Message from the OTB Captain

Hi to all sailors – OTB and Keelboat,
As the potential start of the season approaches, the COVID-19 situation has made usual programming difficult. Until we get some clear directions as to when we can resume our usual  sailing, we will be using a more “fluid” approach.  A likely scenario will be that single handed sailing will be an early option,  with multi handed sailing hopefully following shortly afterwards.

The issue we have though is that the start boat and the course laying and rescue boats require at least two people on board. With this in mind our intrepid Principal Race Officer, Geoff Eldridge, has put forward the idea of a “Patrol Boat Bubble” where a permanent race team is rostered on for the first part of the season. To this end, we are looking for volunteers to take on this role - possibly some of the members who participated in the Race Officer course last week, sailors from multi crewed yachts or even Keelboaters who would like to get their feet wet.

We are looking for about 4-5 volunteers.
Anyone interested please contact either
Ross Martin             0467 000 442    or
Peter Chipperfield   0402 231 782
