Club-organised racing restarts on Sunday 26th July

Club-organised racing restarts on Sunday 26 July, run from the committee boat and with gate starts and under revised Sailing Instructions. In order to stay within the law on gatherings, reduce congestion and maintain social distancing on the slipways, we are splitting the boat park into two zones. Details of the revised launching and recovery arrangements for racing can be found here.

Please continue to be considerate to other members by observing the basic rules:

  • Boats must not be left unattended away from their boat park space
  • As much rigging as possible (and de-rigging) must be completed in your boat park space
  • You must wait if the slipway is fully occupied
  • Trolleys must be left so as to keep the slipways as clear as possible

When coming ashore, if the slipway is busy please wait on the water until there is room to land safely

Race Officer and Timekeeper Briefing Sheets

These instructions have been written on the assumption that the duty race officer has had some experience of racing at Weir Wood Sailing Club.

There are copies of all the relevant briefing sheets in the Race officers Instruction folder in the Race Box and on the Committee boat.
Detailed instructions for entering the race results are in the Race Box instruction folder

We have a range of informational videos available on our YouTube Channel showing instructions for ‘The Committee Boat’, ‘The Start Sequence’ and ‘Laying the Course’.
It is highly recommended that Sunday Race Officers view these videos prior to their club duty.

If after reading these instructions you have any queries please contact the Racing Secretary below.
