Sailing for all levels

With both regatta and main fleet racing there is something for everyone at the Optimist and Topper Opens. So whether you’re a skilled sailor or a relative novice please come along. Staunton’s Simon Kelsall event organiser explains; “For those new to the scene, there is always friendly advice on offer in the dinghy park if there are things about the boat you can’t fathom or you are struggling to make your way up a shifty beat.”
