Sail Past and Official Clubhouse Opening

Saturday 5th July 

The intention is to have a sail past the front of the club before the official opening ceremony.

The muster area for the start of the sail past will be indicated by a red or green board in front of the Club Battery.

A Red board indicates the muster area will be at Club Race Mark 1 to the east of the club.

A Green board indicates the muster area will be at Club race Mark 4 to the west of the club.

Boats should muster at the appropriate mark at approximately 1330.

A cannon will be fired at the Club Battery at 1345.

On this signal boats should proceed towards the finish line at the club battery passing between the club and both the red and green marks.

After finishing boats should return to the marina to get back ashore in time for the Opening Ceremony at 1500.

There will be photographers ashore and afloat taking pictures of the occasion.

Any other photographs that people take of the sail past and ashore will be gratefully received to be displayed on the club website.
