After the finale of the Club Championship a fortnight ago, the last the Solway Yacht Club open event of the year started in pleasant somewhat chilly Autumn weather, despite the threat of gales and storms forecast only a few days earlier. This year the one-day “Lakeland and Borders Laser Grand Prix” was held on Saturday, combined with the National 12 Class GUL Water-sports sponsored two-day, 5 race series over the weekend. Club racing continued in the background, making for a busy first day for the Principal Race Officer, Stewart Mitchell and Assistant Lindsay Tosh.
In early 2018 I joined the SYC & came across Lovely Nellie, renamed TUG by myself.
I paid £1000 for her with her mooring tackle & yard trailer.
She looked a bit sad & I was after a therapeutic project.
I have posted a revised version of the Club Championship results on the website (On the Water/Results). For anyone who saw the first version, the changes affected Colin Filer and Ian Purkis. Part of that was an error I made so my apologies. The rest was down to applying the OOD code for those who are prevented from racing due to being either OOD or safety cover. Note that the last two races are weighted to give half points for Super Sunday. For SYC, this does not apply to those with DNC and you will notice a local Sailwave variation called DNC Medal that ensures our local rule is applied.
I have also applied a third discard to a series of twelve races as agreed by the committee. For those who follow such things, the discard profile is now 0,0,0,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,3. This means that for up to three races there is no discard, for four to seven races there is one discard, for eight to eleven races there are two discards and for twelve or more there are three discards.
I will give this version a couple of weeks as provisional before finalising it so please check and let me know if you disagree with anything.
