Hi,
The Grafham Management Council met last night and today have put out the following statement:
 
"Unfortunately, following vandalism incidents at the last 3 Grafham Cat Opens, it has been decided by the Flag Officers and Council of GWSC that we cannot allow the Cat Open to continue in its present form.  We have decided that for 2012 we will allow a restricted and rebranded event to take place, effectively only allowing boats to enter that have been previously part of the “slow” fleet (including Dart/Sprint 15s). However should similar acts of vandalism occur in the future then GWSC will undoubtedly take further action.

 We are sorry that this means that the “fast” catamarans will no longer be able to take part, but we cannot allow the repeated selfish acts of a very small unidentified minority to adversely affect the event, the sailing club, or our relationship with our neighbours.

Tom Smith,

Commodore GWSC"

The Grafham Cat Open has been the UKs biggest Catamaran event for the last 25+ years and now sadly come to an end.  This is the result ot the vandalism which has occurred for the last 3 years consecutively. Doubtless it was just one or 2 individuals who were to blame, but they have stopped was has been for many the highlight of the Catamaran Season.
