2019 Travellers Series

Scorpion Travellers Series 2019

The Silver Scorpion Travellers Circuit

This is the National Circuit consisting of 7 main events, needing 4 events to qualify for the series. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 helms and top 3 crews. By scoring the crews separately this allows people to sail in different helm/crew combinations and still get their own set of results.

  1. Staunton Harold – 23/24th March 2019
  2. Scorpion Inland Championships @ Bough Beech – 13/14th April 2019
  3. Llandudno – 27/28th April 2019
  4. Porthpean – 11/12th May 2019
  5. Castle Cove (Weymouth Regatta) – 13/14th July 2019
  6. Scorpion Northern Championships @ Pennine – 31st August/1st September 2019
  7. Scorpion EOS @ Notts County – 5/6th October 2019

A new incentive for this year is to include a handicap system for older boats. Designed to encourage a larger proportion of the fleet to travel, this new scoring system will be used at the Silver Scorpion events only and will be scored in addition to the overall results. The categories and handicaps will be based on a boats age and sail number.

  • Sail number 2001 and newer – PY 1036
  • Sail number 1920 < 2000 – PY 1056
  • Sail number 1840 > 1919 – PY 1098
  • Sail number pre 1839 – PY 1169

In addition to the above prizes there will be a prize for the first “Silver Fleet” helm. A Silver Fleet helm is any helm that has not been in the top 10 at the Scorpion Nationals in the past 5 years. (This is different to the Silver Fleet classification for the Scorpion National Championships.)

Northern Travellers Circuit

Following on from the Class Associations winter survey regarding open meetings and travellers’ events, Regional Circuits was a very popular choice amongst our membership. This is an Incentive to get Scorpion Sailors to travel to events in their local area.

To qualify for the series, you need to complete 3 of the following events. If it is a handicap event your score will be your overall Scorpion position and NOT your position on Handicap at the event.

  1. Llandudno – 27/28th April 2019
  2. Hollingworth Lake – 9th June 2019
  3. Bala Long Distance Race – 22/23rd June
  4. Filey Regatta – 29/30th June 2019
  5. Northern Championships @ Pennine – – 31st August/1st September 2019
  6. Scorpion EOS @ Notts County – 5/6th October 2019

Gold Fleet sailors should be aiming for glory in the Silver Scorpion Series and are therefore ineligible to win prizes in the Regional Circuits overall but can still win the prizes for the individual open meetings.

Only Silver Fleet sailors will be eligible for the overall prizes in the Regional Circuit series.
