21 Mar Force 4 RPCYC/WHSC Late Summer series Race 6 September 1st 2016
There wasn’t one!
Just when you think you have all your ducks in a row
The Race Officer had set and displayed the course, the line crew had primed their watches and sharpened their pencils. The safety boats were on station and competitors were assembling on the start line only for us to get the instruction that the port was closed until 7.30p.m. for shipping movements.
The RO wisely cancelled as it would be twilight by that time with an hour’s wait. Most dinghies went off for a ‘jolly’ up the R.Plym to Radford Lake and the Squibs enjoyed what sailing they could.
Thanks go to the Race Officer, Roger Payne, his line crew, the safety boats including Steve Andrew and his boat.
A reminder that next week’s races are being started 20 minutes earlier because of the failing light.
Entries are starting to come in for the Combined clubs regatta on Sunday 25th September, entry details can be found here and you can enter and pay online (£10 per boat) or over the Corinthian bar.
Sadly the club will not be running the Final Fling event which was scheduled for October.
