Scoring for the Summer Series will be based on each boat's best three races. If there's a tie the score from the fourth race will determine the winner. Remember, scoring is by boat (not by skipper) so do your best to get your boat into all four races!
An unofficial Tune-Up race is scheduled for Saturday, June 28. This race is a shake-down race to get the kinks out of your crew and boat and for fun only. Results will not be recorded.
Everyone is invited to the annual Launch Party at Siqvelands' following the second race on Saturday, July 5th. This is a great chance to get together and say hello for another summer and talk sailing and racing.
At the awards ceremony after the last race last summer the idea of a beach party and an event to create interest around Ten Mile in racing was discussed. Those present liked the idea and would like to make plans with the group. We look forward to setting a date!
More Race Courses...A Test!
Some sailors (including myself) have expressed enthusiasm for expanding the course layouts available to us for any given race. (See Course Designations). It's a nice system used by other sailing clubs. If we all like the idea of more course options, and testing this procedure, we will test it during the Memorial Cup on July 19th. If the test works well, and the members like the course options, it will become the regular procedure for choosing and communicating the course for each race. This will be part of our discussion at the Launch Party on July 5th!
