  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. A report of this most enjoyable event can now be found on the six metre class website, Six Metre Sailing . Link here: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-2019-national-championship-7th-and-8th-september-2019-dartmoor-mbc.html
  5. A report of the Open Meeting can be found on the class website Six Metre Sailing now at: http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-fleetwood-open-2582019.html Thanks to all competitors for making it a successful and enjoyable day. Shaun.
  6. Entries are now being taken for our second 6 Metre open event of the year. No big trophy but plenty of sailing to be had, plenty of room to do it in and hopefully a good wind to play with. Come along and get your eye in ready for the Nationals. Entry via the MYA system when it appears or contact me directly via email with your details. See the 'Events' section here in the forum or the Six Metre website http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/fleetwood-open-meeting-25th-august-2019.html for the NOR and email address. Shaun.
  7. NOR for the forthcoming 6 Metre open meeting at Fleetwood. No chance of you wearing your folding seat out here. Six times more of everything on offer NOR Fleetwood 6m 25th August 2019.docx
  8. The results and pictures of the Doug Tomlinson Vase, which also formed the Eastern District Championship and Round 2 of the 2002 Trophy are now on the Six Metre website along with an introduction to this year's National Championship venue from the hosts, Dartmoor MBC. Take a look. http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. I'm going to the Broads this weekend. Looks like there will be a bit of wind too. It is a shame that they are both on the same weekend though as I'm sure there are skippers who would have gone to both venues but can't do it in one weekend. However I believe there is one who is intending to do just that ! I would have liked to have sailed at Dartmoor, but I'm working this Saturday anyway. Shaun.
  13. 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.
  14. The report now has pictures. Take a look. http://sixmetresailing.weebly.com/report-fleetwood-open-14th-april-2019.html Shaun.
  15. 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.
