Sailing Instructions are now posted to the event website for the up coming 2018 J24 NSW Championships being held this weekend.
All should note, as mentioned in the NOR and SI’s, unmeasured sails shall be presented for measurement to the J24SSF Measurer prior to 1600 Thursday 1 November 2018.
One week to go!
Currently 12 entries, the Etchell Worlds have taken some usual supporters however the field is looking good with Club, State, Australian and World Champions rounding out the field.
The organisers do ask all entries trailering and sailing in to email firstname.lastname@example.org when they are expected to arrive at the club. Friday nights can get a little hectic at Cronulla Sailing Club so your patience is asked for.
A big thanks to all the teams committing to the Championships thus far.
So what a difference a weekend makes….
Currently standing at 11 entries and still awaiting some noticeable contenders from the harbour, including the bastion of J24 Racing in NSW, the stables of Terry Wise and Pacific Sailing School…..
So, Cat-7 Plus requirements at Cronulla. What this mean is we need to ensure all boats carry the Cat-7 Plus safety equipment, to race on the waters of Bate Bay. This requirement is based around the fact that if you were to keep running on your spinnaker in a westerly, you’d reach the land of the long white cloud (Bring a sandwich)…..
For visiting boats, during your registration process can you present your current Cat-7 form, then a member of the CSC Safety Team will confirm you have the extra items as listed on the NOR.
Second reminder, to all Southern Sydney Fleet members is that membership can be paid at registration or prior via our online services.
Thirdly, and this will be reinforced at the race briefing, the best spot for a pick up by ambulance should that be necessary while racing, is the Royal Motor Yacht Club – Port Hacking on (02) 9523 9300
Last point, after this Friday all entries received will receive a late entry fee. I encourage you to have those ducks in a row and enter this week.
2 Fridays to go…….
Big reminder entries close with effect 1700 on Friday 26 October 2018, entries received after that time will be subject to a late entry fee.
Below lists out current entries, I’m certain this will expand greatly in the next week.
AUS-4795, Waterborne Again, B Lee
AUS-4475, Stamped Urgent, D Mckay
AUS-4436, Vertigo, C Hood
AUS-5058, Wildfire, R Thomson
Please also remember, unmeasured sails must be presented for measurement to the J24SSF Measurer prior to 1600, Thursday 1 October 2018.
I hope you all have a great weekend and are utilising the entry link here to get your boat on the list above.
As of today, 3 Fridays untill we will be at the Cronulla Sailing Club, jockeying for position with the Friday punters and Twilight racers.
The entry site is open and ready to get you sorted for the Championships.
If you are needing accomodation over the weekend, even those making the journey from…. over the bridge, that big one not the Captian Cook Bridge please let us know.
Ive got good intel that the rain will be finished. The 28 day forcast tells me nil-low chance of rain!!!! So come and enjoy the sun at Cronulla.
Gather your mates and lets work on making this the most competitive J24 fleet since the Worlds. (Not asking much…..)
