  1. Hi Richard, Contact Damian Ackroyd for the lowdown on keel trim tabs. They are on Driskys and most of the A class/6m Hollom designs. Derek Priestley is another possibility - he has a Hollom A class 'Hard Tack which has a trim tab. I think you will need a channel with a three position switch on your TX though. Cheers, Shaun.
  2. A report of the open meeting at Fleetwood on the 26th January can be found on the Six Metre website. Worth a look here: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-fleetwood-open-26120.html Shaun Holbeche.
  3. The online MYA entry is now available. We already have four entries with more to come! Shaun
  4. The NOR for the first Six Metre event of the decade is here. The event is intended to provide an opportunity for owners to try out any new items, alternative tuning or even a new boat early in the season. Previous meetings have been very well received by those who have taken part. If you have a Six, even if it doesn't have a current certificate, come along, get it on the water and get help and advice with it. Entries via the MYA entry system ( preferred method) when it goes up for this event or direct by email to me as per the NOR. Shaun Holbeche Notice of Race Open Meeting 26th Januar
  5. The Baker's Dozen Heave to and take a look at largest six metre event list ever offered, coming your way in 2020 . It's time to get planning and work out how you can bribe your nearest and dearest (hint: ) so that you can go sailing at these diverse and interesting venues, all of them worth travelling to. Go up against friendly but spirited competition and enjoy some great days sailing. Take a look here: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/2020-competitions.html
  6. The results for this year's 2002 Trophy competition have been collated and can be seen on the Six Metre Sailing website here: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/2002-trophy-series.html
  7. Just a line to flag that the Six Metre Sailing website has not one but two Rococos up for sale. Both look very attractive propositions too. http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html
  8. Hi TC I saw that on ebay myself. It's a Revival 6m, designer Graham Bantock. Mike Ewart and I were discussing it the other weekend and had both independently come to the same conclusion. It's best suited to lighter wind strength so is an ideal complement to your Tern. Which club are you a member of? Shaun.
  9. Fleetwood MY&PBC are pleased to announce that they will be holding a 6mR Open Meeting on Sunday 25th August 2019. This event does not appear in the MYA events listings but has been encouraged following the response of participants to the April event at the club. It will take the form of a one day meeting to be held at the club waters with plenty of racing on the day at one of the premier venues in the country and the opportunity for a shakedown prior to the 6mR Nationals. More details will follow in due course. Shaun Holbeche.
  10. A report and pictures of The Shearwater Trophy event at the Broads Club can be found now at the class Six Metre Sailing website. Link: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-shearwater-trophy-5th-may-2019.html
  11. There were a few nose dives, mainly coming away from the windward spreader mark but the boat popped up immediately and accelerated away. Once you got going it was just a question of riding the gust for as long as possible. So it's official, 6mRs are not slow. It's just that they tend to be sailed in rather sheltered waters and don't get the benefit of sustained wind over long legs. Results are on the site now as well.
  12. The report now has pictures. Take a look. http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-fleetwood-open-14th-april-2019.html Shaun.
  13. A report of the Fleetwood open meeting can now be found on the Six Metre Sailing website. No pictures at present but I hope to add them soon. Worth waiting for! Shaun Holbeche.
  14. Six Metre Owners We've got the wind booked in at Fleetwood this weekend for some entertaining Six Metre action. Weigh up the opposition, hold a tack, make tactical decisions and find out just how fast your boat really is this weekend. The clubhouse will be open on Saturday afternoon so you can come and practise and get in the groove for the main event on Sunday. We already have a healthy entry so there will be some good racing to be had and a chance to catch up with old acquaintances and meet new ones too. So get those batteries on charge and get booked in via the MYA ent
  15. I don't think there is any great disadvantage in having luff rings or ties so long as the mast hardware (spreaders and backstay crane) can be removed so that the sail can be slipped on. Some might argue that the luff ringed/tied sail sets better when fully sheeted out for downwind legs too.
