Sailing Captain Report: Winter Series Racing Sunday 15 Sept 2019 & 2019/20 Summer Racing Program

Hi all, 

Two HYC Keelers got on the water for a Harbour Race with CCYC (9x Boats) on Sunday. It was from what I understand, an excellent day on the water. Firsty managed to come away with the win on line and handicap, well done Craig and his crew! The best start went to Escape, well done to Trev and his team.  

Craig and his ‘Firsty’ team took out the 2019 HYC Winter Series, well done!! 
I am sure Craig will be shouting his ‘Firsty’ team a beer!

Below are the race results:

Results: Race 12 Best Start: Escape
1. Firsty
2. Escape

Overall Series Results (Final)
1. Firsty
2. Escape
3. Slipknot 
4. Eye Spy

The next Dinghy race day is scheduled for this Sunday 22th September at 1200hrs. Sheds open at 1045hrs. We will look to have 3 races, possibly 4.

2019/20 Summer Racing Program: OPENING DAY Sunday 20 Oct 2019
The 2019/20 Summer program is planned to start with Friday night Dinghy Training & Introduction on Friday 18th Oct 2019 at 5pm, and a Keelers/Div. 5 skippers meeting.

Keeler/Div5 Skippers Meeting; 
There is a skippers meeting on Friday 18 Oct 2019, @ 7pm, in the club. Agenda is TBA. 

Opening Day
The Summer Racing Program will start with Opening day on the Sunday 20 Oct 2019 for both Keelers (Div5) and Dinghies (Div1&2).  Racing is planned to be around the buoys and close to the club. 
Time is TBA but likely to be around mid-day. This will be followed by a social event put on by the House committee.

NOTE:  2019/20 Summer Racing Program will be released to Social media, the Website and Club members in the next two weeks. The sailing committee are just finalising a few dates and liaising with some external organisations before its release. Our apologies for the delay.   

Happy sailing or more probably, happy pre-summer boat maintenance!
