The way I see it, we've reached the top of the mountain for the 2016/7 sailing season at RCYC. The Mykonos Offshore attracted a massive entry of over 80 yachts, and despite less than ideal conditions, had no fewer than 69 yachts score at least one finish in the four races, with 82 yachts scored in the results. This is a healthy improvement on last year. The organizing committee introduced some new ideas this year to keep the event fresh and current. Well done.
There have been a number of negative incidents in recent weeks that all come back to a similar theme around values and judgement. Whether it be safety at sea; behavior in the club; or how you interact with fellow members, guests and staff; please put your best foot forward.
