Busselton Country Championships

Hi All,

Busselton this weekend.

The Four races will constitute the WA Sharpie Assc Country Series. The Winner will receive a mystery prize, rumoured to be either a $10,000 sails package and personal instruction from Sharpie Great and custom sail maker  Andrew (Hip's) Harry or more likely the mothballed Metro Trophy (if I can find it ) and a carton of Corona's. Trophy last seen by John Hilton 2007. John Please let me know if you have it?

Heat winners on Saturday will be expected to slide the plastic once the sun has gone over the horizon.

With Three to Four boats out regularly and Kym Nisbett's  boats refurbished and ready to race the Metro Clubs could soon be out numbered and out gunned in our annual pilgrimage.

Planning on windard leeward format as with the last 4 races. With the forcast showing temps in the high 20s' and 15 knot SE winds it will be a great weekend and everyone will be in with a chance.

For those intending to come down for the weekend please let me know so we can organise enough beer and food.

Results of the previous 4 races will be posted on the website this week. It would appear, Vern is the early leader closely followed by Team Vicious and Vita Brevis. All the rest have either had breakages or no shows and are carrying discards.

Cheers,

Craig Mann
