Announcement of Commencement of the Clubs Cruiser Racing Season

May 21, 2021 6:06 pm

In a letter circulated to members on May 18th the Club Commodore, Sean Norris announced the commencement of the club’s cruiser racing season with the first race being the First Commodores’ Race on June 12th.

Your committee has put together a programme that will see the fleet race as one fleet but with scoring under the Progressive ECHO Handicap system that has been in operation for several years and also under a blend of IRC and Standard ECHO Handicap as produced by the ISA. The latter scoring will use a boats IRC Handicap where available otherwise the ISA Standard ECHO Handicap for the boat will be used. This will give boats an indication of how they would fare under the IRC system as the standard ECHO is effectively more or less the same as a boats IRC Handicap.

The clubs’ calendar can be found here & the clubs’ course card can be found here.

We will be trialing some new courses over the season so brush up on your navigation!

The sailing instructions will be issued shortly.
