Ullswater YC November Open Series 2014 - New Format
14 October 2014 (0 reads)


Whether it was  the aftermath of the Dinner Dance the previous evening or strong winds and high waves, there were no takers for the final races of the Autumn Series on Sunday.  However the 2014 sailing season at UYC is not over yet! Why not finish off in style and enter the November Series which starts on Sunday. With 3 races each Sunday from 2 November, we hope that you will find it even more attractive to sail this series

 Note, there will be 2 races on 30 November so we are not holding up boat packing up, prize giving and you getting home in reasonable time.

Visiting Sailors and spectators welcome.

Galley will be open from 10:00 for soup, cakes, beverages etc.

Just how well will this year's Air Jordan gamma blue 11s retro do give that it's a colorway we've never seen before? We can�t exactly imagine an Air Jordan XI sitting on shelves for too terribly long, but we have a feeling they won't fly off shelves as quick as previous years'"Concord" and "Bred" releases. The sneakers will land a bit earlier than we're used to seeing them-December 21st is the due date. Stay with us after the break for extra images on the "Gamma Blue" Jordan 11 gamma blue 11s and watch for them soon at shops like Nohble.
