Sarah D

July 13, 2014 No Comments

Thanks to the skill and determination of Ian Holland, Stuart Moore, Will Rockcliffe and a few other valuable helpers the Sarah D is now finally on the mooring and ready for North West Norfolk Weekend and of course the major event in our sailing calendar the Mirror Miracles 40th Anniversary Nationals in August. I would also like to thank those members who came down two weeks ago and helped me finish painting the Boat. It’s been a long wait this year but when you see her at her mooring, it’s all suddenly worthwhile.

Mirror Miracles Nationals next August 16th to 22nd

October 15, 2013 No Comments

Hi there folks!

This is a very prestigious event, the 40th Anniversary of the Mirror Miracles Association.

We expect between 50 to 60 boats to compete. Children as well as adults. We as a club have committed to supply full support throughout the week. We need definite offers of help for the safety boats x 4, beach masters, various social events etc.

My purpose in sending this missive now is therefore to forewarn members of the event and its impact upon the clubs future vis a vis National events – and to ask whether or not you are able to commit to supporting this event and in what capacity.

We need to be able to plan ahead, SO if you haven’t committed to next years holidays yet, how about booking these dates in your diary and sending me confirmation or otherwise of your ability to assist?

Please, please don’t wait till a week before the event to offer your support WE NEED IT NOW !!!

Many thanks,

Mick Ford

Laser Open Meeting

September 17, 2013 No Comments

Hunts Sailing Club, near St Ives in Cambridgeshire, are holding an annual Laser Open Meeting for standard, radial and 4.7 rigs on Saturday 19th October.

Hunts SC is a family club with about 200 members on a deep gravel pit about half a kilometre square.

They offer keen racing, good food, good beer and plenty of prizes. The details are shown on the poster below.

Hunts SC is near the A14 and not far from the A1, A11 and M11, so driving times might be shorter than people think.
