If you own a Classic or Silver fleet Fifteen and have fallen out of the way of going to open meetings because of all the latest gold fleet boats romping away, then we have some good news for you.
We are holding a Classic and Silver Fleet National Championship on 12 and 13th June at Grafham Water Sailing Club with the aim of serious but fun racing amongst like boats with a strong emphasis on camaraderie and we would love to see as many of you as possible coming along to join us. The event will join with the existing FF Open, but there will be a separate start with results for silver and classics separated into their respective fleets.
We want to see as many boats out as we can and it doesn’t matter if your boat hasn’t got all the latest gear, there will be something for everyone and you will be sailing with boats of a similar age and condition. We would also love to see as many wooden boats as we can find, so if you have one that has been hidden away, now is the time to get her back on the water for this special event. Whatever your boat is made of, we will have some concours d’elegance prizes for the best turned out boats, most original, etc., so get polishing. We also hope to have various ‘hotshots’ around to offer advice and tips on setting up your boat or making sure everything runs smoothly.
As many of you know, Grafham is an excellent piece of water being centrally located, with good access from major routes and the club itself has excellent facilities and is well used to holding major events, so we can be assured of well-run races and off water amenities.
So, put the date in your diary and keep an eye out on the FF Class website for the NOR and further details. We look forward to seeing you there.
