Reply To: Nationals 2008
Jon – the questions you ask are on the agenda for the committee meeting at Felpham tomorrow. Please let the committee know what you think. Should the Nationals be a 3 or 4 day event (a lot of people were actually at Felpham for 4 days this year with training on the Thursday).
Should it be on the Aug Bank holiday weekend? It wasn’t at Sunderland and the turnout was poor – or was that because it was in the north?
If we go for 4 days does it tie us to Aug Bank holiday weekend so people only have to take one day’s holiday?
We still have a lot of students and teachers (and advisers!) sailing OKs and could lose them if the nationals are not in school holiday time.
What do people think? We need to get back to 50+ fleets at our show piece event in the year – the National Championships.
