Tidal Diamond No. 250
With the approaching Bank Holiday/LHRW/Gould Trophy
Weekend, this is quite a large TD, so please take care to
read all of it, as there is an important notice at the end.

Langstone Harbour Race Weekend – This Weekend!
The weekend is fast approaching and the event is really taking shape. The forecast is
looking really promising for the three days (yes I know I have just jinxed it!) with wind
conditions to suit all tastes.

We have received some fantastic support from local businesses who have donated a
wealth of goodies to be awarded as prizes. Our supporters include: Chris Hornsey
Chandlery, Chris Rickets (Shanty Singer), Sailstyle, Northern Child, Andark,
Paul Rivington – Sailing Coach, Fullers, Marine Superstore, Startline Marine and
Discover Wine.

For those who have not yet entered, please spend a few minutes filling in your
details online via our entry system.

The event website is packed full of all the information you need, from the notice of
race and sailing instructions, to the event schedule / program.

There will be a curry night on Friday evening – and we would like to extend a
warm welcome to all club members to come down and enjoy the evening.

Gould Trophy Race – Lymington
The annual Gould Trophy race is due to take place this weekend. Please sign up on
the cruiser notice board if you wish to take part. The latest sailing instructions for the
event are attached to this TD. Please note the start line is out of the harbour and not
at ECA as stated in the club calendar.

There is also a sheet on the cruiser notice board which asks numbers for supper on
Saturday evening. David Whiting has reserved a table for 20 at the Mayflower, just
beside Lymington Town SC. He will phone numbers to the Mayflower on Thursday
morning so let him know if you change your mind after Thursday (cruisers@tudorsailing.org.uk).
It looks like a cold weekend at present. Brock is in Southsea for rubbing strake
and GRP repairs, red buoys litter the Solent!

Fun Race / Sail for Gold Torch Relay Race
If anyone wishes to take part in the torch relay race and has not yet organised a team,
please drop me a line or an email and I will pair you up with other interested parties.

Cruiser Yardsticks
The latest cruiser yardsticks have also been published – if your boat is not on the list
and you intend to race this season please complete a cruiser rig declaration and return
it to the sailing committee. A list of the 2012 yardsticks is attached to this TD.
