Racing at Keowee Sailing Club – The Anti-Virus!
Our spring Hot Ruddered Bums series was defeated by the pandemic, but our 2020 summer series begins Saturday, May 23rd as originally scheduled… Except we’re giving it a different name, in recognition of the anti-virus format: Instead of Simmer, it’s the Fathom series!
Details are in the Fathom Notice Of Race, below. Sailing Instructions are also posted – same as always for series racing, just renamed to match NOR.
To summarize: Same dates, same times as our scheduled Simmer series, but no on-shore skippers meetings, and no on-shore post-race gatherings. Skippers meeting is on the water at 1:00, under Come-Within-Hail around the RC boat. During launch and retrieval, everybody stays a fathom apart. We’ll still have scoring and awards, but the emphasis will be more on fun and recreational relief for those who wish to partake.
An RC volunteer sign-up sheet will be posted at the usual place on the website, but only for a couple of single-handed mark setters for now. We’ll evolve RC staffing as we go forward.
So come on out for the 2020 Fathom series, starting Saturday, May 23rd! See you on the water…
