On Paper (mostly)
Many of the Club’s publications are available through the website. A descriptive list is available through the Downloads tab. Almost all of them will have been linked elsewhere on the website, but a few extras might creep in.
In addition, the Club publishes
- the SIs handbook, essential reading for all racers,
- The FSC Sailing Calendar, a folded A5 card, which covers the racing season from April through to October,
- the Winter Programme, also available as a folded A5 card, covering the Club’s activities from October through to the end of March,
- a monthly Newsletter, sent as an emailed link to all members.
Race Officer manuals
If you are a Race Officer, you will have access to the Race Officer manuals, which currently exist as two A4 books, one for Tuesdays and one for Saturdays. These are either on board the Committee Boat, or in the Ops Room. The Saturday (Clubhouse) manual is available to download. In the fullness of time (dreckly), the Tuesday manual will be collated and published electronically so that you have the opportunity to read through the instructions before arriving at the Clubhouse/Committee Boat.
Race results are published first on the noticeboard in the Clubhouse, and (in theory) simultaneously on the website.
Various notices will appear on the Club noticeboard, either of direct relevance to the Club, like Changes to Instructions, or Pursuit Starting Times (which often appear on the windows, facing out), or more generally, such as out of port Regattas, pleas for help, or occasionally boats for sale. There is also a loose-leaf book in which details of boats for sale should go.
Minutes of the committee meetings are also posted in the Clubhouse and in the Members Area.
