DOLPHYN DIARY NO: 16th May 2017 – 207
Read your Dolphyn Carefully for all the Sailing & Club events on the Calendar.
Wednesday: Race 3 of the DHL Twilight series of 5 races – start time 17:45. Forecast: light southerly. Flat water – should be good, particularly for the smaller, lighter boats. Not quite Miura weather – but then a forecast is only …!
SATURDAY 20TH MAY – NEW HELM
New helm (no restrictions on crew) – start 14:30. Forecast: light south easter/wester depending on which forecast is believed!! Good weather for those newbies on the stick.
I will be attending a course at Royal Cape regarding an alternative handicapping system (ORD) that could, potentially, even out the present significant bias of the RRD system towards smaller boats – particularly in lighter winds. ORD allows for a choice of light, medium or heavy winds before calculating corrected times. Ken Balman will act as Race Officer – ably assisted by Simone.
Despite minimal wind initially, the “Mothers’ Sail” last Saturday eventually produced a great afternoon on the water for the fairer sex, oops, “gender”, with a light south easter beyond the lighthouse and flat water for Water Music’s motor into Fish Hoek bay to plot the GPS coordinates of the various “octopus buoys” – for further variety in our race courses.
“Measure Clinic” over the weekend of 20 and 21 May.
