I am delighted to announce we are holding the Western shore Roundup once again after a year of no racing. It will be held at the West River Sailing Club September 24 and 25. Sailors can meet at the West River Cookout on Friday evening where you can purchase food and drink and have a nice evening with all of us together again.
Racing on Saturday is open to all Dickersons as well as other vintage single hull cruising boats whose first hull was laid down prior to 1990. The race starts at High Noon at WR G1 and features a rabbit start type of race. Rabbit starts make it easy for all competitors to get a good windward start. The winner of the race is declared the Sheriff of the Western Shore with a perpetual trophy. We will have a dinner at Pirates Cove that evening. Some sailors continue on Sunday following the race to cruise around together.
There is plenty of water for anchoring off the Club for short dinghying to the Club docks. I am checking on the viability of the Club moorings so stay tuned. If the docks are free of members two boats could tie up.
If you plan to attend let me know by 20 September and I will email you several pages of Race Instructions and suggestions on starting. Also let me know if you and your crew plan to attend the cookout; helps the kitchen staff plan.
Of course all this is subject to virus restrictions. The Club has been very conservative on this issue.
