    • GRSA Pavilion

       Your Race Committee, under Pete Cookson’s guidance, has put together a great & SIMPLE seminar on race operations.  Serving on a Race Committee is fun and easy. There is nothing hard about it and, matter of fact, your own sailing will improve dramatically from the up-close observation of other skippers in action. You don’t have to be a racer, or even an experienced sailor, to enjoy a few hours on the lake on the pontoon boat.

                    This is designed for all interested to attend.  We are targeting two date possibilities – Tuesday evening, August 18 or Tuesday evening August 25.  The whole thing should be finished in less than two hours and volunteering for Race Committee is a great way to support your club and expand your know-how.  You will get a new and different perspective of sailing, to say nothing of meeting new friends.

                    Here’s how simple it is. Areas to be discussed include:

    • ·         Getting the committee boat set up, in the water and it’s operation
    • ·         Registering the competitors
    • ·         Setting the course
    • ·         Order of starts and sequences – horn, flags, sign boards and such
    • ·         Starting the race
    • ·         Completing the race and recording results
    • ·         How to score

                    Please consider this easy learning opportunity and helping out your fellow sailors….take your pick of the dates. We’ll do our best to make this fun and worthwhile from many perspectives.

                    Please respond quickly if you are interested, Please RSVP to Pete peter.cookson@verizon.net or Tom Tomg14024@gmail.com with the date you prefer

                                    Choice one - Tuesday, August 18, 6:30 PM

                                    Choice two – Tuesday, August 25, 6:30 PM

    Please note that GRSA will be practicing safe social distancing at this event due to COVID 19.    

    Thanks!!!!

            Notice of Race

      The Greater Richmond Sailing Association will hold Racing on Sunday  September 6th. These races are a closed event and registration and participation is open to members in good standing of the Greater Richmond Sailing Association. Crews may be guests, but boats must display current GRSA boat sticker and skipper must meet the criteria of the above.

      While sailing involves certain risks, racers who enter these races understand, and acknowledge these risks and accept the possibility of harm and or damage. These risks, as sailors we try to mitigate thru training, carrying safety equipment, and following the Racing Rules as stated by RRS and GRSA. The decision to sail or not rests with the skipper and crew of each boat.

      Sailing, in the midst of a pandemic, adds another layer of risk. These too must be individually weighed as to the dangers and possibility for infection, transmission of the illness to ourselves as well as to our fellow competitors. While certain steps have been taken to mitigate the possibility of transmission of the virus, by registering we acknowledge these risks.  In holding these events all participants are asked to follow to the best of their abilities the guidelines as set forth by CDC and other health officials.  Keeping appropriate distancing while on shore, use of masks in closer settings, frequent hand washing are just some of the recommendations.  We ask that if you have a fever or any other symptoms such as loss of taste, smell, or have been in contact with a person who may have tested positive; that you be mindful of your fellow club members and not participate.

      As part of the registration, you will need to attest to the wellness of yourself and crew.

      Registration will be open at approximately 10 AM the morning of the event, with a brief skipper’s meeting at 11 and first gun as soon as practicable.  Registration forms will need to be filled out and a $10 dollar entry fee paid. Checks are ok, but if paying in cash, exact change is required.  Registration will be held outside the pavilion as will be the skippers meeting.  Following the race, results will be posted on the bulletin board, there will be no official gathering for results. 

      3 races are planned, a single race will constitute a series.  Fleets of 3 or more class boats will be given a start.  If deemed appropriate a handicap fleet may be formed. 

      Low point scoring, no throw outs.
