LRYC SOD Open Regatta 25/26 July 2014 (organised by the Carroll family, with generous support from others) is going on tour. Sailing will be co-ordinated out of Hodson Bay on the Roscommon shore. An unintended nod to Syd Shine who, I'm told, kept the Club alive for a few years by running sailing out of the Bay.
Boats arrive from various locations, including LRYC. Weather dependent BYOB in the harbour or drinks up in the hotel bar. The slipway in LRYC will be kept clear to allow SODs to launch Friday and Saturday morning. Possible tow on Saturday morning (Early) over to the Bay, depends on necessity/wind direction and speed. Of course there is a functioning slipway in Hodson Bay.
Race one and two (back to back) will start at 11:45am sharp. Lunch, sailors are encouraged to bring a packed lunch, alternatively the hotel has a bar. Afternoon, return passage race to Killinure Chalets. Evening Dining ... still being 'figured out', information to follow.
Race six and seven 11:00am sharp - Syd's Sunday Morning Races. Lunch, as above. Race eight and nine 14h00, Prize Giving ASAP after, no later than 16h00, SOD tow back to the Club
Trophies (the spoils): The Centreboard Cup, The Passage Race Trophy, Prize for Syd Sunday Morning Races. This is an ideal opportunity to get in some races a week ahead of the LRYC Annual Regatta.
