ORDA will be running four races in 2006 - all with basic races on the Sunday, following National races on the Saturday. We are offering lower entry fee's and hoping that the National boats will take part in both races.

We have stuck our neck on the line by bringing costs down (intended around £50 for a basic or £150 for whole weekend) and adding more venues - but we do need support in numbers to make it work!

Onwards and upwards!

Actually I'm fairly sure they were just very bruised - I was there and after a trip to the hospital they were back and being interviewed by Peter Butler - the boat was trashed though!

When your boat goes up in flames I can put the fire out and treat your burns.
Or I can just watch

If ever I'm close to death, and you are around, please, do not, under any circumstances, give me the kiss of life. OK?
