Inshore and offshore sailing

Time to ramp it up a gear and head offshore in the coming weeks. If your keen for some excitement and want to race, now is the time to throw your hat in the ring as we work up to some more challenging offshore events.  You will need a wet weather jacket and pants if you have them and a polar fleece as it can get cool offshore. I have all the safety gear required. If your worried about seasickness there are plenty of natural and pharmacy drugs, ointments, bands etc, so just take what works for you, take it early and regularly and don't sweat it....we've all been there.

Crew positions available for:
24 Mar 12 (Sat) - Inshore Sternchaser race. Meet at Salamander at 1100h so we can do some more practice. Our Handicap should be 1.000 which equates to equal time, so we should start racing at 1300h.
31 Mar 12 (Sat) - Offshore Port Stephens to Newcastle. Meet at Salamander 1000 h and arrive at NCYC around 1800h for some well earned drinks and some excellent nosh.
01 Apr 12 (Sun) Offshore Newcastle to Port Stephens. Depart NCYC at 0900h and arrive Salamander around 1600h.
