Any other comments on Hornet open meetings?

Area to camp in is a good idea.

Vary the venues year to year. Combine with other class.

Share with other classes. Well organised racing. Incorporate within club regattas.

Are there any other points that would make the championships more enjoyable?

Cheep Beer. Close accommodation. Boat park security. Good galley.

Would prefer to see the mini series with 8 races held over the Sunday and Monday with then only 1 race per day or if two races per day a set lay day so that we could actually turn the balance of the week into a holiday.

Family friendly, camping and evening activities. X 2

For a short championship measurement could not take a day.

Not keen to have a championship part of a club regatta week.

Long weekend for the Championships.

Great to have the opportunity to air views.

Keep the friendly class approach.
