Weekly Wednesday Races 2014

The Wednesday evening racing tradition started at HSS before the World War II. We want to fill as many boats as possible to go out in friendly racing.

Last fall we had a great interest on these races with especially L16 and 606 classes. In 2014 we will draw also the Elliotts and SM40s in. The race will be organized together with the classic boats and club committee, ensuring eye candy such as 8 meters and 6 meters on the same starting line with us. There will also be a regular BBQ party and drinks afterwards.

There will be a class specific Wednesday race ranking, but Wednesdays are all about socializing and the real winners are the ones that have the best stories of their performance after racing! Some of the races will be held in sprint (short course) format while others will have longer courses. Especially the latter is also good practise also for experienced match racers as wind shifts and big scale tactics play a bigger role compared to maneuvers.

We also invite 606s from neighbouring clubs to join in! Skipper’s meeting can be done via phone and you’re more than welcome to join us for the after sail party too.
