Congratulations to Dave Hall for winning the K6 Euro Cup in Brunisse – Holland.
Dave and his crew won 8 out of 10 races on this popular inland sea.
Full report to Follow.
Any one up for sailing with me at the K6 Nationals? It’s at Falmouth 17th to the 20th of September. ( Saturday – Tuesday). I will be going down Friday but racing does not start until Saturday afternoon. Accommodation booked. Son and daughter were joining me but an early Uni start and no time off work have prevented them coming.
Contact me on 07802 611599 or email@example.com if interested.
Congratulations to Chris Clarke & Oliver Herve who are the new Sandhopper national champions
in Sandstorm their brilliant results were 126.96.36.199.2 which sealed victory. 2nd was Apollo with Dan Henderson & Bruce Spratt. 3rd place went to Nick Binnendijk and David Hopper in Scruffy.
26 boats competed in two days of testing conditions
Due to circumstances beyond the club’s control we have had to cancel this event.
Sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
Instead we will run an August Bank Holiday Mini series over the three days on a similar format as the normal Pico series so we can all spend plenty of race time on the water having loads of fun as always.
Now what we do need is a sponsor, so if anyone has any suggestions as to offering a cup of some sort then do please let Mike Thomason know and we can make this an annual event.
Laser Centre have been asked to let us know about some special deals on race sails, kickers and toestraps and details to follow once received.
