Our first event of the year is almost upon us, the weather is getting warmer, it must be time to spruce up your skills at this great venue, where the water stays put. We had a good turnout last year with some notables pulling sickies, so we should be able to beat that this year.

First Race on Saturday at 12.30, last race on Sunday at 2.30, courses are usual triangle/sausage.

Go to for NOR and additional information.

As usual, there will be a casual dinner at 'The Knockerdown' on the Saturday evening, held jointly with the Javelin teams, which is always an enjoyable night. An idea of numbers attending would be useful, and note that you need to contact me if you are going to arrive after 5.30pm on the Friday night as they tend to shut the gates then. Please indicate your attendance.

I hope to be there, not guaranteed yet though. Sadly Gareth can't make it so I have a deputy light weight crew so I hope the reasonable forecast holds!

Gusty, shifty, cold.... but actually a great weekend. A little challenging at times, but ultimately a good fun. Shame more couldn't make it.

Full report to follow but for now:

Myself and Dawn won
Strangler and Pippa second
Mike Owen and mad cycling crew third
Dean and Dean jr 4th.

Actually, my mildly barmy/super crew is called Andy Holmes. He has to be a bit nuts to sail with me!
