2019 Summer Series Club Racing starts APRIL 27

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

This year, we’re doing something different to encourage newer-to-racing sailors to participate. At 11AM on each day of club racing, 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!

As we did last year (thank you Courtney!!), in the goal of enabling all the racers to participate on each race day, we are hoping to have a committee of volunteers to run the Race Committee for each of our club races. A Race Committee should have a leader (Primary Race Officer) as well as four additional volunteers (barge + safety boat) for each race day to allow us to have an easy (for the Race Committee) and fun (for all) day.

If you think that being the Primary Race Officer for the season sounds like something you would like to tackle, please let me know.

Please contact me regarding your availability for Race Committee on the 27th of April. Alternatively you can sign up on the WSC web site at https://waccamawsailing.com/volunteer-sign-up-sheets/.

ps. As it is every club race, it is our tradition to bring an appetizer to share and whatever beverage you wish. Join us for the fun and a few lies from sailors as to how well they sailed that day! Additionally, this is a great opportunity to invite potential members to visit.
