If I had thought about this earlier I think I would have added it to the 2017 Fixture list.
Something slightly different and maybe to some members liking. Coniston SC will be hosting their annual regatta in the month of May 27/28/29th. Maybe we should be considering adding this or a similar 3 day event to our fixtures on an annual basis to provide more options for everybody. Coniston are offering handicap racing for 3 days, we could extract our own results at the end. BQ and camping on site. Traditional beers brewed locally not to be missed. I think it could be really good fun. We could encourage some youth sailing and maybe invite others to try an OK Dinghy. Take the demo boat along. Coniston SC was the club David my son learned to sail and I sailed my Nat 12 there. They are a very welcoming club and I am sure you would like the event. The camping is good and the local village has great pubs and good eating places. Plenty to do for the family.
I should point out that the event clashes with Bourne End Week which has OK class sailing. It also clashes with the Worlds In Barbados. But maybe the family ok sailor or the experienced sailors might just fancy a change and enjoy a relaxing holiday atmosphere event for a change.
