End of another season

I guess for most of you the sailing season has come to an end and now we need to start thinking about sending in your clubs race results.

We have not confirmed the date of the AGM but I will need to set a deadline date for receiving results.

I have include an item for both in this newsletter

Hope your season went well, see you at the AGM.

It has been a frustrating month for me. I experienced major computer problems that required the unexpected purchase of replacement equipment. The office was basically closed for 3 weeks while I addressed the issues. I am happy to say, I am now up and running and working on some long outstanding projects.

The new Data Management System (aka Race Analysis and PHRF boat program) is coming along nicely. I now have a version that I will be playing with and reporting back to the programmer. Our target is to have this fully functioning for this year.

I am working on many smaller projects that I also hope to have completed over the next couple of weeks.

Central Council:

The following are just some of the issues being addressed at a meeting that is now in the planning stages.

- Quicker ways to set handicaps for variations of boats already in our database
- Complete review of the Appeal Process
- Jib and LP maximums
- Handicap reviews for Mumm 30 , Freedom 25s, Beneteau 36.7 SD, Wylie 28, Beneteau 25 Platu
- Appeals for the Catalina 320, CS 22, Mantra 7000
- ODR handicaps for J 22, Sonar, Farr 395
