Burton Week 2022 is sponsored by Allen Brothers of Essex are major suppliers of sailing fittings are giving us generous sponsorship again, so there will be extra prizes and vouchers will be awarded. There will be boom stickers for your boat available at registration.
This event is also part of the N12 Dinghy Shack National Series and there will be separate prizes for this series. Bow stickers will be available at registration
Everyone will be part of a buddy team and each day’s winning team will win a prize. The aim is for each team to have a mix of experience and skills which they can share, hopefully those new to Burton Week or the Twelve Class will find this useful.
There are lots of trophies to be won, you will automatically be entered for some of them, but some need you to show on your entry form whether you meet the qualifications. We will acknowledge your entry and confirm the trophies you are eligible for. A list of subsidiary trophy entrants will be displayed soon after registration, but please let the Race Office know ASAP if your entry is not correct, before any results begin to appear!
If you have trophies to return remember to get them engraved, and please, please return them as clean as you received them a year ago!! Please take them to the Race Office when you register on Saturday.
There will be a helm and crew wristband tally system in use for safety and as your race declaration. Those of you who have used this system before know that forgetting to tally means losing your position in races or paying £10 to the RNLI! If you have not used tallies before please ask about it at the Race Office.
The Race Office located in the Club lounge will be open from 1pm on Friday afternoon until a reasonable time that evening! It will be open again at 09.00 hrs on Saturday morning.
Please check in as soon as you can, but definitely before racing begins, you need to allow time to reach the start area for Saturday’s first race which starts promptly at 13.00 hrs.
You will need to hand in the boat’s measurement certificate, with the buoyancy valid until the end of 30th August 2022 or later. We will retain the certificate during the event, but please remember to collect it before you leave on Tuesday. If you are borrowing a boat please make sure you or the owner can produce the certificate on the day.
The Sailing Instructions, trolley tally, plus (if needed) Allen boom stickers and Dinghy Shack bow stickers for your boat will be available to collect.
If either of the boat’s crew are under 18 a signed Parental Consent form will be needed, you may need to organise this in advance. Similarly if a voluntary Medical Declaration is thought necessary then please consider this as well.
Important notices will be posted on the Official Notice Board located in the Club lobby so please watch for anything new. The results will also be posted there as soon as possible after each race.
There will be a briefing at the Clubhouse on Saturday at 11.30 am. Please try to attend as there will be local information you need to be aware of before sailing
Please get in touch if you want to know more about the event or arrangements, need a crew or need technical / measurement advise.
