The vane 36 National is special. Why? Because it is. We all started our vane sailing with one, those that have ever only sailed radio should try. As it was once said ”Everyone should have one”. Bournville is the ideal venue, a club with a vane heritage, good facilities, a relatively small hard-edged lake and now the trees and undergrowth have been trimmed back the wind patterns are far less tricky. So, no further excuses, it’s that time of year again when the loft and or the garage needs plundering to find the hull, vane gear and sails for that vane 36. While you are at it get the liniment for your knees down from the shelf as well. You’ve got a few weeks before the National at Bournville so if you haven’t had a play with your vane 36 for some time now is a good time to start. The event is across the weekend of the 9/10 of September and this year we have visitors from the US participating in the National for the first time.
Last year Birkenhead made it a Lads ‘n Dads event to encourage youngsters to have ago and Bournville are doing the same this year. It has always been a “serious” event, there are significant names that have held the trophy and make no mistake it will be just as competitive this year as well. Already we have a radio World champion with his lads, we have a couple of serious radio skippers and some very committed vane sailors so get your entry in and we will keep posted as to who is coming. Watch this space!
We are planning a BBQ at the lake after sailing on Saturday, please let us know if you are staying so we can cater for everyone (and if you have any specific dietary requirements), we will also be catering during the racing on both days.
So let’s get back to where we came in, you know it makes sense, just do it, enter.
