Sailing Days

Apart from no water on the 4th March we had 42 available Sailing Days for the rest of the Year. For the first time we also had water available for all of December due to the Pump being controlled automatically during High Tides. There were 7 cancelled days due Adverse Weather and 5 days used for General Sailing, Marathon, AGM etc. We achieved 22 Scored I.O.M Races and 7 Fiesta Races.
A new BIC 245 Rescue boat was purchased this year and first went into service on October 14th.
The AGM was held on the 18th November 10:30 at The Amsterdam, 467 Upper Shoreham Rd, BN4 35WQ.
Xmas Lunch, also at the Amsterdam, was held 9th December.

The 17th One Metre Race was held on September 16th 2012.
The variable start time system was again used.
We seem to have set the variable start times fairly accurately as nearly all boats finished together
BUT the better Skippers still came in at the front.
We also tried our our new BIC 245 rescue boat, even Rob tried it.
