General National 12 chat / 12 bites back
« on: January 07, 2010, 08:38:52 PM »
Am feeling decidely depressed at present. Whilst sailing the Icebreaker on sunday fell over (again) whilst tacking andbent myThumb back, ouch. Finished the race as you do and suffered in silence. Monday thumb was swollen so a trip to casualty showed a break. Not justany simple break, the section of bone the ligaments had attached to had pulled away and lodged in the joint.
Attended Fracture clinic today and a going straight into surgery tomorrow morning to have the two bits srewed back together. Very impressive NHS but not nice.
Even worse consultant suggested it would be at least 4 months before i should consider sailing again. Too many ropes to pull and risk of permanent damage. So it looks like the Burton Week entry may be on hold.
Now you know why the boat is up for sale. I need something a bit less dangerous. Vintage maybe......

General National 12 chat / Up River YC Open 19th September
« on: September 10, 2009, 09:36:33 AM »
Its time to come to this pretty corner of Essex and try your hand a tidal river racing.
Think you are good enough? Then come on down.
Saturday 19th September. start of first race 12 noon.
2races, with Lunch break inbetween, both to count for the overall prize. As usual there willalso be a prizefor the first AC boat.
Lunch is provided within the entrance fee. I would tell you what this is but Penny hasn't done the maths yet,however it is unlikely to be much more than 6 to 7.00.
Please help out by indicating here if you are planning to attend and Penny can work out the maths!
If you want to stay over and do some River racing at Henley on the following day let us know and we can arrange campingat the club.

General National 12 chat / Burton socials
« on: May 21, 2009, 10:06:27 AM »
I notice the Burton Website shows the 'dress as a twelve party' for Saturday night and 'Crews union' for Sunday.
Thorpe Bay website shows 'dress as a twelve party' for Sunday night, Barbq for Sat.
Which is correct?
Wouldn't want to turn up for the barbq dressed as a twelve!

General National 12 chat / Weather Watch for Burton Week(end)
« on: May 15, 2009, 03:47:26 PM »
I like the comment on the Met office web site for the Brton week(end)
There is a possibility of some quite high temperatures for the southeast next Friday. Into the following week, and the weather remains unsettled for most. However, it may become drier and warmer for some southern and southeastern areas.
Itsthe Sothend-on-Sea micro-climate, I hope!
