Solo Northern Series 2018
Friday, November 10, 2017
Thank you to our Main Sponsor Winder Boats
For 2018 we have a busy and action packed calendar available for the Northern Solo sailors.
What Solo sailing events would you like to enter?
Whether you are aiming for an overall podium result, wanting to challenge yourself and improve your skills, or just have the chance to sail and take part at some excellent regional venues there is a programme for you.
We have 12 open meetings and 5 to count for the series.
Northern Championship at Carsington
As a first for 2018, the Northerns will count as two separate open meetings for the Northern Series on the Saturday and Sunday 11th and 12th May. And this event is open to the Midlands area too, so we are hoping for a really strong turnout. The results from both days count for the Northern Championship.
Try if you can to schedule in this event. You will then have 2 results only needing 3 more results to win a qualifier prize! Or if you can only attend one day, either day, the result will count as an Open Meeting.
If you fancy sailing on the sea, come to West Kirby and the challenge of tidal streams. 3 races back to back Saturday afternoon 2nd June.
A trip to the Lakes? Bassenthwaite have been very keen to host an open and have negotiated with the Lake District National Park to allow camping Saturday 23rd June before the open if you like.
2018 events joint with Midlands Area – in 2018 3 events are joint with the Midlands which should bring the excitement of busy start lines and competition. These are at Carsington, Notts County and Ogston.
Add to these a selection of northern venues all with strong Solo fleets. Each of which have a history of hosting well organised and friendly open meetings, there is lots of choice for you. These are at Burwain, West Riding, Delph, Hollingworth, Leigh & Lowton and Budworth.
Finally, I am in discussion about providing a level of coaching at the Delph open meeting as a trial. There will be some top tips shared ashore before racing and at lunch time. Also some on the water coaching will be provided within the SIs.
The programme for the year is available in A4 year planner format, listing regional and national Solo events. If you would like to receive this, just email me listing your sail number and club and I will email you a copy.
Looking forward the 2018 season
