The Racing is once again in Regional Teams, rather than in Clubs. Regional captains have been appointed, as set out in the notice of race. They will be in touch with clubs to recruit teams. It is hoped that at least a couple of representatives from every club will be in a regional team….. so that they can be present to represent their club at the AGM which follows on when the racing finishes.
Coxes Briefing 9:20 am. First race 10 am.
The course for the sprint races will be from a start line perpendicular to the shore at one end of the sailing club ground, to a turning line at the other end of the sailing club, and back to the sailing club finish transit. Total race length will be around 500m. There will be 350m straight line’ picnic class’ races for single person boats. There will also be two longer St Ayles skiff races of somewhere between 1500m and 3000m, with crews sharing turning buoys. Exact course for the longer races will be advised on the day.
The St Ayles skiff events will, once again, be raced by regional teams, rather than individual SCRA member clubs. This should allow rowers from more clubs to take part, and ensure that their representatives are present for the dAGM later in the day (!) The regional teams will be chosen by the following Regional Captains: Club captains to please contact their regional team captains to advise what members of your club will be able to attend.
Northeast- Captains: Wendy Clements (Portsoy) and Caroline Dunbar (Burghead)
