Datchet Fast Cat Open

An event not to be missed; dust off the cobwebs, and join us for this now traditional opening event to the season.  See our new changing rooms and improved bar and new caterers.

Date: 22nd & 23rd  March 2014.

Time: No start on Saturday 22nd before 12.30.  Weather permitting and early start (10am) on Sunday 23rd  so you can get away in good time (No start after 14.30 on 23rd ).

Classes / Starts: 1- Hurricane 5.9 /  2 – F18 & F16  /  3 – Handicap  TBC . These starts are subject to suitable numbers entering the event. As well as being an official event on the F18, F16 and Hurricane circuits, this year it is also a ‘ranking’ event for the A class. This event is for cats  with a SCHRS of 1.034 (Hurricane & Spitfire) or quicker.

Races: We will schedule 4 races for Saturday and 3 for Sunday. Stand by for the traditional quick turn arounds, and don’t get caught napping!

Accommodation:Travelodge at Langley (just across the M4) can be booked online for around £26-00, and the Travelodge at Heathrow T5 for around £21.00.

Boats: boats can be dropped off during the previous week (not Monday or Tuesday) and picked up the week after if it helps.

The wind is booked, the sun is booked, the ‘tide’ is high and I can’t see that changing!

Datchet, Datchet, so good they sailed it twice! – Well, as we traditionally start the season, we are now also looking at running a cat open at the end of the season. This would be for the whole ‘cat family’ with two separate courses and all boats welcome.

We look forward to seeing you all in March and maybe again at the end of the year!
