Last Sunday there was an impressive turn out of sailors for the 1st scheduled race of 2014 but unfortunately the 30+ knot gusts kept all ashore.
To continue running our races we need people (spouses, retired sailors, cruiser sailors, mummies & daddies et al) to be race officer and rescue boat crew.
Please volunteer for a morning in some capacity.
If you need training or help that will be given.
A ‘race officer’ training is in the offing
Powerboat level 2 and safety boat courses are available.
If you are interested please contact James.
NB there are opportunities this Sunday!
The sailing season begins this Sunday the 16th March with racing starting at the new time of 10.30am.
