The first Class event of 2011 will be the SB3 Inland Championship to be held at Rutland Sailing Club over the Easter weekend, Friday 22 to Sunday 24th April. This is also the first event of the 2011 Travellers’ Series for the Class.
The format will be 10 races in total – 9 for the Inland Champion, plus a one-off Ultimate Test race for the fastest lap. There are planned to be 3 races on Friday, 4 Saturday and 3 Sunday. For many of you, you will be able to arrive on Friday morning and be back home early on Sunday evening.
Prizes will include boat products from www.marineaglaze.com.
Launching and mooring will be free, and launching will be assisted – you can leave your outboard motors behind.
Over the winter the Club has extended its pontoons by 30 metres (to 60 m), so there will be lots of room alongside to load up. Bring your berthing lines/fenders as well as mooring lines.
For those of you heading for the Torquay Open before the World Champs event, and who may want to leave their boats at the Club, arrangements may be made for this but see later updates on the Class forum.
There will be a Class social on Saturday night, after dinner, and accommodation is available in the Clubhouse at very reasonable rates. See Programme and Info for details.
