Racing 5th & 6th September

The first interim race series finished last weekend. We are starting this weekend a second interim race series to take us up to the end of October, which is traditionally when our Summer Series would end and we transition to the Winter Series. We are largely continuing as we were, but with a few refinements that reflect and build upon the successful levels of participation. There are a numbers of issues to be resolved before the exact race programme, including the number of races to qualify, can be confirmed and this will follow in the next week or so. Items in planning for September and October include:

  • A Tera Open Meeting (with no club racing or general sailing on that day);
  • A Club Trophy day;
  • A Wednesday afternoon series;
  • Moving to a split morning and afternoon sessions for Class Racing on Sunday.

Please ensure you sign on before the race. This is also our record of who was present at the club during the racing session. Please register your attendance on site during racing sessions even if you are not racing, please use the ‘Additional Attendance’ tab.

 

Saturday afternoon: pursuit race (first start 14:00) with no limits on entry numbers.

Youth Training 

Saturday morning is now reserved for youth training.  The booking process for Saturday mornings is being managed by Iain Soars (Teras) and  Sean Nee (Cadets+  including Cadets, Toppers, Laser 4.7s and Laser Radials.)
 
If you wish to be included in the youth training and have not yet been emailed, please contact Iain or Sean as appropriate. 

Wednesday Afternoon Racing Proposal

We are looking at a proposal to run racing on Wednesday afternoon now that the daylight hours prevents racing in the evening, and many people are working more flexibly from home. To understand whether it is feasible to run a series starting in September we are are looking to determine the number of members who would be interested in competing and volunteering to run the racing. If you are interested I'd be grateful if you would indicate so in the sheet at the link below so we can gauge the level of interest.

The start time for the race will be 2pm.

Covid- 19 Update 5th August 2020

Stage 3 Plan Launched

We have now revised our approach to "Staying safe on the water". Our new Stage 3 Plan can be downlanded below. I ask you all to read and action the plan.

Key changes are as follows:

  • Sailing in two handed boats with non family members is permitted subject to restrictions.
  • Additional clarification on groups and gatherings is included
  • Members may now bring a guest to the club
  • Operation of safety boats rules have now changed with a requirement for all safety boat crew to carry, and if necessary, use a face mask or face covering. These will be sent out under separate cover
  • A limited take away bar service is now in operation subject to availability of members to man it
  • The bar (And galley when reopened) is now a cashless operation so a card will be needed. Bar is now off limits except to those volunteering. Please feel free to wear masks or face coverings when ordering from the bar
  • The new plan has codified the reintroduction of youth training and the hoped for restart of Sailability on Thursdays subject to this weeks further trial

Clarity is provided on what you can do and what cannot at this time which hopefully will assist

A further revision to By-Law 3 has been introduced and it is required that you all read this and comply in full please

It is essential that you all continue to log-in if you are attending the club for any reason. Log-in will be on Casual sailing web page, racing log-in sheets or Youth, Sailability or MYG specific systems

As more of you are now sailing it is anticipated that you may wish to help the club to keep all activities going. If you wish to volunteer for race or safety duties please contact the Sailing Secretary or Vice- Commodore. If you can volunteer to help with the bar please contact the Rear Commodire

Any comments or suggestions on the Stage 3 Plan please contact me
