Welcome to this year’s Open Invitation Regatta on 17th and 18th September, returning to our established format for the IRC and XOD classes, with three races scheduled for Saturday and two on Sunday, for the cruising sailors we have a timed trial on each day to allow your competitive spirits to flow without the stress of a formal race start!
As is our long-standing practice this regatta is held on the nearest weekend to the 15th September, which is seen as the turning point in the air war with the Luftwaffe, it is to commemorate the role the RAF played in that campaign, to recognise the losses for all and the hope it brought for the future, something for us to reflect on in these current times.
With this year being the Club’s 90th Anniversary the shoreside activities have been expanded to celebrate the event, with a beer festival starting Friday, hot buffet and live music Saturday evening, a Sunday luncheon, presentation to past Commodores and BBQ for the crews returning from their second day on the water.
