Junior Champs and Club Regatta

Junior Champs and Club Regatta – 30th June

Junior Champs and Club Regatta – Saturday 30th June

The long range forecast looks perfect! The theme for the Junior Champs and Club Regatta will be competitive fun, particularly in the Club Regatta :-

Junior Championship 

Open to all Junior members of the club.
Whilst the front of the fleet will battle it out to earn the title of “Junior Champion”, this is a must do event for all Junior members, coaching will be provided on the water to help you get around the course.
The format will be:-
• 3 handicap races, 1 discard.
• First race start time 11:00 a.m.

Club Regatta

This year the Club Regatta is going back to its roots – a fun event for all sailors in the family.
This year the chocolates won’t be going to the “usual suspects” as no sailor who qualifies for the Staunton Cup (i.e. has won a trophy at the club) will be able to win a prize if helming a boat. The idea being to get more experienced sailors to offer themselves up as crew for less experienced sailors.
We hope to have about 20 sailors – who think they are quite good and have occasionally backed this belief up with good results- available to jump in the FRONT of a boat looking to progress its way up the fleet.

There will be two races, with both to count. Neither race will be “standard”, with in-race activities detailed on the day depending on weather conditions.

The first race will be around 2:00 p.m.

Don’t forget there will be prizes for best dressed boat. And also for best dressed sailors – balloons, bell bottoms, wigs, hats, flags everything goes!

Please see your club gmails for further details/ who to contact to sign up as an experienced sailor or to ask to sail with an experienced sailor.
