Hi John... and everyone..
 
I am webmaster for the nacraclass site and I have an embedded google calendar for events..
 
 
I will go through this message thread if this is what is wanted and add all the dates into here..
 
further more I am prepared to put out a cat diary website for everyone...  but I need people and more importantly class associations to give me the info..
 
I too am fed up with the UKCRA site.. I tried to place a rocket under the people responisble a couple of years ago but seems they were not interested.. maybe I need to enhance and make a 'alternate UKCRA' site..
 
your thoughts please......

Hey Yello Streak,

Feel free to add these events to the calendar, it's a good idea. Everything which has been posted in this thread has been added to the first post.

Speaking to the people who currently run the UKCRA site, they also have the same problem, if they don't get the info they can't update the website. Often event dates change at the last minute or they receive incorrect information. 

I guess there are just too many places to look for events and their dates. The main reason I added this was to avoid clashes of events.

Cheers

Andrew

I've also been told about:
17-18 Mar - Fast Cat Open Meeting - Datchet Water SC
20-21 Oct - Catamaran Open Meeting - Grafham Water SC

All the events listed in the first post of this thread have been added to the Y&Y website calendar too (thank you!). Input your class name (or just the word "catamaran") in the search box on www.yachtsandyachting.com/calendar to see a list of all events relevant to you.

Alternatively our feeds work for cats too:
1) simple html table
2) RSS / XML

These will also include the general handicap events which allow multihulls.

I thought the Grafham event had been shelved due to repeat 'vandalism' at the previous three events, or has the issue/culprits been 'sorted'?
Netherless, they are hosting the Sprint 15 class inlands over that weekend.

The Grafham event was added to the Y&Y calendar by Barry (from the club) back in December.

I also see the event is still listed on the club's own website:

I thought I heard that the Grafam event is for 'slow' cats (if they really exist!). Maybe they are bringing the classes in as smaller groups, so they can identify the culprits!
 
They do have the event posted on their website

I have reviewed the list at the start of this posting and from a Hurricane and Bala catamaran club perspective all the events seems to be included.

 

It is possible to put them on a Google calendar so we can link our personal calendars to it? I know this was something that the F18 class did

 

From previous postings the Grafham event was only open to Dart 15ís and none of the fast cat classes. That was my understanding

 

Good to see cat sailors  coming out of winter hibernation

your thoughts please......

If you actually look closely at the events page on the UKCRA website you will see it links to a google calendar for classes and clubs to post their events (it has been set up like this for the last 2 years!!). My partner has been running the website for the last 3 years on a volunteer basis and to be honest, has got a bit fed up with the lack of content sent to us to keep the site fresh. This has been compounded by my partner having taken on 2 jobs in the last  year or so leaving no time to be proactive in refreshing the site.

Bizzarly we were both discussing this very thing together a couple of years ago when we set up the nacra class association

perhaps we could use UKCRA's google calendar instead and if your prepared to share the login then I can update that on your behalf.

We only want to get all the events in one place after all.
