Club Racing

Club Racing takes place every Sunday morning throughout the year. We run two races in a mixture of fleets (Laser, Laser Radial and RS400s) and handicaps (Fast Handicap, Slow Handicap and Fast Windward Leeward). The first start of the first race is no earlier than 10.30 and each race lasts between 40 minutes and an hour.

The Sunday morning racing calendar is split into seasons: Frostbite, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter with prizes available for each season.

In 2018 there will be 2 QM Sprint days: on 3rd June & 19th August. These are 1 day events with multiple short handicap races.

Open Pursuit Races generally take place on the Bank Holiday Mondays. 

Between April and September we run a Wednesday evening series where the format is based on an average handicap format with everyone going off the same start line. People stay for supper afterwards and we have a mid-season BBQ on Wednesday 20th June.  For 2018 we are introducing a 'School's Out' Summer Series to encourage under 19s to join in with Wednesday evening racing.
