Vice-Commodores Cup

Written on 16 June 2017 and updated on 30 June 2017

Dear Members,

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed the start of the sailing season (where has the last two and a half months gone!). It has once again been a bit of a wild beginning, but I read online that we are due a summer of sun and nice weather... do they ever say otherwise! ;) Fingers Crossed!

This coming weekend is the Vice-Commodores Cup event. As Vice Commodore I invite you to come and take part, whether you are a seasoned racer or this is your 'first proper race' you are more than welcome to join in! The more the merrier!

The Solo's and Laser's will be racing on the Saturday, three races - the first start scheduled for an 11am start. On the Sunday, it will be the turn of the Mirror's and Enterprise's, same format as the Saturday. The club will be open all weekend, with a BBQ and social on Saturday night. (Why not make a weekend of it, bring the tent; something for the BBQ; and a few bottles of your favourite tipple?)

This season, as well as the normal silverware, I am planning to award some special prizes for:

  • The Top Cadet Sailor - The top under 18 year old sailor across all classes.
  • The Top 'Unseeded' Sailor - the weekends top sailor who has not previously won a prize.
  • The Best Improver - the weekends sailor who shows the best improvement across the three races.

So even if you don't think you will be competing for first place, why not come and join in!

Look forward to seeing you all at the weekend.

All the best

Gerry
