Burghfield Silver Tiller - 9th March 2019 Briefing 10.15 First start 11.00 Four races (two before lunch, two after), mix of windward / leeward and round the cans Followed by afternoon tea See website for full details and to pre-enter - worth doing as it gives you a £5 discount. https://www.burghfieldsailing.org/open-meeting-preparation-1/bsc-merlin-open-2019-1 Please note, there is a height restriction barrier at the entrance to the club drive... you may need to unhitch your boat to get under. If you have a double stacker please call the office as you get close and you will be let in.
Oh and the website has been upgraded since last year so pre-entry shouldn’t be a faff.

Thanks Ellie. Entry process great. Sailing Club Manager: that being my bete noir from 10:00 Saturday 4th November 2017. Happy memories.
Thanks Graham. Fingers crossed it will hold up to the hundreds of entries we expect to come in just before pre-entry closes (at midnight on Wednesday)...
For those of you not on Facebook.... today is the last day of discounted entry. Please pre-enter by midnight to save your precious beer tokens!!

Thank you for running such a memorable event. There were photos which would be very good to see....
Thank you for making the trip up. We absolutely loved having you all. There was a real buzz at the club about the Merlins sailing at the club! Mike’s photos are on Flickr here:- https://flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157677088631357 He was off on holiday Sunday morning so said he’d share a few that evening then will post the rest when he gets a chance to go through them. He did say he didn’t get as many as he hoped of the Saturday morning epic as it was pretty bumpy out on the water and they ended up helping with rescue... but I’m pretty sure he’s just try to manage our expectations. The ones so far from the afternoon are still pretty cool. Will share the link again when he’s updated the album. See you all soon, Ellie
I understand there was a correction to the results, the correct results are on the results section of this web site and Burghfield SC. I will ask Y&Y to replace the results in their article. Well done Burghfield a great event in challengeing conditions!
Hi all, Mike has uploaded the rest of the photographs - there are now 129 fab picture up on the link above. He said that they are at a resolution good for screen but if you’d like a version for print then get in touch with him and he’d be happy to help. All the best, Ellie
