To lead in with our update we trust you find our new website a little easier to navigate through a wider range of device formats with a few more things to look at.
2016 - Thanks for the Memories
After a more than successful 2016, we have a full wrap of the year past covering our results from around the world including the IOM Europeans and both the Marblehead and 10 Rater class Worlds over on the 2016 News page HERE
IOM – International One Metre Class
May in 2017 sees the World Championship for the IOM class being held in Pierrelatte, France with another full fleet entry anticipated. Our BritPOP!/POP will again be our recommended choice of design for the coming year as we feel it continues to offer all skippers the best available package to compete and perform at the highest levels across a full range of conditions experienced, whether that be a week long event or a full season of racing.
On the UK front, entries are now open for the Nationals to be held this year at Datchet Water SC over the Bank Holiday weekend of August 26-28. More information can be found on the GBR IOM page here
M – International Marblehead Class
2017 will see our production Grunge steadily appear around the world with skippers declaring their interest dating back from initial launch in 2012 having been contacted with an offer of taking up a production slot with our licenced builder Robot Yachts. Production boat #4 has landed in Australia and is currentlybeing completed for the ARYA Nationals of which we are a proud sponsor of the event at our home club there.
With the 2018 Worlds set down for Germany, this season has in place a healthy calendar of open events and looks to be another good one here and abroad for the class. The German Nationals in May has a near capacity entry with many skippers eager to get some practice in on the Biblis venue for 2018.
Locally, this years Nationals will be a cracker at the UKs traditional home of the Marblehead at Fleetwood. To be held over 3 days the event promises a large entry and all that goes with what we all take for granted from the Fleetwood club. More information can be found on the UK class website here
10R - International Ten Rater Class
Our Trance is now safely back in Australia in preparation for the Nationals in the hands of its soon to be owner/s. It is great to see a good entry there for the event where the Ten Rater class continues to grow in strength with new builds hitting the water regularly in a number of states.
Here in the UK we have the Nationals set down to follow on directly after the Marbleheads at Fleetwood in July where it is hoped that owners will dust off their yachts after such a strong event last time the class came north in 2015. With Worlds spots up for grabs, the ranking points may come in handy.
More information can be found on the UK class website here
The upcoming year will provide a new challenge as we await the arrival of the latest boat to our family. No hints as yet other than it will be a huge step outside of the comfort zone, keep the mind fresh and rapidly let the body know its age......They say a change is as good as a holiday!
Look forward to seeing you on the water soon.
