Title: Shoreham SC National 12 Open - 15-16 June
Post by: Sophie on June 03, 2019, 09:47:54 AM
We're excited to be running a National 12 open on 15 and 16 June 2019. Shoreham SC offers safe and easy launching from our new slipway within Shoreham harbour, and a short sail out to the best sailing water on the south coast. The Notice of race is available on our website but in brief;
It would be useful for our planning to have an idea of how many boats are coming so please reply if you intend to come or email ssccommodore@hotmail.com

Thanks
Sophie

3492 is already there! We've been sailing her from Shoreham since April - not been ideal weather for learning how to sail a 12, only last bank-holiday week-end we learnt that feathering too hard in 25 knots can result in going backwards and going backwards quickly results in a capsize. I can report that the new ramp is a huge improvement on the moving wooden sleepers and that the grass is growing nicely. Shoreham SC is as friendly as it has ever been - it's been a nice welcome back after 19 years away.

Very Hungry Caterpillar will be there and we'd like a camping spot please.

In addition to the racing, we are planning a talk on sea sailing and there will be bar boats and other games on Saturday evening, so come along and join the fun!

Thanks to everyone that has let us know you're intending to come - it really does help with planning. There is plenty of room for camping, and space for campervans.

Hi Sophie,
Unexpectedly the Full Monty should be showing up at Shoreham this weekend. Looking forward to seeing if we can remember how to sail it!
Also hoping that the weather is going to improve, so will be bringing the tent, glad to hear that there is plenty of room.

Cheers, John

Hi Sophie,
A weekend logistics question for you - does Shoreham SC have a policy with regards to dogs being on-site? We are struggling a bit to rehouse the guide dog pup this weekend at the moment.
Cheers, John

I've replied to John offline, but if there is anyone else planning to bring dogs, then they are welcomed at Shoreham SC although we request that they be kept under control

Great weekend.  I am told it was epic!  Thanks to all at Shoreham.  I only got one race myself but loved it.

Thanks to everyone at Shoreham SC for organising an excellent weekend, it was great to get in some real sea sailing. Andrea and I had a blast!


Fabulous to see both Meadowcroft boys helming and giving a very good account of themselves.


Thanks also to GUL for their generous sponsorship.

Great racing throughout the fleet, very close for everyone I think. Always good when we turn up with more boats than the other fleet too!


Great weekend!
