A quick update on the season so far…

There was a time when the sailing season finished in October and we all went away to rebuild, repair or replace our boats not returning until March or April. No longer!

Just tipping into March we have already had two rounds of the GAMES series, Chipstead RSC held the 1st round on a cold and wet day in January, and with all Marblehead events, those attending were treated to good competitive racing throughout the fleet.

A full report on the day can be found by clicking on the link below, but the top 3 were:

  1. Nigel Barrow
  2. CJ Vice
  3. Peter Stollery.

The end of February saw Round 2 take place at 3 Rivers RYC. Held in much better weather (the sun shone) and with a record entry for this event the racing was the highest quality with the top 3 this time being:

  1. Darin Ballington
  2. Tony Guerrier
  3. Rob Vice

We also know of regular club racing going on at Ryde MYC with reports regularly being posted on Facebook (HERE) alongside Datchet Water RSC and Guildford MYC.

With the weather getting warmer ( so they promise us) and daylight hours getting longer there will be more action with the M’s throughout the UK.

What’s Coming Up?

The next big event on the calendar is in a few weeks at Lincoln RSC. This is the 1st ranking weekend of 2023 and the final chance for those going to the Worlds to practice in a bigger fleet. If you haven’t entered yet the entry is open on the MYA online calendar HERE. Maybe also look at other M events for 2023 and put these in your diary if you haven’t already?

Finally, please send us any news, information, or images of your M’s, wherever you’re sailing and we will post them on the website.

That’s it for the moment but don’t forget to have fun and get your boats wet in the near future.

See you at lincoln…
