Main Event 2017 – celebratory Nationals plans and preparations for the 2017 UK Nationals at Arun YC are under way with a date of 16th to 18th June.

The entry fee of £80 was discounted with a very generous early-bird half-price incentive supported by Hartley Boats until 12.12.16 so only £40 to pay for those who got in early.

As 2017 marks 60 years since Ian Proctor put pencil to paper and came up with the great Wayfarer concept and design we are planning a bumper celebration and a fun-filled weekend. The event has already attracted nearly 50 entries and is shaping up to be a really special 3-day weekend with a practice race and 9 races on the schedule. Sailing will take place on the open sea which allows plenty of room for a large fleet and ample opportunities for catching a few waves for some exciting planing and good length/size courses. With a large entry anticipated we could well opt for a gate start, so if you haven’t participated in a gate start now is the time to look it up and get ready!

Entry on-line through UKWA and Hartley Boats ( , or contact Monica Schaefer by e-mail for further details.
