Start your season at the MidWinter Championships
The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions for the UKFFA MidWinter Championships on 31st January 2015 are now on the Datchet Water SC website and have also been added to the UKFFA permanent calendar. This will be a ‘sprint style’ format to get as many races into the day as possible
The competition will be followed by a social event – which is also open to those who don’t want to sail during the day. Rod Carr – former British Olympic sailing and RYA supremo – has very kindly agreed to join us for a ‘conversation with structure’ over a beer – ranging across the Olympics, the UK Sailing Scene, UK Sport and even sailing rules/ self-policing.
DWSC is also offering packages for the MidWinters in combination with the Winter Warm Up (every Sunday in February) and The Mercedes Trophy Open Meeting (28th/ 29th March) so you can sail against some pretty serious competition while leaving your boat in one place. Details of this package are in the attached flyer and are in the MidWintter Championship NoR

p.s. if you could let me know as early as possible if you plan to attend the evening with Rod Carr, it would help us to plan for catering provision
