Relay Race SIs
It's time to think about forming teams for the relay race. Please remember this is intended to be a fun afternoon's sailing not a serious prize winning opportunity. We're looking for a minimum of five teams and preferably more. The overriding aim is to maximise the number of people having fun on the water. If you are planning to put a team together it helps if you can let Rear Commodore Sailing know please.
Those of you who have competed in the past will notice a few changes for this year.
1. It's been changed from an autumn event to a summer one. This is to make it more attractive to stay on afterwards for a spot of socialising. House committee will be circulating details.
2. In order to make it a little easier to put teams together the sailing instructions are slightly different.
a. There must be a cadet in the team but they are no longer required to be the helm of the Topper. Give us all a laugh and get a grandparent to sail the Topper instead! We've lots of good cadets in the club so you could form a separate team as well.
b. The requirement for each team to have a lady member has also been dropped. That's not to say ladies aren't welcome they are. For instance this rule change means there could be a ladies only team, which would have been difficult under the old rules. Now, there's a good challenge!
c. An individual is no longer limited to sailing in only one boat. This change is to make it easier to form a team, not to enable a couple of ace sailors to outperform everyone else. Please only take advantage of this rule change if it is the only way of putting a team together.
3. The Fun Sailing shown in the BB will not take place. If you were planning a fun sail, please form a team and take part in the race instead. Even if you're not very experienced this is a good opportunity to get afloat and have a bit of fun.
