Vannes presentation 9th November. 20.30 Hrs in the Club Room.
Come along for a flavour of what this fantastic exchange trip is all about with some suitable French nibbles to compliment.
The Vannes exchange is the 23rd-29th June 2019, a full on experience of life and food in France, very hospitable and a very worthwhile event to attend with fellow salty sea dogs from Warsash, Hill Head and Portchester sailing clubs.
See you there.

Ostrobogulous Definition – Humorous, used to designate something that is slightly risqué or indecent! In our case its a system for working out a Race series Champion & encouraging turn out for club racing.
We will be running this alongside our ‘official’ results for the Lugger Summer series. This is just being done as a bit of fun, to generate interest and discussion.
Originally it was first adopted by a single fleet in 1971 and is now used by over 40 clubs throughout Great Britain.
One of the main benefits is that it creates interest and thereby encourages turnout.
The salient features are:
Everyone starts at 0; the helmsman with the highest score after the last race is the winner.
After each race (even after the first race) there is a cumulative total so that at any time in the season each competitor can see where he stands in relation to the others.
Points are awarded to all contestants that cross the start line and also are awarded for beating other helmsmen who are as good or nearly as good as they are. i.e. a good helmsman does not gain any points for beating one with a substantially lower score.
There are no discards allowed.
The system has the automatic effect of making the races near the end of the season more important than those at the beginning. This gives the end of the season added interest and usually means an increase in attendance to the series; Helmsman entering other than the beginning of the season have a chance to catch up.
The length of the series is not important, but the system works best with more than 8 races. This year the Lugger Summer series will run to 21 races – so should be an interesting run. Ties sometimes occur at the end of a series; they cannot be broken and must stand.
Ostrobogulous results will be displayed alongside our Official results, on noticeboard in Clubhouse corridor. This will enable you to compare the two systems. Check out and give us your views.
