Whats On at the Club this Weekend?

Dear Members,

The wind is looking great here at the club this weekend. It would be great to see all of you on the water.

This Sunday’s Racing we have Tristan Beckett  as your Race Officer and on Safety will be Tom Hayes.

 

We have some of our Instructors doing come catamaran sailing this weekend in preparation for their up and coming RYA Multihull Instructor Conversion course. Lets hope the wind is up how it should be so they get some fun hanging out on the wire.

 

Rules Evening 

We had a very successful rules evening hosted by Chris Simon on the evening of the 25th January. With over 40 people attending and a great Chilli made by Sebastian, it was a great night for all. If you have a topic of interest or anything that interests you, please talk to Gabrielle and we will get an evening booked in and planned.

Just to give you all a heads up, you will all receive an email next week regarding your duty allocation for 2017/2018. The dates will start from 1/04/2017. You will be given a requested time to select and roster yourself for your own duties. This email will be going out on Wednesday.

Last Night’s Rules Evening

Thank you to Chris Simons for hosting last night’s rules evening. There was a great turnout. A big thank you to Sebastian Camisuli for making a great Chilli ably assisted by George Hoskins who served with “Burrell”esque, panache that went down well with all the club members, also to Helen Beecham for helping with the setup.

It was really great to see so many members getting to know each other and to know that more people now understand the rules.

The main aim of the evening was for Chris to make us all aware of the new changes that had been made since the start of the new edition and to help us to expand our knowledge on the most important rules. It was clear that everyone had learnt at least one thing from the evening.

There will be more evenings like this to follow. If you have a story to tell (or know somebody who does), or have a discussion topic, let Gabrielle know and we will get it organised.

‘You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else’

Thanks,

Tristan

 

Racing Rules Reminder and Update

We are very lucky to have Chris Simon coming to the club on the evening of Wednesday January 25th at 7:30pm to take us through the key rules in action and update us on the rule changes coming into force in January.  (I learnt something about the last rule change when we were talking about him coming in!).  Sebastian has also ‘volunteered’ to make one of his famous chillis for those able to turn up a bit early.

 

Chris (who is our regional RYA rules adviser), brings a wealth of experience – sitting on the RYA Racing Rules Committee, and being the first Brit to be an international judge, umpire and race officer at the same time.  I’d encourage all members to attend.

 

Please let the office know if you plan to come and also if you would like to eat so we can get a big enough pot.

Many Thanks,
