UK Fastnet 6.50 NOR & Entry Form Available
« on: February 12, 2007, 20:27:26 PM »
Dear all,

We are delighted to announce that the title sponsor of the UK Fastnet 6.50 is Chris Parsonage Racing.  Chris Parsonage is no stranger to the marine industry being  both the owner and the throttleman of the successful class 1 powerboat, King Of Shaves.  There is no doubt that with his support the UK Fastnet 6.50 will be a fantastic event.  Further details may be found on his website http://www.chrisparsonageracing.com/

We are also pleased to report that the notice of race and entry form is now online.  They can both be found on the Royal Western Yacht Club's web page at http://www.rwyc.org/rwdb/article/view.asp?id=225

Entries open on the 26th of February.  The event is limited to 50 boats so don't delay in getting your entry in, any mini is welcome from all parts of the world.  The race has been sanctioned by Classe Mini meaning that the miles completed in the UK Fastnet 6.50 will count towards your Transat qualification.  The French Mini Fastnet last year had over 180 entrants, so make sure you are quick with your entry!

The race director for the event is Chris Arscott.  Chris was the race director for the OSTAR 2005 and has no end of experience of short handed racing.  With Chris behind the wheel the race is guaranteed to be a success.  The Royal Western Yacht Club continue to work closely with the UK Mini Class to help promote the class and organise what is shaping up to be a fantastic race for this season.

Further information about the event or the class can be found by contacting either admin@rwyc.org or info@open650.org.uk

Regards,
James Tingle,
UK Mini Class Association.
