Our club Flying Fifteen Open Meeting for the Mercedes Trophy is next weekend (7th & 8th April). I hope as many of you as possible are planning to attend.
The Notice of Race is available from the menu above under Racing > Open Events. One thing to note is that it is £10 cheaper if you enter before midnight on Tuesday. You can do this by going to this webpage: –
This form is a little over complicated so please feel free to enter a few random letters if you don’t have all the information to hand. Please enter 01/01/2018 as your date of birth if you are not after the youth prize!
One other thing of importance is that the briefing by the Race Officer is planned for 10.30 as the Wayfarer’s have their first start at 11.30. As our first start is not until 1 pm I will probably present a second briefing at 12 noon in case anyone wasn’t there for the first one.
Any questions, please let me know.
Part 1 of the 2018 Fleet Championships is coming up fast. As with last year this is being held over two Sundays – the first between the Winter Series and the Spring Series on 25th March and the second between the Spring and the Summer Series on 24th June. The plan is to run four races on each Sunday with a total of four races out of eight to count. That means some could win by attending just one of the two events but they need to be brave to not attend the second Sunday as the tie break favours the last race.
The Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions are below. Their will be a briefing at 9.30 on each Sunday. The first race is at 10.30.
See you all on the water.

They ask however if you feel it is unsafe to make the journey, don’t. Team Datchet will still be there so if you are coming, make sure you come and say hello!

Congratulations to Ralph and Sophie.
We have a great couple of days lined up for you here at the club this weekend. Here is what we have going on:
The wind is looking good for the weekend. And the water level has been rising all week.
Hope to see you on the water,
Just to remind you all that this Sunday is our Winter Regatta. The 2 races will be set like a Wednesday evening layout, so different to a standard Sunday morning. Please see a link to the Sailing Instructions below.
After racing will be the Club Christmas Lunch. If you have not already, please put your name and order down on the following document (link below) ASAP.
See you all at the weekend.
