LSC Weather conditions

Windguru is showing some significant gusts on the Saturday which has the potential to create some challenging conditions coming out of the harbour around the bar. On the back of this please do consider the ability of your children especially the younger and less experienced ones as want to avoid a bad experience that could deter them from sailing. Sunday looks as if there will be a bit of a breather.

For Sailors arriving on Sunday there will be registration on 8.00 - 9.00am in the IOCA Race Office.  

Official RIB Arrival Information

Offical IOCA (UK) RIBs

It is expected that RIBs will be launched by tractor from an area on the beach to the left of the RNLI station if sea conditions are appropriate (see attached site map). Any change in the launching area will be communicated on arrival.

Please unload any Oppies in the RIB area and wheel the boats to the Optimist boat park - please do not bring RIBs into the main car/boat park as there will not be space to turn around. All RIBs will then be given a tag by the Marine Team to label clearly their RIB trailers to ensure retrieval on Sunday runs efficiently.

If there is no tractor or marine team around on arrival please call the Marine Department on VHF channel 37A. All RIBs need to be launched before the safety briefing on Saturday morning 9:00 am. There will be two windows to launch RIBs;

Friday night 17:00-19:30
Saturday 08:00-09:00

Any laggards will need to be launched after the race management / club RIBs ie after 10:00am so please make every effort to have the RIBs in the water in the above time windows.

RIB mooring
The speed limit in the Harbour is 8 knots please respect this even if you are in a rush in the morning !

The club is currently without a pontoon so after launching RIBs will need to be put on a mooring or anchored off the club beach (owners risk). If you need a lift from a mooring call the Ferry (Selene on Channel 8). We will also have a small RIB at peak times to ferry the Optimist RIB crews and they will make themselves known to you.

Overnight please put RIBs on the moorings indicated - ask for instructions from the Marine department and failing that Sandy on 37A.

(Note - please tie your bow lines to the top of the swivel on the mooring so the bowlines don't get tangled up as the buoys swivel around in the tide).

RIB retrieval
Visiting RIB retrieval will be prioritised and we expect to remove the RIBs in a timely manner after the racing. The Marine Department will be ready to remove RIBs as the first flight comes ashore. The IOCA Safety Leader will communicate the priority process to the Safety fleet.  

Arrival information for HISC

HISC can be found on the South East of Hayling Island on Sandy Point post code PO11 9SL.

There is currently a diversion in place so it is best to take Elm Grove to the Sea front before turning left towards the Eastern edge of the island. As you approach the club follow the signs to the Lifeboat Station. As you enter the site through a narrow road and bridge all those with Optimists only on roof or trailer should turn right at the small round about before the main barriers as indicated in the site map to the trailer/boat/car park.

All RIBs should follow the separate guidance to sent out by the IOCA Safety leader.
