Less than two weeks to the first ever Burghfield Merlin Open, and in case you needed added incentive, it’s the last chance to get a restricted Silver Tiller result before the finale at Hollingworth.
Burghfield is a pretty unique place to sail and we’re going to try and make the racing as entertaining as possible, so why not come and see what all the fuss is about?!
A quiet word of warning - the entry fee is a little steep, so please make sure you pre enter online here: https://webcollect.org.uk/burghfield/event/2017-merlin-open-meeting to save yourself the late (on the day) entry fee on top! We promise to do our best to make it ‘good value’ :). Also you can’t use cards at the club so please bring some cash - the catering (bacon sandwiches and lunch) is great and the bar (as far as I remember...) is reasonably priced!
Hopefully Ellie's amazing flier (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10159402450470472&set=np.1506945175109731.286101286&type=3&theater¬if_t=photo_tag¬if_id=1506945175109731) will wet your appetite and if you love it so much, you can even leave your boats at the club and join in club racing on the Sunday. If you fancy staying please let us know so we can sort a plan for dinner and attempt to find somewhere for you to sleep.
Hopefully see lots of you there!
Just a gentle reminder - the late entry fee comes into affect as of 9am tomorrow morning, so if you're planning on joining us, please remember to enter online. It will also help us make sure there's enough cake for everyone :)
Hi, can someone kindly email me or provide link to these ST results so I can update the overall standings.
Seems I can't paste as a link from a phone but the full results are in the above report.
That didn't go very well I don't think. I'll try again.....
That one should be better....
