I have at last managed to upload the Notices of Race for the MidWinter Champs (FF Midwinter 2016 NoR) and the Mercedes Trophy (Mercedes Trophy 2016 NoR) to the new Datchet Water SC website.
This year we have decided to make the competition for the Winter Champs the four February Sundays of the DWSC Winter Warm Up to avoid the impact of one day’s bad weather – which seems to have plagued us in recent years. Hopefully this works for more people than it doesn’t! The SI’s for this will be the same as those for the Winter Warm Up which will be published in due course.
The Mercedes Trophy is back to its normal slot of the weekend after the Dinghy Show (12th and 13th March) – timed to give you all the chance to have a bit of a thrash on flat water before the Inland Champs. The Sailing Instructions for the Mercedes are also available online (Mercedes Trophy 2016 SI’s).
There is a £130 package for anyone wanting to sail at the club for Q1’16 which gives free entry to the MidWinter Championship, discounted members’ entry to the Mercedes Trophy Open Meeting and boat parking/ club sailing for the whole of Q1
Hopefully we’ll see lots of you at these events
Have a very happy Christmas and a (not too) merry New Year in the meantime
