NEXT EVENT THIS WEEKEND 15-16 FEB 2014 CLEVELAND SAILING CLUB
Our next event on the SEQ SUPER SERIES is at Cleveland Sailing Club. The club has a strong fleet of NACRA;s including 5.8's and 4.5's. This year they have put on another special event for us with a very interesting saturday racing program with 4 sprint races planned which is a great opportunity to get in some starting and other race craft practice.
Details of the event as follows:
"Saturday we have in the system 4 sprint races of a duration of approx 20 mins each race on a compressed course, so sometimes 4/5 laps are needed.
This always makes for some heated calls and a frenzied start line owing to the fact of a short race,
Sunday the plan is for 2 races of approx 50/60 mins each race,
Courses for the sprints are set so spin cats can race them, usually a rectangle with a short reach across the top, and then downwind to the bottom mark, then short reach across, then windward to the top mark.
Sundays races will be windward return, however if wind speeds are below 12 kts we will be setting an offset mark, and doing a triangle, sausage, triangle, sausage, finish, course.
In winds of above 12 kts we set windward returns as the spin cats have a few issues with the offset mark in anything above 15kts.
All going well there maybe 2 Nacra f18s from the club, along with some 5.8s, 14sq, and 5.0.
So it should be a good weekend to sail, usually breeze is from the E/Se at that time of the year,
Let me know if you require more info,
Also the club now has a pin system for the front gate, so if any travellers need access after hours they will need to contact Lex Stanbridge email@example.com "
In previous years the club has allowed camping on site. If you need this please contact Lex directly.
Also we will be doing a raffle draw again. To be in the draw you just need to be a member of the association and be at the event.
