HW Harwich 13.58
We once again welcome the skippers and crews aboard their various craft at Pin Mill for the 2018 Race.
With HW Harwich at 13.58, we will look to have a slightly earlier start to the race this year at 09.30 hrs. This will hopefully give the competitors the opportunity to sail most of the course before the start of the ebb tide and the dreaded tidal gate at the mouth of the Orwell!
The start line will be in Batterman's Bay as in other years, with the finish line off the PMSC. The course, subject to weather, should take the craft out to Stone Banks / Medusa Buoy before returning back through the harbour and a short leg up the R. Stour, then back up the R. Orwell to Pin Mill.
On the Friday evening the club house / Bar will be open from 18.00 hrs, plus a BBQ providing great value Bangers and Burgers. A short skippers briefing will take place at the club at 20.30 hrs, where entry forms, course cards etc will be available, or can be down loaded from the PMSC web page prior to the event.
On Saturday following the racing, the club will again be open for the Bar and a light Buffet supper available for competing crews, guests and members, at a cost of £8 a head. The prize giving will take place at 21.00 hrs.
The club looks forward to welcoming all competing crews and craft, and seeing the spectacle of many tan sails on the Orwell.
