Nationals Trophies and Prizes

2011 Nationals Winners

Only 3 days left until the Nationals and I know all over the country people are pimping their boats, wishing they had been to the gym more than they have been, watching the weather forecast and dreaming about winning and for some of us last years lucky winners will be getting out the silver polish and cleaning their trophies for possibly the last time.  Apart from Graeme Staddon of course who has spent the last year looking after the Numpty Hats and quite glad to hand them back. 

Of course throughout this season our sponsor Typhoon  have been giving us prizes at all of our open events and will be giving the winning (SX)  boat dry suits to the helm and crew.

Towergate Mardon have also throughout the year given 10% discount to all Hurricane members to insure their boats.

We also have a complete ropepack donated by Kingfisher that is being raffled, each fully paid member of the Hurricane class has received a free entry and many of you have already bought more tickets at £1 each.  It is not too late to buy more and win all the string you need for your boat.

We also have some wonderful shampoo and soap products given to us by our new sponsor Enliven and Hyde Sails have also given us some of their products for this years Nationals.

Well here is a list of trophies up for grabs and last years winners are busy polishing them up and making them shine.
