We hope the travellers will turn out in force for these 2 Opens. First up is the Cam Coffee Pot - Cam, at Waterbeach, Cambridge on Saturday 21 June. Entry £5.00 BRING YOUR OWN PACK LUNCH but tea coffee and cakes are available at this beautiful Club. Briefing at 11.00 and first race at 11.30 with 2 more in the afternoon. This is a an old school River Club , winding reaches through the Fens. Sadly Gary's sister has arranged a family party and I am unable to defend my one and only win.
Sunday we move on to Hunts, site of the Nationals a few years back and now home to the Moths of - Colin Hall, Richard Keefe, Ted Deacon (who will climb out of Vago/RS300 for the weekend) Gary and myself. Club racing starts at 11.30 and we will have our own start somewhere about then. The club has a staffed galley so rolls, soup etc are available.
So, we have all been West this year - who is coming East?
Jonathan, I will double check with Cam but they have allowed it in the past - and it is a beautiful place, (although last year the lawn was under the River). Also, Gary has altered the number on a sail for you - which we will hand over at Hunts. Not as good as the one you borrowed from Mark but hopefully a step up from the one you have.
No problem. We will let Jonathan know where tents have to be pitched on the 22nd. We do have a designated camping lawn. Fine for any others too, - and no problem if others even decide to put up tents for overnight on 'the day'! Best wishes Lorna

Brilliant, thanks. We'll have two (lightweight) tents as there is a certain amount of bribery going on to let me come to both events, mostly around taking Neha and her sister to Cambridge to shop while I am sailing...
As for the sail - I'll buy you a drink for every place it improves me across the weekend. That should stop you sabotaging it too much...
A scalar went to sea, sea, sea; To see what he could see, see, see. But all that he could see, see, see; Was the determinant of non-invertable Matrices
Race Reports will go up soon but suffice to say that it was complete carnage out there - fun, but OTT in the wind department. More than Whitefriars, which was 'ok' today at Hunts but I gather was madness on the Cam. Toby had a clean sweep both days. More anon.
If anyone wants to get any of the Photo from this weekends British Moth Opens here is a link, if I get time I will put up a contact sheet of the photos 126.96.36.199/~edeacon/British_Moth/ Great weekend thanks to everyone for making it a great time well done really enjoyed it
