Well you won't be the youngest there - Eddie is 11ish (I keep forgetting).

Maff Kiddle came when he was 14 I think in 2004.

Weymouth 04 Age 13, (in the massively oversize white gill top) still using the same BA, achieving not coming last in a single race, even if it resorted to match racing team scotland in one race! (2674)



Weymouth 07 Age 16, (spot the junior crewsaver BA) coming second, and weighing a little bit more!

I *think* Alex Paterson may have been younger than that the first time she won a Champs...

Ok, I have been forwarded this from BCSC as another possibility for accomodation.

"Thanks for thinking about us, at present we have 7 rooms vacant 4 Doubles, 1 Twin, 1 Family 3, and 1 Family 4.

All our rooms have been recently refurbished to include new comfortable beds and all have Digital flatscreen TVs with freeview, Hair driers, hospitality trays and complimentary toiletries.

As you know we are only about 100 metres from the sailing club and the cliff railway we  couldn't be better placed and as for our full English Breakfast you could"nt wish for a better start for a day on the water.

Our web site is www.babbacombepalms.com  If you would like to forward this e-mail to Cherub Association I would appreciate it.

Kind Regards

Ray & Denise

Babbacombe Palms Tel 01803 327087 "

Mate, the difference is that you're going to be twinning.

Haha we were both out on the trapeze in moderate winds today, and our combined weight is a good 160+ Kgs.

We total 127Kg, lets just say a good proportion of it is at the back !

We find we twin comfortably in probably  8-10kts of breeze, which is optimum weather, as we practice we're finding technique makes the weight generally less important, although i am not sure that with that sort of weight anything will save us in 20kts.

Campsite found

I put in a few calls and checked out a local Scout Campsite. They were happy to have us but due to there being kids on site everyone over the age of 18 would have to be CRB checked. They told me about they’re friends privately owned campsite and it looks ideal.

www.manorfarmcows.com

Location

A cow farm which has set aside a field for camping and caravanning. Looks nice on the website! A 10 minute drive from the club. Two pubs within walking distance. One with v.good food in a 'rural' setting, the other more of a high street pub.

Rates
per night

13 for a tent as big as you like
9 for smaller tent

I have a 12 man canvas palace along with a couple more if I can get my blagging socks on and they're needed. I'll try and get a mess tent for kit drying/ socialising etc. Space in currently available however, not at my expense. A couple of quid a night buys the privilege to kip in Chateau Burkin without the worry of having to deal with the beast (or any tent) when you get home.

Alternative currency includes; Beer, Carbon, Epoxy or lift back from the pub.



Basic facilities on site only include a shower and toilet block and a small shop selling “drinks and sweets and stuff”. Space is currently available but the quicker we book the better. BBQs are welcomed (and provided!) but no open fires unfortunately.

I'll be there for a day or two before racing starts.
