Re campervans/motorhomes - afraid all the hook-ups already gone. Still plenty of room on the Bay View pitches - first come first served.
Hi Everyone. The Inlands' Sailing Instructions for next week are as above.
To save time, money, paper, the planet etc. we would prefer if you read/download them from this link.

Very pleased to see that, of the first 10 entrants, 8 have lady crews and one has a lady helm too.
Any more takers?
Subject to conditions think we ve got 4 coming from Wembley will try to get them doing online jobs entry
Thanks Colin. Look forward to seeing the Wembley Gang.
If you could do the forms that would be a real bonus for me. Failing that, just email me boat numbers, helm & crew names and meal tickets required. Cheers

More details re programme below.
Inlands Champs - must be Windy?
OK, so when I looked at my favourite random conditions allocation system (XC Weather) this morning Saturday was a very reasonable F4/5, warm and dry. Overnight was horrific, F8 - F10 and for most of the day! Even the motorhome was looking at risk. So, some contingency planning this morning. If, and I do say if, armageddon comes to fruition, we will still have a fantastic weekend. The programme is flexible and we WILL sail as many races as possible in the best conditions available. Since looking at the options, the weather gods have relented somewhat so no immediate decisions required.
But, the disco is booked, the galley will be on song, we have lots of goodies to hand out as subsidiary prizes and we already have 12 entrants (and I know of more promised). So, get your kit packed, check your passport is ready, plan to head for The Inlands by The Sea. We are going to have a great weekend at Boating on the Bay, Cardiff.
If we need to change the schedule, first gun WILL NOT CHANGE - Sat 12.55. SIs are published so I will post any SI Change to the race details on here by 19.00, Fri 21st Sep.
