Icicle Series 2020

The Icicle series is now well under way with good attendance especially from our younger sailors.

It’s not too late to join in the racing or just come for a sail. If that is not for you then maybe come down and watch the racing, have cup of tea or coffee and a chat to other members.

Thanks to Lynn Harland for the photos.

Change to Sailing Instructions published: Valid for Winter Series

The Sailing Committee have been discussing how to make the starting of races more fair when there are strong winds and capsized boats.

The Starting Area has now been defined and the Race Officer should delay the warning signal for a race start until there are 3 boats sailing within it.

The Committee will continue to monitor the question whether two boats should be required to start to constitute a race (currently a race is valid with just one boat starting), and make changes in future if necessary.

Winter series Notice of Race is on the Noticeboard and published here.

End of Autumn Series results

The fresh north easterly breeze, along with the cold temperatures of the weekend, made the possible sailors think twice about taking part in the final Sunday of the Autumn Series.  The water level continues to go down, and it may be some time before levels rise again without some heavy rainfall.

Congratulations to Martin and Lynn Harland who comprehensively take the win in the morning and afternoon series.
