Updated club sailing schedule to end September

The Sailing Committee have agreed that we will continue to release a month by month sailing schedule, so the schedule to the end of September is now posted, and we’ll review and post October’s schedule by mid-September (based on the latest government guidelines, etc). Included in the schedule is the club Merlin Rocket weekend on 22nd and 23rd August, being organised by the club’s Merlin fleet for the club’s Merlin fleet, with 2 races per day. Club racing will run in parallel with the Merlin Racing on Sunday. We’re also running the full Club Championships for the August Bank Holiday weekend, with 2 races per day on all 3 days! In September, we’ll continue with Supported Sailing on Saturdays and club racing on Sundays as this seems to be working well and minimises contact points and volunteer load. We are currently planning on running a (relatively small) Tornado Open on 19th and 20th September, alongside club racing, assuming that government guidelines do not change again for the worse before then. The sailing schedule can be viewed at
For the Sunday racing we will stick to the rostered members for Race Officer and Assistant, however please let us know ASAP if you are down to cover a race, but can no longer attend. We will continue to draw Support Boat Drivers and Crews from a smaller pool, anyone scheduled for those duties can stand down, but given the size and availability of Drivers and Crews, we do need volunteers who’d be willing to help. If you can, please contact Robert Govier Anyone scheduled for Saturday RO, ARO or Crew duties in September will not be required.
