Bit 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
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.

Head to the forum to let us know if you're going
Bye for now
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 :)
Competitors from as far afield as South Wales and the East Coast converged on Queen Mary SC for the final event of the B14 TT Series, the Inland Championship. We were sharing the venue with the Cherub fleet.
Following a series long battle, three boats - Ullman Sails (Mark Watts/ Kathy Sherratt), Neil Pryde (Mark Emmett / Allan Stuart) and Seavolution (Barnsie, sailing with local super-sub Alex Jones) were in still contention for the overall TT Series going into the event, with many other sub-prizes also up for grabs.
On Saturday the wind eventually rose to a gentle 4-5 knots - staying just above kite collapsing strength and much to the liking of the reigning Inland Champions the Anthill Mob (Tim Harrison & Jonny Ratcliffe), dusting off 758 for a first outing since the Nationals.
