Winter Series Sail No. 5 (Thursday 30th March 2023) –  Start Times

AM Sailors,

After the perfect moderate conditions of last week’s sail, it looks today is again one that may favour the heavier boats and for those sailors who enjoy a bit of white on the tips of their caps.  But while the wind may be higher in our sailing range, it doesn’t seem to be forecast to exceed our agreed limits, so attached are the start times and course for today’s sail, for the young and the young at heart.

I suggest course no. 73 (8.2NM) for today’s race, which should give us a good windward work between Campbell 6 and Duck Arm.

Alan and Kaye will be on Judy G and we have Alastair back with us in the tower, on radio and to record our times.  It’s great to have you back Alastair and thank you to all of you for your help with today’s sail, as always.  I’ll do my best to be ready to serve you all behind the bar as you return after the sail.

Just a reminder that we continue to use internet time on our own devices as the reference time for our starts and finishes, so you can set up your countdown timers even if still North of the ferry or out west of the 5 knot buoys using the same reference time as Alastair in the tower.  Best of luck for those zero-zero starts!

Hoping to see you all this afternoon.

Please note, the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) still recommends that you consider wearing a mask when outside your home and especially when in crowded, indoor environments.

Best wishes,
