Latest updates 04 Aug 2018:

Social and catering:
Sunday's dinner menu change - Lasgane, yum!
We have breakfast and lunch packages available for all participants and guests. Available to book at registration.

Your attention is drawn to the following extract from the sailing instructions.
Note: Sailing Instructions will be available at registration:

6.1.2. A boat or equipment may be inspected at any time for compliance with the class rules and sailing instructions. On the water, a boat can be instructed by a race committee measurer to proceed immediately to a designated area for inspection. Any boat found to be non-compliant will be disqualified from any race in which it has already competed and may only re-join the event following rectification and rechecking.

It is therefore the responsibility of each competitor to ensure their boat complies with the class rules. We will be providing the facilities to weigh each boat starting from 12:00 on Friday 10th and prior to racing on Saturday morning 7:30 onwards this will also continue after racing at risk of the above! Outside of these times can be accommodated so just let me know. 
As per previous events we will be stamping 2 suits of sails to be used at the championships and this will be done by the independent measurement team during the times above.
Understandably there may be competitors arriving Saturday morning, so it would be much appreciated if those arriving early make themselves known so we can get these things out of the way!

Location: Thorpe Bay Yacht Club
