Sailing Calendar 2019

Reminders and details of races will be circulated via SMS closer to the date of the event.

Please note – Some event dates are ‘spares’ to allow for cancellation due to weather and/or other issues.

Notes:

  1.  All times in bold have 1 hour added for BST.
  2. The Selker Buoy (Position) races are up to 12 hour duration and are therefore not to be singlehanded.  Additionally they will not form part of the main series.
  3.  Saturday and Sunday races will be run as a separate series therefore Spring series Sat and Spring series Sun to cater for those that can attend only one.
  4. Race briefings will take place in the Clubhouse 2.5 hours prior to HW.
  5. Race Officer together with the race sub-committee will be responsible for maintaining the club handicap calculations.
  6. Although there are a lot of potential races, weather will have an effect but we intend to race as many dates as possible.
