Re: 2010 events

Nationals at Oulton - Great Idea! (But I would say that - wouldn't I!?!) It could be combined with Oulton Week, say maybe Sun, Mon & Tue, for the Nationals (thus allowing people that cann't do the week to complete a series - that would(should) give nine races - is this enough), and also allow people...

Re: 2010 events

So, who is actually a member at Oulton Broad who can approach the committee and say to them that there are lots of local classic dinghies and some from further away who would like a start at Oulton? What I am trying to get here are events for CVRDA members to sail at, rather than poetry, however po...

Re: 2010 events

So the furthest east out of all the listed events is London??? Please donn't forget Oulton Week where we are arranging NOW to give you three races a day, every day of the week..

Sorry, could have phrased that better - I'm not at my best with a week of night shifts!!

Re: Oulton Week

Speaking with the club today, considering the response we have had in just a few days, I think the club is prepared to give the CVRDA a start. But to get the three starta a day, we will need a commitment. At the moment we only have one guarnteed race a day- if you want three a day - commit before De...

Re: Oulton Week

Just looked at the commisioning picture of Maidie, that's smaller than Barnsie put on her when she was restorered (I am sure Mike is watching this forum to disagree with me!!). Maybe that is why she has Ladybirds old rig..

Sorry,,,,

Just re-alised my waffle has nothing to do with dinghys!!!!!!

Re: Oulton Week

Oulton Week never changes - the prize money still arrives in Brown Envelopes. Let's just hope we donn't have a politician arive!!!!

Re: Oulton Week

I donn't know Mr Swann, but quite a few years back we launched an Oulton Gull ( and I'm sure it's the only remaineing one) at Trumans (It sank!! - well it hadn't been afloat for 13 years, at least!!), and it did give Mathew Truman a chance to Sail. If we could have got it water tight, he would have ...

Re: Oulton Week

So Jim did that whet your appetite?..... And that is not what I would call her "proper rig". Her previuos (proper) rig was a full gaff rig main with topsail - it was a gorgeous rig... But Barnsie needed a big crew who really knew what they were doing to sail her - so hard to find.... Everyone wants ...

Re: Oulton Week

I'm not sure but normally it's about a pound a race with a discount for entering for the week.. will find out more later.. I would also like to add following on from what AG said, - the Broads River Cruisers are always looking for crew, if you make it known, you could always have a sail in one of th...

Re: Oulton Week

I'm in. Though it's difficult to plan too far ahead at the moment I'll try and commit to being there. Might have to leave the Finn in Norfolk so I can do Wroxham and Oulton. There would be no problem leaving the boat in the WOBYC dinghy park. It is not a secure compound, but in Lowestoft probably d...

Re: Oulton Week

To whet the appetite - some pretty pictures of Oulton Week - appologies for the lack of dinghy photo's, but it will emphasise the beauty of the sights to see... maidie.jpg Broads River Cruiser "Maidie" sailed by Mike Barnes, with "Whisper" in the background (Sailed By Bill Bacon - a famous Enterpris...

Re: Oulton Week

I have just negotiated THREE races a day for CVRDA boats under CVRDA handicaps!!! - however to do three races a day we will need commitment of at least TEN boats before DECEMBER - as this is when we have to submit our start times to the NSBA (Norfolk and Suffolk Boating Association). The NSBA is the...

Re: Merlin Rocket for sale #3201

I recognise that boat number, but am not sure if it's from my National 12 days or my Merlin days - what is the name of the boat????
