This is what you have all been waiting for!!!! The Re-scheduled Event of the Year!!
New to this year’s programme. The Cat Fleet Championships are being held on Sunday 16 November. This is open to all RSC Cat fleet members, beginners or seasoned sailors.
The event may be run as part of the club racing off the club start line or we may have our own course. I have the resources allocated except for safety cover which I am hopeful of getting. However if we have to run it as part of club racing we will have our own separate start with a course set specifically for the Cat Fleet. We will start after the other fleets. This will help those who are not too familiar or experienced at racing and will help them to feel more comfortable. So if you have never raced before then this will be an ideal opportunity to give it a go.
There will be prizes in the categories Single handed, Double handed and Novices based on personal PYs.
Programme for the day:-
Sign on in the main training room before 10:15. This room is reserved for us all day.
Briefing at 10:15 in the main training room.
First race not before 11:00 followed by race 2.
Race 3 start after lunch approx. 14:00. Followed by race 4
Video playback of the action being played in the main training room after racing
Prize giving will take place after racing in training room along with refreshments. Tea/Coffee/Cakes.
There will be an entry fee of £5 as a donation to cover the cost of prizes and refreshments after racing. Any balance will go into fleet funds
Make a date in your diary and support this new initiative. Come and try out racing if you haven’t before. If you have been involved in this year’s coaching sessions come and put your new skills into practice.
If you are not planning to sail but would like to help out on the committee boat or in a rib taking videos don’t be shy in coming forward.
