There has been much discussion since the nationals on what is the right thing to do with respect to measurement. It did become very apparent that weighing the boats was a must.

There has been discussion about having a silver fleet, leaving possibly only the gold fleet to go through full measurement, but again this is also difficult to keep everyone happy.

What is the qualifying criteria for the silver fleet? Or gold fleet?

One suggestion has been that to qualify for the gold fleet you have to of finished in the top ten ar previous nationals, or of finished in the top 5 of another fleet.

We also need more definition about hull weights and what is included.

All suggestions welcome.

Re Gold / Silver fleets:- at Lyme the helms volunteer for their fleet but on the understanding that the Silver fleet cannot win any of the major prizes. If this were adopted at the Champs the Silver fleet could have their own prizes eg bottles of wine and obviously be eligible for the Nita Tapp Trophy (last boat to finish all races)
There would be no point in a hot-shot bandit volunteering for the Silver fleet, and no arguments about allocation between fleets. This has worked well at Lyme - as a back-stop the Sailing Sec has the power to allocate boats to fleets, but there have not been any rows on this point
