Cowes Week Update
With just 3 days left in the office until Cowes Week starts, I thought I’d drop you a note regarding a couple of points!Gill Sponsorship
UK Laser SB3 Class Association Official Clothing Supplier Gill will be generously supporting Cowes Week with prize vouchers for first, second and third overall in the Laser SB3 Class. Vouchers will be posted to the winners immediately after the event! This is great news for the Class and I’d like to thank Gill for supporting the fleet at Cowes Week.
Gill Class T-Shirts
Order now and collect/pay in Cowes. Gill have provided us with a fantastic class t-shirt for 2010. The shirt is a black, technical shirt with UVA protection and is produced from a wicking fabric (which means any sweat is absorbed!) They are really smart and have a very simple logo on the chest and back. Each t-shirt costs £20.00 and includes a ticket to the 2010 Laser SB3 Class Draw. Shirts are available in: S, M, L, XL & XXL. Please reply by return if you would like to arrange shirts for Cowes Week and I will arrange for them to be delivered to your boat.
Come Racing at Cowes Week
If you have friends or family who want to go sailing at Cowes Week but you have limited or no sailing experience, now is their chance! LaserPerformance and Cowes based Pelican Racing have joined forces to return Come Racing to Cowes Week 2010.
Come Racing will run from 4pm on Saturday 31st July to Thursday 5th August 2010 and offers the opportunity for non-racing visitors to Cowes Week the opportunity to take to the water and get involved in the action.
Ten Laser SB3 will be available each day for a fantastic “have a go” opportunity. No sailing experience is necessary as each boat will be helmed by an RYA qualified skipper. All participants need to do is bring a pair of soft soled shoes with them, everything else will be provided on the day.
For just £10.00, participants will learn some basic sailing skills and enjoy the chance of racing against nine other Laser SB3’s at Cowes Week.
In 2009, Come Racing was a sell out, with all daily sessions fully booked well in advance of Cowes Week. For those wishing to have a go, places can be booked by contacting Pelican Racing by telephone: 01983 201587 or by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information, please visit www.pelican-racing.co.uk Come Racing costs just £10.00 per person.
For those of you taking part in Cowes Week, Good Luck, let me know how you are getting on! I’ll be situated at Pelican Racing for the week, so drop in and say hi!
