A couple of messages for competitors and visitors to the weekends upcoming IOM Nationals.
From Rob Walsh:
As you know the Vane A class nationals is before this year’s IOM nationals. I am pleased to be able to invite you all to the Vane A class prize presentation on the Friday before the IOM Nationals starts. The prize presentation will take place at Blackpool & Fleetwood Yacht Club @ Skippool Creek, tickets are £16 per person and the bar is cheap. All those would like to attend that have not already done so, please can you let me know as soon as possible.
Details of this event and others can be found on the event web page http://myachampionships2013.wordpress.com/
From Derek Priestley:
There’s lots of goodies up for grabs in the “in it to win it” draw at the “Presidents de-brief” to be held after racing in the Fleetwood clubhouse on Sat evening after the first days racing at the IOM nats.
Our sponsors have been very generous and have donated prizes including, money off vouchers, rig bags, new top suit of sails, set of plans for new IOM, TX covers, and several, as yet un named items.
There will be nibbles and snacks provided by a local catering company, and it will all be washed down with a large quantity (18 litres) of Chateau Tayac kindly offered by SAILSetc Ltd !!
So if you enjoy a glass or 2 of nice red it’s your lucky night, but if you want to drink something else you will need to BYO.
There will be updates every evening in the racing locker and no doubt “tweets” during the event.
Anyone who has any images of the event please contact us and we will gladly share them with all via this site or the event site.
