I am in negotiations with the farmer to try and get the use of his field for the August bank holiday 24-27 so i can eat a few more cats in 2012.

As a thought would it not be an idea to have a central catamaran diary so we can see when and where all cats events are being hosted including the long distance races??

Just a thought

There is an UKCRA one John but I don't think it gets updated, hence I thought this would be a good idea.

Here is the link to the calendar.

Donít get me started on the UKCRA site. It is never up dated and there are boat for sale on there that have been sold on twice since first appearing on the site.
 
Given that this is the most up to date and active forum for cat sailors it would be good to have a calendar that everyone can see what is going on. Good start with the google calendar.

I agree the UKCRA site could be updated more but we have to remember that people are all volunteers working on the updates, good on them for taking on the job.

Let's keep track of the events, this was more for my benefit with the Tornado website.

On another note, they probably don't know about boats being sold. If you send me over the boats that have been sold I will pass them onto Carl and Colleen for removal from the site.

It would be great to have a tool which people can add to themselves but I know from experience that the spammers just love that sort of stuff.

Cheers

Andrew

The Y&Y online calendar has a 'feed' page which can list events for just one club or class - but it also handles general multihull events too.

This link will show a basic web page of all multihull events:
www.yachtsandyachting.com/community/calendar/feed.asp?type=HTML&class=237
It's also available for RSS.
(This might help you more than the 'search' page, where you need to enter just one class.)

Now, it looks a bit bare at present, because we have reached the time of year where open meetings have died off, and people are arranging next year's dates, but have not published to Y&Y yet. Always a sorry time of year for any online calendar!

If the cat classes/clubs send in details of any fixtures already booked (such as the ones listed in the first post on this thread) to Y&Y, the link above will then give you a better idea of clashes in 2012.

If you wish to add your own events to the Y&Y calendar, please sign up:
