Just a reminder that we are hosting the Laser Masters Autumn Championships next weekend. The Masters are Laser Sailors aged 33 + and have been regular visitors to Pevensey Bay over the years, last sending 135 boats to the National Championships held here in 2015. We’re hoping to welcome 60-80 dinghies next weekend and seek to give them the renowned Pevensey Bay SC welcome. They will be arriving Saturday morning and will be sailing 12pm to c 4pm Saturday over 3 races We need members please to help with the early morning dinghy drop off, car parking and then beach party, some in wet gear to launch and recover the lasers, especially if it is windy. In the evening we are hosting a BBQ at7pm, for which members are welcome to attend and mingle with the Laser sailors. We’ll need people to help run the bar please and collect glasses, take out empty cans bottles etc.
On Sunday Racing starts at 10.30 am and the three races will be finished mid-afternoon, again we’ll need beach party support to help launch and recover dinghies. Please post here if you can help in any way or drop me an email email@example.com
Running and event such as this take a number of months planning. The hard work is rewarded by the satisfaction we get in providing the sailors with great racing and of course the financial contribution that event makes allowing us to maintain the club infrastructure, buy club training boats, subsidise training etc, benefiting all the members. I’m afraid as a result of this major event there won’t be any club sailing next weekend. Cadets restart on the 9th Sept and we will also host our Autumn open day – so please invite your friends who would like a taster sail and a good look around the club.
