The RSGYC announce a new exciting sailing/cycling event for Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2011. The event will feature an approx 50k cycle starting at 1300 on Sat 24th September from the Club. The cycle will finish back at the Club at about 1700. After a cycle, it is important to rehydrate, so there will be drinks in the Club followed by dinner.
On Sunday 25th September there will be 3 Laser races starting at 1100. The races will be short, with the emphasis on skill rather than endurance!
We invite everyone to come along. You may participate in the cycle or the Laser racing alone, but as the weekend is all about the social we would encourage everyone to jump on a bike and do a few km. The cycle route will take us up to Enniskerry in the Wicklow mountains, so the roads are quiet and the scenery great. There will be an athlete's module which includes a climb up the Sally Gap and well, a non athletes module which will include a drink in Enniskerry instead!
On the Sunday we aim for a 1100 start with 3 races of about 30 to 40 minutes duration. We aim to finish at about 1400 with prize giving.
The entry fee for the sailing part is 15 euro. The cycling is free. The event is aimed at Masters (over 35) but if any of you younger guys feel like being beaten by an oldie, then come along!
Please enter here online now. Pay the entry fee on the day. We are expecting about 25 boats but please enter online so that we can get an idea of numbers.
To keep the cost down for anyone travelling, some of your fellow racers can offer accommodation in their homes.
