An amended Racing Calendar for 2019 has been posted here. Changes include the new Wilsonian River Challenge at Wilsonian SC on 1/2 June and an open meeting for the Harris Bowl at Hickling Broad SC on 12th October.
The Wilsonian River Challenge is a new event and forms part of the Great British Sailing Challenge – essentially a year round extension of the SailJuice Winter Series, which has been running for the last decade. More details of the GBSC can be found here. We understand the Wilsonian River Challenge will take the place of the annual Medway Dinghy Regatta (which has been deleted from the Racing Calendar) and is likely to be well supported by Wayfarers because of the Wilsonian SC’s own Wayfarers and the fleet at nearby Medway YC.
The open meeting at Hickling Broad SC is a one day event which was run for the first time in 2018. If you are keen to compete in an open meeting and come from the Broads area or East Anglia or don’t feel you are ready yet for the National Circuit Series I would commend this event to you. In 2018 it was friendly, relaxed, and was sailed on a beautiful nature reserve – what’s not to like?
(The National Circuit and Travellers Series events are highlighted in yellow on the racing calendar).
