Programme Summary

The programme includes a series of 6 events in a variety of formats, each organised by a different yacht club.
Use the links to see detailed information on each event - sailing, socials and logistics. Information may be provisional at present but will be amended and expanded as plans are made.

If you would like to be kept up to date, please register your interest.

Entry procedures will be posted in due course. All racing with be in appropriate divisions: Divisions A and B will be merged; Divisions C and D will merge; A Division E will be added for 1st Rule boats. The original 1907 Rule, as published by Lloyds, specifically allowed for boats built to the 42ft Linear Rule, to be allowed to sail as 12mR, so such boats will be admitted to Division E.

In addition to trophies for each event, an overall series trophy will be awarded, based on best three results.
