Bethwaite Series at Belmont including F11s Confirmed for 9 & 10 Nov
Belmont are hosting the Bethwaite Series once again this year, including our F11 class. There are about 15 or so F11s that compete in this series from Belmont itself, so there is plenty of competition for those that can make it up this year.
It is designed to cater to the feeder classes of the 29er, and nearly everyone gets a prize (apparently) from Bethwaite design, its' sponsors.
It would be great if all clubs would consider making room for this event when producing the next season's calendars, giving those that are interested a chance to travel and sail on one of the best waterways you will ever find.
2009 Nationals Confirmed For Eden Jan 11-18
It is now official that we are off to Eden for the 2008 F11 Nationals Championships in January 2009.
Eden is a great holiday destination so it would be very wise to get cracking now with your accommodation bookings etc.
The racing at Eden will be hosted by the Two Fold Bay Yacht Club on Two Fold Bay. Whilst it is inside the two bay area, it is also quite open to the Tasman Sea so it will be one of the best venues for wind guarantee, and the area is great for all kinds of other activities for the rest of the family.
Stay tuned for more details via our website soon.
Have fun over winter,
