Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week 2017

Big Wednesday Update

Good morning all and welcome to Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week Big Wednesday sponsor by AOC, Just Trays and Deltech UK. Here is our round-up of today’s news and information:
 
Racing
 
There will be a briefing at 12.30 for the Big Wednesday All In Handicap which will be run for us by Race Officers Alan Hicks and Craig Bond. The Race Starts at 14.00 and as this is right at the top of the tide the race officers will do their very best to get the start line as close to the club as the can so everyone can enjoy the spectacle.
 
Duties
 
There are just a couple of duty slots still to fill so if you haven’t volunteered yet please do so. Everyone is expected to do at least one duty during the week and the duty options are rescue boat, galley and evening table/chair moving. Thanks so much to everyone who has already volunteered, its is brilliant to see everyone mucking in and pulling together to make the event the fantastic family fun week we all love so much.
 
Weather
 
Rain and a lot of it is the main feature of today’s forecast. The wind could be anything from sub 10 knots to mid teens and from pretty much any direction as the rain bands roll through, but as usual we will be keeping calm and carrying on in the truly British tradition.
 
Admin
 
We are still looking for a couple more Pyefleet Week perpetual trophies so please drop them into Kathy at the race hut.
 
Social
 
Come rain or shine the infamous Big Wednesday Party will be going ahead and Family White are on stand by to bring us another fantastic celebration. Tickets are still available from Kathy in the race hut so dig out your dancing pumps and come on down to party!
 
Sponsors
 
We have three fabulous sponsors for Big Wednesday.  AOC and Just Trays are returning for their third consecutive year and they are joined for the first time by Deltech UK. We will have representatives of all three companies with us today so if you bump into them please do say hello and thank them for helping us make Learning & Skills Solutions Pyefleet Week such a great regatta.
 
 
Have a great day everyone!
