Gold and Silver Fleets

Next week sees the start of the GT series. May we know who is in which fleet and if there is a promotion / relegation criteria in place. For example……Does Deryck’s winning performance from last year’s silver fleet see him promoted to the Gold fleet?8th April 2016 at 8:08pm #8728
I thought we had decided not to have 1 day events on the GT series this year. :roll:9th April 2016 at 3:09pm #8729andyt15064Participant
How on earth can Cookham and Bristol Corinthian be GT events? Come on let’s sort this!

Well what can I say Paul, I certainly planned my GT series on the list you have but if you now look at the list it clearly has Bristol and Cookham included. ? Low entry 1 day events should not be on the list but hey that is only my opinion. One could argue that if they are included it might encourage people to travel. But if you take that example then perhaps all the meetings should be on the list.10th April 2016 at 2:13pm #8732andyt15064Participant
If all the meetings are on the list we have the Frensham Porringer Travellers’ Trophy – hey presto!
I agree with Ken that only two day meetings, preferably on tidal water, should be GT events. Maybe these should also be Worlds Qualifiers.
Does Overy Staithe fulfil the criteria?

Andy nice to see you active again. My suggestion to the committee was to have the GT series at selected 2 day events, one of these events MUST include the nationals.
The end results of the series could also have been the ranking list. Not that we currently need a ranking list but it could have been another motivator in attendances. Ken.12th April 2016 at 6:43am #8734DelboyParticipant
The technical hitch in the computer has been resolved.
The GT series will consist of the 6 original events with 5 to qualify.
And yes I will be moved up to the gold fleet this year.
See many of you this Saturday at Bristol Corthinian.
