An important update for those going to the Nationals at Northampton

1.  If you are staying overnight on site you need to email <> to inform them on your arrival date / time and car registration
2.  No pets are allowed on site
3.  All boats must have a 6M painter attached to the front of the boat in case of emergency.
4.  I hope to have the gate code by Monday evening if you require this then you will need to text me or email me to get it.
5.  All boats must have their measurement certificate for presentation on registration.  This must be endoressed with a valid bouyancy test.
6.  We reserve the right to measure and weigh any boat prior to or during the competition.  Please check with Graham or Colin if you will  be needed to do so prior to rigging at the beginning.
7.  You must enjoy youselves and the AGM details are in the last Chrysalis.



Worried about where to stay?

Each year the majority of the fleet and their supporters (team) camp on site. At Northampton over the last few years this has been free of charge. The Clubhouse is within a stones throw meaning you can stagger to your accommodation (Tent / Camper-van/ Car or whatever you have in mind). At the same time the club caterers have an excellent and very good value food ticket scheme, payable at the beginning of the Championship which gives you food all week (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner). In addition there is tea coffee and cakes. If it is windy then here is your opportunity to build up your weight to keep the boat flat! This means there is no reason to do your own catering.
