2016 Racing 

The 2016 race programme and race officer duties are now available for download HERE, and  on the club notice board.  It is the responsibility of the boat nominated for race duties to ensure they have sufficient people, (minimum 2), experienced enough to be able manage the race duty.  Whilst Martin Gledhill may be available to assist on the day, it cannot be guaranteed.  The boat nominated may still race on the duty day.  If a boat cannot fulfil its allocated race duty it should try and swap with another boat and notify a member of the sailing committee.  From January 2016 any yacht unable to race while carrying out race officer duties will be awarded points based on their average points in that series excluding DNC, penalties as detailed in 14.1.2 - 14.1.4 shall be applied to this average.  We will be running training sessions on the new computer based starting system early in the new year, the dates will be notified.
