Workers' struggle celebrations

Luke Parker

October long weekend brings several celebrations

  • Annual day of rest and celebration for the workers
  • NRL grand final
  • Closure of the ski season
  • AFL grand final (a passing fad for Sydney workers)
  • Last weekend before parents can hand daytime custody back to teachers
  • Daylight savings implemented, robbing us of an hour's sleep (or an hour's drinking if you're still at uni)

Implications for DBSC members are:

  1. Informal non Pointscore racing this weekend.  Probably sprints, possibly 6-8 races. probably 2 lap windward /leewards, potentially about 20 minutes each race, likely with 3 minute start sequence (4.7s start on 2 mins, radials on 1 min, standards on 0).  But there will certainly probably be some changes to this plan. 
  2. Weekly Wednesday night twilight sailing starts on Wednesday 7 October and continues throughout daylight savings. Celebrate hump day with a sail.  Aim for a 5.30pm splash. Very informal sprints, often rabbit starts (we'll explain on the day), all welcome.
