  1. Hi Simon. I know that if the bottom of the mast has corroded a solution is to cut off the corrosion and shim up the foot with wood which might have happened with yours. I guess if you remove the wood and the mast has been shortened you might run out of luff for your main? Not sure how you check this - but someone can probably tell you how! Mast maker? I would leave it alone if that is what has happened. Regards Paul
  2. Hi All Just a quick word to warn you that the early bird discount for the Nationals at Medway is rapidly approaching. £95 if you get the Entry form back to us before the 1st of July. £120 after then. Best wishes Paul Watersong MYC
  3. 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

  5. Andrew Yes it looks very similar to our boom which was replaced about 2006. Have a look if you want. We are back in the water as you probably noticed!! Paul.
  6. Sounds like a great idea. New boats, people and funds for the Association. Be a b****r when they start beating the fin keelers!! Paul
