Spring Race Series

The Spring Series of keelboat races begins  Saturday, April 15 2023 and is open to all club members 

Those skippers not presently club members are welcome to join in on the races however to compete in the series they must join up. 

If you wish to compete or crew on other boats please show up at the clubhouse ( white building south harbour) at 9:00 am. 

The races begin at 10:00 am and last about 2 – 3 hours.

All crew must have an approved personal flotation device each and all boats competing must meet club safety standards.  

All boats must  have a functional VHF radio and monitor 68 ( our working frequency ) and channel 16. 

As we are also using GPS designed points for some of our marks some sort of GPS device ( even smart phone ) is recommended.

A chart of the points and marks will be provided at race meeting but is attached to this email as well. 

We will race every Saturday (weather permitting), and we meet at the coast guard station for 9am sharp

We especially like to see any new or old club members  come out and race and  pick up crew are always welcome ( bring a friend ). 

As well as the great camaraderie there is the huge bonus of being able to develop your sailing skills with all the accompanying support and friendly advice you could ask for.
