Summer Series Racing, July 27

The 2019 Summer Series Club Racing series continues on July 27… come join us for an afternoon of racing! The Captain’s meeting is at 2pm.

At 11AM, we will be holding a seminar covering the rules (keeping things as simple as possible) of racing, as well some lesson plans and (maybe) drills on starting a race and negotiating the course and other boats on the course. We hope to cover all of these items and more to get you on the race course. The best way to become a better sailor is to sharpen your skills with racing!

The goal is to enable all the racers the ability to participate on each race day, so we need to have a committee of volunteers to run the Race Committee for each of our club races. Carol will be leading Saturday’s Race Committee, and she’ll need some volunteers to help on the barge and the Safety boat.

Please contact me regarding your availability for Race Committee on the 27th of July. Alternatively you can sign up on the WSC web site.

Pursuit Challenge – June 29th

We are planning to have a pursuit sail on Saturday afternoon June 29th with Captains meeting starting at 2 pm. We plan to start the slower boats first and followed by the faster boats later. Each boat will get an individual start time to push off from our dock. We plan to do a large triangular course around the lake. Our course around the lake should be without a lot of or any tacking and will finish in front of our boat club. First boat starts at 3 PM, This should be a great sail for our larger Sailboats. We will have our customary pot-luck after the finish, so come and join us on Saturday, 29 June.
