We’d like to thank McAfee for their support of our event and are pleased to announce that they have also been extremely generous to supply us with 30 annual software licenses for their LIVESAFE product, worth £89.99 each, a fantastic total value of almost £2,700. These will be awarded at our prize-giving for various categories of competitors.
On the subject of sponsors, our regulars will know that we have enjoyed the support of Pusser’s Rum for eight years now; they are our longest-serving supporter, for which we are very grateful. Their highly-prized bottles are much enjoyed by the winners and have become synonymous with the event.
If you know any organisation that might be interested to join our limited group of elite sponsors of the event, it’s not too late to get their name added. Please contact me ASAP to learn more of what we can do for them…!

Classic Boat Revival – 7th & 8th Sept 2019
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.

Wayfarer Inland Championships 2019 – Datchet Water 6/7 April
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 [firstname.lastname@example.org] or by phone on 07986 648625.
Revised NoR for NC & T Series Races
CraftInsure National Circuit and Travellers’ Series 2019 – amended Notice of Race
Many thanks to P& B who join our other supporters of the prize draw, CraftInsure, McNamara Sails, Hartley Boats and Allen Brothers. Remember, in order to have a chance of winning a prize you need to have competed in at least two of the National Circuit and Travellers’ Series events. If you compete in two events, your sail number will go in the hat; if you compete in three events, your sail number will go in the hat twice (increasing your chances of winning a prize) and so on.
Please support the Craftinsure National Circuit and Travellers’ Series in 2019; the racing is competitive and is held at terrific sailing venues, often with brilliant socials; and at the end of the season you could win a new genoa, or a year’s boat insurance, or some other great prizes.
Internationals Bookings Page Now Live
As usual, full details will be available here on the UKWA website as they become available. (The green/blue Internationals logo near the top of the front page will remain linked to the UKWA event page throughout the lead-up to this summer’s championship).
2019 Racing Calendar
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).
