OXFORD SC IC OPEN - 5th OCT

Post by Shaunanderson » Mon Sep 02, 2019 10:26 am

The end of the IC season is approaching rapidly once again and the delights of Oxford loom large.

This year I'm considering something a little different for Friday 4th Oct instead of the usual Training day though this is all dependent on Simon (PRO).

Friday 4th
Either Training Day as per usual
OR
Sprint Cup - Short windward / leeward courses - as many as can be completed in the available time frame, all races to count. (also considering pairing up depending on numbers with last boats result counting as the score for the pair)

Saturday 5th
Usual 4 races back to back (3 to score)
SI's to follow

Cost to be £15.00 for each day.

Saturday Evening Annual Meal
Booked into the same venue as last year (Bear and Ragged Staff), sit down for 1900 and once again numbers AND menu choices as soon as possible!

We have a new idea for training which has been put forward by Rick Bowers.

Adam Bowers is an Olympic coach and at Castle Cove last year provided some excellent sessions analysing how you sail the boat and its rig setup. Adam has been hired for the Friday and will provide a structured coaching session with video analysis to highlight any issues and improvements you can make on an individual basis. As an additional service for £5 (this is only to recover some of our costs) Rick and Adam can prepare a written report showing pictures of your rig and various aspects of how the boat is working. This will allow you to see how the mast and sails are working together and allow you to improve tuning of the rig, calibration etc.

We believe this could be an immense way of helping everyone in the fleet develop their boats and skills and the association will subsidise this. However we will ask for a slightly higher fee of £20 for the training on Friday with an optional additional £5 if you want a rig report preparing.

Please can we have some feedback on this and also an indication of numbers.

This is a great idea. There are many areas that I am not sure about and one of the issues I have is comparing rig set ups. The difficulty is objectivity; I do not know how you can achieve this, when the best sailor will do well in any up-to-spec boat you might put him in. perhaps if we had 8 or 10 boats set up on the shore, we could all see what Adam has to say about each of them, and do our analysis in this way. Anyway, I am in, however it runs on the day. Looking forward to something constructive!
Or if the idea is just to look at each boat on the water, and to show the specifics of how badly it is sailed, then that would be welcomed too. Rob.

I am totally happy to run 'Sprint' races on Friday. I suggest on the water at 14:00 off the water after 16:00, 1 lap and as many races as I can get in. I will have to work out how to record the results as there is only me on the start boat, probably the GoPro and work it out in the bar afterwards. Let me know your views.

I Have a stamp passed and might manage Friday Sat (Sun) and hope to have redesigned the Baconslicer into something a little safer!

Am I too late to book in for dinner?

When I booked with the manager he was happy for people to select off the Sep menu even though it changes ever month (it doesn't change much were his words!) As it would appear after Steve spoke to them they would prefer waiting till OCT menu is out, please provide details no later than the 2nd Oct.

The forecast is currently not looking favorable for any sailing on Friday (50knt gusts) however I will be keeping an eye on it and a decision will be made mid week.

Note: The wind is forecast to drop for Saturday for a jolly nice sailing day, but wet.
