Sailing Program and Social Events  March 2018 - March 2019 updated 2Sep17

As we have been given a date for the 2018 Chestnut Sunday I created this draft program so there was a place to record it. It is a copy of the 2017
program with all the calendar dates updated to 2018. Quite a few dates are known and fixed and their Text is normal size. All events that haven't been
finalised yet, mainly AQSC, are double small text; they will return to normal size when dates have been finalised.

Note that this year the RYA PTBO (Push The Boat Out)  promotion is all of May and Chestnut Sunday is the May Bank Holiday weekend. Should our RYA PTBO Open Weekend be the following weekent (12-13 May, a week earlier than last year).

Sailing Activities Details 2018

All races will start on time; races will not be delayed because competitors are not ready.
The 12:00 am race will generally be a Spring or Autumn Series race.
The 2:00 pm activity will be Training, a Fun activity, or Cruising (TFC) with emphasis on giving less experienced members a better sailing experience including sailing with different boats and helm/crew. On the first Sunday of the month it should relate to the newcomers event.
The 3:30 pm race will generally be a SpA (Spring/Autumn), a Summer and Laser or Bosun, or 2 Sprint Series races; After BST ends it will start soon after the 2:00pm event finishes so boats can be put away in the light.
Wednesday afternoon Sailing will be from 3:30pm starting on 2 May and ending on 26 September; the bar will open when sailing finishes.
The Cundy Trophy long distance race will take place, on a day when the weather is suitable, concurrent with a scheduled Sunday afternoon race.
