Northern District Winter
Travelers Trophy Series
Racing for the Link Trophy 

A Brief History of the series and some general comments

This is the third year of the current ND Winter TT Series and the busiest so far, with 6 venues.
We sail for the Link Trophy, presented by Andrew Kissick, to promote better understanding between model and dinghy sailors; thus the ‘linking’ with Dinghy Clubs.

If you know of any other Dinghy Club that would like to host a round in 2009/10 please contact Andy. Any RC Laser sailor is welcome to attend

There is a Club boat available if you know someone who wants to ‘have a go’. Contact Colin on 01524 33903 to arrange. (NB Club insurance covers use of this boat third party)

There is a slightly unusual addition to the normal scoring system. Because we want to encourage skippers to lend boats should the occasion arise, a skipper lending a boat will score either the actual finish position, or his average score, whichever is better. In other words, the lending skipper will not lose out by his actions.

The dates between the TT events will be sailed at Lancaster Club at Carnforth. Any RC Laser sailor is welcome to join the Lancaster Winter Series.

Please note that all competitors must have 3rd party insurance. This is available through Colin, well in advance to allow for the post, @ £6.50 pa. This is the standard MYA Club insurance scheme. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are covered, and a requirement to compete.

Briefings are at 10.15 with the start at 10.30. Last race approx 3pm with a short lunch break
Note that Lancaster breifing will be at 10.30 with the start soon afterwards (the site doesn't open till 10am)

Make certain that you check the website for any last minute changes before travelling just in case of any problems
