2016 Monjon Security Nationals, Newsletter No 3

Nationals Banner

Preparations for the 2016 Nationals in Melbourne are proceeding well and there is a feeling from talking to people around the country that we may get a record number of entries. There are still a couple of hulls for charter in Melbourne if you can’t get your own boat here.

Of course the long term weather forecast is for great weather !

The committee has taken up the suggestion from Hugo Ottaway that we have a battle flag competion as mentioned in the last newsletter. We know that not all crews will want to make their own flag and with that in mind we are having flags made up that have a blank area where you can paint / print in your own identity. For those who don’t wish to design your own, you will be given a sponsors flag to fly when you are in the marina (see NOR 3.1) weather permitting.

The idea is to introduce a great deal of colour into the marina area during the regatta and when we are not racing. The flags are being made currently and should be ready in the next 10 days. I suggest you plan your artwork now so you have time to customise your flag when you recieve it on entry. There are 15 customiseable flags so be one of the first to enter to get one and give yourself time to decorate it.
