On Sunday, March 20th at 1 p.m. we’ll begin our five-week warm-up series. These races won’t be scored for low point awards but they will contribute to the overall “batting average” score for the year and the 60% participation requirement for that calculation.
As you can see from the picture taken last night and posted above, there is still an inch or so of ice on the water in Holiday Harbor but we think with the warm weather in the forecast for the next few days that it will be gone by Sunday.
The water in front of the yacht club is free of ice so we have a back-up location if necessary.
Remember to wear your smelly old winter socks on Sunday so that you can throw them in the fire for the traditional “Burning of the Socks” ceremony! We’ll aim to have the fire going by 12:30 so we can get the racing started promptly at 1 p.m.
The following week, March 27th, we’ll resume our normal 2 p.m. start time until “big boat” racing begins and we move to the docks at CYC.
