Hand On Rules Evening
Under the Baton of
Pat Halling
8 pm Wednesday 27 April

Every four years, following the Olympics, ISAF (International Sailing Federation) revise the ‘Racing Rules of Sailing’ that apply for the following four years. The current issue is 2005-2008.

AQSC has copies of the RYA Racing Rules of Sailing and the RYA Handy Guide to the Racing Rulesfor members to use; please DO NOT take away from the club.

Pat will be covering the basic rules, outlining the changes from the previous issue of the rules. It is intended to be an interactive session of interest to absolute beginners and experience racers.

It takes place just before the Mid Thames Trophy event, being held at AQSC, and a good knowledge of the latest rules will be very beneficial.

Start of Season Party
Saturday 27 March
7:30pm for 8pm

Come and join all your friends in the clubhouse and help get the 2005 season off to a flying start with good food and a pint or two.

We have a guest speaking on a surprising subject you should find interesting.

This is not to be missed ! So switch off the TV, come down to the club and re-discover good old fashioned conversation.

Mike (The Commodore) Baker
