Captain's memo on Milson Silver Goblets

We currently have good fleet entered including our two past World Champions and a few more entries on the way, so as usual great racing expected. Entries are open until Friday and casual entries will also be accepted for individual races to encourage more boats to join the fleet over the week.
>> NOR, SI & Entries here

A few notes in advance of the week:

Entry, Launching and haul out
To encourage more entries we don’t require Class membership - note this is not a sanctioned event - however Class rules regarding weight limits and sail use are required to be complied with as per the NOR and SIs.

Please do note that boats entering for the series are required to be afloat by 1700hrs on Monday 18 November and are not be hauled out during the regatta and be located at RSYS except with written permission of the RC.

Corinthian trophy - Kopsen Trophy
Last year we introduced a Corinthian category and this year Corinthian teams will be racing for the Kopsen Trophy. The Kopsen family has had a long association with the Etchells Fleet with Bill being one of our most prominent members during the 1980s and 90s.

Please note that eligibility is as per World Sailing Sailor Classification Code and to be eligible, all skippers and crews for all races must meet the criteria as a Group 1 competitor. To nominate as a Corinthian entry, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We understand that being a mid-week regatta, crew changes can and do happen at short notice, so it is the obligation of the skipper to withdraw their Corinthian entry in the event that any World Sailing Category 3 sailors do sail on a boat during the regatta.

Prizegiving
As is the custom, a post-race snack will be provided each day in the CCA bar. On Friday night a short prizegiving will be held post racing with drinks to follow at the Rooftop bar. 

I look forward to seeing you on the water. 

Mike Tyquin
