Offshore Fall Series III is this Saturday. The standings remain tight with several tie breakers in effect. Remember - standings for series events this year are scored following the High Point Percentage scoring system - so you need a minimum of 51% participation to qualify for the series. You can get a glimpse of the interim standings here.
If you have not registered for Fall Series III please do so - this provides the race committee and social chair an accurate headcount of who is attending. Sign up now. While you are at it - go ahead and make sure you are registered for Fall Series IV and Closing Day. Remember Closing Day is followed by the classic Oyster Roast and a few "new" items this year...Come out and see what they are...
Be on the lookout for another offshore racing meeting to provide feedback on the offshore program this year. This is an informal meeting and acts as a follow up to the Spring meeting. The meeting will occur this month at the club. Topics of interest (much like the Spring) include racing preferences, communication, scoring, ways to boost participation, etc.
Finally, a reminder that the Offshore GSIs and Appendices are available online. These come in handy if you forget your Sailing Events book and forget what an H3 or H5 course is...Not that I've ever done that...
Hope to see you on the water Saturday!
