Sail-World.com : Duo Series - A new double handed series for the 2011 season

Duo Series - A new double handed series for the 2011 season

'Lymington Harbour - Duo Series - Double Handed IRC Racing'   

Duo Series - The Club has responded to requests from some of our existing two handed sailors to run a five race series, with one discard, over the summer of 2011. The races will be open to members and non-members. All the boats will race as one class using the IRC handicap system, and the ISAF Category 4 safety standard.

It is hoped that using courses with relatively long legs and a minimum number of marks will encourage those less experienced in two handed sailing and possibly, some 'cruisers' who are used to sailing two handed, provided they have a rating certificate, and comply with the safety requirements to take part.

All the races will be day races to be held on April 29th, June 4th, June 18th, July 30th and Sept 24th. Please note the race on the Friday Bank Holiday (April 29th) is the day of the Royal Wedding so this race will be a must for those who are looking for an alternative to a day in front of the TV! We understand in certain circles this particular race is already being referred to as the 'Katie Cup'! All the dates are, as far as possible, arranged to avoid clashing with the very successful Royal Southampton series of two handed races

All races will start and finish in the vicinity of the river entrance, with a proposed start time for the races on the 29th April and September 24th at 14.30 Hrs. The remainder of the races will start at 11.30Hrs. It is intended that we will all be back in time for an early evening drink in the club.

Entry will be free to Club members and members of Lymington Town Sailing Club and The Royal Solent Yacht Club. For all others, the entrance fee will be £10 per race or a discounted £40 for the series.
