Race Officer Training - Tuesday 29 April
In response to demand ( at the club and on the Facebook site ) last autumn, we're having an evening session for anyone who wants to improve their race management skills. It'll be especially useful for anyone who has a race team duty this year, and is a bit unsure of what is involved. It's free (apart from what you spend at the bar!) and we will have hands-on examples of course-setting, start lines etc. Please come and add to your skills.
Clubhouse Opening - Sunday 4 May – Early start for Marabu
Our newly refurbished clubhouse will be formally opened at 4pm on 4 May by the Mayor of Knaresborough. We now have a much improved base from which we can all indulge our passion for sailing. It's a great facility, thanks to Richard Pryke and his team, so please come and make it a rousing opening ! The galley and bar will be open.
The Marabu Races that day will start early at 1045, 1245, and 1400 so they can finish in time for the opening, and races will be 60 minute pursuits (rather than 75 minute).
With the season now well under way and the first open event fading into history it is time to look at some of the clubs other activities. There are still places left on the Powerboat familiarisation session on Saturday 5th April, remember that if you have a safety boat duty allocated this season then you are expected to have attended one of these session.
Saturday 12th April we are running of a First Aid course, primarily of interest to the clubs instructors and coaches who need to refresh their knowledge but also open to anyone who is looking to become an instructor or assistant instructor.
There are still places available on the Oppy Course (3rd & 5th May).
To see when and what we are running over the remainder of the season keep an eye on the RYA Courses section of the website where you will find course dates, further details and booking forms.
Final Results here....
Saturday 29th March, first race 11-00 am, entry fee £10-00.
We look forward to welcoming you to our first open meeting of the season, you will be the first visitors to sample the recently refurbished clubhouse.
