First club events – a soft start to the race season. Start sequence rehearsal for racers and ROs

Sat 15th May – Roy is taking this session as Principal RO on the Committee Boat

Wed 19th May – another RO gets us away

First start as per our normal race timings. We plan four starts in sequences as per our SIs at half hour intervals, wind, daylight and time permitting. Course boards used to show the windward mark. Watch for the flags and hoots.

Just the start sequence, course selection and progress to a windward mark only. No race results will be recorded (It is not a set of races it is start practice.)

We will attempt to have two RIBs on the water – suitably crewed. Supporting the dinghies and start mark laying.
