2018 spring racing is not that far away! Time to get your boats ready for another great year of on-the-water sailing/racing.
We will conduct our annual mandatory Skipper's meeting on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 at 1000 at Don Snelgrove's home: 805 Scenic Place, Crownsville, MD.
Many of our members have begun to use the RaceQs smartphone application to track their race. It's free, simple to use, and allows for all particpants to view a fully integrated race picture. It is also a great learning tool and we have received absolutely great feedback on its capabilities. On the Race Events tab to the right of each completed race, you will now see that you can click on a RaceQs replay of each race as well as clicking on the results. It is a great learning tool.
If you can't see the Race Events tab on our website, please create a username on the LogIn page and you will be able to see Race Events and results by next day.
Note that one of our boats, Himmel, will be departing on 1 May for a transatlantic crossing and cruise through north Africa and the Mediterranean. The crew will be primarily the same sailors that you see on Himmel each Wednesday evening. She will miss most of the 2018 racing season here on Round Bay. You should see her out racing in April before departing and possibly back for the last Sep/Oct races. Check out the December Spinsheet article, pages 51-52, for more information:
