Re: New to canoe sailing....

I am sure others will know the full history of GBR249... but the register has it down as originally called 'Sundance' and later 'Acquadissyact'. Originally grey in colour. Built in 1993, but no builder logged, although I would presume it was a Razorback. (Rob?). Glad you had fun. They do get easier ...

Re: B Class Canoe Photo

As a matter of interest, I did some research recently in some of the other canoe classes. It was very interesting. I couldn't really work out what rhyme or reason there was to the class lettering in an international sense. There seem to be US Classes, Royal Canoe Club classes and Swedish classes. Mo...

(just re-read your post and see you were asking about the 'C' class, not the 'B'....woops) You asked, so here you go: These are the 1929 Rules, there were previous Class B rules in: 1914 and 1894 B Class 1929 The "B" class sailing canoe- length overall shall not exceed 17 feet (5.181m).

6-8mm construction core-foam

Hi Guys, or those coming down to Plymouth... Has anyone got any spare 6-8mm core-foam offcuts that I could filch and which they could bring down to Plymouth this weekend? I have got to fix a hole in a friends boat and it looks like the only foam I have in my workshop is some rather heavy 10mm kledge...

Re: A new champion

I am sure he will be!

But have to say: If the weather forecast stays as it is, then Chris Hampe is on form and looking good too.

We did the Port of Plymouth Regatta last w/end and gave the fast handicap fleet an IC sandwich. He won and I came last :-)

Re: Converting carriage to go fore and aft

<damn it, wrote this yesterday but it never got sent> I think the answer would be....'it depends'.... Tell us more about it. What boat, when built, construction etc. etc. photos? The fact that you are asking, would make me suspect that it might be a job that you would do best to leave to someone els...

Great bit of history for the IC class

Some early photos of ICs in the 1930's have just turned up on ebay.... not sure if we have any budding historians? I would love to, but just rather borasic at moment. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320898366137&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:GB:1123 Item No: 320898366137 cheers eib

Re: Easter Sailing

There are various places you can go in.... you can try and find space at the club (or on beach by club - depending on tides), although I never do, as it gets very tight and I imagine will be full of lasers. I normally go into the public dinghy storage area. Carry on past the club and take the steep ...

Re: Easter Sailing

Great news! I have fixed rudder and hopefully it will stay attached to the tiller now....although you never know. So am planning on being up at Rock by lunchtime tomorrow. It is possible, that I might take the boat over to Padstow and race from there for the Saturday-Monday as it is much closer, but...

Re: Easter Sailing

No, not at the moment, I am trying to track down a NOR. At the moment, all I know is the start times. Friday is an evening race and Saturday to Monday is early. Was reckoning on pitching up on Friday afternoon and sorting it out. My only problem is, that I took my rudder apart this evening cos the t...
