Captain Mark here
Saturday, August 29, 11 am is our next scheduled Stress-Free Sailing race. Brisk winds are predicted at 10 MPH from the SW. Be certain to wear your life jackets for safety. Monitor your emails the morning of the race for last-minute changes or cancellation. You will be notified before 9 am that morning
For our newcomers here is the race format. All class boats are welcome. I will place 3 buoys in the cove in front of the GSYC in a triangular course. Each team or solo (any sailboat will do including sailfish and Laser size boats are welcome) will time themselves from start to finish. There will be two short races back to back. All boats should start at the sound of the horn of the committee boat at 11 am. Try to be on time. It is more fun to start together. The first race will be in a clockwise course starting with the buoy in front of the club. The second race will start at 11:30 am and will be counterclockwise. Start your timer when you tap or come within 5’ of the first buoy and end when you tap or come within 5’ of the last buoy. I will handicap the times so everyone has a shot at winning. The race is in this format because it is designed to be stress-free and fun. We will have a race committee boat at the start. Email me your scores at the end and I will publish the times. REMEMBER TO EMAIL ME YOUR TIMES.
