Worth a check....

When you are packing your boat, ready for POSH or the Nationals, have a quick look at your shroud terminals. A Burghfield boat suffered a broken carbon mast today, following failure of a shroud.

Below is a picture of the remaining shroud, looking as though it's also on borrowed time.....

Joint Open Meetings with Fire and Halo


The Class Association would like to make everyone aware of how the multiple class open meeting will work. There will be a separate start for the Blazes and a combined start for the Halo and Fire. We would like to be as inclusive as possible but need to ensure that rig swapping is not used to distort the results. So it has been proposed that which ever class you cross the startling line for your first race of an open meeting will be the one that is used for your results. If you subsequently change rigs you will be allowed to race but your results will not be counted for your second rig. Whilst this may not make all of you happy it does allow people to sail rather than sit on the shore when conditions change.
