The Winter Series starts on Sunday 5 November and concludes with the Christmas Pudding Race on the 10 December. Recreational sailors are welcome also.
Each sailor, racer and recreational, are required to do at lest one duty during the series. Please log into Dutyman, select ‘Volunteer for a Duty’ on the Roster page and click on the swap symbol to the right of the duty you would like to do. Once you have volunteered, you are automatically entitled to sail the series.
This Sunday, 11 December 2016
Racing starts at 11.00am followed by mince pies and mulled wine. All members welcome, whether you race or not. Just come along to enjoy the festive cheer. All we ask is for you to email Steve, email@example.com, so we have an idea how many mince pies to buy/make.
1st Lynn and Martin Harland 2nd Tom Abbot Joint 3rd Ed Oliver and Dan Langdon
Total of £128.36 collected
We are raising money for the Andrew Simpson Foundation and would welcome as many Durleigh Salors as possible to take part, either by taking part in the racing or coming along as a spectator and purchasing a delicious cream tea, donated by members. Free cream tea for all racers. £5 entry fee. All money will go to the foundation.
The racing will be a fun event to encourage non-racers and handicap allowances will be made for new racers and fancy dress:
40 additional points for new racers.
30 additional points to each of the top 3 best dressed boats and crew.
15 additional points for all other dressed boats and/or crew.
To avoid collisions, all normal sailing rules apply but there will be no shouting “starboard” or “water”. Anyone caught shouting these words will have to do a 360 penalty. For ‘starboard’ replace it with “hello, how are you”, for ‘water’ or ‘water at the mark’, replace it with “nice weather for sailing”. All others, just be polite.
Please make the effort and come along. It should be a fun day.
