Dear <<First Name>>,
1. FLEET CAPTAINS
. Tony Woods and Peter Young have agreed to take on Laser Fleet Captaincy duties, together with Shaun Curran. Shaun is for the moment happy to manage the web site, Tony is happy to organise informal training, Peter will try and attend meetings when he can.
We are planning informal mutual coaching/training sessions on Wednesdays through the summer, from about 4.00 pm i.e. before the Wednesday Evening race. Opportunity for less experienced sailors and Youth sailors to talk to the more experienced and do some on the water training. If enough people come down we’d like to try “Buddy Racing” where teams of 2 (the most experienced teamed with the least experienced,) have to race round a course, and finish next to each other! (The idea that the more experienced sailor will coach the less experienced one- could go the other way round though I suppose!)
3. QM OPEN MEETING
on the 31st May. Start 12.00, Briefing at 11.00. 4 races back to back.
Worlds Entries now open. Also don’t forget Masters event at Newhaven on 7th/8th June and Masters Nats 18th-20th July. Congratulations to our man Dave Freeman who came 2nd overall at the Grafham event, beaten only by the legendary Alan Davis.
