Ho hum ..........
Regardless of all else we at EMBC shall be continuing with the Fun Day concept Smile
The first EMBC Fun Day will be on the 27th May - all are welcome, the chat is good, the tea & tabnabs are free and the company is exceptional
The key point of course is that there are generally no competitions as such, but S&D course etc. is laid out for folk to practice (play) on.
We will run the Club Nomination Competition and are quite happy that visitors also partake although their results can not be counted against the Club Nomination Prize award.
We've been doing this for over 10 years and generally we get a very good turnout of those who simply want to sail their boats and have a goodly gab fest
Who knows, if we can agree some sort of Federation principle for this type of competition, possibly scores can be aggregated over a number of 'Rounds' regardless of which Club hosts them and count towards a Federation Trophy awarded at the AGM.
This way we could encourage a moderate amount of travel by ensuring that no one club hosts sufficient rounds to qualify. This way at least one other club would have to be visited during the sailing year.
