Final Fling this w/end

Post by Ed » Mon Oct 08, 2007 6:48 pm

If the weather holds.....

Stu, Dave Lee and I are thinking about going down to Plymouth Sound for the Final Fling in ICs

Start on Saturday at 13.00hrs - 3 races and 3 on Sunday.

I know it used to always be held outside barrier, but unlikely these days.

If anyone is looking for a good sail and a bit of a laugh have a think about it.

Any of you Roadford guys be able to make it?

Give me a call if you want any more info.

cheers

May try and make it......if I can get hold of a cheap tow bar.

but the idea of towing up in the Landie ain't much fun...but you never know.

Oxford is normally a fun IC event as long as you make a miss on the traditional Sat eve curry.

I wonder how many boats will go as some boats will I think already be (or shortly be) loaded up for worlds.

Not heard that the Worlds boats will miss Oxford. My boat is 50/50 for it as I am currently having to do a completely unplanned complete restoration, which is not what I expected to do with a boat only 15 years old... She's having to have far more work done on her than any Cherub of mine has ever needed!

Stand corrected.

Couldn't remember when boats were being packed, but remembered some talk on IC forum about the change of dates of the 'inlands' from Oxford due to it being too close to packing....but it was all off top of head and bound to be wrong.

Gahh - K78 is not going to be ready in time. She is now down to bear wood and gel coat, which took a lot of effort! I woder how many pounds lighter now? Wich I had weighed her first, it might have been interesting.

Forecast is good for the rest of this week - so good I'm taking some leave to decapitate the Leylandii without wasting good sailing time :D

Final Final Fling!!@Starcross

Post by fatboyfinn » Tue Oct 09, 2007 7:44 pm

Could I interest anybody in our RNLI Pursuit Race on the 21 October start @ 13.00 - entance fee a mighty £1.00 - to go to the RNLI.

What is all this Final Fling! - come and sail all year at Starcross or join for the winter as a Winter member. Very reasonable fees - something like £30- for both autumn and frostbite series.

Andy

Finn 563 and 373

Roger,

Do you mean over night or just parking? You can park outside the club in the lay-by. No dought you remember the railway tunnel/bridge.
Look forward to seeing you on the 21
