Volunteers required for RO & Safety boat

Message from the sailing secretary:

Thank you and help please!

The races planned for this Sunday are the last in the current series.

Many thanks to everyone who has volunteered so far. You have made the racing possible. We still need volunteers for this Sunday both for Race Officer and Safety Boat. Please contact me if you can help.

The sailing calendar is up now for the rest of the year.

We will be racing in the same format that we have been doing so far and again around low tides.

Once again we are asking for members to volunteer for Race officer duties and for Safety boat. If you have raced so far this year or expect to race, please let me know when you can help out. Due to current restrictions we can only allow members who are in a same household unit or in a bubble to do safety boat. Single members can do Race Officer and we have determined it is possible to socially distance with some creativity in the race box, so we will be seeking assistant reach officers to do time keeping. It is also possible to run the race singlehanded.

As before please contact Simon on sailingsec@lancingsc.org.uk and I will put you on Dutyman.

Thanks also for your patience with the new results programme.



Racing times and request for volunteers

At the time of writing we have no Race Officer or assistant for racing at 11am on Sunday 26th, or for subsequent Sundays for that matter.

A list of all the revised start times is listed below.

If anyone is willing to volunteer could you please contact Simon at sailingsec@lancingsc.org.uk

We have no duty rota at the moment and are reliant on volunteers coming forward, otherwise it will not be possible to race.

We have also noted that a number of paddleboards are being stored in the Annex Hut. Now that we are racing it is unfair that people who want to get sailing-related kit out of the hut have to move paddleboards before they can do so. Please can paddleboards be removed.
