We have the races split in to series. the morning race is Handicap (either Fast or Slow) followed by the 2 afternoon fleet races (yes people fleet racing) if you class has fleet status, there is a handicap racing for everything else. It was one of my reasons to go for the 8.1/Laser combination. I can handicap race in a boat that is competitive on handicap in the mornings, then in the afternoons I can fleet race and hone up my boat handling and tactical skills.

We run four races on Tuesday Night for the Boards.

But the old dinghy folk can only cope with one on a Thursday 60 minutes or
three tri sausage laps whichever comes soonest.

Sunday is One in the morning, hour long.

We have done two, but one or the other becomes undersubscribed..

Dinghy folk just aren't fit enough to do more than one race without falling
off their perch we find..

At Whitefriars we used to do 4 races on a Sunday, but the last race was pretty pooly attended, so we went down to 3. Guess what? The last race is sometimes pretty poorly attended, dispite being earlier than before. When I first joined, racing started at 12.30 to allow people to go to Church in the morning. Now, I've nothing against people going to church (my wife and kids do), but as far as I'm concerned, Sunday morning only has one purpose, and it involves more water than a font has...

Dunno if it's still the case, but when I was a member there Loch Venachar ran two races with the first starting at 2:15pm! Again, a church thing traditionally. Alternatively, a lie-in-and-big-breakfast thing.
