I'm still looking for a crew if anybody is interested.

Is the rugby going to be screened at the club before the sailing? I don’t particularly want to have to miss the first race by having to stay at home to see the game.

I too wish to watch the rugby.


With a 1200 first race that should be possible.  If not watching it at the club we will need to find somewhere local to host us.  I believe they are called pubs!

Hmm! Not sure being in a pub before going sailing is a good idea ……. especially with a Scottish crew!  :-\

Your Scottish crew could always helm if you get carried away on the pop  ;)

Is there not a saying 'behind every good helm is a great Scottish crew'. Speaking of which as I have singularly failed to find a crew but am committed to coming I am available to crew, although sadly I possibly to not quite fit into the great Scottish crew category!

Angus, I usually find my Great Scottish Crew in front of me ......

Yes that probably helps. But maybe not tomorrow if you enjoy yourself too much in the pub before hand ;)

Thanks to everyone at Northampton for a great weekend. The fact we were able to sail all 6 races, albeit not quite to the original schedule, is a testament to the quality of the organisation and flexibility the club was willing to show.


Thanks too to GUL for sponsoring the series for the past 4 (5?) years. Their gear is the best I have used. Sorry to learn they feel the need to move on.


Congratulations to Graham and Zoe on winning the GUL finale, the Inland Championship and the GUL series.
