All Highland and Moray Sailing Clubs are invited to send one or more teams to take part in this Junior Team Racing Event which will be held at Lochcarron Sailing Club on Saturday 10th September.
The Gunn Trophy is aimed at Topper Sailors competing in teams of three. The best overall team score over a series of four or more short races will win the prize. There is no entry fee but there may be a small charge for the barbeque at the end of the afternoon. The emphasis will be on friendly competition and team playing. Adults from visiting Clubs will be invited onto rescue boats to help identify sailors and to ensure fair play!
All participants must still be attending School. Scoring will be on a low point system with the aggregated overall score of each team counting towards the final result. There will be no discards. It is intended that competing teams will be sailing Toppers..
This will be Lochcarron Sailing Club's "Sail for Gold Event" in 2011. All competitors will receive Sail for Gold momentos for participating.
The trophy is a scale replica of a British Navy cannon. (It is named after the late Douglas Gunn who was commodore of Lochcarron Sailing Club in the 1990s.) The winning Team will have the option to host the Gunn Trophy Event at their Club in 2012 if they wish.
Briefing will be at 1.00pm. (Probably 2 or 3 races followed by a short shore break and then 2 or 3 more.) Barbeque and Award Ceremony at 5.00pm.
Please Contact Dave Murray on firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries and to notify us of your intention to attend. It would be very helpful if clubs will let us know in advance if they intend to participate.
(Lochcarron Sailing Club has facilities for changing and one shower in the male and the female changing rooms.)
