Calendar Events / Open Meeting 6 Inland Championships Queen Mary SC November 2/3rd
« Last post by andy_peters on October 15, 2019, 03:00:46 PM »
The last open of the year is our Inlands at QMSC.  As usual bed/floor space available at Chez Peters or if you prefer there is a Travelodge and Premier in at Sunbury Cross.  We will try and make the Italian this time  ;D

At the recent blast we (the committee) made an executive decision as a trial to run the overall results of the Inlands on a handicap basis using the following:

Cherubs:  PY 903  (05 rules)
Classic Cherubs:  PY 970  (97 rules and before)
Foiling Cherubs:  PY 750  (sorry Hobbits)

This is a trial basis with a view to getting feedback on whether widening the field to have a crack at the top places will encourage more boats to sail - or not.  Comments on this approach welcome.

Further details on the actual open meeting arrangements to follow but known details are:

W/L course with a spreader and leeward gate
Shared with the 700 and 4000 (separate starts)
3 races per day
Likely start times 12pm Sat and 11am Sunday

Martyn & Jamie took king tubby, both were suffering with man flu. Saturday was pretty mental, during the briefing the race officer announced that he was reading 20 knots gusting 28 knots. after a couple of swims getting out to the start there was a very long postponement because the race officer couldn't anchor the committee boat. sadly in those winds the trapezoid course was far from ideal, the top reach was far too tight, the run seemed to be about 6 inches long and the bottom reach you could carry on if you didn't get hit by a gust, which of course we did. after much swimming and some fairly epic upwind speed. we decided enough was enough and called it quits. the 20 second presentation to camera on why people should sail a cherub was a lot of fun as we picked it up and carried it into shot fully rigged whilst the sailors of much heavier boats  looked on wondering what we were doing. the galley laid on a lovely roast dinner.

Sunday dawned to a lighter wind and a pursuit using the length of the whole lake, a much better course despite us choosing some interesting routes on some of the downwind legs a very reasonable 39th was achieved.

Poppy - Jamie & Georgie
King Tubby - Martyn & Jay

Saturday

the water at Draycote was pretty congested with a youth event and the buzz iso and K1 open, but we found space to have a nice sail in 10 knots of breeze. A bit of time to work on some rigging issues and technique. Jamie even found the time to put a little video together

Sunday

after a late breakfast arrival at the club showed less than 5 knots of breeze and forecast to drop as the day went on. All decided it was a good idea not to go out.

Unfortunately Saturday is looking sub-epic and Sunday bearable.  I will come up Sat PM to see if anyone is patient enough to have gone out and we intend to sail Sunday

I have asked if we can have a boat for photography but it's a resourcing issue and has had to be referred on.

Yes I'm sure we can get you in a rib to take some photos.  Just let me know roughly when you may turn up so I can be found
