Events Calendar

The following are events where you can see the boat, meet the team, and maybe have a sail in her yourself. We already have a few confirmed dates for the 2004 season and are still recieving invitations from time to time. Please contact us if you would like us to bring one of our boats to your open day, arrange a demonstration or try one of the boats on our home water (Cardiff Bay). Note that we may be unable to meet every request - we have to build boats sometimes!

24th & 25th June 2004: Cotswold Water Park

We are going to Whitefriars Sailing Club where the Access Championships will be held over the weekend, we will cruise about during the practice days to provide a little variety.

5th June 2004: Cardiff Bay (provisional)

A taster day to demonstrate the variety of boating available on Cardiff Bay, details to follow.

22nd May 2004: Milton Keynes

We have been asked by Milton Keynes Sailability to take a boat to Caldecott Lake South for a day's sailing. We have also invited some enquirers from the Dinghy Sailing Show who live in the area, if you want to come too drop us a line.

3rd May 2004: Chase Sailing Club

We are going back to Chasewater to sail on their open day on Bank Holiday Monday, we are hoping for a good day's sailing. If you are in the area come along and have a go.

24th April 2004: Langstone (Nr Portsmouth)

Guests of the Langstone Sailing Club. Their sailability section in particular want a look at the boat, and give it a try out.

22nd April 2004: Neatishead (Nr Norwich)

Demonstration for the Nancy Oldfield Trust. While the idea is for them to try out the boat, they have generously said that other parties from the area can also take part. If you are interested let us know please so that we know to expect you. We have to be off the water by 3:00 pm to get the boat back to Cardiff.

17th April 2004: Newhaven and Seaford (Between Brighton and Eastbourne)

We are going to be at Newhaven and Seaford Sailing Club's open day. They sail from Newhaven Marina, Seaford beach and Piddinghoe pond. We will probably sail on the pond, but don't really know until we have checked it all out on the day. Still, you will want to visit all three sites while you're there. The club is having a membership recruitment drive so if you need a sailing club in the area it could be worth a visit!

27th March 2004: Chasewater

The boat will be at the West Midlands Regional Conference hosted by Chasewater Sailing Club for the RYA coaches and instructors to try out.

6th & 7th March 2004: The Dinghy Sailing Show

We have booked our space at Alexandra Palace again. We will be on Stand G25 in the West Hall, near the Live Events Arena. Come and have a close-up look at the boat and a chat, and don't forget your cheque book.

31st January 2004: Cardiff Bay Yacht Club

We plan to be sailing most of the day, weather permitting, as all of the WYA instructors will be there for a meeting. (Unfortunately we could not get to pick up the sails in time, they were at P&B for them to copy/modify ready for the new boat. In any case they tell me that the weather was really foul, but I had a nice warm lie in!)

11th September 2003: Whitefriars Sailing Club

We have been invited to a special day there. A recruiting drive has resulted in one new member of just 92 years old. She has sailed before as a teenager, but apparently things have "changed a bit since then".

16th & 17th August 2003: Northampton Sailing Club

We will be on Pitsford Reservoir for two days (actually we will be there or Friday too, but that is for Pinnell and Bax to check the sails and do some sailing tests with us).

14th August 2003: Rutland Water

The Manta Equation will be at Rutland Water, mainly to give the 2.4 sailors something to look at, and Val wants a sail. Bit of an informal day.

13th August 2003: Whitefriars, Cotswold Water Park

We have been asked to take the boat to Cotswold Water Park to give some children from Chernobyl a trip round the lake.

20th July 2003: Llangorse Sailing Club
