Topic : Whitstabuble

Grand day today at Whitstable - we could only make it today as we were priviliged to be invited to Mr and Mrs Andy Jones' spectacular wedding yesterday.

Anyway a really good days yotting (and really cheap too - see other moronic post). Skill was at a premium and all four races were sailed in the end - a different winner in each race!

Now the Champs are really getting near - discounted entries close this week. It will be fun socially and on the water.

So, if you haven't made up your mind, decide now! JUST DO IT!
If you have never done a Merlin Champs you haven't lived.
And if you have - but are not sure if you can cut the mustard this time, don't worry just come and join in, you will enjoy and learn.
And if you are really good I guarantee you wont find it easy to win - but you will be well pleased if you do!

There is still accomodation left if you are quick. We met a really nice lady in the club called Di Leamon who has a cottage for rent VERY near the club - it looks great, sleeps 4/5 and is £750 for the week (her numbers are:01227 264719 / 07947129968)
And other options are on the champs website too

oh - and bye the way - what a great weekend - well done all those at WYC - and still loads of friendly familiar faces - if a little older. Why did I ever leave the Merlin Class - well I never did really.
