  1. At Datchet we sail on a reservoir which has a sloping base, we decided that we need to adjust the line to suit when the water is inor out or adjust position of buoys to suit, so our lines are 24 meters long secured to a sinker which has a toggle on a 300mm spliced line secured to it. At intervals on the line we have spliced hoops just put the toggle through hoop to reduce line. In addition we use a block on a 300mm spliced line at each buoy and use a counter balance weight (old window sash) to take up the slack and keep the buoy line as straight as possible Simple solutions to varying depth of water it suits what we need and the water depth at Datchet.
  2. The Marblehead ranking season kicks off at Woking in the M&S district, a preferred hotel for skippers to stay over night with beefeater inn adjacent. Ideal place to stay and catchup for the season opener Premier Inn-West Woking (A324) Bridge Barn Lane Horsall, Woking, Surrey GU21 6NL Link to Beefeater and Premier Inn http://www.pub-explorer.com/surrey/pub/bridgebarnwoking.htm
  3. Hi All Great post here for all to take on board, i have for a long time have supported the establishment of class association its the fundlemental move forward for growth in the UK for owners to be in total control of their class. I have spoken to Gavin over many months for a formation of a group of didicated individuals that can move this forward, the marblehead class will follow shortly after. The most important thought is this do we want class association and therefore the owners then take control? I for one will encourage that route 100%. Its the logical path forward for sucess of our sport of radio sailing. I disagree with Mikes comment re filling roles on MYA council as the forward path re class associations will mean the MYA consentrate on a reduced agenda and as such require fewer members on council due to reduced workload that will be carried out at class level. i truly believe the MYA is in a transitional point in its formation, outlook and management in the foreseable future which will require a new and updated constituion as a consequence. Graham Glad you and Victoria are on board with the IOM its the only way forward

  7. Hyde Parks Round Pond was the venue for this years M&S 10 Rater class championship where a committed group of 13 skippers presented themselves for this years event. PRO Charles Clark got things underway setting a windward/leeward course over 2 laps and from the outset is was Graham Bantock who meant business with a string of top place finishes. Other skippers to do well throughout the day were Hugh McAdoo, Richard Uttley and Colin Trower. Racing throughout the fleet was tight with wind shifts keeping skippers on their toes over the large course. After 17 Races with discards, it was Bantock who recorded a solid win, with McAdoo in second with Uttley pipping Trower by a point for third. All skippers roundly thanked Charles Clark and the MYSA team for a great days racing. Interest will now turn to the upcoming National Championships to be held at the popular Datchet Water Venue with a large entry expected as a final hit out before Octobers World Championship at Limone del Garda.

  10. Firstly the currently ranking system is not broken however it's struggles with the volume of entries that have grown over the past year or to. A review is heathy and new ideas are good for the sport and our association. What is a ranking? It's all about perception and actuality depending on who you talk to. The UK ranking system was introduced a number of years ago when our GBR team did not do so well at a WC and discussion took place on how we GBR can improve our skippers and compete on an equal basis with the then international skippers. Those of us that compete within the ranking are very well aware of our strong top skippers we all know who the top ten are and fully expect them to finish appropriately in their pecking order. For the rest of us it's about where we finish against our peers of equal ability and race them in what ever fleet accordingly. Equally the ranking is about 50% of the social activity that happens after the racing for a get together with friends and make new ones. So why change anything? Well I could see an issue before WK with the entry numbers above 60 for a days event and spoke to Peter Stollery a week or so before when we were at Coal House Fort. The entry numbers are heathy and that's a positive but how can we achieve a fair system given the limited number of races in a days sailing with the numbers we have and having to seed then race in heats and finish on A fleet to complete a race. As I said it's good and heathy to talk and review our current system even if we don't change anything assendance is good and I for one are proud of what we achieve on the international stage, so how should we proceed I am not for weighting the events including the Nationals as that could allow a situation to develop that a pick and choose for a number of skippers to get their points in a minimum number of events. The current ranking almost forces those that want to be part of it to attend as many as possible to maintain their position on the list a very competitive approach and should be maintained IMO. We all have a view on how we could move forward and discussion like this is very heathy indeed
  11. Alex is a craftsman and very economical I just had my Quark repaired and a new raised bow added inline with the latest Quarks. John Shorrocks Quark was very badly damaged at the Chelmsford ranking cracked in several places and the tension on the jib pulled the deck up and away. Now fully repaired and he was sailing in C rig at datchet last Saturday.
  12. Hi John It was a shame that you had a low turnout but may be due to a number of issues, 1. Hampton Court event was well advertised and is part of the PRACC series and it was the first A boat event of the year 2. Easter Bank holiday weekend may keep a number of skippers away due to holiday etc. 3. It was also hot on the heels of the very busy IOM ranking weekend at West Kirby the weekend before and there were at least 7 A class skippers at that event that were not at Fleetwood I race an A class but only saw the prompt on the MYA website during the week and as I am away this weekend and next weekend sailing I need to get browny points with my better half. The A class needs supporting at as many events as possible but we have to let the fleet know what's going on well in advance And unfortunately the year book was late coming out this year which I don't think helped. For future reference an email to the class captain well before the event may have helped. Terry
  13. Hi All Just enquiring how many of you would join Datchet Water Sailing Club where this years IOM Nationals were held. The proposed membership fee would be approximately £30/£50 plus affiliation what are your thoughts and how many of you would join this club to sail IOM, 10R, M and A class boats. Great venue lots of potential Sailterry
  14. Thank you all for your comments on this matter which was a difficult call from the race committees point of view, we did have a suggestion to DSQ both boats but I discarded that as you cannot without a hearing, the expire of the time limit was the unknown element thank you Lester for that clarity I totally agree with Gordon's comment on both boats close hauled and sailing for me it was a windward leeward situation which was masked by the actions of Boat A withdrawing his protest due to form incompletion etc and Boat B left in a situation of not defending his actions and we all believed time limit had expired. Boat A comments during the discussions with both skippers eluded to the problem when he stated that boat B was trying to luff him!!! The suggestion to DSQ both boats came from someone who is perceived to know the rules, which is the reason I posted this situation on the forum. Knowledge and the correct information helps all understand the rules a little better especially when running an event. Thank you Sailterry
  15. Hi Gordon Both boats were close hauled and contact was made shortly after B tacked to leeward of A and was sailing to the windward mark both boats were moving at the same speed close hauled. Boat A went off to complete the protest forms, boat B was informed, the time limit expired when Boat A withdrew protest due to unwilling to complete protest form. Race committee had an un resolved contact so both skippers were called. Boat A was insistent that he was the innocent party Boat B was ready for protest but time had now elapsed and was not given opportunity to present his case. Boat A decided to withdraw and retire from race. My query is what would a race committee do in this situation if you have a protest from Boat A on and off the water boat B responded in both cases to the protest stating that he tacked onto starboard leeward but A bore down on him, then after the time limit has expired withdrew your protest but still maintain that you were the offended boat. How would a race committee deal with this situation?
