Annual Run for Chips – October 1

The ARC is on again for this year. This year the ARC was tentatively scheduled for this weekend. However, based on the current forecast for this weekend September 24th and 25th, it looks like it will be a rain and wind, so I am going to cancel and go for the following weekend of October 1st and the 2nd. If the weather does not pan out for that weekend then we will hold it at the marina.

The ARC will be a run to Bay Roberts on Saturday, stay the night and get some chips and other food stuff at a local restaurant, then sail back to Holyrood on Sunday. It is an opportunity to close out the season with your sailing friends and for sailing newbies to sail in company with experienced sailors.

Departure time will be 10:00am on Saturday.

The ARC is generously organized by Wayne Stokes. If you have any questions, please contact Wayne at wstokes@nf.sympatico.ca.
