The Best tea of the year!! 4th and 5th October

Post by roger » Tue Sep 16, 2008 2:36 pm

That got your attention.

Now we have had a jolly nice sail at Corus with sunshine and some windshifts its time for hospitality and more windshifts at SHEARWATER. Full details to follow but along the lines of 11.00-11.30 first (Practice)race. Food. Two more races with more food and beer from our local micro brewery.
Sunday 2 or 3 races and the best tea of the year including Angies cake.
So basically lots of food and some sailing. :D

An idea of numbers would be useful

I'll be seeing you all there - have been promised a boat from Mr Barlow - but rather worried it may be a cotton sailed Topper!!

Hi all

At the moment I have no course booked for this weekend so Rod and I hope to come down early on Sat with Peggie 199.

Anyone got space in the drive for us to sleep in the van/camper??

Keith - we'll find you a parking space as we're about 10 mins (max) from lake.

Ah - that explains the accustomed late arrivals of What a Lark removals. They generally are lying in bed , hear the warning gun and decide to get down to the club - hadn't realised you guys were in earshot!!

If its not to windy i may be looking for someone to ride the plank on Shoestring. It may only be for a couple of races.

Anyone as brave as Chris (who has run away for the weekend) :shock:

I should add that this is THE event for Cotton sails!!!
Last we ran the Cotton Sail Challenge on the sunday's three races. This will be repeated again but we are thinking of extending it to include pre 1965 boats that are sailing in completely (well 99.9%) original/old condition. So nothing updated - including sails - and you can be eligable for an extra trophy.

PS I can lend a pair of cotton sails to a suitable merlin and can probably borrow a set for a firefly, let me know
