Notice of Event:
All Highland and Moray Sailing Clubs are invited to send one or two teams to take part in this Junior Team Racing Event which will be held at Lochcarron Sailing Club on Saturday 19th 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 will 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 and the Committe boat 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.
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.)
Briefing will be at 10.30am. (Probably 2 or 3 races followed by a short shore break and then 2 or 3 more.) Award Ceremony planned for 4.00pm.
Please Contact Dave Murray on email@example.com with any queries and to notify us of your intention to attend. It would be very helpful if clubs let us know in advance if they intend to participate.

Many thanks to everyone who donated baking and to those who manned the tea tent, who at least stayed dry, and George and Doug who braved the appalling weather to run Sink the Fleet and Whack the Rat. Despite the torrential rain and cold we had a good day selling huge numbers of hot drinks, especially hot chocolate, and all the baking. The smoked salmon baguettes proved a hit and we even sold a fair number of strawberries and crème fraiche. Well done David for organising everything for the tea tent.
