Derwent Handicap May 18th / Vintage Champs May 19th TVSC
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:57:18 AM »
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?

Greetings! 24 days to go and we already have some entries! Dave Peacock, John Sears, Brian Herring and Graham Camm have indicated that they are coming along, as too have Gerald Copsey (to sail Mr Jones) and James Dalby (TVSC Laser star!) in Shotgun. And Angus Beyts is travelling all the way from darkest Scotland to join us. We would like to get to double figures and don't forget that the Sunday is also a Midland Area Open for all boats. I still have a few clinker yots awaiting (competent!) helms and if you would like to sail one of the Turner Collection please let me know asap - just awaiting Patrick Hamilton's reply about N2524. Starfish and Smuggler are still in the barn. Sadly I won't be sailing; not yet recovered enough (but hope to be ok for NWNW!). Px  8)

This has just gone out to all TVSC members:

National 12 Vintage Championships

The National 12 Vintage (i.e. wooden clinker boats) Championships are being held at Trent Valley for the first time on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May 2019.

The format will be as follows:

Saturday - there will be three races (briefing at 12:30 and first race at 13:00) and the scoring by "Derwent Handicap". The first race is scratch and the times are taken to work out a handicap system for the second and third races, which will be pursuit races. The slowest boat in the first race will start first in the second and third and the fastest goes off last. The aim is to have each race running for an hour and if the handicapping goes to plan all the boats will finish the last two races at the same time!

Roger Briton is the race officer assisted by Paul Turner, and Megan Derrick; Christine Preston will also help with "meet 'n greet". The rescue boat will be on the water for the RYA training (hence the later start time for the racing) and any volunteers to assist launching, flags etc (or even just to watch!) will be more than welcome.

On Saturday night there will be a Club Social Night being Skittles and a buffet - more info later.

Sunday - this will also be a Midland Area Open Meeting with all the boats, vintage and modern starting together. There will be prizes for both the Open Meeting and the Vintage boats.

First race will be at 11:00 with the second before lunch and the third immediately afterwards.

Greetings! We seem to have eight confirmed entries with one more possible. We really would like to get to double figures and there are still one or two Turner Collection vintage yots awaiting helms. Both Starfish and Smuggler were extracted from storage yesterday with the help of John Sears and are resting on trailers ready to sail! RSVP! Px  :-*

Hi Paul
I hope you got my email from work but just to confirm I will be attending with Gail Kaye as crew if there is a boat available.
Cheers
Patrick Hamilton

Thank you to all who came along and supported the event whether sailing, organising, helping or just gongoozerling. Nine clinker boats out on the Saturday and 10 all-comers on the Sunday. Think it all went well even if there was not a lot of wind. There will be a full report very soon. To make certain that everyone who has a vintage N12 keeps the dates clear in their diaries we will get the dates out very much sooner - no excuses! Px  8)
PS N2524 Ethelred (a China Doll what my Dad bought for me in 1970 is now officially up for sale - I've got the original China Doll) :'(
