Welcome to the 2019 Classic Boat Revival!
I hope you have been enjoying the summer so far and have had some good sailing. We are really looking forward to this year’s Classic Boat Revival which will be held over the weekend of 7th & 8th September in Bosham and whilst we don’t expect 2019 to be quite as big as last year’s Ian Proctor Centenary, when we hosted over 90 boats, across 34 classes from 22 clubs, we do hope many of you will be able to attend again this year.
The format remains much the same with a series of five races over the weekend, although we may well use more extended harbour marks than the Olympic courses used last year, to spread the fleets out and to utilise more of the harbour. ...read more
Many visitors like to make a weekend of it and come down Friday afternoon. Registration is open from 5pm and there will be relaxed supper available on Friday, which will require pre-booking. On Saturday evening we will be having some live music and a casual supper. The bookings for supper will open once the menus etc are finalised. Breakfast will be available on both Saturday and Sunday morning.
Full details of the event, including the Notice of Race (also attached), are on the Classic Boat Revival website.
We are using a new online system for entering & paying for the event along with ordering our 2019 branded shirts and ever popular art posters.
We would therefore be grateful if you could confirm your participation as soon as possible.
Through the generosity of some club members, we have a limited amount of free local accommodation available for those visitors participating in the event. if you are interested in this, please contact us via [email protected]
For those of you active in club and class associations, please feel free to encourage others to participate. We are hoping to evolve the event and to this end are looking for themes & ideas for future years by working with class associations or other organisations. So if you are a class with a strong vintage or historic element, we would be very happy to discuss building an event around you, in addition to our wider fleets.
