  8. Hi All Sorry for the long post but an update on how preparations for the 2018 Nationals are going at Medway Yacht Club. Please visit our Nationals website which is now up and running where you will find lots of important information and an entry list for boats signed up. http://www.sonatanationals.org.uk The Notice of Race is up there and the Entry form for you to fill in and get back to the MYC office. We are aiming for a full 5 days of racing – weather dependant of course! Book before the 1stof July and the entry fee is £95. After this the entry fee is £120. Please help us with the organisation and book as soon as you know you are coming. Thank you to those who have already booked especially visiting boats Joey and Old School! We have asked on this form that you book event Polo shirts. These will be a good quality Polo, embroidered with the event details and a list of participating boats on the reverse. We have kept these at cost price (£15) to make them as appealing as possible. We do need to know in advance to get the embroidering done and there is a cut off date of the 20thJuly. You just need to let us know the sizes and numbers on the entry form. To complement the racing we are also organising a pretty full social programme as well. Details are up on the website together with a booking form. Monday evening – 2 course supper and quiz night Tuesday - Hog roast and Live music and dancing Thursday – Wine and Tapas evening Friday – 3 Course Championship Supper with Live music and dancing We are really hoping you will book all of these events for the below cost price of £70 per person. The cut off date of 1stAugust is to help us with planning but again please book as soon as you know. To be able to offer such value we are indebted to our sponsors. Pirates Cave Chandlery, GWO marine, Wood and Stone, Craft insure and Rhokett. Hoping to see you at Medway in August. Please come and join us. Paul Nationals Committee Watersong

    Metal work - A few questions

    I don't know if you've already seen these pages on the website but just in case you haven't: http://sonata.org.uk/mainsheet-travellers/ http://sonata.org.uk/things-that-work/ http://sonata.org.uk/pushpit-brace/ jack

    Mast Step

    Hi All, Our mast base that the mast sits on, is bolted through the fibreglass of the coach roof, through some wood and another layer of fibreglass before being in contact with the main bulhead. The wood looks like it may have rotted. Presumably the water entering through the bolt holes. Does anyone have experience of this? Is the wood structural itself or is it essentially part of the manufacturing process and once the fibreglass has formed, does that take the compression? Thanks in advance, Steven #
  12. Wanted Plastimo sliding outboard bracket to suit standard Sonata rails. What have you guys got hidden away in your garages!!

    RYA National Sonata Class Page

    I have been co-operating with the RYA to update our Class page and the result is quite pleasing. See http://www.rya.org.uk/racing/national-classes/Pages/hub.aspx Also, RYA have overhauled their procedures for dealing with membership and measurement to avoid last-minute rushes prior to, eg, a National Champs which are sensible changes. An edited text from them is copied below. We have also had press coverage of the recent Inlands at Windermere and in Yachts & Yachting Sportsboat feature, See ‘About the Sonata’ on this site.
  16. Hi All, I have recently become the new owner of Minim, I have never owned a Sonata and in fact, this is my first yacht so slightly in at the deep end - I am beginning to compile the long jobs list to get her back up together and back out racing this season but have a few questions which I hope you friendly lot might be able to help with! 1. Stanchion Bases - Minims bases are fixed straight to the deck - I believe this is original from 1976 but have seen that every other Sonata has wooden packers underneath the stanchion base. Would be great to know if anyone has had this issue in the past and actually whether the wooden packers are required or whether I can just re-seat. 2. Pushpit Reinforcement - I have seen the thread regarding having a third leg for the pushpit and this seems like a very sensible thing - does anyone have measurements or even do we have a metal maker in our association that can make such items?? 3. Traveller/Mainsheet swivel - Currently Minim has a very small traveller in the very centre of the cockpit - I am looking to upgrade this to a full cockpit width traveller with centre swivel mainsheet ratchet block and cam cleat. Again does anyone have a drawing for the metal work they put in or have made one? If anyone has an old traveller track I'd also be interested Many thanks Mark

    Windermere Inlands - February 2018

    For those not following the Facebook thread on this, the Inlands will be at Windermere on 10th and 11th March and looks like we could be into double figures for an entry, which is great given the time of the year!! Thanks to Steve Goacher for getting this arranged
