ORCV Boxing Day Dash (26/12/10)
Now I'm not entirely sure if it does not qualify as outside assistance, but one thing it definitely is, is spot on!
This image comes from last Saturday and Sunday, when SYC ran the annual selection series for the six boat Victorian state Cadet team, which will compete in the Tillett Cup Interstate Teams component of the forthcoming International Cadet Nationals at SYC from Dec 27 to Jan 4. Sunday morning was particularly warm and initially windless, so RO Steve Aulich, made an amendment to the SI’s and posted it on the start boat.
Trainspotters will love to know that the Sasson boys, whom we featured in Things You Learn after their Silver at the Cadet Worlds in Poland, made a fairly emphatic statement over the 35 boat fleet, with six bullets and a third for their seventh race, which was their drop - good work when you can get it, eh!!! Four boats from SYC, one from RGYC and one from RYCV made up the team, in the end...
Now if your name is Bill Rawson, then the only water that you ever ingested, had already been passed over a bunch of ground beans at high pressure, but for the rest of us, good water, taken regularly is important. Remember, if you're thirsty, it is already too late!!!
So there you have it. Good advice, no matter what time of year and what type of racing.
