Your Vintage Champs Needs You!
We have a new venue at Trent Valley Sailing Club and a lot of effort is being put in to make it a fun weekend. Access to the club has been improved with the re surfacing of the road and you can now get there without disappearing down a pot hole. There's the Derwent Handicap, food and a skittles night, real ale, overnight camping on the beautiful lawn, breakfast, the Vintage Champs and a Concours d'Elegance. The event is combined with an open meeting on the Sunday and you compete in that as well.
Are you coming?
Boats / Re: N3379 Eat My Shorts
« Last post by Jsm74 on April 16, 2019, 09:12:10 PM »
Just picked up 'Eat my shorts', bought with intention of teaching our daughter how to sail and refreshing my dinghy knowledge, as I have been racing big boats for quite a while with only sporadic dinghy sailing.

I spent today setting it up on the drive to check everything over. Seems complete and up together with regards to rig and hardware, sadly the Hull needs more work than anticipated having been sat in a field for sometime.

Made a start stripping the patchy varnish and found a few areas of 'dark' soft wood, hopefully it will just require some routering and localised repairs, anything more and my expertise will let me down...

If all goes well we hope to be sailing it at Shearwater, which is part of the Longleat estate.

Are you good at persuading people to get involved?
Do you want to see your name in print?
If you said yes, then you could be the next editor of the world-renowned (ish) N12 Newsletter!  ;)
You don't need to be an expert in document editing software, Ed Willett (previous editor) is happy to give a tutorial.
