We have now fixed a date for an open meeting at Stewartby (near Bedford).

The event is on Saturday 15th September 2012.
See:
www.albacore.org.uk/alb/index.php?view=d..._eventlist&Itemid=33

Stewartby have a new but growing Albacore fleet, currently around 5 boats so it would be great to support the event and encourage the new fleet. Hopefully we can get a good turn out.

The lake is a clay pit and is therefore deep enough to avoid weed problems and shallows, the lake is 220 acres with around 100 acres allocated for sailing.

More details:
Stewartby are becoming recognised as a good venue for events, they have hosted the Streaker and Graduate nationals in the last two years, as well as a number of other opens.

A friendly club, with ample parking and rigging space within a secure fenced site. On the water committee boat, and a number of safety craft with qualified crews.

Camping for events is available free, with a small charge for electric hook ups for those who cannot do without home comforts.

Hot showers, bar, and an excellent galley serving hot and cold food

Sounds great we will make it if we can - looks like being a busy year and not sure about crew availability for this date?
