Yup it's also most that time of year for our yearly 12 open.


The plan hasn't changed 3 races starting before the club fleet all for the princely sum of 5.


Briefing 10:30


First race 11 o'clock


Lunch with race 2 and 3 to follow.


So who's thinking of coming along?

Will be good to see you both  :D


Last year I think we ran the last two races back to back to be off the water by 4 o'clock. If needs be and everyone is happy we might be able to wrap up sooner than that.

Hello


Just a bit of an update.


Milton Keynes SC changing rooms have been under going refurbishment unfortunately the project has over run. This means only the disabled toilet will be available and the changing rooms should be available for changing only but the showers will not be. Other than this the running of the open meeting will be unaffected.


On another note we are planning to offer bacon butties for rigging and plenty of cakes for tea time.


see you on the 18th June

Morning Yoteeez


Due to a number of factors including the MKSC changing rooms being out of action the 12 open tomorrow has been postponed till the 30th July.


See you all in July

Hello Andy


Sorry I didn't realize you were planning on coming along, I hope postponing the event hasn't messed up your weekend plans to much.


To make it up to everyone we planning a sausage sizzle for lunch on 30th.


How are you getting on with Ella BTW?

Yes, it was a last minute decision to come as we still need to pick our days.  As it turns out Sunday was completely devoid of wind here in Bristol so maybe not so great in MK either.


Ella is going well for a slightly tatty 27 year old racing dinghy.  We won our Wednesday evening series race tonight and to the delight of my son we're temporarily leading the series (won't last)!


30th July is possible for us; I'll keep an eye on the forecast  :)

Yeah it turned out to be a good call in the end as the wind never really showed up in MK as well. The good thing I got few jobs done on the other boat.


Good to near you are getting on well with Ella, I remember her when Nigel Waller had her and she's a well built ship.

Unfortunately now Bouncer's mast is in 2-piece form, it looks like I won't make it to this one. :(

Yup it's all still on, changing rooms finished but I'm not sure I can promise a BBQ lunch.


Sorry to hear news about the your mast Chris hopfully it won't be to long till it's fixed.
