At the AGM it was agreed that we start sailing on Saturdays and although I know this will not suit all, we need to get both sailing and racing on a permanent basis.
To this end Saturday sailing with the DF95 will commence on the 22nd April which will be the start of a monthly championship, and then every Saturday thereafter. I would like to vary the type of sailing to allow both race days and training/coaching days. The training /coaching days will be based around different areas of the race course with the aim of increasing the awareness and implementation of important decisions, manoeuvres and tactical awareness together with how the rules influence/dictate these areas. The monthly championship will remain just racing allowing everyone to put into practice their new knowledge in a competitive environment.
Proposed Monthly Racing dates:
I would also like to start sailing on one afternoon/evening during the week on an informal basis for both DF95 and DF65’s, allowing racing, coaching and general fun. I will be at the lake on Thursday the 20th April from 14:00, with the intention of sailing until we have had enough. The time and frequency can be modified as and when is suitable to all.
Feel free to discuss and comment and I hope to see as many as possible.
