James Farrell has taken on the task of organising a rota for race officers between now and Christmas. To do this he needs as many volunteers as possible to come forward.
Racing is every Sunday, with two planned Saturdays 27 September & 18th October. A race officer is needed from about 12:00 until 1:30 / 2:00. There will be help with all aspects (course/results etc) from an experienced sailor each day. (Michael, Gerry Shannon, John Lowry or James)
So please respond to this and ‘do a day’!
James: email@example.com | 028 2177 172 / 078 1686 3515
Also, Michael is looking after the rescue officer rota. If you would be able to help with this please get in touch with him.
