Start Date: 2011-04-22
End Date: 2011-04-24
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.
Parking for Worlds
For those who are heading for the Torquay Open before Worlds (30 April – 2 May) and want to leave their boat at Rutland, to pick it put on their way down that week, then that will be OK. They should confirm arrangements with Triff on: firstname.lastname@example.org
For those who are heading later to the Worlds or Pre-Worlds (starting 12 or 16 May) and want to leave their boat at Rutland then special arrangements need to be made in the Rutland area, as there is a very large event at the Club. Please contact Triff first so that he can make arrangements: email@example.com
The Club has just had its pontoons fully extended and renewed. So if the overnight winds are calm then it may be possible to leave the boats alongside pontoons overnight, rather than on moorings. So you will be able to just walk on in the morning! So be sure to bring fenders and berthing lines, as well as mooring lines.
