I have been talking to a lot of people who have been interested in going sailing on the ICs, so I encourage you to join us at Nanny Cay's FREE IC24 dock (big round of applause to Nanny Cay) at 3:30pm this and every Saturday for good, fun sailing. Remember, the more cold beer you bring, the better your chances on quickly getting on a boat! Anyone is welcome, so please tell your friends, we'll always make room for new sailors.
The ICs are kicking off the TortolaExpress Spring Series this Saturday 18th April. The series will run for four Saturdays in a row the 18th, 25th (Pizza Pursuit Race), 2nd and 9th.
First Prize will be a $50 Amazon.com gift certificate from TortolaExpress (Includes a free one year subscription if winner has no current TortolaExpress parcels account only).
A Sportsmanship prize will be a $100 Amazon.com gift certificate from TortolaExpress (Includes a free one year subscription if winner has no current TortolaExpress parcels account only). This prize will be given to the boat having the most fun, involving the most new crew, the least protests, and generally being the best behaved crew off and on the course.
Your team must participate in the Pizza Pursuit race (on an IC24) to be eligible to win a prize. Other Saturdays are optional, but if you don't race you accumulate a lot of points!
If you have Race Committee duty during the series, you may be eligible to remove 1-5 points off your total score based on performance. Your performance as race committee will be rated by competitors at the bar after racing and your points removed will be reflected on your race committee performance. You will get an additional 10 points removed from your score should you start the first race square and on time, and you can get average points if you are not able to put a team together because you are race committee.
First Start each Saturday of the series will be at 4:30 Sharp (this excludes the Pizza Pursuit race which will have it's own start. Make sure to go to the Yacht Club to register for this Friday 24th around 7ish). Remember that the race committee will be looking to get 10 points off their score by starting on time.
Roosta is first for race committee. Remember to please contribute something to Richard if/when you use Cheetah for race committee as he normally only gets wear and tear. To see the list of committee dates see the post under beer can racing on www.ic24.org/forum
See you all Saturday!
