GRSA will hold a Frostbite/Spring series with 4 race dates and a make up date. The series will be held “in the cove”, pfds (life jackets) are required, 10 dollar entry fee per race date (exact change is appreciated).
First race is 12 noon, with a short skipper’s meeting at 11:15. Multiple races will be run per day weather dependent and are generally windward leeward courses. These races are quick and short and give racers the opportunity to work on starting tactics as well as mark rounding and spinnaker sets. In the event of a capsize that race is immediately cancelled and assistance is provided to that boat.
Race dates are Sat Feb 20, and 27th and Sun March 7th and 14th with a make up date Sat March 20th. These are open to all classes, and fleets will be formed based on the numbers. The course and length are ideal for even match racing. As in the past these are open events.
The Committee boat is currently manned for the first race. It is expected that racers will take their turn at this position throughout the season. For those who perhaps took the race committee seminar last year or before and would like the opportunity to go out and get some experience behind the wheel, please contact me thru the web site and I will be sure you are pared up with someone who is experienced. I do have room for you on FEB 20, again contact me if interested.
Updates will be sent via the clubs e mail list on Thursday or Friday prior to race weekend in the event the weather forecast is for non- sailable conditions.
