Noble Marine Travellers Trophy (TT)

Jul 27th, Saturday, 2019

In 2019 Girton SC hosts the last open before the Inlands.

Like many of the historic X-gravel pit venues, it offers interesting 'around the island' challenges, although at 90 acres (60 sailable) it is by no means a restricted water.

Those arriving on Friday evening are welcome to join in with the Friday night pursuit racing (7pm start) and also enjoy free camping, take advantage of club bar prices and hopefully enjoy a legendary Girton SC sunset.

Girton SC sailors are active on the Supenova Traveller Circuit and attend many of the other Supernova events and so have well established friendships with members of other Supenova travelling club sailors, which usually results in a good turnout and  competative racing. 

Galley services will be available and a warm welcome is guaranteed.

For enquiries please contact Tony Bleasdale at supernovatonyb@gmail.com or 07950 255747.

Day one of The West Peaks Double Traveller is hosted at the picturesque Combs Sailing Club.

Camping is available at Combs on the Friday evening and Saturday night, so kindly providing the camping base for the whole weekend for double header travellers.

Competitors wishing to camp on Friday night should contact Keith Muncy at keith.muncey@btinternet.com to arrange an access time.

The club will be providing catering on Saturday morning and Lunch, which was kindly included in the £10 entry fee in 2018.

The club does not have bar facilities but the Beehive pub, just a short walk to nearby Combs is recommended for drinks and evening meals and was well appreciated by our members in 2018.

The short drive up to Glossop SC on Sunday morning is via a scenic route along the West side of the Peak district.

Many Supernova Traveller Series sailors include the two clubs in this double header among their favourite venues, always providing a warm welcome, competitive sailing in breathtaking surroundings and definitely well worth the effort to be there.

The Traveller Results to date are now published.

At the halfway point we have already had 73 entries.

This year we are using a custom Class Committee developed high point system weighted to reward results based on fleet size.

This is to encourage the fleet Stars to attend more events as performance is rewarded to a greater extent than attendance.

The aim is to improve relevance and competitiveness in the Traveller Series; if our best sailors engage then the turnouts and competition will be better for all.

These efforts are in combination with monitoring Traveller venue sailors engagement, and searching out and introducing new venues with Supernova fleets to develop.

It is a balancing act, but already it is evident that Top Sailors with just a few results are still in touch with the top of the table, and just a few more appearances can make all the difference.
