Aldridge Model Boat Club extends a very warm welcome to you for the 2018 Footy Open event a new venue on the Footy Champions League calendar.
Come and enjoy racing your Footy at Aldridge Sailing Club and help us to create some fun in a friendly, but competitive atmosphere.
Sid Sims will be the RO and racing will be conducted using the new RRS 2017-2020 modified by the 2017 MYA Standard Sailing Instructions. The current 2009 Footy Class Rules will apply. We would ask you to limit the size of your biggest rigs to comply with the ‘Experimental Footy rig Template ‘. The relevant notices are as follows:
REGISTRATION and measurement check 08.40 to 09.30 hours.
BRIEFING – this will start at approximately 09.40 hours.
RACING TIMES – the first race will start soon after the briefing at approximately 10.00 hours – no race will start after 15.00 hours and any race in progress at 15.30 hours will be abandoned.
Please make sure that your correct sail numbers are clearly displayed on your mainsails: just the last two digits of your boat’s registration number. When you bring your boat for registration, please make sure that it will fit in the ‘Footy measurement box’, as required by class rules.
Prizes will be awarded for top 3 skippers, there will be the first of the ‘novICE’ trophies for novice competitors that have not finished in the top 3 in the Footy open events in the last 2 years.
