HELGOLAND – GRANTON – 2013 – Volunteers & Meeting Mon 20 May

The HELGOLAND-GRANTON RACE  2013 is progressing well through the planning stages.  One of the requirements is for volunteers to man the “arrivals desk”.  We still need volunteers to add their name to the list.   please contact the office or come to the meeting on 20th May.  See below.  Also all those involved are invited to the meeting to discuss the event.

RADIO WATCH VOLUNTEER LIST

MEETING ON MONDAY 20th May 1930 hours in the club for all who want to be involved to find out more. Please come along.

Duties: To work in pairs, keep look out, log and radio watch on Channel 80, BOSWALL and 37, to record finishing times across the line from Middle Pier. For this, portable VHFs, accurate timing from master clock, sound /light signals and mobile phones required.  Car ideal to drive to near finish and return to clubhouse in between finishers.
Note: Racing yachts will have transmitting transponders so arrival times may be predicted – Cathy around earlier on Wednesday setting up regatta office and can cover the finish in case of early arrivals.
Once all yachts finished or accounted for the radio watch will be stood down. A mobile number will help us contact you.
