The annual Hunts SC D-Zero open is getting close. This open is usually well attended with boats numbers up in to the teens. This year will also see a D-Zero demo day on the following day with people invited to stay on and show both the club and any prospective D-Zero converts just how great the boat is.
The open itself takes place on the 5th May 2018. the club will be open from around 08:00 for visitors and the first race is scheduled for 11:00. A break for lunch will follow with 2 further races scheduled for the afternoon. 2 races to count towards your score. Entry fees are £10/boat an you need to be a Class Association member. Temporary membership is available to anyone who borrows a boat at £5 for the event and can be paid on the day.
Also this is the first round of the Hunts vs Grafham Challenge, an idea thought up by Grafham D-Zero sailor John Aston. There will be a small prize (as well as bragging rights) for being the highest placed D-Zero from either Hunts or Grafham that competes in both events.
So if you fancy a challenge on a small bit of water that is very well suited to the D-Zero them come and join in the fun on the 5th May or come and have a go on the 6th May.
