2010 Salcombe Week entry forms
The forms are all ready to post on the SYC website but.............. it won't let me!!
The 2010 Merlin Week entry forms are now on the SYC website, follow the link below......
Entry in the post. Will entry numbers and selection be the same as last year.
and I can't spell either!
And who will be rigging the spinnaker of 3550.
not the helm!
Same as in my boat.
Glad to hear it John!!! Look forward to staring at her beautiful transom!!
Glad to hear that John!
Will a list be posted showing the forms that have been recieved to avoid people calling John to see if he has recieved their form?
Indeed they will Martin - so far I have 7 in and there are others winging their way down to sunny Salcombe as I write this!!!!
So far I am the only entry not a Veteran!!
Most excellent I shall look forward to watching my entry appear in the next day or so!
There are but 45 entries, have my fiscal rules gone that far astray or are there other forces at play?
Just tired of being ripped off, pushed through a tidal sluice in flukey winds and getting parking tickets.
Ah! so thats where Gordon Brown has been going wrong! Memo to PM ' Easy way to raise money - allow councils to fine people for parking in places they shouldn't...............'
Can't quite reconcile Punter's grumble with what actually happened in Salcombe last year and this.
Salcombe newbie this year and have to say I thought it was great. 5 shared a house at £121 each for the week with enough parking for two cars two trailers and a motorbike. Who could grumble at the yacht club beer prices and not just on the Thursday either? certainly not us Midlanders used to Broad Street or Hurst Street prices. If I have half as much fun next year it will still be a great week.
Yes I agree 'Punter' seems to be in a minority.
We love it down in Salcombe and have been for the last 4 years now. Our entry was straight in the post. As for parking, last year I parked on the street up the top of the hill to avoid the the car park fees which was fine as the car was there all week, but next year we have a free parking pass with our cottage.
As a relative newcomer I did find the logistics of Salcombe a bit more complicated than some places. I enjoyed my first year doing rescue, and it made the second year - with boat - much easier. I think maybe I've got it taped now ... except for the sailing, that is.
Douglas has a point, if it's your first year talk to someone you trust who has been before... The Redditch rabble turned up totally clue less and tender less...we did not even know where the house was or the Dinghy Park.. come to that where is Devon...oh we went through there on the way to Looe last year.
With only about 60 odd boats on the list today, are we heading towards not having a lottery this year. That is unless the Salcombe posty had a very large delivery for John this morning... or maybe he has dozed off and not updated the list for a week?
Sadly I have updated it today - Mr Duffell was the last one on the list.
O dear, when was the last time this happened?
Could do better!
Smaller fleet means I will get a better finish than this year where the blue fleet seemed to be made up of 20 odd crews that would never ever give up! So when a dozen or so finishers from the other fllet joined I was going to get a high 30 place finish at best.
