The Burnham-on-Crouch open meeting (aka the East Coast Championship) has been rescheduled for September 17th/ 18th. This is a great venue – sailing on a big river with waves that warrant a chute cover if the wind is the going the right way, and some beautiful Dragons on view. The hospitality is also great – I’d recommend you stay in the clubhouse for the experience. Click here for more information.
Mike Clapp has provided an update on the Fleet Championship, which this year is a combination of the Spring, Summer and Autumn Sunday am series results. About half way through, Mervyn and Gabrielle are leading (just) but there’s a lot to play for with a 2/3rd-1 discount

Only 4 Flying Fifteens out last Sunday but some close sailing in beautiful conditions. The Marblehead Nationals raced off the north ramp so we were able to launch at our leisure. There was a big advantage in heading over to the wall which various people worked out (and forgot) at different times. Mike and Phil used this advantage to take a commanding lead in the first race while Mike and Peter managed to steal a place on corrected handicap – which is keeping us all on our toes. Mervyn and Roger combined their observations of others storming past them in the first race to take the lead and stay ahead in the second race. Despite all this trickery and the distractions of furniture moving for Richard, he and Howard still lead the Summer Series, with their impressive record of bullets.
