Over 20 members of the club attended an RO familiarisation course held on 11 April. With a Fish and Chip supper kicking the evening off, Bernard and Jennie took the attendees through the paperwork, flags, clocks and (very loud when it's in the clubhouse) auto hoot system and how they are used for club racing.
