At Bowmoor, racing is held every Sunday. Racing is rarely cancelled, though it does depend on wind (no wind or force 8 usually makes the OOD think twice).
When there are three races, the third race is currently a handicap race in which helmsmen have a
personal adjustment to their PYS which changes from one race to the next according to previous performance.
There is a new means of allocating adjustments for new entrants; those who have sailed before continue with their
last adjustment. For more details click here.
Also during the summer there is a Wednesday evening series which is still keenly raced, but a better introduction for the less experienced sailor.
Do you arrive at your Duty and feel a little unsure of what is expected of you? Even for the sailors,
being OOD or in the Safety Boat can be a challenge. Here are some guides that will help you on your Duty day.
