Get the most from race days

Published by at 8:45 pm under Racing

NEW RACING RULES A MYSTERY?

 

UNSURE WHAT SAFETY BOAT DUTY ENTAILS?

 

RACE OFFICER SKILLS RUSTY?

 

NEED TIPS ON RACE TACTICS?

                                                                                                                           

If you answered “yes” to one (or, heaven forbid, all) the above, clear Friday March 20th in your diary and come to TBYC that evening.  Here will be assembled five of the club’s great and good, having given up their time (with the promise of a drink in Spratty’s case) to help you get the most from race days.

 

The evening starts at 19:00 when food is dished up – chicken, sausage or scampi with chips – then should go as follows:

20:00         Alan Willis and Phil Crawford run through the Race Officer’s duties

20:45         Paul Spratt will outline the safety boat routine

21:00         Chris Boshier explains the new racing rules

21:30         Ken Herve gives hints & tips about race starts and tactics

 

Wow!  How lucky are we to have these menagerie come along and share their experience with us?  This is not intended to be a formal night, questions will be encouraged (though hecklers will be given working party chores) and hopefully a relaxed yet educational time will be had by all.

 

Purchase your ticket in advance from Chris Maloney – £5.00 each, which includes the food.  Ring 07896 676148 now or miss the boat

    Well done Chris. You did a great job. The presentations by Paul Spratt, Alan Willis, Phil Crawford, Chris Boshier and Ken Herve were the tops.

    Even when we were bleary-eyed at the end, we were spellbound by Ken Herve’s presentation. And how did Chris Boshier manage to keep our attention with something as dry as the rule changes? His presentation was with great humour: it was superb.
