Hello Everyone!!!

It's been a long time since we sail together.

I would like to start again our monthly sailing meetings to enjoy some regatta adventures.

I invite you to join me at Protected content to work on gaining maximum sailing experience. Protected content is running "Saturday Racing Clinics". Racing forces you to learn how to sail fast and efficiently, so it is the best way to hone your skills. It is also fun to try and beat others. Racing is open to all ages between Protected content of experience.

The format is short and sweet:

Check-in at the marina at 10:00am on Saturday. No prior reservation required. The cost is $60 per person - if we will be group of 4 or more we will get a discount of $10.

10:30am: Skipper's Meeting commences. The Principal Race Officer goes over the course, expected wind conditions, starting sequence, and House Rules. We then assign participants to their boats. An experienced skipper is always on board of each boat. If winds are over 12 knots steady then newbees can steer but only on the reaches and runs. Having an inexperienced person steering at the start or windward legs can be dangerous in higher winds.

Everyone boards their boats and heads for the race course.

The Race Committee holds three to four races; it is usually a "Gold Cup Course" or triangle. Video commentary is given so we can all learn from mistakes.

We usually return to the dock by 1pm. A de-briefing is given and participants enjoy refreshments while we talk about who won and why they won. Awards are presented to the winning crew.

You may want to bring a windbreaker or rain gear top.

I hope to see you there -
