General National 12 chat / Pevensey B&B accom available - 8th June
« on: June 01, 2013, 12:13:57 PM »
Having booked our B&B for Pevensey next weekend, we're now not coming ... boat not fit to sail.  So, we have a double room booked for one night now available in a beachside location very close to the club.  We've already paid Ł60 for it - offers are welcome.  Call me on 020 8783 9243 or 07717 581632, or email [][/mail].

General National 12 chat / Olympics
« on: August 03, 2012, 03:32:43 PM »
Pretty riverting stuff at Weymouth.  Ainslie goes in to the medal race on Sunday 2pts behind the Danish sailor.  Assuming he beats him by one place and with points counting double, it's a tie ... but how do they break it in the Olympics? Numbers of firsts or result in medal race?

General National 12 chat / Ranelagh Open - 1st July
« on: June 27, 2012, 11:12:05 AM »
Just a quick plug for the Ranelagh Open this Sunday, 1st July.  The start is 1130 prompt.  As usual it will be one long race on the Tideway for the prstigious Silver National Trophy.  I'll be there with Rock Lobster trying to remember how to sail.  I'm sure that Ranelagh would appreciate knowing who else is coming.
See you there.

General National 12 chat / Ranelagh Winter Open 2012 & Thames Area lunch
« on: September 27, 2011, 09:51:53 PM »
A date for your diaries - the Ranelagh Winter Open Meeting will take place on Sunday 22nd January 2012, with a 1200 start.  As in past years, the sailing will be followed at c.1430 by the annual Thames Area lunch and prizegiving for 2011.  Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether you have sailed in the Thames Area this year or not.  More details (ticket prices etc) nearer the time but do let us know whenever you can if you'd like to reserve places. 

Who will be crowned Thames Area Champions for 2011?  Graham and Zoe have already qualified and are leading, followed by Dave and Charlie Peacock from the upper reaches of the Thames (Malvern!).  However, a number of boats need only one more meeting to add their names to the qualifiers' list with John and Mandy holding three firsts and promising to make a post-lunch appearance at the final meeting at Twickenham this coming Sunday.  The tension mounts ...

General National 12 chat / Ranelagh Open Sunday 3rd July
« on: June 27, 2011, 08:36:31 PM »
Time to give a shout out for this Sunday's open at Ranelagh.  As usual, just one long race - with a 1500 start time advertised on the club's programme.  I know already of three or four boats coming but everyone is welcome - to sail for one of the Twelves' oldest trophies.

General National 12 chat / Spinnaker open 12th June crew wanted
« on: May 27, 2011, 10:16:27 PM »
Anne is away that weekend so I'm crewless.  If there's anyone out there less than 9 stone who fancies a day in the front of Rock Lobster, I'd love to hear from them! 

Ian, Simon ... is there anyone in the Spinnaker cadet fleet who might be available?  Thanks

General National 12 chat / Thames Area Results
« on: October 18, 2010, 10:00:29 PM »
With all 2010 open meetings now completed, it's time to congratulate John & Mandy Thornton who have won this year by one point from  Jon Ibbotson & various crews.  51 boats took part in at least one event.

Prize giving at Ranelagh on 5th December, as previously advertised.

This is just to give you all advanced warning that the prestigious Ranelagh Winter Open Meeting, followed by the annual Thames Area lunch will take place before Christmas - on Sunday 5th December, because of the tides in January.  The race start time will be 1145.

Children's lunch will be served at 1230ish and the grown-ups will eat after the race and packing up at around 1415.  

The racing will be testing and competitive on this famous part of the Tideway, and the race will count as the first open meeting in the Thames Area 2011 series.  Anne and Melissa will be doing their usual great stuff in the kitchen.  Fun will be had and everyone is welcome for the race, the lunch or both, from anywhere in the country.

Please make a note in your diary and post here or email so we have an idea of the numbers.  We'll ask for lunch payments in advance nearer the time.

General National 12 chat / Island Barn Open Pursuit 26th September
« on: September 10, 2010, 10:34:02 PM »
Please note for anyone who was planning to go ... an email from Mike Storey:  'Sorry to say that the info I was given about the IBRSC event on 26th was wrong – it’s not an open event this year and the format has changed too. I’ve only just found this out today. I don’t think we can have the 12s turning up as was the original idea. Sorry for the late notice.'

General National 12 chat / Ranelagh Open Sunday 11th July
« on: July 05, 2010, 04:55:54 PM »
Ranelgh's summer open - the next meeting in the Thames Area Series - is on Sunday 11th July.  The start time is advertised as 1300 on Ranelagh's website.  The usual format is just one long race for the wonderful historic Silver National Trophy.  Ranelagh always provides a challenging and entertaining sail on the Tideway above Putney Bridge with warm hospitality from the club.

The next meeting in the Thames Area is at Desborough, this coming Saturday.  I haven't heard from the club but the normal format is 3 races, first start at 1100.  Anne and I are planning to be there with N3533.  Desborough offers traditional river sailing in a lovely setting and an active home fleet.

« on: March 09, 2010, 05:40:00 PM »
The Warming Pan is nearly upon us, with races across both days for Twelves as one of the selected classes.  Details are here:
It has come too soon for those with new boats on order.  Anyone going? (and if so, please could you make a note of the Twelve results for me, thanks).
