21st May – Pursuit Event. Please be at the Clubhouse 08:30hrs to 09:10hrs to book-in.
Pursuit Events are a form of ‘competition’ to challenge sailing skills whereby a course to sail is set to complete within a pre-determined timescale of 100minutes – No sooner and no later. Each boat will set-off at an allotted time; the ‘start’ time will be dependant on the boat characteristics, whereby a boat likely to achieve a better overall performance than other boats will start at a later time leaving the lesser performing boats to start earlier and to get clear ahead of the later starting boats. At the 100minute time the boat nearest to the finish point is deemed the winner. Wine prizes are awarded. A sailing event organised in such a manner gives each participating boat an equal chance of winning – Will it be you..? Please send us an email to confirm your interest in taking part in BMYC Pursuits Events.
