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,
