I don't know about anyone else but I'm starting to get very excited about the fast approaching Lark Winter Champs! only a few weeks away and the committee are pleased to announce that Harken will once again be sponsoring the event!

Details of the event, the dinner and accommodation will be up on the website soon

As it's been an extra long time since the last major event, the turn out for this years winter champs could be the biggest in recent years.

I will be there with the mighty BRUCE sailing with my lovely wife and crew Katie for her comeback event to the class after some time out to give birth to my future light airs crew 'Jack'...So who else is going to be on the start line??!!

Yes really looking forward to it, Smarty Pants is so excited that she's already ready and waiting in Northampton!

For anyone who hasn't been to a Lark Winter Champs before it is the event of the year which definitely can not be missed!! A weekend of fantastic sailing and socialising.

With Saturday night being our yearly prize giving for the GJWDirect Belle Isle Series, please can I remind all 2011 trophy winners to return their trophies to me at registration on Saturday (with trophies cleaned and engraved) ready to be awarded to the new 2012 winners!

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

lets get some excitement going for the event!

this is a fantastic occasion where you can sabotage the people doing well by buying them drinks half way through and ensuring they have a healthy hangover.

I am going to be there propping up the fleet but hopefully in a much sexier boat (mid life crisis is kicking in) Northampton never fail to run a good event and a good social, so lets show some support!

Ah yes, the event where I wake on Sunday morning hoping the racing will be cancelled due to severe hangover

Note to self: don't fall asleep wearing contact lenses and try and put a second pair on in the morning, your vision doesn't get twice as good.....

Hope you all have a great weekend. We'd love to come but there is something else going on this weekend which is apparently more important...

Good to see Bruce on the water this year though!

Only a few days to go now until the winters. If you are planning on coming to the Winter Champs and would like to come to the Saturday night price giving dinner, please book your tickets asap. It's quickly booking up and we need to finalise numbers with Northampton SC on Thursday AM. So make sure you buy your ticket before the end of wednesday not to miss out on the fun!

Can I also remind everyone competing that all competitors (crews as well as helms) need to be a member of the assocation for the weekend. if you are not a member you can happy join on saturday morning.

See you all on Saturday.

Ladies and Gents... word of advise make sure you look at the old DJ prior to the weekend, mine's going to need a seamstress before it's fit for a public outing..

Oh and get the brain thinking about some annual duckhams!!
