A Message from your Rear Admiral Keelboats Kieran O’Connell
The start of the Keelboat racing season is upon us already, and 6 boats have already been hard at work competing in the Crosshaven Boatyard April league See results HERE.
Also our traveling boats have been doing really well down in the Kinsale Spring series, with one days racing to go next Saturday we have leaders in Class 1 Denis Murphy on Nieulargo, Class 2 Kieran Colin on Oracle IV and a second place in White sail Batt O’Leary on Sweet Dreams, see results HERE
Thursday the 03rd of May sees the start to our mid week leagues, and first up is the UK Sailmakers May League, looking forward to seeing you all on the water for that.
On the Friday night the 04th we are starting the Friday night leagues, but we are also hosting a new members evening in the club and I am asking for as many boats to compete on this evening as possible and bring some of our new members out on the water and help show them a good time in the newly refurbished bar afterwards. Please email me if you can take some new members out for some fun sailing.
Keelboat weekly reports will resume on the first week of May to keep you all up to date on what happening and what on for the coming week.
Also Mike McCann has been working with the committee over the winter to get us up to speed on the new results program, A big thanks to Mike and Wendy for all the work on this. Please be patient with us as we get to grips with the new software.
Mel Collins and all the Keelboat committee team have been working hard all winter to develop the new Club handicap system and see below for more details about it. any queries contact Mel on firstname.lastname@example.org
