There was a great turnout for the first Nautical Natters talk of 2017!   Mike Johnson, the RYA’s SW Regional Race Management Co-ordinator, talked us through all the key changes to the Racing Rules of Sailing for 2017-2020.  Many changes are for clarification but one important change concerns Tacking in the Zone (Rule 18.3).  There were other changes too, so beware those members racing who are now boned up on the new rules!
 
The next Nautical Natters is by the RNLI on Coastal Safety – a must for all of us and our families – on Thursday 11th May at 7.30pm.   And you’ll be able to have your lifejacket checked too!
