The Lymington Silver Tiller will be incorporating Bart’s Bash 2014. 

We have been working closely with the sailing club and the organisers of Bart’s Bash to ensure race 1 on Sunday can count for both Silver Tiller points and the World record attempt.

Here is the bit of admin……..

Still to register?
When you register for Bart’s Bash please can you sign up to the event here, this way we know to expect you and we can make sure your results count!

Already registered for a different club?
21 merlin sailors have already registered, if you would like to change your listing to Lymington, please let me know ([email protected]) and we can get this updated.

We look forward to seeing you in September if not before on the circuit!

Great work Lou and Mark...!

I am also trying to encourage a number of wooden boats to attend as Magnus and me will be re-launching Niane...!

Sure to be an awesome event...

I presume it would be possible just to do the Sunday. Given that it is what time is the first race on Sunday likely to be?

Hi Dave,
Although it is a two day Silver Tiller, if you are just able to do the Sunday we can sort something out. The first start is likely to be 1030 on the Sunday.

I am also only going to be able to do the Sunday, but I am planning on coming.

I will be sailing in Bart's Bash...but not in a Merlin.
Got myself a crewing job in a Mirror from Bosham.

Looks like we may well be there in Dancing Brave (Smiffy) 3763, though looking light and need to sort accomodation

For accommodation try The Mayflower opposite the SC and prime location!

I am hoping to do both days in Heaven Sent but I now have a crewing problem as Ellie has too much work on.  Anyone out there fancy some races in a pretty wooden Merlin, with carbon rig and plenty of string to play with?

Andrew, we are asking around at the club too, I'll be in touch if anyone come up.

Unfortunately we have had a change of plan. Ruth has had to bail out due to work load. So as things stand will not be attending due to lack of crew. have a good evening and hope the breeze holds this weekend

Is there a facility to leave boats at the club tonight (Friday) and if so, what time would be the latest we could arrive?  Thanks!

 The club and bar are open all evening until 11pm. Feel free to drop your boat off on the club lawn.

Lou, thank you for your call yesterday, however I have not heard from Al or Simon but Jon Seward has been in touch and his daughter Annabel is looking to sail so I am sorted now.  Looking forward to it (though just hope the wind will materialise tomorrow!)

Thanks Lou, if we get away early enough we might pop it over to the club.
PS Does anyone else think Gareth is looking a lot like Ollie Turner in his profile pic these days?

Cheers Kieron. 

I didn't post that photo, Mags said that somehow the web has swapped mine and Ollie's pictures over.

Not sure I'll make the first race, paint on the rig won't dry...!

Thank you Lou and Mark I really enjoyed the weekend - I must get out in the boat more!  We could have done with a bit more breeze on the saturday though I did get my best result but yesterday fully made up for it and all those beats into the Solent tide and chop have got me back to work with quite a few interesting aches and pains.  Thanks for all the organising and thanks as well to all the club volunteers, it's a real bonus to have the trolley there waiting when you get to the slipway, and a few free calories to hoist in while doing our sing off did help too.




P.S. - Gareth, get that boat finished!

Thanks from us too, great fun sailing on the bumpy stuff, still got a lot to learn!  Sorry we missed the Prizegiving - small 'pack away' hiccup, Congratulations to the winners - as usual we learn a lot from seeing the quicker boats flying around.
