of winning.

There will be a briefing at 9.45 on both mornings.

The Notice of Race for this event has been published here.
