So we are a couple of days out from the DF95 Nationals at Eastbourne. We have a bumper entry of 60 skippers and if you are one of those skippers you should have had  an email from Jes Collier about the social arrangements for the weekend. Friday is Italian and Saturday is Chinese, if you want to join in please reply to the email as directed.

It’s promising to be a light weekend wind wise so there will be plenty of time for catching up with people you haven’t seen recently. There might be a shower or two on Saturday but generally the weekend looks pretty good on the weather front so don’t forget your suncream and also a comfy chair to sit in!

We have had some news from Alton Water who have, sadly, had to cancel the TT we had planned for September. They are having ongoing issues with Anglian Water and cannot guarantee that these will be sorted by the time the TT comes round. We have decided not to replace this event as we have our “away day” event in Holland soon after which covers the September event.

Other than that it’s time to concentrate on the DF95 and DF65 Nationals. Good luck to all those competing.
