I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who came it was a really fun event, with some good close racing as well. I hope next year we can have as good an event.

Yes, it was great! Thanks to Cam SC for organising it, some really tactical racing and some strategic weed clearance...<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

Thanks Hannah, it was a good race I really thought you were going to beat me. My dad has put a report on yachts and yachting if any one wants a read, short but sweet.

Glad you all had a good time...sorry we weren't able to make it in the end, was a bit far for the whole family to come just for the day.
How many boats did you get out then Lucia? Sounds like quite a few?!

See you all soon

So sorry we couldn't make it - the builder had to bring fitting our central heating system forward and work over the weekend, so we had to stay home. HannahJ - looking forward to some competitive racing on the Harp in the next few weeks - got the boat back home now...

Burl and Joel

it's OK guys don't worry but we still missed you! we had 8 boats in the end which isn't that many but it's just about enough to fill up the river and just not enough to split up the starts so that was quite scary on the little old cam.

Your right about the pictures Hannah it's just about the only place a photographer can get that close and still stay dry.

Yes, the start line was a little crowded... do you do it in flights with more/bigger boats?

yup, with the oppies it's a maximum of 8 boats per start and that reduces with the increased hull sizes but other than the oppies there's rarely big enough fleets to split the starts, and it's a real pain in light winds because it makes such a difference at cam.

Do you get many howlers? I imagine it would be quite exciting with boats on the plane...

well... we don't sail if it's above a high 5/ 6, because it's a bit scary, but the one time I've been out when it was really windy Emma wasn't there so i stole a little kid to crew and we were the only boat to bit the spinny up but we got scared and gave up when one laser snapped their mast and another launched them self out the water and over a fence on the bank, as you might expect we're not used to that much wind.
