OPENING WEEKEND 2011


Welcome to Opening Weekend 2011

Happy Canada Day

It’s 730am and there is not a cloud in the sky… There is also no wind. It’s dead calm. But I have hope for today. The forecasted wind is only 5k… Might be just perfect for our first jr race.

I’ll wait and let the day develop, and hopefully get some feedback from some of you as to what the group wants regarding today vs a Sunday jr race.

Saturday July 2 – Round the Islands

We open with a big one. There is a trophy for this annual race.
I’m consulting with the chief marshal on this as the weekend develops. The plan is to go with Round the Islands, unless we have almost no wind. I don’t think anyone wants to sit on a dead sailboat for 3 hours.. So if you see wind.. Prepare for the big race. If not, the marshal will shorten the course, we still race but far shorter… and rounds the islands will wait for another day.

Start procedure:
00:10:00 Blue flag – up at 10 min to go
00:05:00 Red flag – up at 5 min to go
00:01:00 White flag – up at 60 seconds

White flag drops at start or “go”!

Juniors- we will use a megaphone to call out the final 15 seconds so that everyone understands and learns the procedure.

I will set the markers today for more practice.
Remember… FOLLOW TWITTER THIS BLOG SITE, AND FACEBOOK TO DETERMINE IF THE RACE IS ON OR NOT!!!

See you on the lake!
