Is there a web page for the Europeans yet, and if not shall I assemble something on http://www.intcanoe.org/europa2012 or some such URL? I'm laid up for the next week (hopefully not longer) so if people could send me material like NOR etc I could assemble something.

regards, Jim C

Hope to have a NOR latter this week but for now here is a graphic I have quickly thrown together. Its a bit rough around the edges but it should do for the web.

Well done Chris and tons of thanks for all you have done and are doing to organise this event.

I will be posting off my entry today. I hope we get a good number of entries from the continent. Plymouth is a great venue with the option for the race track to be set up inside or outside the harbour breakwater when it is not too windy and rough.

Chris you may not realise that Plymouth has 'form'. It was August 1987 when the IC Worlds were held at Plymouth but as I had only just acquired my first IC (K26) that year I did not attend, though some who did are still going strong. Am I breaking the Data Protection Act by mentioning Robin Wood who won it, Colin Brown (8th) and Simon Allen (11th)? Also sailing were Steve Bowen, Peter McLaren, Alan Powell and from Germany, Friedel Beers and Annette Gillen. Have I missed anyone? In 1987 as a mere 49 year old I was still swimming around the boat! I now fear I am back to doing that again all too often, I blame it on old age. Own up if you were also in the class 25 years ago and will be sailing at Plymouth this year!

They say when you get old it is OK to look back as long as you don't stare! I am looking forward to the Europeans, though it would need a miracle for my name to get engraved on the Europa Cup again! Let us hope for a huge entry. Sailing on the sea is so much better than inland on lakes as the IC is a great boat off wind in waves. Roll on August.

A miscalculation! I was 44 in 1987, I was relatively new to sailing and racing so I waited till I was 49 to enter my first Canoe event five years later after bying my first competitive IC (GBR 183) from Rob Michael. This was the boat where the sliding seat was mounted on a circular track so it was rotated backwards off wind. The experimental arrangement was never repeated as it took Rob hours and hours to get it right and free of jamming. The one problem was that when sailing the boat, as it healed the seat also healed sideways and tended to tip you off it.

Colin the thought of that seat makes my brain ache... Re the Europeans, bit of a silly question really, My IC 193 looks, sounds, feels and therefore is a canoe, but I have no measurement Certificate, Sails are all measured... but I aint got nothing for the hull etc... is this ok? Sackable offence on 420s etc, do i wrongly assume not a problem for my 20+ yr old IC or do i need to go on a hunt!?

Hello Chris,
I was wondering if you could enquire about visitors' moorings for the duration of the event please?

Thanks,
Simon

The sailing club has two moorings in front of the club shown in the picture below, Might be a bit open to the elements if the great summer weather we are having continues. But These would be the cheapest option, I'll check with the club and see what the charges are likely to be.

Otherwise there are visitor moorings in the Cattewater see here http://www.plymouthport.org.uk/leisure.htm

or the yachthaven marina is next door to the Mt Batten centre http://www.yachthavens.com/plymouth/rat ... tor-rates/
