Nearly 40 Sailors at Optimist Burns Trophy

Close to forty sailors (across gold, silver, bronze & copper fleets) made it to the start line for the opening day of the September league/Burns trophy last Saturday and we would hope to see a similar number this coming Saturday(weather permiting).

Darren O Keeffe and Frank Thompson will act as PRO’s aboard ‘Nemo’ and first gun is again scheduled for 2.30pm. There will be a short briefing for all sailors @ 1.40pm sharp in the dinghy centre and will aim to launch immediately after this. Regarding rescue cover , Linda O Keeffe will take RIB 1, Jimmy Nyhan will take RIB 2 and Brian Jones will take charge of RIB 3. A fourth RIB will be manned by a parent from the laser/feva class. Should you wish to act as RIB assistant to any of the above, please register through the dutyman roster as soon as possible.

Finally, we have a number of junior sailors travelling to the rescheduled Crosbie Cup this weekend in Lough Derg and we wish them every success.
