Oban Sailing Club Regatta

This weekend coming is the OSC Regatta with a slightly different format. We have previously run two separate regattas for keelboats and dinghies but the idea this year is to try and combine them so that all those in the club who wish to sail (competitively or socially) can enjoy a single Club Regatta.

 

The format will be as follows – though subject to adjustment according to weather.

 

Saturday 13th August

 

1000 – 1230 DINGHIES: A series of races for dinghies, following our Thursday racing format with two classes for ‘experienced’ and ‘novice’.

 

1430 – 1800: KEELBOATS: A series of races for the keelboats, following our usual Tuesday racing format with a single class.

 

1500 onwards: SOCIAL SAILING: A chance for those not wishing to race to go for a sail similar to Monday Mayhem …. but on a Saturday.

 

Sunday 14th August

 

1000 – 1230 DINGHIES: A series of races for dinghies (‘experienced’ and ‘novice’ classes)

 

1430 – 1700: KEELBOATS: A series of races for the keelboats (single class)

 

Catering Arrangements

 

Saturday

1230 – 1400: Lunch where we will be seeking donations of various sandwiches, bakes, salads from members

 

1800 – 2000: BBQ

 

Sunday

1230 – 1400: Lunch where we will be seeking donations of various sandwiches, bakes, salads from members

 

The bar will of course be open.

 

We hope that this will allow people to sail both dinghies and keelboats if they wish. I anticipate that those not racing will be able to assist/support other events as they are happening, e.g. safety boats, race office, catering etc.

 

In previous years we have charged an entry fee for competing boats. However, this year we will not do that for club boats. You’ve already paid your membership and this is your club regatta. As indicated, we will ask for modest contributions to the lunch table and of course your time and help to run the regatta.

 

More information to come over the next days.
