Race Committee Consortium

 

Monday evening (August 14th) we had the second RC Consortium meeting! We had 17 TSS members in attendance. While that is great, we need to entice a larger selection of our members to attend. All TSS Members should check their schedules and try to attend whenever they can.

 

Bob Sardo did a quick presentation for what makes up an RC team. It was informative and gave everyone an idea for the different positions that are needed to cover all the details of a Race Committee. Next meeting we will start discussing additional details and skills for RC work.

 

Matt covered the dates for the 4 races that TSS has scheduled this month. We need to get volunteers for every one of these races........if you have time available, please contact me.

 

Club race:  Sat., Aug 19 - Henry Morse has signed up! We need someone to handle the Lead position, and another person in the Flag position.

Mutt race: Sun., Aug. 27 - Susan Bishop is taking the Lead position, but we need a couple of extra hands for the Flag position.

Club race: Sat., Sept. 2 - Need some volunteers to help out!

Mutt race: Sun., Sept. 10 - Need some volunteers to help out!

 

After talking scheduling, Matt did a brief discussion on sailing upwind using wind angles to the most benefit and how this impacts what the RC does. Very good stuff!

 

RC Consortium meetings are the second Monday night of every month at 7:30p! Next meeting is Sept. 11th. Everyone write on their calendars now. Lol.
