Noble Marine Supernova Traveller Series 2018

Dec 31st, Monday, 2018

The 2018 Traveller final results (provisional) are on-line.

Congratulations to Garry Butterfield from Bartley SC, who had a great day at Haversham SC to secure the series at the last event of the year.

The results show it was competitive at the top right to the end with only 24 points between the top three.

The Class Association is committed to making the Traveller Series more engaging and better attended.

To this end prizes, scoring systems and double header events will continue to be developed to tease more of the fleet off their home turf.

Many thanks to Noble Marine, all the sailors on the circuit, and the fantastic clubs who make the series possible and so enjoyable.

Hope to see even more of you guys out there next year.

The first day of the Noble Marine Travellers Trophy 'Southern Blast' this year takes place at the well equipped and historic South Eastern venue of Bough Beech SC.

The Supernovas are just one fleet of eleven classes to be hosted at this iconic club in 2019.

Both the history of the club and expertise of the hosting team at Bough Beech SC guarantees this event is well worth a visit from all the Supernova travelling Fleet.

It is also an ideal base camp for an epic sail racing weekend offering camping on the Friday evening and Saturday night, before the leg up to Bartley SC in the South Midlands on Sunday morning.

Attenborough SC is home to Nottinghamshire's biggest travelling Supenova fleet.

Brand new well appointed club house facilities are available on site.

 

Although on site camping is NOT available a buffet lunch and very friendly welcome is generally included in the £10 entry fee.

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.

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