West Oxfordshire Open – CANCELLED

With regret, the Wayfarer Open meeting and Junior Championship due to be held at West Oxfordshire SC on 18/19 April 2020 has been cancelled because of the developing Coronavirus situation. The 2020 Racing Calendar will be amended as and when we hear of any other cancellations.


Racing Update

Because of the ongoing situation with regard to the Coronavirus and following Government guidelines, the open meetings in April due to be hosted by Waldringfield Sailing Club over the Easter weekend and the Inland Championships at Datchet Water SC at the end of the month have been cancelled.

The Association will work with Datchet Water Sailing Club to see whether the Inland Championships can be scheduled for later in the year either at Datchet or elsewhere.


Camper Vans at the Nationals

If you are planning to enter the National Championships at Dabchicks SC in September and are hoping to use a camper van you will find that most camp sites are a drive or cycle ride (or 30-40 minute walk) away from Dabchicks SC.

However, the organisers have managed to secure a site with a maximum of 6 spaces for small or medium camper vans (described to me as single axle but I’m reckoning that will include up to the size of Merc Sprinters, VW Crafters, Fiat Ducatos and the like but NOT Winnebagos) just a 5 minute walk from the clubhouse on land owned by West Mersea Marine. This will cost £15 per night per van including electric hook-up and I’m told there are toilets and showers on site. Breakfast will be available each day at the Club.

One pitch has been taken already so there are just five left and these will be reserved on receipt of entry to the Championships on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in securing one of these conveniently positioned pitches can you please enter the event and then contact Rachel Ramsay, the DSC Club Manager, at [[email protected]] or on +44 (0)1206 383786

Wayfarer Western Championships 19th & 20th October

Arun Yacht Club are hosting the UK Wayfarer Western Championships on the 19th and 20th of October. Please come along and support the event – you will get a very warm welcome.

On Saturday evening there will be live music (Irish folk and popular tunes) so hopefully there will be lots of foot tapping if not some dancing and it should be a fun evening. Along with the entertainment the meal for the event will be chilli and rice, and vegetarian option, with garlic bread, salad, and ice cream to follow, all for £10.00.

Your support for the event would be appreciated and although we cannot promise summer temperatures we should be able to give you some excellent sea sailing.

If you have any queries please contact Paul Hughes or 07770850462 to discuss it. It will be great sailing.

Classic Boat Revival – 7th & 8th Sept 2019

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

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.
