Thumbs up

Well done, I know the RYA are looking forward too. Glad to hear the TV bit came through as well.

We made Channel 5 last year, but more of an educational thing.

Good luck.

dont get put off by the expense,there will be some discount on entrys for newcomers and you will be able to do two national races with day licences before you get your licence upgrade,just to give you the taste.

Hi i think it was agrreed two events on day licences so it could be four races if there are two races held at an event and when you get the bug and do upgrade your upgrade will be reduced by the cost of one of those event licences.
Looks like it could get very exciting especially with a big field of boats
