Torquay Race W/end -- Basic Race

Torquay Race weekend - Basic Race.

On behalf of ORDA, can I publicise the fact that ORDA are running a BASIC race at Torquay, as part of the Championship Finals weekend.
We would be more than happy to see as many BOATMAD SUBSCRIBERS ATTEND, & PLEASE ADVISE ORDA SECRETARY SHIRLEY SIMPKINS OF YOUR INTENTIOIN TO COMPETE.
We are running Class 3/2 litre, V-24, OCR,(For Final Points in the National Championships), & Ski-Racing are there too !
I should be a GREAT weekend, starting on Friday 29th Sept.
Torquay Harbour is currently having a re-vamp, so we should be the first organisation to use it in its "new" state.
There is a Saturday night BBQ at THE IMPERIAL HOTEL for a most reasonable cost, plus Prize giving, etc., at the RTYC who have an excellent bar.
We hope to see as many as possible there for a GRAND FINALE WEEKEND to the Season !

Why would he be expecting problems. Race boats are the paragon of reliability are they not?

This is only a draft timetable and has yet to be finalised by all and sundry. Please don't post stuff on here until agreed. It ends up with confusion, or rather more confusion than normal.
