Review of racing format
The Sailing committee of Bartley Sailing club are currently reviewing options to freshen up the racing at Bartley.
This has been brought on by issues such as long delays between the faster boats finishing handicaps, then starting pursuits, particularly when the race has been prematurely finished due to slower boats potential elapsed time on the race course.
Shortley you will recieve a Survey MONKEY request, inviting you to participate and share your views with us.
Many thanks to Howard for setting this up for us.
Please could you think carefully about the questions which will be those below and feel free to add comments at the bottom of the Survey MONKEY, we can only implement the wishes of the membership with Knowledge of what they want through feedback from surveys such as this.
Top of Form
* 1. Given the opportunity to change the format for Saturday Racing please select one of the options below
2 Races on a Saturday One Pursuit One Handicap
2 Races on a Saturday both Handicap
3 Races On a Saturday all Handicap
2 or 3 races on a Saturday with fleet starts
* 2. Both Tuesday Evening Racing and Thursdays this year have struggled to have enough duty crews across the series with low attendance particularly on Thursday evenings a concern. Please select an option which best suits with how you would wish evening sailing to continue.
No change. Tuesday evenings remain Laser & Solo Fleets and Thursday open club racing
Every one to race and combine on either Tuesday or Thursday (reduce to one evening)
Thursday sailing to shorten to a twelve race series and finish before Summer holidays, Tuesdays to continue as is
* 3. Average Laps could be a good solution to ending a Handicap race at the right time for different classes of boats, however the current courses are too long. please select from the options below
The committee should keep the current agreed courses for both Handicap and Pursuit races
The committee should have separate new designed courses for handicaps which are shorter per lap thus more laps making it easier for average lap results
Not Sure! I don't understand how this works or the relevance to the handicap race
* 4. Please add comments below if there is anything you feel the Sailing Committee can do to improve the quality of racing at Bartley Sailing Club.
