Sadly, due to the weather, today’s 20Knot Squad match racing training will be postponed.

We will keep you posted on the new date.

For those of you with the experience, the prestigious Winter Warm Up Series will (as long as we can get in) still go ahead as normal, first start at 10.25.

Changes to Club Sailing Instructions

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

The Club Sunday Winter Series starts this weekend. Following discussions at the sailing committee the Sailing Instructions have changed and a new version is now available at


The main change to these are that the Laser and Fast Handicap fleets have been combined and they will both start at the start of the sequence with both race a triangle/sausage/triangle course. Their start will be indicated by the Numeral 1 flag previously used for the Lasers only.

A few other changes include: –

1. The PY value for the break between the number of laps in the Asymmetric fleet has been updated so that the 29er and 4000 only do 3 laps – Windward/Leeward.

2. The PY limit for the Fast Handicap is adjusted to include the Wayfarer and Laser Radial.

3. The 505 is recognised as part of the Asymmetric Fleet sailing Windward/Leeward courses.

The Sailing Committee would welcome feedback on these changes for their next meeting in mid-January. Some proposals that were tabled at the last meeting are still open for debate.

See you on the water soon.
