John English Regatta December 22
New Year’s Day Regatta January 1
Winter Series Depends on ice situation
ICE: It is anyone’s guess as to whether the Navesink River will freeze this winter. There was no significant ice last season. Of course there was the day we had slush ice out past the pilings. We still sailed and it was interesting to hear the hull crunching through the ice.
GENERAL: We sail out in front of MBC, and most boats return to the dock between races. There is a maximum of six races per day. Sailors are not allowed to sail more than two consecutive races which makes boats available. Sailors must wear life jackets. We try to start races at noon but that slips a bit sometimes due to weather.
RACE COMMITTEE: The sailors are the Race Committee so please help out when you are not sailing a race. We are also the ones that need to put the RC equipment in an MBC outboard, and also launch the boat. Equipment needed: two marks, Ollie, yellow start flag, individual and general recall flags, clipboard with paper and pen.
