There is a clear consensus that Mounts Bay is too far away, so I have informed the club that we won’t be taking up their kind offer this year.

Fortunately, Waldringfield can offer us an open meeting that weekend 2-3 August so we can go there instead – should be a good warm up for the nationals.

Netley SC can’t host an open meeting for us this year, they have already finalised their fixture list. No response from Highcliffe yet.

Lymington Town have a Regatta on 9th/10 August, so we should be able to tap into that.

Mike is working on the Eastern Part of the country and waiting confirmation for a date for a Southerns at Shoreham and an open meeting at Hickling Broad. We assume that Bough Beech will have a finale event in November?

Waldringfield will have their normal Easter Egg and ‘Cartoon’ events.

Mike and I are toying with the idea of a National Circuit (see below)
What do you think?

National Circuit and Area Championships
The winner of the national circuit will count their best four results from the five meetings listed below.

14-15 June Warsash SC Western Area Championships
