GBR: Scottish Series update from Doug Paton
Its that time of the year again… Time we started thinking about organising ourselves for the coming sailing season!
As you are no doubt aware, its the Laser SB3 Scottish Championships at Brewin Dolphin Scottish Series this year. Already, there is considerable interest from teams throughout the country. We have confirmed entries from Local, English and Irish teams.
At present we are looking to finalise the class specific NOR and have this listed on the club and association website. Please see the event NOR here:
Entries can now be made through the event web address here:
Regarding accommodation, Portavadie Marina – where the SB3 class will be based – have reserved the bunkhouse for the SB3 class. This includes reasonably priced rooms including breakfast. I have attached two documents containing rates. I suggest that those looking to secure accommodation do so early as the marina will not hold our reservation forever. They have already told other classes to wait on the SB3’s confirming their numbers. So better get in quick… Contact details for booking are below. Ensure you mention you are the SB3 class when you call to book:
For those travelling from over the pond, we have managed to secure a deal with Stena Line and Western Ferries. To take advantage of a 10% discount off the online price email Alan Ward at Stena Line – firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to get a deal on the ferry from Gourock to Dunoon (if you want to cut down the driving) contact Jennie at Western Ferries on: http://www.western-ferries.co.uk/contact.shtml
I think thats the main issues covered.
All is left to say is, hope you guys can make what looks like a fantastic event and party! We hope to have an SB3 class specific social calendar sorted in due course. We plan to be involved in the main regatta as much as possible socially!
Please confirm your interest to Doug so he can gauge the interest in the event!
