Northern TT - Summer 2012

This will be the forth year of the Northern District Summer TT Series
In 2011, 29 different skippers competed in at least one days racing
The idea is to give local skippers the opportunity to compete at a venue they do not consider to be 'home'
Different clubs have their own ideas as to what makes a good  Open Meeting, and it does no harm to look at anothers way of doing things.
In 2011 we had a few problems with the dreaded weed, so keep a eye on the web page before you travel though the venues tend to be clear of weed, at the time of year at the times chosen
The heading on the home page states 'An Open meeting is just a Club race at someone else's Club' and with the RC Laser, we are such a nice bunch ( !!! ) that newcomers are always made very welcome
The Series is once again organised by  www.rclasers.com  who incidentally do not make anything from the series
It is again on the first weekend of the month and this year begins at Fleetwood. Most of the events tend to be Sundays, but check carefully for the occasional Saturday
The prize giving will be after the last event in September
It is intended that the best 3 event scores will count. In the event of a shortened series then a decision will be taken after the non sailed event. In the case of a tie, the next best result will be taken, and so on, until a winner is found.
Sailing Instructions as per the Winter Series will apply
