Notices, Workshops & Rides: Cat Island Cup Sailing Race
The cat island cup is back! Join us Monday evening for the season kick off of “race night”, the commodore is back in town, the bay is still empty, and the keen competitors have scraped, scrubbed and greased their grubby little race tubs ( the rest of us just stood around making wise cracks) , most importantly the summer is young and there’s no telling from where the wind might blow, so join us at 5 for a barbecue and very official skippers meeting (that’s anyone who knows how to skip for you landlubbers) as we review the non- rules and un- right-0f-ways as well as the wrong-right the way arounds and other such technicalities of the coming race season. This year will see the introduction of official protocols such as last minute handicapping decisions, and ad-hoc winners trophy acceptance speeches ( yes we have a trophy this year). Note all the same rules from previous years still apply, noteably “any contestant who competes too competitively whether competently or not will have their vessel impounded”. See you there!
