General National 12 chat / Annandale
« on: April 29, 2021, 01:14:19 PM »
At the moment Annandale is still on although not definite. Annandale need an idea of numbers so if you are interested in coming to this event please let me know either through this page, Facebook or email me directly. It is a  one day event on Sunday the 23rd of May, probably 3 or 4 races. If anybody has not been to the event before and wants anymore information please contact me directly.

General National 12 chat / Crews wanted

I'm looking for crews for Ripon, Yeadon and Northampton if anybody is looking to add a bit of spice to their life. I can't provide shape shifting but nothing else can be discounted!

General National 12 chat / Crew wanted for Burton
« on: July 04, 2019, 10:46:44 PM »

Looking for a crew for Burton. No great pretentions to beating anybody except to the bar. More important to tackle it in the right spirit than to be a super crew, but I am in no position to be fussy.
You can email me at angusbeyts at gmail dot com.

Just a little reminder that The first Scottish event is on the 13th 14th April at Annandale. In the past this has been a really friendly enjoyable well run event, but if we do not get the numbers up there is a strong possibility that we will lose it. So if you have thought about coming in the past but never made it this might be your last chance. Mr Bill is available if anybody is  looking for a boat. The club is usually pretty good at finding crews, but don't leave it till the last minute. The NOR should be appearing on the web site shortly but if anybody wants any more details please contact me, my number is in the book or you can email me on angusbeyts at

I am looking for a crew for the GUL event at Burghfield on the 16th March. It will hopefully be my first run out in my Foolish with a newly fitted foiling rudder so anything could happen.

I am looking for a crew for Burton. I will either be sailing a vintage boat or an AC so it will be more like a pleasure cruise than serious racing!

General National 12 chat / Who is coming out to play
« on: April 03, 2018, 08:37:53 PM »
The first Scottish event of the season is at Annandale on the 21st and 22nd April. This is the first time we have been there for a few years so it would be good to get a good turn out. If anybody is needing crews the club may be able to find some but apparently they are not as numerous as in previous years so get in quick.
It would also be good to get a rough idea of numbers.

General National 12 chat / what plans
« on: February 09, 2018, 09:41:18 PM »

I was half way through cooking breakfast with my day all planned out when there was a dull thud or a cu chunck and there lying on the door mat was a buff envelope.......could be this it really...yes it was, after a couple of months of keeping my right foot above my right hip with nothing better to do than watch begin hunt (Well to be honest in January in mid Scotland !), now I was finally mobile again Ed's latest creation had landed on my door mat (Trendy or not we still have one....a door mat I mean.) Well breakfast burnt. coffee boiled dry.......or was it the other way about. Anyway all plans went out the window as I tucked into Ed's marvellous medicine for a broken leg a least it would have been if it had arrived a month or so earlier, but as I so often say at the start line and slightly less frequently at the finish line better late than never.
Anyway Ed thanks for another brilliant job. Pity you had to give so much space to that idiot who thinks spelling is a kind of flour and grammar is where the posh boys go to school, but your comments where great I had forgotten all about the wine and the iPod...

General National 12 chat / Just a minor point!
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:01:54 PM »
Just a minor point about the GUL results but I thought 3410 was an AC boat am I wrong?

Who's coming out to play at this unique event with sea sailing on the Saturday and river sailing on Sunday. Plus the fact it is well known that the big boys (Camms and stewarts and a Like) are to scared to venture this far north so it is a good opportunity to improve your GUL standing.
Also it is probably the only event that you could possibly get arrested for harassing sheep, just ask local boy Ian Purkis who got so lost on the Palnackie race he ended up in a field of sheep! Ian is looking after the infamous ladybird book of sailing at the moment!
Looking forward to seeing you all there.

General National 12 chat / How to repair a drysuit!
« on: August 18, 2016, 01:27:12 PM »
On studying the weather forecast I thought I might be spending a fair bit of time swimming. Time, I thought to repair that drysuit. last time I had worn it I had ripped one of the wrist seals in my rush to get to the loo. When I had previously done this job I had found something approximately the right diameter and stuck that down the sleeve to make things easier. Of course I couldn't remember that I had used last time and the only thing I could find was the Misses favourate mug it, was a near perfect fit (You know what is coming next). I slapped on a good globb or two of Aquasure and carefully folded the seal over the sleeve, perfect, I decided to rap a bit of gaffer tape round just to make sure, perfect job, neates I have everdone. All that was left to do was to remove the mug, this is where my troubles began. Stretch as the seal is it was not prepared to stretch over the handle, I could grab the bottom of the mug but it was not going to come out with out taking the seal with it. so I tried up the sleeve, magicians may be able to do it but not me, the mug remained resolutly wedged in the cuff. Something had to give but I did not want to destroy my perfect repair, I would never be able to do it so well again, but then I did not want to spent Burton week in intensive care (too wind or not too windy).
I managed to solve this tricky conundrum with a trip to the local shops, yes they still had them in stock, infact I was able to buy 2 (insurance against future mis fortune). On returning home a quick blow with a hammer sorted the problem, although it might have been cheaper to get the suit professionally repaired!

General National 12 chat / Measurer wanted
