UK Wayfarer Association National and European Championships Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st August

The committee and members of Arun Yacht Club are delighted to invite you to enter the UK Wayfarer Association National and European Championships that they are hosting at Littlehampton, West Sussex, in August.

Many UKWA members will have fond memories of when Arun YC hosted the Nationals in 2017 and they feel particularly honoured to have been “promoted” to running the combined Nationals and Europeans this year.  They promise to put on an equally memorable event!

You will find on this website a copy of the Notice of Race, and an Entry Form which David Robinson, chair of the organising committee, would invite you to complete and return to him at david@bilshamlane.plus.com  as soon as is convenient.  The Entry Form is in Word format to enable you to download, complete and return it to him.  As you will see, entry is limited to a total of 50 boats which will be processed on a first-come-first-served basis.

The “Early Bird” entry fee of £85 will run until midnight on 4th August, after which it will increase to £100 although, by then, Arun YC expect to have reached their maximum entry limit.  When sending David your completed entry form, can you also please pay the entry fee directly to the club by BACS (details of which are on the form).  Only once the fee has been received will your entry be complete!

Although the championship will run from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st August inclusive, the organisers anticipate that many of you may wish to arrive on the Wednesday, so they are delighted to announce that Michael McNamara has kindly agreed to give a “Setting up your Wayfarer” Talk around his boat at 18.30 for about an hour on the Wednesday evening, after which the galley will be open for an informal supper.

It would be appreciated if you could please notify  any Wayfarer members in your club who (maybe don’t look regularly at this website) you think might be interested in competing at this event.

Nearer the event Arun YC will circulate details of the associated catering and social programme and be asking you to reserve tickets, as this will greatly assist them with their pre-planning.

Needless to say, if you have any queries, or require and further information, please do not hesitate to contact David. For further information about the club see https://arunyc.co.uk/
