It’s now mid March (although looking out at the remnants of yesterday’s snow it doesn’t feel much like it!) and I’m conscious of the fact that I need to get a race programme out!
The draft race programme I published a few weeks back didn’t get the response I’d hoped for. Just two replies were received – both making suggestions but also happy enough to stick with the status quo. I assume therefore, that the vast majority of members are happy with the current situation so, for this season at least, we will stick with this and the programme will be as follows.
2018 Stella Worlds
Race 1 – SYH Classic Regatta Saturday 09th June
Race 2 – SYH Classic Regatta Saturday 09th June
Race 3 – SYH Classic Regatta Sunday 10th June
Race 4 – Mersea Week Sunday 26th August
Race 5 – Mersea Week Monday 27th August
Race 6 – Mersea Week Tuesday 28th August
Race 7 – SYH/HPYC Autumn Classic Regatta Saturday 1st September
Race 8 – SYH/HPYC Autumn Classic Regatta Sunday 2nd September
Herewith, at long last, the first draft of what could be the 2018 Race Programme including suggested additional events. This was born out of a discussion at the AGM regarding adding more events to the calendar, but having less to count, thus spreading the geography as it were. I really do need responses on this as we need to get something in place. If I don’t hear back we will default to the programme as in previous years.
My opinion, for what it’s worth? It’s way too congested from late August with nothing in the Summer. I think we should stick with what we have…
