Wayfarer Inland Championships 2019 – Datchet Water 6/7 April

The first event of the Craftinsure National Circuit and Travellers Series 2019 is the Wayfarer Inland Championships which will be held at Datchet Water Sailing Club on 6/7 April. The Notice of Race can be downloaded from here.

The schedule is to have three races back to back on Saturday and three more on Sunday. The event is being held jointly with the Flying Fifteen Southern Area Championships.

As housekeeping notes, the plan for a social will be to retire to a local pub after racing on Saturday for an early supper. Normally there is no camping at the Queen Mother Reservoir because they need to employ a security guard. However, if there is enough interest, camping may be viable. If you would like to camp on site please contact the Datchet Wayfarer Fleet Class Captain, Derek Lambert by email at [del1961@hotmail.com] or by phone on 07986 648625.

2019 Racing Calendar

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).

The Westerns are back!

After the disappointment of Shoreham SC being unable to host the Western Area Championships in May because their new ramp would not be ready, we have been able to reschedule the Western Area Championships as part of the Langstone Harbour Race Weekend on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August 2018 (the August Bank Holiday weekend).

The clubs in Langstone Harbour jointly host an annual weekend regatta which puts on handicap racing but has previously been used by several classes for their National Championships or for class open meetings. The event will be co-hosted by Locks SC, Langstone SC and Tudor SC. In 2018, as well as hosting the Wayfarer Western Area Championships, the Wanderer Class will be holding their National Championships during the event. ...read more
