Web Site Updates

Web Site Updates

Hi all, Now the season has finished, we are having to do some updates to the website, which will slightly change its functionality. Most of these changes are quite minor, but one in particular will require a difference in use. The forum software has had a major upgrade and whilst the forum itself has greater scope and capabilities. The most recent posts no longer appear in the sidebar. To access the forum you now need to click the button in the main menu. Once on the forum home page, you will see dropdown menu and search fields to navigate your way around the forum and see the latest posts. By far the quickest way of looking for the latest updates is the dropdown box on the top right-hand side. However you can now also easily search the forum and the advanced search is very easy and effective to use. Changes have also been made to the access system. All the main menu items will now appear for everyone, but only CA members can actually access the CA Members area. If anyone has any problems then please drop me an email and I’ll try and sort them out as quickly as I...

The Rum and Mince Pie

The Rum and Mince Pie

Hi Folks, we are just a week or so away from our last event of the year now, the Rum and Mince Pie at West Oxford, on the 15 Nov. This is always a great end to the season and a very social event. For whatever reason it seems to be the event our newbies come along too and try their hand at Class racing for the first time. They all seem to enjoy it and find it all much more relaxed and friendly than expected. As is now tradition, we are off to the pub for a quick bite to eat and a chat after the racing, Caroline has booked the venue – The Windrush – in nearby Witney again a very informal and friendly affair, sailors, spectators, kids, all welcome. If you can come along Caroline would appreciate a quick note with numbers so she can keep the pub updated. Hope to see you...

Haversham Update

Haversham Update

Hi all, Haversham report and results posted, sorry I missed it, away with work again, but will be at West Oxford for the Rum and Mince Pie. Another great event, with the wind holding up for a good sail. The leaders stretching their margin, but still the top slot is open for a challenge at West Oxford. Robin has provided a very nice and amusing report on the event at Haversham, always worth a read. The next and last event of the season is West Oxford for the Rum and Mince Pie, on the 15th November and Caroline has booked the pub (the windrush) for a bite to eat...

Haversham & Updates

Hi Folks, it is the Inland Champs this coming weekend at Haversham SC, one of the traditional homes of the LN. Super lake venue very close to Milton Keynes, very easy to get too, just off the M40. Haversham always makes for a nice event, really nice little club, with a great little lake to sail on and plenty of room on and off the water. Do get along if you can for our last but one event of the year.     Rum and Mince Pie Talking of last events of the year, we have posted up the NORs for the Rum and Mince Pie at West Oxford SC. Always a great end to the season and as usual we plan to pop down the pub afterwards for a quick meal and bit of a social. Caroline has already booked the Windrush and reserved places for us. There is lots of local B&Bs if you want to stay over, The Laurels really is opposite the pub and a nice place to stay if you want to drive home in the morning. More Details: End of Season Meal Bristol Avon Open We had a super event at Bristol Avon,the first time the LNs have visited the club. they have a good sized home fleet and plenty turned out for the event. Winds were very light, but a good time was had by all. The race report is published and we’ll get the full results and series table updated later this week. Inclusion in the Open Series We have had a few queries about the open series and who gets included. The current class rules are fairly clear on the matter. Anyone can take part in a open event, class association member or not. They can win, or be placed, but they can not claim an association trophy unless they are a class member and their result will not be included in the open series tables. The nationals is also a CA members only event. This was agreed last year and used for the 2014 season for the first time. We do of course want people to take part and enjoy our events, but also be fair to class members who pay their annual subs. We think this is a fair approach for...

Series Results

Series Results Table has been updated following the nationals and NORs published for Haversham. We are having a first visit to Bristol Avon tomorrow, a super little river venue, between Bath and Bristol, easy to get too, just off the M4. Bristol Avon have a very good home fleet, and are very keen on transom rigged mains for the LNs, Rupert copied them for a tryout. We are on the water around 11:00, so if you can make it I know they will be pleased to see new visitors. Hope to see you there.
