Lots to cover this week following an “interesting” weekend regatta at Rudyard. Overall congratulations to Eric and Jules for doing all 6 races and only ending up in the water once! Rudyard was not at its best, with the wind coming over the top of the hills, and then hitting the water in complete random directions!
This weekend sees the Solo Open on Sunday, so there will be no club racing. But if you can lay your hands on a Solo, please come down and enter.
Our Open day is coming up on Monday 5th May. More details here and its good to see we have also been mentioned in the RYA website and twitter feed. The more helpers the better, its really important we have people to help show visitors around and encourage them to join. So please make time to come down and help.
Starting on Wednesday 7th May for 10 weeks we are running “Start Racing” sessions on Wednesday evenings 6.30-8.30pm. The aim of these sessions is to introduce more people to racing. Again, for more details, click here.
The next big event in the calendar is our Push the Boat out event. This is on 17th May and includes a visit by an olympic sailor, the first Go sailing session to encourage members to “Go Sailing”. There will be safety boat cover and coaching if required, an evening BBQ and much much more. For more details click here. If you would like to come to the BBQ/New Members evening, please help us to plan the catering by filling in this form (by email to Brenda).
Lastly, we are about to send off an order for RLSC sweat shirts. If you would like one, please look at this RLSC sweatshirt order form
