The next JBCYC Special Race Day will be held on Saturday 22 April. There will be the usual 2 short races with handicap start. To make the races even more interesting there will be some challenges thrown in designed to test skipper and crew on water safety skills - perhaps a mandatory man over board exercise. Following the races there will be a flare demonstration presented by Ray Lonsdale, the BSO for our area, and a fire extinguisher demonstration by Paul Gooey. So bring along your out of date flares and partially used fire extinguishers and get some supervised practice. The safety challenges will be weather dependant so we can't tell you what they will be until the day! There will be a BBQ after the race to help you recover.
