The Saturday Sailing Season commences on Saturday September 6.
We would especially like to encourage our regular Twilight skippers and their crews to join our relatively small Saturday fleet. There are two divisions which will allow competitive and safe racing for any boat from any of the Twilight Divisions. Handicaps will account for boats not wishing to carry spinnakers, skippers will appreciate the generally less crowded conditions with more room on the water to manoeuvre. Marks are laid and sometimes Island courses are used. There are no duty crews as regular starters have been engaged to organise the start and finish.
You may also just choose to compete once a month in the Down Harbour Series or in the 6 race Mick York Series. Dates are detailed on the Season Program on the GFS web site here.
In preparation, please remember that Equipment Audits are a mandatory requirement prior to racing. The date set aside for Saturday competitors is Saturday August 30. Please download and complete the form from the web site. Please initial the equipment required (not tick) and, on the day, have everything laid out for the auditor.
Once again please consider sailing with the GFS Saturday Fleet. It is important that we maintain a strong presence on the water on the weekend.
