Gold and Silver Fleet

For 2017 we will be continuing the popular Gold and Silver Fleet for the Travellers series and the Nationals. Individual open meetings can choose to present Silver Fleet Prizes if they wish.

GOLD FLEET – AND HOW THEY GOT THERE

Rules for GOLD Fleet Status:
– Won the National Championships gives you membership for life

Or in the preceding 3 years:
– Finished top 4 at the Nationals
– Won an Open meeting
– Won the Silver Fleet at the Nationals

Special membership will be given to Helms who may have been away for a while and are considered “too good” for the Silver Fleet.
