From Sailing Captain Rob Sears
Please remember that we are running our first training session on Sunday 28 April. We will be starting the day at 10:00 prompt. I will be doing a presentation called ‘What makes a boat move’. Whilst the obvious answer is wind, it is actually a bit more complicated than that and if you understand how it all works you can do a better job at adjusting your sails to go faster – at least that is the theory!
We plan to start the training race at about 10:45 and some of the more experienced sailors will be on hand to follow you around in the safety boats & give advice.
Hopefully this date is already in your diary, so I hope to see lots of you on that day.
P.S. Please can I remind all OOD’s that you need record the elapsed times for all races, even if the result is obvious, such as there only being one class racing. We also run a personal handicap system & we need the elapsed times to score these series. Thanks.
