RBSC – NOTE FROM THE COMMODORE – WINTER SAILING
Those of us who enjoy the winter sailing have been having fun out on the water.. We have had turn outs this year of over twenty boats and some good days with fresh winds blowing down the length of the broad.
This is just a reminder that the club continues to operate through the festive season. Next Sunday the 20th is for normal winter series racing.
The following Sunday the 27th December is a special one off morning, with a pursuit race starting at 10.30. The race will last for 72 minutes for the slowest boat with the winner presented with the prestigious silver Bent Vase and prizes for the runners up.
Following the pursuit race we will run a short 30 minute race for the Watson Cup. This is for double handed boats which are to be sailed by the helm only – a bit of fun for the competitors and the spectators !
