Optimist Summer BBQ.

BBQIt’s that time of year, the sun is shining, it’s time for the annual Optimist BBQ! This Saturday at the dinghy centre.

The plan is as follows for Oppy Sailors:

11.45am: Rigged and ready.

11.50am: short briefing of the day’s activities.

12.00pm SHARP:  Launch the fleet and hold 2 races on the bank.

2.30pm approx:  We’ll bring the Sailors and Oppies back to the club. The Sailors will have time to de-rig, put their boats away and change their clothes.

3.00pm . We’ll bring the Sailors to White Bay on Adrielle or Nemo with one or two support ribs. The kids can have a swim, play rugby, soccer etc,

5.00pm. Back to the Club for a BBQ at the dinghy centre for adults and children.


The Durcan’s have kindly sponsored the hot food so a big “thank you” to them.

We would be very grateful if Parents could bring a salad along with them.

There will a charge of €5 per adult and €2 per child to cover the cost of soft drinks, snacks, etc.

It should be a fantastic day so we look forward to seeing as many Oppie Sailors and Parents as possible.

The 2014 RCYC Optimist Fleeces will be for sale on Saturday at the BBQ. Please contact Sandie if you wish to purchase one.

Tim Lucas of Lucas Products and Services has kindly supplied us with sail number plaques. There are 3 plaques for every Optimist in the racing fleets. One can be stuck onto the Oppy and the other two onto the trolley. These are very useful and make retrieval of Oppys after racing much easier and more efficient as the trolleys are clearly identifiable. These will be on sale for €5 for a set of 3 and we would strongly encourage all parents to buy a set.

So, let’s hope the weather holds! See you all on Saturday.
