Oh and the website has been upgraded since last year so pre-entry shouldn’t be a faff.

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
