Drum roll please.....

Attention Race Fans!!! (Been a while since you heard that eh? Whoot whoot!)

With the GTA now cleared for COVID Phase 3, we are cleared to start our weeknight racing program forAugust, Sunday racing in Sept/October, and possibly host the infamous Fall War Regatta.

Here’s the deal for August.

-We will race Tuesday and Thursday nights until the end of August
-All classes welcome from all OHSF clubs. If we get enough interest from the cats we can think about a separate start and handicaps
-Races will start promptly at 630 pm and run TIL dusk.
-Expect 3-4 races per evening
-Races are simple windward leeward as shown in the very professional looking diagram below.
-Starts will be 3 minutes. There will be no visual aids (flags) - we use a whistle only.
- you must sail by the committee boat and identify yourself so we can score properly. Last year we had way too many unnamed participants.
-no protests - if you break a rule take your circles
-Wearing PFDs mandatory
-our RC will be made up of students who will be trained on how to set up the course but are not PROs. No abuse will be tolerated - this is meant to be fun so if the line is not perfectly square just take a deep breath
- the Race Director is totally open to bribes to overlook OCS’ and other infractions - just DM me.

First race night is Tuesday August 4th. Be there or be square. Tell your friends...
