The first of the OK Open Meeting circuit is planned for 16 March at Burghfeld Sailing Club.
It’s a great location for the Thames Valley, South West, and Midland sailors to meet up. A short Sharp racing programme is planned to help get the Winter cobwebs blown away and sharpen up those tacks and gybes.
Where is it? RG7 4AP
Who’s Going? Not sure why not add your names to this thread. Despite a large number of boats on the way back from N.Z Burghfeld boasts a good building fleet so there’ll be plenty of local support.
How much? Only £15 if you pre register on the club site by 13 March.
Anything else we should know? Plan ahead if taking a double trailer. There’s a height barrier on the gate. Either call the club ahead or make contact with Deryck who’ll sort it for you.
What’s the weather going to be like? Better than last year!
I’m not going to make it but the FB event page is showing 5-6 non-Burghfield sailors going or interested and I believe there are 9 boats at Burghfield, although I think Tom’s may still be getting refurbished. Hopefully will be a good turnout even with the 10 or so boats still making their way back from NZ
I be there of course. NoR be available any day and you can pre enter on Burghfield website. Tom will post soon with the correct links. Of the 9 boats at the club Nick’s boat in the container Tom’s boat having a major overhaul though he be sailing his 12 as will be Rob Starling. So we are still hoping for the rest of us to be on the water.
A few visitors would be nice too
