UK Regional Event
Derwent Reservoir SC
2 days to go
For those going to Quiberon there remain quite a few roles available for helpers at the Europeans including press boat driver, safety boat and course safety leader as well as shore asked roles.
If you want to help go to the event website and the link is self evident.
We are currently working on getting a trailer(s) to take boats to the Europeans in 2018 in Helsinki.
To get on the waiting list please pay a £100 deposit – fully refundable until 1 November 2017. By that time we will have certainty over the payment schedule and cost – we expect the cost will be in the range £750-£900 a boat for the return journey.
We also expect that a portion of the cost will need to be paid in November with further payment likely early in the New Year. It is highly likely full payment will be required before Easter 2018. (We are in negotiations with a few providers and want to understand the potential demand).
We hope to be able to satisfy all those that want to go but will go down the list in date and time order of those on the deposit list. Anyone wishing to drop off the list at any time before 1 November 2017 will get a full refund.
If you are interested in attending the HK Worlds in Jan 2018 and want to discss shipping please be aware that time will move on fairly quickly wtih shipping of boats in only 3/4 months time. So far only 3 boats have expressed interest and we need to get an idea of the likely numbers shortly.
Please do chat to Nia at the HISC GP or contact her on [email protected] if you want to find out more.

This covers a few notable points - one of which is a reminder that the entry fee for the Nationals steps up shortly - why pay more than you need to ?

The NoR is up and it now looks like this is a 6 day event not a 4 day one as implied.
This means measuring is now Sunday and Monday. Racing Tuesday - Sunday.
