Main Points – Changes to the Starting Sequence

 News  Comments Off on Main Points – Changes to the Starting Sequence
Apr 012017

The starting sequence for Main Points has changed for 2017.  




The sequence will be as follows:

  1. Lasers & Juniors
  2. RS200s & Fireflys (Fireballs)
  3. Snipes
  4. GP14s
  5. Solos


Russell is trying to decrease the numbers of starts to give more racing time.

There will be a manual calculation of handicap results between Juniors in Toppers and Juniors in Laser Radials while also allowing Juniors in Laser Radials to compete in the Laser fleet. Russell has promised that the situation will be monitored closely, and in the event of issues the start sequence can be altered in the RMS to accommodate alternative start sequences and amended through a change to the sailing instructions posted in the clubhouse.

Icebreaker Series Report

Mar 262017

The Icebreaker Series reached a conclusion today (Sunday 26th March) with glorious sunshine,  warm temperatures and a good wind from the East down the Mere.

The PRO and ARO set 3 good courses from boat starts, covering the length of the water, from I or A down to E or F.  The wind at the top of the course also benefited from the recent work on the trees around I and H. 

The top scorers were spread across 3 different classes:

  • First – Dave Nicholson (Laser)
  • Second – Phil Barnes (Solo)
  • Third – Martin and Sian Joesbury (RS200)

A total of 33 sailors took part, with 15 qualifying, so a good turnout during a March month that was kind to us, with good wind and good sailing!

The full series results from our computer race system are in the Racng/Results section – click here

NEXT SUNDAY – A reminder that April sees the start of our Main Points series, so if you boat is still in winter storage, time to get down to the club and enjoy a sail!

Pursuit Race success!

The Pursuit Trophy Race on the 27th November (postponed from October because of lack of wind) was close to suffering the same fate again, the day that the Budworth Pairs had vacated! However, a breeze from the north east was sufficient both races to be run successfully! The wind direction made for a tight course to be sailed with E to C as the first beat.

A ‘remnant’ from the Budworth Pairs, a Firefly was the ‘scratch’ boat, with Solo, GP14, Laser and RS200 following on. Ted Garner in the Solo quickly caught up his handicap of 1 minute 11 seconds to overtake the Firefly, and thereafter a ‘battle royal’ began [read more...]
