SD Training Day – 27 April 2019

14 Scottish skippers enjoyed a training day at Forfar Loch on Saturday the 27th April. The forecast was for rain in the first half of the morning clearing as the day progressed with a moderate easterly breeze which is exactly what transpired. 

It was particularly encouraging to see some very new members having only taken up our sport in the past couple of months. Obviously the newer you are to radio sailing the more there is to learn but even the most experienced sailors took something away from the day.

Thanks to all who attended, those who contributed and to Forfar Sailing Club for opening up their main clubroom for us making for an ideal venue. 

A full report (by Tich Summers) can be viewed here (pdf file) and the photographs below have been kindly provided by Nick Slane.

The latest version (9.5) of the Race Scoring Spreadsheet has been uploaded and can be found on the “Downloads” page. On the “PRINT-OUT” tab, there was an issue “hiding” unwanted columns and rows and this has now been resolved.
