GOOD NEIGHBOUR SERIES NOTICE BOARD

 

July 24th:  New start times for Friday nights and a notice from Pierre Farmer.

There are 2 starts planned as usually about 20 of 50 different boats take part in race weekly. First start will be for boats with crew handicap of less than 1 (slower boats compared to the fleet) and second start will be for boats with crew handicap of 1 and more (faster boats compared to the fleet).

Pass the word that we are now doing 2 regular small starts 5 minutes apart with comparable speed boats.
Considering the number last week we only did one start we only did one start, if we have more than 15 boats we will do the 2 starts.


July 3rd:  New start times for Friday nights and a notice from Pierre Farmer.

Please find the results and standings of the 5 pursuit races to post or print for your club.
Please find the start sequence of the second session which is small starts of 10 boats faster ones first at 18h30 to post or print for your club.
There are possibly 5 starts planned as 42 different boats took part in races. I believe that in effect each start will be composed of 5 to 6 boats per start (maybe a little more for the faster and more experienced boats of start 1).
