Subject: NOTICE OF INTERCLUB REGATTA $100 FIRST PRIZE TO WINNING CLUB – Sunday 2nd March
Hi Guys, we have an Interclub Regatta coming up at Onehunga on the 2nd March.
I hope this format creates a lot of fun and enjoyment for all participants, it’s not all about winning, it’s also about participation and everyone having an enjoyable time.
The main emphasis is about getting all of the clubs together at one venue to show off IOM Radio Sailing at a venue where there is a generally quite a lot of public foot traffic making it ideal for promoting Radio Sailing to potential new sailors.
The format will be as follows:
My hope is that each of the local clubs get behind this so that we can have a team each from NMMS, North Shore and Gulf Harbour.
The team with the lowest number of participants sets the number of top place getter’s we’ll count for the $100 prize money (plus some other spot prizes for Mug of the Day, Sportsman of the Day and First Place). If for example one club only has 4 entries, the top 4 sailors for each club on the day count towards the final score.
However there is some incentive for the club with the highest number of participants.
Each club will be able to deduct from their score the number of participants they enter. If your club enters say 10 sailors you will get 10 points deducted from your combined score at the end of the day. If its close this could make all the difference.
The lowest combined score wins:
Sunday 2nd March 2014: 1pm-4pm Onehunga Lagoon – Church Street Onehunga.
Format – 8 races
If you are interested in participating please let me know by return e-mail.
It’s FREE entry to sail.
