Title: Gul series #1 @ Burghfield 16th March
Post by: grazz on March 10, 2019, 06:47:12 PM
The 2019 National 12 Gul Series kicks off on Saturday the 16th March at Burghfield Sailing Club, near Reading. The event is a sprint series with eight short races which are fast, frantic and fun. In addition to the sprint racing we have a tuning clinic, crews race and lots of cake (for after racing). Also handicaps will be applied allowing older designs to show what they can do.
9:45am   Tuning Clinic
 10:15am Briefing
 11:00am First race
 After lunch crews race
 After racing - tea and cake

It's still looking gusty tomorrow, but the baseline wind is about 20kts so Burghfield are still happy to run the open meeting. There may be a change of racing format, which will be decided tomorrow morning depending on conditions. And even if it is blowing grannies out of trees, we've got some back-up plans so do come along anyway for a chat, some tuning and rules tips, a surprise building challenge and importantly, CAKE!
