Centreboard Racing Season, 3 September Round 1

Spring Centreboard Season
The season calendar is currently being drafted with the first race of the Centreboard Series scheduled for Sunday 3 September, 1300hrs. Racing is open to all ages. 

Two Twilight Sailing events will be conducted where CB families are invited to participate on fellow members boats in the Thursday Twilight Series:

  • Thursday 16 November 2017
  • Thursday 15 February 2018

Details of the season program can be viewed here.
Entry and race documents will be published shortly. 

Volunteers are essential to  running a successful season program, if you are available to assist or which to learn more either speak to Chris Attwood on the CB Lawn or sign up to Dutyman here.  There is a Club Race Official Course scheduled at RMYC on the 23rd September, this is a great course to learn the ropes prior to setting on board a committee vessel or support boat. To register for this Australian Sailing Course click here.




INVITATION TO ALL
Join us at 10:30 on Sunday the 3rd of September on the Centreboard Lawn when Phil from DeckHardware will talk about sailing products, how to choose them, how to use them and how to maintain them. 

  • Do you know what to use and where on your boat? 
  • Do you know how to look after your rope and fittings?
  • When you coil your rope does it end up in knots? There is a trick to help avoid this!
  • Did you know there are types of Dyneema® fibre which then becomes different types of Dyneema® Rope?

One of the interesting things about hardware design over the last few years has been the development in rope technology.  Previously block ranges faced an unchanging demand and lightness was the only desirable characteristic, however this is no longer the case. 
 
Phil will be discussing the different loads on your blocks, depending on the application you are using them for and where they are placed in the system.  As well as some of the new products available like Dog Bones.
 
Phil will discuss the different types of rope to help you choose which type to use.  We know this can be a tricky process and often it comes down to the individual sailor and what they like.
