Super 8 Update
The Craftinsure Super 8 Series is underway with the 2016 End of Seasons kicking things off in October and the 2017 Nationals selling out in an amazing 29 days! Due to the unprecedented demand Championship Chair Gill Beddow managed to negotiate us an extra 10 places, taking it up to 80 boats, after that we will move to a waiting list. Sponsored by Dinghy Rope, Impact Marine, Allen, Exe Sails, SP Boats, Paintcraft, Gingerboats, Zhik, Cornish Orchards and Sailpics and HD Sails is set to be the most popular Nationals since 2004.
The first two Championship events of this year are coming round fast with the Midland Areas on 08 and 09 April at Staunton Harold Sailing Club and the Inland Championships on 06 and 07 May at Bassenthwaite Sailing Club.
Entry fee for the Midland Areas is £27.50 and there are 6 scheduled races with 1 discard if 4 or more races are sailed. Camping and motor homes are welcome on site and the briefing will be at 11am on the Saturday morning.
Sponsored by Ginger Boats, the Inland Championships will cost £50 per boat and include an evening meal for two people on the Saturday. The club will be open from 5pm on the Friday and camping is available on site, for tents, caravans and motorhomes. This needs to be pre-booked, and costs £7 per unit per night.
