Have you seen the race officer’s horn?

Published by under Club Notices

As you all know, the race officer has a horn when he’s on the committee boat. He has a horn when he starts the races and when he finishes them. If he is on his own, he will hold the flags in one hand and his horn in the other. But when his wife is there, she will hold the horn for him.

He normally keeps his horn hidden in the cabin. The horn has wires with crocodile clips, which he attaches to a battery. When he’s finished, the horn is disconnected and is packed away, in a wooden box.

Unfortunately, the race officer has lost his horn. I’ve had a good search for it, but to no avail. If anybody has information as to its whereabouts, please could he/she inform a member of the sailing committee.

With thanks,

Andrew Hannah.
