Racing Day 2 – B14 National Championships – Perth Dinghy Sailing Club – 3/01/2011
Sailors left the beach in a strong and gusty South East breeze and the start boat was up the far north west corner of the bay. The fleet had mostly managed to repair what wounds it could before preparing to tackle the races ahead. Before the racing got underway the fleet waited a while whilst the wind settled in place for the PRO and I14 legend Stewart “Jock” Ross to set the course. Whilst the wind settled it eased down to a moderate to strong and gusty South Easterly.
Racing Day 1 – B14 National Championships – Perth Dinghy Sailing Club – 2/01/2011
The first day of racing in the B14 National Championships got underway in a strong freshening seabreeze. 15 boats faced the starter and after a short delay the race got underway in choppy conditions.
After much deliberation and a public vote, the dates for the 2012 European championships have been decided.
Racing will be held from Friday 24th to Monday 27th August 2012 at Le Centre Nautique de Plérin, Brittany, France, with measurement and practice on Thursday 23rd. The event is being put together by Sebastian Le Cam, after he kindly "volunteered" to organise it at the UK nationals, and this is a home event for Sophie and him.
More information is available in this pack (note that the schedule will be updated in line with the above dates) to help you start choosing your accomodation. Look to the forum for more and to arrange double stackers etc.
We've had two fantastic events in Brittany in the last couple of years, this is sure to be a third one. See you there!
