The rain held back for our club closing operations, the AGM and the BBQ this weekend.
Here are the series racing results announced at the meeting.
We ran a total of 52 races in the series this year. 24 skippers participated, including 9 women. We recorded 358 dinghies starting, an average of 6.9 boats at each start. This year, the top end of the fleet was exceptionally competitive, while at the same time other sailors were racing for the first time.
11.1 The scoring system is as follows: The Low Point scoring system of Appendix A for “series longer than a regatta” (Rule A9) will apply to all races official club races completed in the year, of which 15 races will be required to be completed to constitute a series. A boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores, excluding her 16th best score and all those below it.
Ten skippers completed the 15 or more races required to be competitive in the FSC Dinghy Series.
Results for 2023
2023 FSC Keel Boat Series
The weather was not very cooperative on keel boat racing days, but we were able to hold three keel boat racing days this season.
Scoring for keel boat races is based on each boat’s results for half the total number of races in the series, rounding upward for an uneven total.
This year, we completed seven races, so a boat’s best four scores were counted.
Five skippers participated in the KB series. We completed a total of seven races, so “at least half” represents four races. All five skippers completed at least four races to qualify.

Most Improved Sailor
Each year, we watch with interest the progress of newer sailors as they learn to manage their boats in a variety of conditions. We celebrate this progress by naming one “Most Improved Sailor” every year. The most improved sailor for 2023 is Jan Waters
