We kick off with the Grafham Grand Prix on the 27th (not strictly next year, I know) and the Bloody Mary on the 9th, but does anyone have dates for any other epic handicap events?

The RS800 website says the Glyn Charles pursuit will be 15th May 2010. I can't confirm that as the HISC website doesn't have a 2010 fixtures list yet.

Medway Dinghy Regatta, free polo shirts and all, will be on 10/11 July 2010.

The Marathon starts at Medway YC and zig-zags down to the South Kent buoy. A real classic race with lots of long blasting legs (in the right wind). Course record for the 26 miles is around 2 hours!

Thats the third different date I have heard for the event.

The Northampton SC web site says it is on Saturday 30th Jan. 

Is there a NOR online somewhere or an event website?

I think in a newsletter from P&B it said the 30th.
