I’m sure some of you will have noticed already but just a quick note to say that after everyone seemed to enjoy last years event so much it has been decided to repeat it again this year. Fixture clashes have meant Rutland were unavailable so Datchet have agreed to host the event instead. It is booked in for 6th/7th September.
Guess the big question is will the Merlins be able to defend the title?
Current sponsors include:
More details will be posted on the Speed Sails website as and when they become available.

More news on the evet; Harken will be sponsoring the event again this year. Anyone who was at Rutland will know they provided plenty of great prizes last time round so this is really good news, we should be able to put more details on the event page at Speed Sails very soon…21/06/2008 at 9:16 am #7042Steve CollinsMember
We discussed this event at the National Committee telephone conference last weekend and we agreed that we should:
1. get some of our best helms thare and try and win it!
2. get as many Wayfarers there as possible.
It’s a great opportunity to promote the class and compensation for the lack of an Inland National Championship this year.
See you there!

Notice of race and sailing instructions now posted on Datchet water web site under events – sailing events.03/09/2008 at 7:21 pm #7261Steve CollinsMember
Latest info on visitors
I understand that Martin Collen and Colin May (ie two out of the top three in the national championships) are attending. Richard and Mark Hartley would have liked to sail their championship winning boat, but understandably want to show it off at the Southampton Boat Show. However we have arrange a suitable substitute in the form of our chairman, Quentin Strauss.
Quentin and Rachel will be sailing our Hartley Mark 4, W10508. Should be interesting….
