Boat for Salcombe
As usual i'm being a cheeky chap and wondering if anyone has a boat i could borrow for the merlin open at Salcombe this weekend, Any ideas?
With all these borrowed boats, perhaps we should start awarding prizes for the 1st helm at opens who owns their own boat.
In the old days, I do not know when it changed but up to 1970, you had to be an owner driver to be in the Silver Tiller series, even in those days there were a few who did not own the boats they sailed. The Championships were not included in this though, except, in as much as they too counted as a Silver Tiller event.
I have often wondered why the Inlands and the River Championships are not counted as a ST event. Particularly the Inlands.
I am sure the Inlands (Sunday) races used to.
I'd be interested if the Committee could explain why the results for the Championships and Inlands don't count for the Silver Tiller.
Chris I think that is going a bit far, and Salcombe already has a seperate Silver Tiller event. Parity for Championship and Inlands would seem fair to me but thankfully not my decision! I guess the same person will win in any given year.
The Sunday races at the Inlands would be good. It is a good field, and if you dont want to go for the full weekend just go for the Sunday races.
nice positive responce for simple "ask" - NOT !!
