Masters Practice and events QMSC:
We are now making good use of the J80s at QMSC and following a very successful 2 boat random pairs events both at the Mum’s Bucket on 17th April and the Masters Team Racing cup event on 20th March more events are planned.
Next date for your diary is the Masters Team Racing Random pairs final on 18th September when all Masters (helm 45 and over, crew 40+) when all Masters are invited to attend even if you have not taken part in the qualifiers.  Young “hot shots” from the ranks of the Academy and BA Cup team will be invited along to act as tacticians on each boat so that the all the Masters taking part learn from their experience.
