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 entry system at  https://mya-uk.org.uk/event/nd-6m-wyre-trophy/

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.
