Ullswater here we come

It is time for he great trek north for the Northern Area Championship this weekend. The first time for a while it has truly been on the North! (Sorry MPSC but you will always be Midlands to me!) It promises to be two days of great sailing an I am sure the evenings will be just as good. Camping is available at the club so I hope to see you all there. After Julie made the effort to come to Essex it would have bee rude not to visit so Matt (Guest appearance) and I will make the trek up Friday.

Mind the Gap!

Mind the Gap!

Well its the yearly trip to Manor Park SC this weekend. If you have not been before it is a great club near Lichfield, Staff with the unique feature of two lakes joined by the famous ‘Gap’.

Fun Up River

Fun Up River

What a great start to the season. Thanks to the 19 boats who made the effort to travel to Essex for the opening event of the season. It was a challenging race day on the Sunday but one which everyone seemed to enjoy, or were they just being polite? Saturday was as always great fun as can be seen from the picture of Julie Lee has posted up. If they had sound you would have heard her coming! Small break now until Manor Park on the 6th June. Just time to get your breath back. Hope to see lots of you there again.

Travellers series Update

Travellers series Update

The Results and Report for Hunstanton are now posted featuring the mug shot shown here and the Travellers series has been updated putting Paul White well clear of the chasing Up River pack. Also don’t discount Robbie Claridge when he gets enough results to qualify; I am sure he will be in the mix at the end of the season as will Rupert if he keeps popping up with those top three finishes. Mid fleet is no different with Lee making the early break in the run in for battle of the Manor Park boats. Its all about discards now as the season takes an August break before Fishers Green on the 31st and then the big one at the Nationals. Always a great social as well as the sailing so get organised now and clear the weekend of 14th & 15th September. There is a rumour it may be someone in the classes 50th Birthday weekend so double...
