The computerised results worksheet available in the Race Hut has been a huge success in 2012. We made a short video in May of version 1 which was posted to Facebook. Since then a bunch of improvements have been made and today we’ve posted a new tutorial video to our YouTube channel. Take a look at http://youtu.be/_h2RgsTfUyY.
Any feedback on the video or worksheet is always welcome. There are plans for improvements which are listed if you read-on for the full article.

With the new year fast approaching we hope everyone is looking forward to the start of the Icicle Series on Sunday January 6th. As normal those taking part must sign-up for a duty and we’d encourage getting your name down quick, especially if you’re not planning to sail until March.
