Rob and Annette have decades of race winning experience and you will be sure to pick up some good tips to improve your race day.
Adults are £16, Youths Juniors, £11 - you can't day sail for less than that!
Remember the car park is £2 and the card machine won't be available - so please bring cash.
Hot food will be available from the galley.
Please e-mail if you are interested in coming along.
Briefing at all events is scheduled for 10.30 with first race at 11.00. Usually two races are held before lunch and two afterwards, weather permitting.
Entry fees for 2018 are Adults £19 and Youths/Juniors £9.
BEGINNER RACERS VERY WELCOME:
One of our functions as a region is to introduce newcomers to racing. We run a “Grand Prix finish” system so even if you manage to complete only one lap you get a position. Beginners to racing are especially welcome, please see our “Starting Racing” page and please feel free to email or phone us for advice. If requested, there will be a special “Beginners’ Briefing” after the main briefing at events.
BUOYANCY REMINDER:ALL sailors are advised to bring buoyancy to ALL events, for those under 18 it is compulsory at all times and for the rest the Race Officer has the power to require all sailors to wear buoyancy if he decides it is necessary.
OLD RACEBOARDS FOR YOUNG SAILORS:
We recently advertised an IMCO raceboard free to a young sailor and we had several replies but had to disappoint all but one. If you know of any ex-sailors needing good homes for their beloved raceboards, please put them in touch with us, you never know, they might earn some brownie points with management and not feel too guilty about parting with their treasure.
