3 Races to Qualify (see notes)

NB Sailing Instruction Notes extract from :-

Competitors must have sailed one event (using the result) away from their own club to qualify for the Northern Series

The last event at Fleetwood, also doubles up as the last Northern event Summer 2017 and will be the Northern Series prize giving event, along with the Northern Championship.

For 2017 Burwain SC near Colne a  great venue and not too far to travel  with excellent facilities are holding three events this year including a TT. We should all be supporting there thriving new RC Laser fleet.

Please contact Robert on 07977 302696.

Northern Series and TTs how to qualify.

Where events are marked as  Northern District (TT) Event and TT then the results are also fed into the National RC Laser series called the TTs.  

Association membership is required for a TT result to be entered into the National Series, where 3 TT results need to be recorded to qualify, but we are fortunate that in the North West we have four (plus the Sunday of the Nationals if you have entered the Nationals) TTs so we can qualify locally. 

If you are not a member of the RC Laser Association then your Northern Series results are not affected and your results count towards the ND series result.
