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 calorific chocolate overload in advance.
This Easter 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. (NB: the Easters coincide this year, as they do every four years)
Format will be very similar to last year: very quick turnarounds between numerous races. Three (3) minute sequences. Remember, 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.
