Gutentag from Deutschland everyone.

I'll be back in the U.K. over christmas and want to cram in as much sailing as I can. SO, I'm planning to attend the Grafham grand Prix on Decmber 30th (assuming there is any wind at all...). Are any other Blazes considering attending?

Come on, everyone is on holiday and it's a fine opportunity to start working off the Christmas flubba. Great location, too.

Hopefully see you there!

Grisgott Jon, good to hear from you. There were two or three of us at Grafham last year. I won't be making the trip from the South Island this year as I am limiting myself to the two day events. This is largely due to the ferry company who couldn't organise their way out of an open paper bag and their tithe alone is £78-00 before I get driving.

Join in with us at Lymington if you fancy a play on the sea, we have seven Blazes here now and the gun goes 10.30 every Sunday throughout the year. Yours, Myles

Hi Jon,

This was a subject of conversation at the Burghfield Blaze Bar Committee meeting today. There seemed to be reasonable interest subject to weather and appropriate leave being granted.

Hi Jon

Mike B. is correct - a Burghfield barside contingent is talking about it ... and they usually 'do what they say' in my experience ! Might even be there in a Blaze myself testing shortlisted mast (otherwise doing excatly the same in an Icon !)

I will be there, having arranged to stay with friends who sail at Grafham.

Dunno which boat I'll appear with - will depend on the weather.

Nellie is entered to her first event without Nick at the helm. Anyone else going to join us?

Hi Mike

Not there myself this time .... damaged an elbow yet again playing at being a builder the other day so 'taking it easier' at BSC on Sunday. Should be good Blaze conditons if it is not too gusty - Good Luck.

I'm afraid I've decided to abandon Grafham this year. Did the Brass Monkey and froze my **** off. My fingers are still recovering 3 days on! Don't really have the gear for the proper cold stuff, perhaps next time.

Good luck to all and sundry!
