19 September 2005

Just about a week to go until the Kangaroo Poo speed event @ West Kirby Marine Lake on the 24th and 25th of Sept.

£10 per day for entry, lake fees £5 non members.

There will be demo kit available from Starboard and Tushingham. Thommen boards and Boardwise have also agreed to help out.

There are some great prizes from Dakine, Neilpryde, Starboard, Tushingham, thommen and some great personal GPS devices from Navman.

There will be Male, Female and a Youth categorys. There will be informal coaching for those who want it. Darren Mitchell and Amy Carter have agreed to help, as has local speed man Windy John.

The format is those who have personal GPS will be allowed top use them as long as each device is checked prior to sailing. There will be some very accurate speed guns for those of you who dont have GPS.

Prize giving is planned for the end of each day.

Can everyone please arrive 10am to register. There will be a briefing a 10.30am aiming to be on the water by 10.45 each day. Kangaroo Poo (KPCarl) will be at the end of the car park in his black VW transporter, banners etc . He'll have bibs for people to wear on the water. These are on loan. People with sail numbers can register as per normal race rules.

Lets all prey for some decent wind, thanks to all who have offered to help on the day.
