A 3 day Nationals this year at a venue we last attended 10 years ago (they remember us fondly).

The race programme is likely to be as follows:

Friday - 4 * 30ish minute races starting after midday (we are on our own)
Sat/Sunday 3* 40ish minute races per day (shared with the Solutions but the fleets will be kept as separate as possible - likely they will sail an outer loop)
No race to start after 15:00 on Sunday and prize giving ASAP after racing

There will be evening entertainment Fri/Sat night.

It is likely there will be (free?) camping next to the club available Thur to Sunday - though my experience is don't leave anything in your tent whilst on the water.

Sailing will be in Milford Haven which should be near perfect for Cherub racing.  I hope we can break the 20 boat mark this year.

More details to follow - but who will be joining Usagi?

As I am Pembrokeshire based would be rude not to turn up.

Banshee is almost certainly going to be there, most likely with Rosie and myself sailing her - looking forward to it :)

Don’t think we’re going to make it this year, as can’t get time off work.

anyone need a crew or helm for nationals?

Lots of experience in Fireballs and 505 - but not yet sailed in cherubs  8)
65kg and probably a bit rusty, but I'm fit and super keen!

Based in South Wales and happy to practice as much as possible over next few months.

Ultimately looking to get my own boat.

cheers
Shane
