New Sailing Buoy Locations
As mentioned in the last newsletter we applied to the Harbour Master to ask if it was time to move the old North Deep marks to what we have been calling the “New Channel” for the last couple of seasons.
Well clearly we have some influence these days because we received the following in an email from Matt during the month.
“We have now moved the North Deep marks to the co-ordinates listed below to mark the new channel. We have also rigged two 'race marks' with yellow beach marker buoys” The locations are as follows:
NDI 53 18'.370 N 03 50'.920 W
NDM 53 18'.662 N 03 51'.659 W
NDO 53 18'.864 N 03 52'.208 W
53 19'.180 N 03 55'.845 W
53 18'.626 N 03 53'.012 W
For our purposes we have named the race marks “Matty F” and “Meldrum”. This layout now gives us a much improved race layout and Cris will be working on a new course card to take advantage of this. Click here for a google earth picture of the race marks.
