I see that Battle Of The Classes will be returning in September at the Southampton Boat Show. Are we going to enter a boat(s). Up to two boats per class can enter. I guess we start by asking the fastest person in the fleet....?
I would love to sail at this event. I do think we should use this chance to show off our boat to it's best. We have a host of great sailors that stand a good chance of doing well and getting some attention for our class. As I said I would love to sail at this event but others maybe better suited. Roger Witts, Tim Davidson, Tim Lupton, Robbie Claridge to name just a few.
If the opportunity comes my way I would love to represent the British Moth fleet.
We could either invite the fastest in the class using the nationals as a measure, or we could invite those leading the way in the Somerville series. Both seem to have strong arguments and I wouldn't disagree with either.
I do though think it would be a nice touch to reward those who have travelled and supported the open series and pick the top 2 (or relevant entry limit) ranked boats in Somerville at the time of entry.
