Special Notice: LFYC Race Officer

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

For many years George D has been the LFYC Race Officer. The main duty of the Race Officer is to make out the annual LFYC race schedule. We normally have about 62 race days per year. The race schedule is the start point from which we build the club and all of our sailing activity.

Scheduling is a tricky task involving an understanding of the river,  the tides and the port, interweaving regatta events, training days and the fine art of conjuring in terms of scheduling the OD and rescue cover.

At the last club mtg George D mentioned that he would like to step down as Race Officer this year. Many thanks to George D for his excellent service to the club with regard to this important task.

I am delighted to announce the Keith L has kindly offered to take over as Race Officer. Suggestions, appeals etc regarding scheduling matters here forward should be addressed directly to Keith.

A beautiful bright day to end the season. Starting from a mark near the silpway, over to a mark in the middle of culmore bay, up to harts, run back to power station. The OD decided to hold 3 short races of two laps. Great to see Joe Kelly racing in his Laser. The third race was shortened to one lap due to dropping wind and diminishing light.

Anton H was DSQ for a starboard infringement in race 2.

Many thanks to George D for being OD and providing the Hot Toddys – a great way to end the season.
