Sunday 21 April is Easter Day and also the Tamesis Club annual Easter Egg pursuit race. This race is always a lot of fun and the weather looks like it is going to be beautiful.
There is no class racing but lunch will be served in the clubhouse as usual.
The Easter Egg race is a handicap pursuit, any boat can join in and club boats are available for crews who would like to borrow one. Slower boats start first with the theory being that everyone finishes together at the end of the race.
The first start will be at 11.00 so please be at the club in plenty of time so that you can rig and get on the water. The race will finish at 12.30 and positions will be recorded by both the race box team and a group on the patrol boat; to make this process easier, once the finish gun has sounded please remember to hold your position on the course until it has been noted.
There will be chocolaty prizes galore so there is a very good chance that you will go home with a tasty treat!
This is an eggcellent event which is ideal for people who are new to racing so please come along and have a crack.’
