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!
Unfortunately, it is with much regret that Draycote Water Sailing Club have decided that the best course of action is to postpone the Draycote Dash until February 25th/26th 2012.
Seavolution the suppliers of the B14 and its primary suppliers are pleased to announce that they will be sponsoring the B14 fleet at 4 pursuit events this winter. This is in reflection to the support the fleet has shown through 2011 when the B14 build switched from Ovington Boats to Seavolution with hulls built by Synthesize Group.
The events are:
- Draycote Dash – November 19 – 20th 2011 - Sponsor Marlow Ropes
- Starcross Steamer – January 15th 2012 - Sponsor North Sails One Design (UK)
- Steve Nicholson Memorial Trophy – January 28th 2012 - Sponsor Allen Brothers
- Tiger Trophy – February 4 - 5th 2012 - Sponsor Harken (UK)
Each supplier will be awarding prizes for their designated event and, overall prizes will be supplied by Seavolution, Synthesize Group and Advantage Sails.
The format will be low point scoring with 3 events to count out of 4.
Some of the new Seavolution B14s will be on show participating at the events.
See the forum for more information, advice on accomodation etc.
