This is 2 races back to back for all 5 fleets with the first start at 09.30am. You would need to be at the club slipway at 08.15am.

This would be good experience for anyone who has not done much, or any, race management previously or who wishes to polish up their experience and familiarise themselves with the Committee Boat.

Week-end Mini Series

Published by under Racing

 

This week-end (26 & 27 April) is the first of 3 week-end mini-series in the 2014 TBYC Race Calendar. The format is the same as the week-end mini-series in 2013.

Each mini-series has 2 races back to back on the Saturday and Sunday for each fleet, with results based on one discard if all 4 races are sailed.   The same 3 starts sequence and 5 fleets as for normal club series racing is maintained in accordance with the 2014 Sailing Instructions.

As last year, the races on Saturday and Sunday will also each count towards the Spring Saturday Series and Spring Sunday Series as appropriate so if you only sail one of the days at a week-end your sailing is still contributing towards a Saturday or Sunday series result.

The other 2 week-end mini-series in 2014 are on 19 & 20 July 2014 and 13 &14 September 2014.
