Easter Saturday Super Sprints Series (“ESSSS) at Double Bay
There is no formal racing scheduled for Easter Saturday. However, since 2013 we have conducted club racing sprints on Easter Saturday to improve boat handling skills while addressing the 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 second last Satuday 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.
