I agree that the course should be as near to Naviga length as poss.
However the triangle course is not needed.
We agreed some time ago to run the M course.
Happy christmas to every one.

So which option are you voting for Pete?21st December 2019 at 9:03 am #1376Martin HarveyParticipant
Having had further thought to this issue I think that the main concern is with the hydro 2 class. These boats are getting bigger and to get two of them around the bends has been difficult even with the original course, with many accidents. So for this reason I would prefer at least 10 metres at the ends. I am with Paul Upton-Taylor in as much as no clear comparison can be achieved by a non-compliant course with Naviga perimeter length. Keep the course as it was originally laid out by Ian and George.

I think 10mtr at each end would be ok23rd December 2019 at 11:22 am #1381
I have added what should be the last diagram to my original post in this topic. It shows the course as it would be if it was laid out as per the markings on the lake side. These were kindly taken by Ian Phillips and George Roberts recently, so thanks for doing that in “brass monkey” weather. You will notice that’s this layout has 9mt clearance from the bank sides.
The peripheral length of this circuit is 173.59mts.
One puzzle is if you compare this circuit to the one taken from the Google Maps ariel view (which I am told by David Harvey is from the 2018 Nationals), you will see that they are rather different. I can’t explain this.2nd January 2020 at 7:06 pm #1422Roger GravesParticipant
Just a idea I was thinking of doing at our lake was to make up a triangle Fram from scaffold poles with loops at the ends and dragging it into position.2nd January 2020 at 8:20 pm #1423
That’s a similar way they sort the bouy positions at moers in Germany. The pontoon is fastened to the bank made from scaffolding. Then everything else is attached to this. So the track never changes18th January 2020 at 4:27 pm #1429
Voting will close at midnight on Friday the 24th of January.
