Also, an Area Championship is for a weekend, and Poole Week starts on the sunday with a club race on the saturday which is not easy to change in the Poole Week diary.

Where does it say in our rules that an area champs has to be run over a weekend? Why not run it over a week? I am not suggesting that Parkstone YC change the format of Poole Week in any way.

A conventional weekend champs is 5 races with one discard. Poole week is six races with two discards (I think). What’s the big difference?

Please note that I am ‘demob happy’ as I have less than one month left as Assistant Racing Secretary (don’t worry, the guy taking over, Johnny Johnstone, is a very sensible chap).
