The Club also conducts sailing races over the May – August period, open to both dinghies and yachts.
We take an opportunity to make further use of the Club’s facilities and the waterway on which it is located year-round, by way of holding a series of six friendly handicap races.
Yachts compete for the Marine Watch Middle Harbour Trophy.
Dinghies will be accommodated, and a series prize awarded if there are sufficient regular starters. As in previous years the club will not be supplying any manned rescue craft.
The proposed dates for 2017 are:
Sunday 7th and 28nd May, 18th June, 9th and 23rd July, and 20th August.
Handicap start commencing from 11:40am
