Whilst planning our 06 season last night we were disappointed no ST meeting is listed for Abersoch is this right? Being based up north to travel to the South Coast to get a sea result will no doubt impact on Northern Qualifiers !

Yes - I think William Warren may be away skiing but I know about this.

Thanks Pat for explaining why the meeting has been dropped - last year the forcast of high winds put us off due to our lack of sea sailing experience others may have stayed away for similar reasons . Given the strong attendance at meetings such as Rutland Blithfield etc im sure sufficient demand exists for a sea meeting within a reasonable drive of the North and Midlands as not everyone is able to travel as much as the frontrunners in the ST do .

Sorry to use your forum name will change mine as you were in first . If fellow sailors in the North are not interasted in a sea meeting within approx 3hrs drive then this is a poor reflection on them . Maybe a Northern Circuit is the answer to my woes !

I think it's a real shame. Those of us that have made the trek have usually been rewarded by a stonking yot every year. The turnout last year was more than a little disappointing 'tis true. Hopefully it'll be back for next year...

The problem is its still about 4-5 hours for me as well, and its over 2 days which means overnight expence.

Abersoch. Its a great place to sail. Almost in the Midlands but a better motorway network from the North so like to think of it as their event.

Burn more carbon fuels to speed up global warming so that the Severn sea comes up to Evesham!
