Classics 2012/2013 Summer Series Race 2 SI’s and Handicaps (Posted 18.10.12)

Dear Skippers and Crews of the Classic 2012/2013 Summer Series

Attached are the Race 2 Sailing Instructions plus the Race 2 entries and their allocated handicaps.

The race will be conducted by the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria under the control of Race Director, David LeRoy.

As part of the celebrations to mark 121 years of continuous service to the marine community, The Anchorage Marina, located on The Strand on Williamstown foreshore, provided a perpetual trophy to the Classic Yacht Association to award to the yacht that takes out corrected time honours.

This Race 2 of our Summer Series has been nominated as that race and is to be named as the Anchorage Marine Classic Yacht Challenge.

The Anchorage Marina people have issued an invitation to those yachts taking part in Race 2 to visit the marina after the race either on water after the race or drop by after pack up.

Predicted sailing conditions for Sunday look to be light.

Cup Regatta time is fast approaching. Full on Regatta work will begin after this race. To start your own Regatta process,  Submit your Regatta entry and your plans for the Regatta social functions in pronto.

Don’t forget to correctly dress that light of your life, Association pennants will be available at Royals after the race. For those who cannot make Royals after the Race 2, use the Pennant order form available on our web site or let the Handicapper know direct by email. A pennant, @$65.00 ea, will be forwarded to you post haste.

Two more notes

First is Race 5 of the current Summer Series has been officially re-scheduled to be conducted on Feb 17.  HBYC will conduct this race.

The second note is to do with the Associations Annual General Meeting. The best time to conduct this AGM has been deemed to be after the Race 3 on November 25 at Royals. This date allows the Association to comply with the Incorporated Associations Regulations.

Next year will be a big one in terms of administration.  There’s new Government regulations for Incorporated Associations about to be promulgated that require a rework of our rules (Constitution) as a first up.

Finally don’t forget the renewal your Association membership subscription.

So Sunday 10:30am it’s all go.
Regards to all
