For anyone that wasn’t at the AGM last week, here are the Sunday League results for 2017-18:
Results are calculated using each participant’s best 10 results, where 14 points are given for 1st place, 13 for 2nd and so on.
“A” series races are the ones starting at 10:30 and “B” series those starting just after midday.
Highlighted dates indicate races or events that are not part of the Sunday League calendar, for example cup races (gold), training (red) or free sailing (green); the Summer season was shortened due to blue-green algae.
Despite the lake being closed for several months due to blue-green algae, our Wednesday afternoon Ancient Mariners league managed 25 races this season, with just 9 points separating the top 3:
Final results were calculated using the same system as our Sunday leagues, with each participant’s score based on their best 10 results, where 14 points are given for 1st place, 13 for 2nd and so on.
Just a quick reminder that we’ll be starting a little later than usual this weekend, following a 1 minute silence at 11:00 to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
So, please make sure you get to the boat park in plenty of time to ensure that everything’s setup and ready to go by 11 o’clock, and we’ll get the first race underway as soon as possible afterwards.
Don’t forget that all on-water participants at CSC will require a wet or dry suit from 4 November 2018 until 24 February 2019.
If you’re looking to buy a new wet or dry suit for the Winter, there are lots of bargains to be had online right now at sites like Amazon and Wetsuit Outlet, but it’s important to make sure you get one that’s suitable for the conditions.
For a wetsuit, that means a 5mm or thicker full length suit, which includes suits labelled “3/5mm”, “4/5mm” or similar, meaning they have slightly thinner arms to help you to move more freely.
You may also want to consider buying a rash vest to go underneath, which not only prevent your wetsuit rubbing and chafing, but also help keep you just a little bit warmer.
No wet or dry suit means no sailing, no exceptions.
We often have lots of members complaining about getting cold feet around this time of year, so if you’re suffering from chilly toes, we highly recommend getting yourself some neoprene wetsuit socks like these.
