May 19th - Training Day

Gareth will be hosting this and plans to make a start at 1100hrs with a talk, and probably rig and sail around 12. then on the water practise. Then a de-brief at the end of the day.

Food will be available during the day. Evening meal see note below.

May 20th One Day open

First start will be at 1100hrs back to back with the second race.

Lunch

Race 3 back to back with race 4, with one discard.

Races 2 & 4 could be a long distance race - dependant on suitable wind?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I will there on Friday to let you in should you wish to be there early. Drop me a line for my mobile number.

Saturday Day - food will be available.

Saturday Evening dependant on numbers attending we may be able to persuade the caterer to do an evening meal, other wise we will have to go to a local pub?

Sunday Day - Food will be available.

Hope to see you all there.

Mike

Thanks Mike, this looks good.

Is camping possible at Northampton SC?
If not, can you recommend a nearby campsite that takes tents.
Thanks,

Scott.

Sorry I forgot to add that, reference camping?

There is plenty of Grass, and camping is free.

For those that have camper vans and want electric hook up, Yes that can be done and as I understand it the electricity is free. However I don't know where the cables are kept, let alone where the power feeds are - that would have to be sorted on the Saturday.

The bar can be open on both Friday & Saturday nights, and I will be in charge of that?

Mike

Just a timely reminder to get your boats sorted after their winter slumber, and also to get bottoms polished for Northampton.
:D
Rob Michael has confirmed its all in the technique - and a fast hard rubbing often produces a different outcome than expected.
