stokesbay02thumbWith the first round at Rutland having been postponed until August thanks to the very cold spring, and an early Nationals looming, Stokes bay was to be the only TT event to tune up. A healthy 13 boats turned up, as many as the RS400s who shared the event, with a couple of last minute substitute crews stepping up after work commitments and illnesses intervened.

Stokes BayBit late getting this up, but this weekend 20th/21st April sees us travel to lovely Stokes Bay for the first actual event of the year (following the Rutland cancelleation). This year as well as the Musto fleet we are sharing the event with the RS400s and RS100s, so it should be a good sized event and there is a great social planned which will include the infamous Dan Vincent quiz and a Mount Gay Rum promotion (those who attended last year speak highly of the Sunday morning...)

FIRST START IS 1230 SATURDAY

Folks

 

We are going to replace the Hoo Freezer in the series with the Hayling Island Pursuit Race on February 16th. The first start is at 1330 hrs. It would be great if we could get a good turnout as we have a core fleet close by.

With snow all around (at least here in Cambridgeshire) some of you that are less hardy may have almost forgotten about your boat, but it is less than two months to the season opening event at Rutland SC on the 23rd/24th March. As with last year, the plan that this will incorporate the prize giving for last season's TT- last year no-one went away empty handed- at the White Horse Inn in Morcott.  The best place to stay for this is the Travelodge just up the hill- a short walk or long stagger. Book now, and please say on the form if you're comming- Kathy wants to know numbers for dinner.

UPDATE: Table booked for 30... should be fun  :)
