The racing is counted as 2 separate race days, so if you wish to sail only the one day and help on another, this is possible. Entries for this event will need to be made through the official MYA means by either online or yearbook. Look for online entry to open in early March on the MYA website. Anyone able to offer assistance, please contact Brad, or a member of the sailing committee.
We are hosting a National RM Ranking Race on Sunday 4/8/13 and have grouped this with a Saturday RM club race to attract greater numbers of travelling skippers. We will promoting this within the MYA as two days of RM racing to show this as being the way forward for the class, both on a racing an social level that justifies the expense of travel.
The Birkenhead club, on behalf of the Northern District will be hosting a Workshop/Tuning Day on 10/8/13. We anticipate having to limit places for this and will be prioritising available spaces to Northern District members initially. More details to follow when they come to hand, but if you’re in the North and want tips from the likes of Roberts, Elliott, Walsh and Gibson, put this date in your diary.
As of this evening the lake was still over 80% covered in ice. Taking this into account and allowing for a warmer over night temperature change, it is felt that the lake will be unsuitable to hold Round 4 of the IOM Winter Series. This race has now been re-scheduled for Saturday 9th February. Any members wishing to turn up and try their luck for a social sail, depending on clear water are as always more that welcome.
A reminder to all members that this coming Saturday, 22nd December, is the Boxing Day Bell Trophy for IOMs.
Start time 1pm sharp. Bring along your festive cheer.
