And calling all those Quarter Tonners on the Continent - here is one for you....

The Dutch sailors are trying to revive interest in the QT class in the Netherlands by organizing their own Dutch Classic Quarter Ton Cup in 2013. They have teamed up with the organizers of the annual Lenco Regatta, which has offered to include the QT class races in this event.

This regatta is scheduled for June 22-23, 2013. It will be held from the port of Lelystad on the IJsselmeer in the Netherlands.

Oh....
and I have left a gap in the Solent schedule for any boats wishing to take part in the Kinsale Sovereign's Regatta at the end of June.....
