super series launch

Sailing Committee are launching a new initiative for the 2019 season. We want more people sailing more often and we hope the incentive will push you on the water for that extra race.

Launching Elton Sailing Club “Super Series’. The rules are simply:

  • Every time you enter a series and complete enough races (half plus 1 of the races sailed in the series) to not have to carry a DNC in your overall results- you will be entered into the draw.
  • OD duties count as results.
  • You can be entered more than once- in fact the more you enter the more chance you have of winning!
  • Qualifying series are as follows- All Wednesday evening series, all sunday afternoon racing series and all club events. Open meeting don’t count!
  • You don’t have to sail the same boat.
  • The draw will take place at the 2019 AGM.
