Wildcard at Warm Up?
It could be a wild ride for round three of the Typhoon Winter Classics circuit at the Weston Warm Up this weekend. The Weston SC event is a two day event with the first race at 1200 hrs on Saturday.
With the weather about to play the wildcard this weekend positions in the circuit standings could change dramatically. There are a lot of people with one good result who could get into the top group with this event - three events out of the four count.
There is one more event on the circuit to go after the Weston Warm Up, the Hoo Freezer, so you can still get in the overall prizes. Points accumulate to the helm, not the boat, so choose your entry carefully. Total entry on the circuit after two events is 459.
Weston are doing a special offer of free entry to the Warm Up if you enter their following Freezer series at the same time. Remember that entry in the Typhoon circuit is also FREE and as this is the third event, then those who have done all three receive a Beanie hat!
Typhoon International will be providing Winter Riot Steamers to the overall winners at the Weston Warm Up - winner with lowest number of points in Warm Up specified events, tie to be split by most number of first places.
Prizes for the overall circuit winners will include; Typhoon International Racer Dry Suits, Winter Riot Steamers, Edge Wet Suits, Alpha Dry Tops and Regatta Dinghy Boots
