The Royal Southern at Cowes Week

Another well done to the Royal Southern Team!

Aug 21, 2019

Some Southern members' experiences from Cowes Week 2019...

Pat North, Sailing Chair, from a Race Management perspective:
"From the RYS start line
The courses, the starts, the race progression, radio comms with competitors and the finishes were all delivered by our fabulous Race Management team from Friday to Wednesday of Cowes 2019.
Our 14 man team provided the expertise for course setting, the cool concentration for the course read and time, the clear command to the gunner, the split second line calls, the high speed pin end control, the judgement to keep starters and finishers separate and the marathon finish recording. It was a great team effort.
Some made the daily, often wet and rough, trip from Hamble and we thank our motorboat drivers for that. Some stayed in Cowes and so mixed the day’s work with the many receptions and conversations with competitors, and our Yacht Club friends on the South Island."
