Easter Saturday Super Sprints Series (“ESSSS) at Double Bay
No formal racing is scheduled for Easter Saturday. But following from the success of the club racing sprints last Easter, we are hosting another super sprint session on Easter Saturday. Improve your boat handling while addressing your chocolate calorie overload in advance.
This Eastern tradition now rivals the Bells surfing contest, and will only be bettered by the eventual agreement by western and Orthodox christian churches on the date for Easter itself.
Format will be very similar to last year. 6-8 races of 15-18 minutes each, 2 laps windward returns, with very quick turnarounds between races. Three (3) minute sequences. Remember this is the last day of daylight savings, and parking is easy because there is no school sport.
Although stragglers are encouraged to cut corners on the last lap so they don't miss the next race (There's more to be learned in the first 200m of a race compared to the last 200m), we want perfect starts and compliance with the rules, and turns when required.
