Bough Beech Open 2013
I have been asked to forward this regarding next years planned open (9/3/2013)

Dear all,

Blaze, Contender & Phantom sailors, if you could circulate the below via your forums & associations to achieve maximum coverage I'd be grateful.

(The Contender Ass' have nominated the event as the 2nd Travellers trophy event of the year so should mean a reasonable number )

I would have attached the NoR & SI's for this one day 3 class event but 'IT' problems this end have made life difficult...once sorted I'll send them out in a couple of weeks. The objective is to have a good days racing with class starts for each of these similar classes of boats (they are raced in the Bough Beech handicap class club races) and to attract 10 of each class, more of course would be a bonus.

The entry fee including lunch to speed up lunch time turn round time will be 14 quid.


We should have a full reservoir to ourselves, I've a good race officer lined up and the galley are briefed to feed us...in fact lunch is included in the entry fee and the galley will be open from 08:30hrs for any one wanting a bacon butty up to a full breakfast, briefing at 10:00 & 1st start 11:00. Feedback from my Inland Championships at Rutland was for 4 shorter races, so 2 pre & 2 post lunch, 3 to count ... weather permitting.

On a similar tack - One reason for choosing this date is that it follows on from the clubs 8 week end / 16 race open Icicle event running Jan - Feb. If you are looking for some keen racing, perhaps while your sea club is dormant may be I can tempt you, the estates officer does not mind you leaving your boat between the two events. Run using the average lap handicap system the fleet is split into asymmetrics racing between the windward & leeward marks whilst the rest are sent round a wing mark or two with every one racing through the line each lap. 30-40 boats make up the two fleets. The NoR is on the club web site, if you've any queries drop me a line other wise details are on the club web site.

Many thanks and fingers crossed for a good breeze.
