All Highland Clubs are invited to send teams of three juniors to compete for the Celebrated Gunn Trophy!
Saturday 31st August
This is a fun event. Sailors must still be at school to compete and should be able to bring their own boats. (It may be possible to borrow a Topper -- but this is not guaranteed.)
Briefing at 11.00a.m. We plan to run 5 or six races -- with all results counting towards the final score. The day will end with a barbeque and prizegiving. There is no fee to enter.
If requested, informal coaching may be provided on the water.
Please contact D Murray on email@example.com for more information.
Notice of Event:
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 31st August.
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 2014 if they wish.
