GJW Direct Barnt Green Belle Isle and Short Course

Chris Whitehouse - 04th July 2012

Next stop in the GJW Direct Belle Isle travellers series, is a trip to Barnt Green S.C. over the weekend of 7th/8th July. Two separate events are planned – with the open meeting on the Saturday, and the biennial Short Course Championships to be held on the Sunday.

The open meeting will consist of 3 races, with the first start at 11:00, and two to count. After the standard racing, the club will also lay on their customary single handed race – just to prove that it wasn’t the crews fault after all…

The club have a great Saturday evening planned – with a barrel of Weather Oak ordered and the gauntlet laid down by the commodore, a bring-your-own-meat BBQ, music, and camping available at the club there is no excuse not to have a great time.

Sunday will offer the opportunity to be crowned short course king – with a series of quick fire round robin races kicking off at 11:00 and gold and silver leagues in the afternoon it should be an action packed day.

So what a weekend Barnt Green have in store – with not one, not two, but three trophies up for grabs, you’d be a fool to miss it!
