Sorry Bob didn't mention that as thought it was club basic only, is that included in the BCC championship ?

If you can find a navigator I believe SEPA are the first to offer training in Kent sometime in April ( give Sheena a call )

Would they not drop into BCC3 Class ? It would allow a bit more flexibility without having to comply with 3B rules

In 1995, I navigated in a 3B boat.

Top speed was 74 mph (certified on Windermere).

We did 15 races that year -

Good stuff - Coming 2nd in the 3B World Championships.

Good stuff - 8 race wins

Bad stuff - First of the losers in the 3B World Championships.

Bad stuff - The other 7 races.
