Hello all

I would like to pass on Team Subversion apologies for absence once again. This time we are going to miss one of the best events and lunches on the calendar due to Kerry's sister has deciding to get married the same weekend. There is also a small issue with me not being allowed by the doctors to go sailing after 'slightly' breaking my leg.

With luck we should be on the water for the next event.

John Sears will be bringing Punkawallah with Catherine crewing. Lunches please.  :)

Greetings. We only have three confirmed entries to date. In fairness to all those at TVSC who have volunteered to run the event (and to give up their Sunday sailing) I need six (6) boats to make this meeting viable. Decision time is tomorrow evening (Thursday) after club racing. RSVP (even if it is to say that you can't make it but will be at the September VIntage event at Trent Lock). Paul :-\


Team Gore are intending to sail, if it goes ahead


We are sorry, Paul. On balance Burwain is the better option for us.


Paul - N3448 will be there.

Just one more and we are "GO"!  ;D

We now have six definite entries being John Sears, Graham Camm (in one of my boats to give the rest of us a chance!), Ian Gore, Peter Miatt, Gerald Copsey and me! Also hopefully Bosun Bob from Milton Keynes, and anyone else who would like to enjoy the delights of sailing on the Trent!

Sunday - Trent Valley at its best (sun, good breeze, perfect courses, lots of very close racing, fab catering and lots of idiot river traffic for entertainment) and a big thank you to the six visiting crews for supporting us at Trent Lock.

Full report (hopefully with a few Kevan photos) soon but the results were:

1st Ian Gore & Alex - Up River (1st Overall) 2x1st and a second.
2nd Graham Camm and Zoe - Burghfield formerly TVSC (1st AC boat*) 1st & 2xsecond
3rd John Sears and Kathryn - Notts County formerly TVSC (1st Four Planker) 2 x third and a sail washing.

* = 1st Trent Valley boat being N3157 Perfect Kiss!

Don't forget the TVSC Vintage Open Meeting in September! Px  8)
