Calling all older boats, Updated!

The Dinghy Rope Midland Series will have Vintage prizes.


The Midland Series will have Vintage prizes this year. I'm pleased to announce Fernhurst books will be providing one of their books to the first place Vintage boat at each event. The prize will be called 

'The Fernhurst Books Vintage Boat Prize' 

My original definition of a Vintage boat was boats older than 4268 but looking at last years Open meeting entry list there were very few boats this old competing. I wish the prize to be a meaningful competition, with many boats competing for the prize at each event, so I think for the first year it will be better to say boats with sail numbers below 5000 (built before Feb 2009) will be classed as Vintage. 





The first event is at Dryacote on April 1st.
