New Spinnaker Design
Elvstrom Spinnaker News
All new 707 Spinnakers which have been ordered during the Winter Offer will have the new Vertical Centre Panel Layout.
The Vertical panels transfer the loads evenly through the sail, rather than hitting the old horizontal panels at 45 Degrees causing distortion.
The main advantage will be when close Reaching , as the Spinnaker should be more stable, dead running any advantage will be negligible.
Note. When Designing a Spinnaker we only lay panels over one half of the mould and Laser cut each panel twice for perfect symmetry.

Event dates 2012
We now have confirmed dates for all the major 707 events for 2012. In addition to the regular events, I am very pleased that we have reinstated the Southern Areas in our calendar, after a gap of a few years. The event will be run as part of the RSrnYC June Regatta.
|May||5-7||Eastern Areas||Royal Corinthian YC||Burnham on Crouch|
|May||26-27||Northern Areas||Scarborough YC||Scarborough|
|June||9-10||Southern Areas||Royal Southern YC||Hamble|
|July||19-22||National Championship||Stone SC||River Blackwater, Essex|
|September||29-30||Scottish Areas||Royal Forth YC||Edinburgh|
The National Championship will be at Stone Sailing Club on the River Blackwater, as discussed at the 2011 AGM. It promises to be a great event, so book the time off work now! Detailed planning is in progress, and we’ll let you know the programme, NOR, SI, etc as soon as we have them. Racing will start on Thursday 19th, but you will need to get your boat in the water on the Wednsday. I know you will want to get accommodation sorted out, so here is what is available:
Camping will be available on the club grounds and camper vans can go in the car park
Waterside Caravan Park is a commercial site which is about a 15min walk from the Club. Check it out at www.park-resorts.com and select St Lawrence Bay.
There are also self-catering and B&B properties available, see attached list
If you have any questions about any of the events, please contact the appropriate area rep or class chairman Paul Gray.
I look forward to seeing you at as many of the events as possible!
