PROGRAMME

See Notice of Race for programme of racing. Measurement and inspection of boats takes place on Saturday, 11 December. Please will all Optimists get their sails measured and certified BEFORE the event. Contact Lionell McCaul on mccaullj@telkomsa.net or 031-700 4313 to make arrangements.

Registration will take place on Sunday, 12 December from 09h00 to 16h00. The warm-Up race is on Sunday 15h00.

Don't miss the two BIG functions of the event:


HOBIE WAY OF LIFE WELCOME PARTY – Sunday 12 December. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Hobie Cat, we're in for a super-duper opening of the regatta, a party of note. Parents are welcome – it's the Hobie Way of Life – family, friends and fun. Don't forget to bring your dancing shoes…

 


NAG BATTLE OF THE REGIONS – This challenge goes out to all competitors: What can you do for your team? There are 11 events in this challenge to choose from and every competitor will need to take part in at least one of them. We need one Team Manager per region to coordinate this – please elect your team manager and inform Belinda Hayward.


So while the top dinghy sailors challenge each other in the Team Racing, all the other competitors can do something to count towards the overall regional championship. We have:


Braai competition – ingredients will be supplied, bring your braai tongs and décor.


Sailing Quiz competition


Team T Shirt competition (everyone will receive a plain white shirt and will need to paint their team shirts in the regional colour). These shirts will be worn throughout the Battle of the Regions on Thursday.


Sailing Relay Race


Team Paddling Race


Rudderless sailing race


Big Swim


Physical Fitness competition


Volleyball match


Obstacle Course


The Battle of the Regions is proudly sponsored by New Age Gaming magazine – Let the Games Begin!


Every evening we have the usual Skop ‘n Skit with Mike and Ricky Robinson – a mini-prize-giving, loads of laughs and a de-briefing of the days sailing. This is followed by supper and then some form of entertainment: Movie Monday, Teaching Tuesday, Battle of the Regions (Wed) and Freaky Friday. 


Thursday, 16 December has been kept open for class association AGMs and/or youth committee meetings. Please take note of notices of these from your class associations.

CLASS ANNOUNCEMENTS

NOVICE FLEET
All novice / beginner sailors are welcome. We'll have a separate race / training area managed by a SAS NR accredited youth coach and all sailors entered into the Novice fleet will also receive rash vests and prizes like everyone else.

DABCHICKS
Dabbie Hoodies, similar to last year's black and blue ones, are subsidized 50% by the class association. If you would like to buy one at R110 (Dabbie sailors) or R220 (non-Dabbie sailors), please order before 22 November from Rob Foreman on rob@usspactech.co.za.

HOBIE CLASS
We're hosting an informal Hobie Youth meeting on Thursday evening to elect a national youth committee and plan for youth specific training and events for 2011. All Hobie parents and youth are invited to attend – bring alone some new ideas. Mark Kopel, SAHCA Chairman, will be there.

LASER & 420 charters
There are 4 x SAS Lasers available for charter at R1,000 for the week and 4 x SAS 420s at R1,200 for the week. A R1,500 deposit is required and will be refunded at the end of the regatta if the boat is returned complete and without breakages. Contact Denise Sewell to book a charter boat.

OTHER ATTRACTIONS

For parents and siblings, why just sit-around for 7 days when you too can have fun and use the time to treat yourselves, learn something new, or simply have a holiday. There are a number of options available to consider:


How about chartering a yacht for a sunset cruise, to watch the youth racing or to sail around the island and explore the vaal dam? Perhaps enrol for an Introduction to Keelboat Sailing day course? Contact Austin Daly at LDYC on 083 294-1186 for more details.

Bring your hiking boots, running shoes, mountain bike or exercise mat and join our daily Keep Fit programme - walks, runs, cycles, yoga and kick-boxing.

We're putting together a great Pamper package for moms – treat yourself! We'll also have some interesting workshops and talks for parents on "Youth in Sport - a Parent Guide" and "Developing Teams and Talent".

Perhaps consider helping the organisers with a day or two of your time. We call on parents that will be at the regatta to help with one of the following duties (it can be for a day or two or the week – many hands make light work for everyone):

Rescue and mark laying - contact Warwick

Bridge - contact Rob or Brian

Bar and ticket sales - contact Paul

Registration - contact Denise

Battle of the Regions coordination - contact Belinda


Thank you to the organising committee thus far, and all the volunteers that step forward, for volunteering their time.
