The weather is looking OK on Tuesday morning ie it's not raining. However, the forecast is for a little more rain than yesterday so the race officer has decided to split the fleets and some will be staying ashore until others have had a race. Fast handicap and some Standard and 4.7 e completed two races. Rookies are having some fun races as it is too windy for all of them to go on the water.
The AGM is scheduled for 2pm in the Training/Commodores Room (Upstairs West end of clubhouse)

Camping was pretty wet on Sunday night, but spirits were high and the field has drained well.
Monday morning was pretty windy with squalls crossing the lake giving wind speeds of over 25kts at times, so there were plenty of capsizes. A number of sailors sailed the wrong course but the vast majority of the sailors had an exhilarating time.
Two races were sailed in the afternoon and the edge appeared to have gone off the gusts but a number of the less experienced sailors decided, very wisely, to conserve their energies for later in the week.
The LRYSA are looking forward to welcoming all competitors and volunteers to the NSSA National Youth Regatta on 26th – 31st July 2015.
Sailing Venue: Rutland Sailing Club
Camping Venue: Rutland Agricultural Showground
Saturday 25th July
Boats may be taken to the sailing club by prior arrangement.
Sign up for Bart’s Bash 2015 is now underway and people can go to www.bartsbash.com and sign up to sail in the event on the 20th September. It is open to anyone and there Is no minimum number required to participate. So long as your venue is registered, you can easily get involved.
When registering, we have introduced a new feature whereby you can link to an organisation, the NSSA is already in there. Anyone who links to that organisation can race at their home club or event but after the event, the results of everyone who registered under that organisation will be pulled together so anyone who links to the NSSA will be able to see their results against each other, wherever in the country they may sail. Another way of bringing a global sailing race to a local level.
It is hoped people will make a donation to enter or actively fundraise but it isn’t compulsory.

The NSSA had a large presence at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, held at Alexandra Palace over this weekend 28th February to 1st March. As well as our stand we were able to announce a major investment in the future by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
Iain Percy, Trustee of the Foundation, flew in from his Artemis America's Cup team base in San Francisco to attend the annual Show and to present a cheque from the Foundation for Twenty Three Thousand Pounds (£23,000) to James Conway, Treasurer of the National Schools Sailing Association.
The money is one of the first major grants made by the Foundation and will be used by the NSSA to fund school aged children, up to the age of 18, to participate in training programmes, regattas and instructor courses throughout the country. It will also fund training, race management and safety courses for volunteers of all ages across the country who currently work with the NSSA to develop youth sailing.
